Te jong en alcohol smaak. Leuk maar niet top.kan beter
Rum tasting in Amsterdam continued with Flying Dutchman No.1. Nice old school bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Strong oak and fruits straight to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong but sweet burn at the end. Better when mixed with your favorite soda.
A Nice rum. You can taste te cognac atmosphere (which I don’t like) But the aftertaste is sweet and soft.
I drink my rum with cola light. The cola light insures the taste of the rum.
Easy on the nose and palet, light rum. Never knew Dutch rum existed - I am pleasantly surprised. Drank it neat an mixed, both easy drinking.
I liked it, has a decent taste and is pretty complete.. not to sweet, nice flavours.. good rum if you don't look for special
FLYING DUTCHMAN PX 5 YEARS 70CL
Vanilla tast, fruity and almost candy like tast.
First i was doubtfull as a Dutchman buying the very first rum ever from my own country but i am suprised in a good way. Maybe the price would be better at €25,- euro's instead of 30,-
Don't expect wonders of it but it is a descent rum. Oh and don't drink it with a cube it weakens the rum to much.
The first rum ever made from The Netherlands by the Zuidam family.
The PX stands for the fact that this rum is preserved in former wine or port barrels.
The fermantation of this rum takes a minimum of 2 weeks wich is longer then usual it gives it a very sweet almost candy like taste.
