Now this is some good stuff
I had cheated and opened it in advance :) Without hesitation pure 10 :) It has awesome aroma -> like cream marshmallows and tutti-fruti + little chocolate and caramel :))) this is the most similar to 175th anniversary edition. But much more full of the taste. It is really sweet with strong end. You can also taste typical A. H. Riise aromas. This one will be another in my A. H. Riise collection :))) I cant wait :) It is my cup of tea and the aroma and smell is really ultimate :)) I can smell it all day long -> like candy store and pastry-shop :))
Sweetness -> 9/10
Strength -> 4.5/10
Tonight we have tasted the El Dorado 21, the Cubaney Centenario, the QRM 30 Aniversario and Zacapa XO. This Riise Black Edition is simply the best of them!
The bottle of A. H. Riise Non Plus Ultra Black edition itself must be one of the nicest rum bottles ever made. It looks like a very high end carafe with diamond quilt pattern on the bottle. Label is very bland and non-descript. Color is artificially dark, almost blackish. Very strong butterscotch and orange peel to both nose and palate. Artificial flavors abound. It should be sold as the worlds most expensive spiced rum.
A little bit worse then non plus ultra - very rare(the interesting thing is, this one costs about 90 EUR, and very rare is cheaper, about 70 EUR), because at the begining I feel(a little) - strong alcohol fumes like some cheap vodka.... I love sweet rums, but this one is too much for me, mainly in combination with this strange kind of artificial flavour and strong alcohol fumes. I am disappointed, I tasted "very rare" before, and expected from this minimum 10/10. Update: I found the strange artificial flavour is probably licorice, (or sweet wood), and I don't like this herb at all...This rum is not for me, especially not at this price. But....not great, not terrible.
This is the most surprising rum i have tasted so far. its really sweet, if u dont like sweet rums maybe stear clear of this one. I really liked everything about this rum, from the amazing looking bottle to the smell and surely the surprising taste. Its smooth,creamy a bit smoky. I love it,the only reason i didnt give it a ten is that i have so much more to taste and i can't think this is the best out there.
Surprise en débouchant la bouteille. Et mauvaise surprise. Au lieu d'un grand vieux rhum, on a un sirop à la fraise tagada ( très bon au demeurant). Mais la déception est là, surtout vu le prix. Quand j'achète un rhum épicé, je préfère le savoir avant d'acheter la bouteille. Très belle d'ailleurs. Même si c'est la meilleure boisson à base de rhum que j'ai goûté.
The bottle is a high end old rhum bottle, the prince is the one of a great rhum, BUT, surprise, it is not. A sugared flavoured syrup. Who is not my taste, even if it is a very good one. When I buy a spiced rhum, I would like to know it BEFORE opening the bottle. Specially at this price.
Even if it is the best spiced rhum I tried.
great blent out of extra old barrels with a strong burn. super smooth, and a lot of fruit. especially cassis.
like oil and very long. If you taste different during the evening, this one should be the last one. great
