Taste of leather, smoke, full body, smooth aftertaste.

Well... nothing special. Aroma is good with flavours of vanilla, nuts and plum. But in mouth is not that good. Rum lack of complexity and has almost no body.. it is smooth but It is all.. weak flavours of vanilla, wood and coffee and very strange finish wchich taste like tequila.

Veľmi tmavý rum vo fľaši, skoro až do čierna, po naliatí do pohára pôsobí trochu svetlejšie, ale snáď ani 50 ročný rum nedosiahne takúto farbu...určite ho majstri v Mexiku ničím neprifarbili...=)...vôňa rumu je príjemná nasladlá, náznak vanilky, oriešky, sušené slivky. Chuť podľa môjho názoru výrazne zaostáva za arómou. Niečo mi tam nezapadá na záver a v dochuti. Asi je na mná príliš horký alebo trpký. Výrazné drevité tóny, káva a mandľova horkosť. Niečo podobné ako mladší 12 ročný El Ron Prohibido, aj keď o triedu lepšie. U mňa je toto kategória mixer.

Tengo que reconocer que me ha suavidad con que entra el sabor que daba y el golpe de los 40 grados, cómo dice la etiqueta los barriles de cómo dulce se notan , seguro que compraré el de doce y la verdad por 19'95€ pues hay que disfrutar antes que el desastre nacional me alcance

Not my cup of tea. Sweet with notes that looks like stroh rum.

Having tried several rums from Mexico over the years, I can almost certainly proclaim, that they are not to my taste. I have tried the 12-year from this brand and did not care for it, so I had little hope for its big brother

Nose: Raisins, prunes, brown sugar, caramel and vanilla
Taste: Raisins, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and honey with a very sweet and sticky aftertaste
Overall: This is once again a below average rum from Mexico. It is slightly better than its younger brother, but it is way to one-dimensional and sweet for me. Mexico should really stick to making tequila.

What is this? A rum? Really?
Nose of full sweetness, but then: coffee? Salty toffee, light spicy bitterness. Ripe fruits. Thrilling combination.
Palate: vanilla, coffee, light leather, oak and sweetness.
Long finish with pepper, spices, coffee and fruity vanilla.
Very interesting rum, never had one like this before.

Große Erwartungen wurden enttäuscht. Im Cuba Libre sehr mild und wer es wenig spannend mag...okay. Pur getrunken wich mild einem hölzernen fast muffigen Geschmack.

Doux et agréable à boire, il est sur les arômes de café et caramel.

Found it tough to figure out the taste as it is quite neutral, rather on the sweet side of rums.

В аромате - карамель и лёгкие нотки ванили и чего-то фруктово-травянистого (гвоздика?), спиртуозность низкая. Во вкусе доминирует как будто сливочная карамель, спиртовое жжение присутствует, но быстро сходит на нет, уступая место послевкусию - опять же карамели с травами. Сочетание сладости жжёного сахара с пряными травами и небольшой спиртуозностью даёт интересный эффект - ром сладкий, но не приторный, мягкий, но с характером - каким настоящий ром, в моём понимании, и должен быть.

Aroma: caramel as the main element, some notes of vanilla and smth fruitty and herby (carnation?), spirit harshness is low. Taste is dominated by butterscotch-like caramel, spirit is present as well, but it disappears quickly and yields to the aftertaste - again caramel with herbs. This combination of burnt sugar with herbs and some spirit harshness gives an interesting effect - the rum is sweet, but not too sugary, smooth, but has a strong character - for me thats what a real rum should be.
