Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I have tried all(?) 3 of the rums from Companero and after the two prior to this failed in almost all categories, this one surprised me greatly. And in a good way.
Nose: Chocolate, orange peel and oak
Taste: Very heavy dose of chocolate with hints of orange, tobacco and raw cocoa
Overall: This is a chocolate-heavy rum, no doubt about it. It also has it limits in complexity, but with the 54 abv it delivers something, that the other two in the series doesn´t.
I have just discovered my official new favourite rum, as soon as you break the seal the smell of dark chocolate radiates around your nose and the taste does not disappoint, sweet with a kick, lovely
Harsh but this little bottle has a party trick; if you inhale after a shot it’s as thought you’ve just eaten dark chocolate!
It was a surprise. Nice notes of oak and vanilla. Bit sweet but because of strength, acceptable. Taste lasts long time
Sugar: Estimated at 34 GPL. At 54% and a high sugar content this is more in line with a Liqueur than a rum. The high alcohol content hits you right in the nose followed by some wood and then brace yourself because all you can smell past that is chocolate. It's quite smooth at 54% but if you let it breathe a bit it mellows out and then the room fills with the smell of chocolate. At first I didn't really care for it but I kept coming back for more, mainly because I like sweet rums and chocolate. It will grow on you and my guests thought it would be great in hot chocolate or on ice. Overall I liked it but I think the one bottle will do me for quite some time. I think it's worth having in the collection for chocolate lovers.
Choklad i doft och massiv choklad i smak, strak och balanserad sötma. En väldigt speciell och stark rom som är mycket intressant och udda.
dark chocolate more need not be said about this rum
I love dark chocolate and this rum has much of it in its taste. Simply fantastic
This is a 54% rum so should have a decent punch of flavour . It certainly does and I was drinking this with a newbie who could clearly describe the flavours to me . What a stunner this is but due to not have a knockout slap in you face rum proof ..
Epic, tasty, spicy, amazing, juicy, flavorful and most importantly very well priced. Definitely a strong 10.
This is very nice! To the nose a Marabou milkchocolate bar(swedish candy)! Yummy! Tastes of caramel, nuts, vanilla an alot of chocolate. Its 54% alcohol balanses the sweetness very nice without taking over. If it where to be a 40% it would be to sweet and more like a liqueur but this i very nicely balanced. One of my new favorites
Well-aged rum from Panama, independently bottled by Danish bottler 1423 for its Compañero range. Ought to be great for sipping as a postprandial tipple...Tobacco, milk chocolate, orange peel, a touch of earthy tomato stem.
Foarte interesant, o aromă puternică de ciocolată neagră, pe gheață nu se simte deloc alcoolul. Îl prefer on the rocks :)
Wow , from the moment you open the bottle the room gets filled with the smell of chocolate. A 12 year old rum bottled at an impressive 52%.
Smells wonderful with a bit of citrus and vanilla in with the mountain of chocolate..
Sips brilliantly with a good warm burn in the mouth but not in the throat. Also nice with ice , plus mixed with lemonade tastes like chocolate mousse !!
That all being said , would I buy another bottle ? Im undecided..
A bit like plantation stiggins fancy , one bottle might be enough..
then: much of alcohol
finally: great compose, very original but it's one moment with much of alcohol in taste...too much. But when is 54 % It's understable.
I was thinking about mark 7 or 8. I tried with coke...very bad. So finaly mark 7.
20ml uit een advent kalender. Karamel, cacao. Gebotteld op 54%abv. Niets mis mee.
Amazing, simply amazing rum. Thank You so much the geniuses from Vinoble at Skanderborg for recommending such an amazing rum. Very nice and sturdy box surrounding a great looking bottle and nice label. Yellow golden color. Stunning chocolate flavors to both nose and palate. No burn at all. Jumps directly to my Top 5 rum list from well over 800 rums later.

If you enjoy a sweet rum with a nice touch of alcohol burn, this is the right choice. A nice scent and taste of chocolate. Great rum!
Eine Schokoexplosion im Mund
Noch nie so etwas getrunken!!
After rather neutral nose, rum is off-sweet, quite harsh on palate; interesting scent of chocolate
This is something positive different, but doesn't really feel like a rum. I'd like to rate it 7.5, cuz a 7 feels too cheap but a 8 too high, still I round up.
(Release in January 2018)
Nose: pleasant chocolate and maybe some coconut
Palate: also chocolate, but combined with an unneccessary sharpness. Could be smoother.
Special smell, never smelled chocolate like that before.
My rum kalender no 23
There really is srong infulence of chocolate in nose and even in the taste. In the mouth rum brings lot of warmth thanks to its strenght.
This should be excellent mixer for few types of cocktails, but i cant see it as a sipper for whole night.
Anyway interresting experience
