Good desert rhum, taste of chocolate but not too sweet

Posted 27 days ago by Bill from United Kingdom with 72 ratings

Couldn't believe the light amber colour considering it comes in a black bottle, at 54% alcohol and smells of dark chocolate. Amazing stuff but so very unusual. I'm completely confused how to mark it. Swaying to a 9 but it's so un-rum I can't! Anyway, whatever the hell this is it's strong and very tasty.

In the nose you get a very dark, very nutty flavour, scents of Hazelnuts for example.
This also continues in the mouth, paired one or two other tastes that disappear quickly.

To me the whole rum is like a dark premium Nutella. And not really more. It is not bad, but i think you really must love this taste to love this one. Plus side is, that the 54% are barely noticable. But in the end it misses a broader taste profile, a broader character. 1423 has far better Panama Rums in their S.B.S collection.

Used it in Chili con Carne once, came pretty good.

Strong almost overpowering taste of dark chocolate, great for mixing with coke.

Wow, this rum kills it when it comes to chocolatey taste. Surprisingly bright color for that amount of dark chocolate flavor that pours out of the glas. Amazing nose and palate and the creamy aftertaste lasts for minutes. The alcohol is perceptible but one wouldn't expect that the Companero Panama Extra Añejo comes with 54 % vol. - it's still sweet and smooth and just well-balanced. Absolute recommendable if you are into sweet rum and looking for something special.

Amber colour with a strong chocolate nose. Light sweetness, cocoa and a bit of orange zest on the palate. A bit spicey and surprisingly smooth for the higher abv. Long dark chocolate finish. $67 at LCBO

Aroma: Chocolate, cacao, hints of citrus

Body: Chocolate, cacao, hints of orange

Finish: Chocolate, cacao

Conclusion: You won't notice its high alcohol strength at all. Chocolate and cacao dominate everything else. It isn't a complex, but a very tasty rum. You should try it.

Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this with me as part of a rare rum exchange (you can't get this in the US).

This is very chocolatey, much like the Deadhead Chocolate, and the Selvarey Cacao. But I found those too weak, as I noted in both of my reviews of those. This is at a great abv of 54%, and I REALLY like it that way!

Smells and tastes of chocolate. Not too much else going on, but it's good!

A bit to sweet, but a real candy rum !

Schokoexplosion im Mund gefällig. Hier ist sie, viel Spaß.

This strong cocoa aroma should came from the toasted casks. It's so intensive.
I could imagine that it is artificial. But I don't know.
It could be a much better rum, it needs more balance between the aromas.

Smell: Cocoa, cocoa, cocoa, cinemon, some spices (like pepper, unfortunately overlaid by cocoa)
Taste: Chocolate/cocoa, liquorice, cinemon, sweetness with bitterness (dark chocolate), spices (cardamom)

Sweetness: 3.5/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruits: 1/5
Mildness: 3/5

Style: Column
Alcohol: 54%
AGE: 12 years
Produced by: 1423

54% v čokoládě, jemné, sladké a silné. Dost mi připomíná Autentico Nativo Overproof, paráda 👍

I had many trips to Cuba and always enjoyed Havana Club 7 yo. Up until now I did not try anything else except Cuban rum. Once I've brought from there Santiago de Cuba 11yo and have found it so smooth and delicius compared to HC. Since then I've discovered world is full of different rums ). Had tried 12 of them so far. And I will rate them comparing to HC as the base rated 6.

Ganz klar vom Schokolade Geschmack dominiert, leichte Süsse und etwas Frucht am Gaumen.
Ganz klar ein Spezieller Fall, aber sehr stimmig fein.

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!

Posted 8 months ago by Daan from Netherlands with 56 ratings

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 those that like rum drinks with chocolate. It's not a sipping rum.

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

Posted 9 months ago by Schnatterer from Switzerland with 20 ratings

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 ..
