Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Made from premium Caribbean rum that has been matured for a second time in Bodegas Suau brandy barrels in Majorca.
Bottled at 40% abv. Ron Jungla has an aroma of dried grape, plum, toasted cocoa, and distilled cane sugar molasses, with a “balance of acidity and sweetness” on the palate.
Similiar profile witht Plantation XO but it is not that balanced and smooth. In mouth flavours of vanilla, caramel and wood. You can also really feel that ageing in brandy casks.
Sugar: Estimated at 14 GPL. Decent Dominican rum with the usual caramel, vanilla, and light wood notes. Similar to the Plantation XO (aged in Cognac casks) I detected a bit of coconut or cocoa. This rum has been aged in Brandy casks and the brandy is certainly present in the aroma as well as the taste. I found the aroma a bit sharp at first but then it mellowed out. This has a long smooth burn which I attribute to the aging in Brandy casks. I am not a Brandy drinker and any Brandy that I have in the house is for cooking with, or in mixed drinks requiring Brandy. If you are a Bourbon drinker, you might enjoy this rum. This rum is a bit harsh but fairly smooth. For now it's a mixer or for my whisky drinking friends. Just too much alcohol on the nose.
Im aroma is a bit sharp alcohol - need breath. First taste is smooth fruiter then turning in to more dry and woody aftertaste.
