Sugar: estimated at 10 GPL. This rum just appeared in the government liquor stores here in Ontario. I sampled 2 other rums from Mauritius last evening with 2 more to try later this week, so I couldn't resist picking up a bottle of this rum from the LCBO. I did some research into this one as it had an interesting taste. I was expecting an Agricole rum as that's the only type that Mauritius produces (so I am told). This rum is actually casked and blended in France. The casks used are Cognac casks and because of that I compared this rum to my favourite rum of this type (Plantation XO 20th). I found this rum to be a bit sweeter than expected. It has Agricole rum and Molasses based rums in the blend. There is a trait of the Agricole taste profile in the background. I describe it as a funky vegetal swamp water, which explains the rating of 6. To me it tastes more like a Spiced rum. There is a lot of oak and spice in the taste and in the background and some fruit, perhaps coconut or pineapple. Sweet on the entry and then it finishes with a bite of harshness and then it fades to a nice warm glow. I will keep it for those that can't decide between a spiced rum or an amber rum for mixing. No need for a second bottle.
Nice shaped dark bottle. Light on the nose and then a lot of alcohol when resting in the glass. Initial taste was a bit strong of spice and alcohol but was not hard to sip after. Average cask flavour, not sweet or funky, just a nice average rum flavour. This bottle is $52 in Ontario and my first Mauritius rum, looking forward to try more.
Nice nose, slight alcohol notes with light spice. Smooth, but just too sweet. Light vanilla & honey notes...just can’t get past the sugar.
An easy rum, not very deep ... Gentle nose, light taste. In between Spanish and Jamaican. An all-rounder that you can have in an informal party but not with connoisseurs. Worth a try.
Nice colour as Amber is.
Nose is quite strong and harshe but taste is phenomenal. Bit like dictador. Karamel, buttery, oaky, not to sweet. Lasts long time.
I generally prefer Cuban and Dominican Rums(CDR) which I would describe as oaky, with subtle differences that make up the "final taste". They are never overly sweet and are thin in the palette. It's the mix of subtle flavors that determine whether or not you like a particular CDR offering.
This rum is much darker, with a stronger spicy taste, but not as strong as a "spiced rum"....its not thin, but not syrup.
Its very unusual, not like a Cuban, Jamaican, etc. but its very nice.
