Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
this room has a mixture of earthy tones along with light molasses almost brown sugar aroma. Excellent on the rocks. Very difficult to come by by where I live. I didn't even know they made rum in India. ITtbis certainly not the best mom I've had, but definitely far from the worst.
I would actually give it 6 1/2 bottles, but I can only score in even numbers.
One of the most tastiest best Rum, no after effects and healthy, I have tasted hundreds of drinks, my best one is this most affordable and Smooth Original Tasty RUM. I challenge anyone to say no, he must be a racist or ignorant about Rum....If you go to India Please get as many as possible when you return...OLD MONK SUPREME RUM.
A silly bottle, but it caught my eye - that's what it is for, I suppose. The rum is very decent, lots of oak, little sugar - the way I like it. It burns a bit after swallowing, though. I like it anyway.
By no means unpleasant, but the bottle is the best thing about this rum. It doesn't have much spice to tempt you to try it again.
First of all...the bottle is fantastic and you can't see in this but the face is typically painted. The thing i like most about this rum is all the flavors and spice notes that come through in smell and taste. They are there in the lower xxx version but the supreme loses some of the bite and is much smoother and easy to drink. You can lose the mixer and sip straight or on ice and enjoy immensely
Proper fuel with the aroma of candy and coffee. Dry and strong - not for pure sipping. It have harmonical aftertaste because it smoothed by a 12-year aging. It could be even better if there was no flavor added aromatic essence.........................................Оригинальная и удобная бутылка. Ром пахнет конфетами и кофейным ликёром, спирт хорошо спрятан. Во вкусе также кофе, сладость, терпкость. Но поскольку сахара в нём нет, то тут же обжигает (42,8%), в чистом виде пить его не годится. Послевкусие гладкое - с пользой ром провёл последние 12 лет. И если б не возникающее позднее ощущение добавленной ароматической эссенции, то уверенно поставил бы ему 8 баллов.
What a disappointment and what a hard bottle to find here in the US. Smell is offputting but quite mild, color is nice dark but hardly any legs so indication that very little sugar in it, but the taste test was a shocker. The Old Monk Supreme tastes like a damp wet cellar, very offputting to my taste buds. Maybe the barrel was all moldy, who knows, but struggles to score even a 4.
This rum has an incredible sweet aroma (if you like that), a lot of vanilla or brown sugar scent. When drinking it neet it is pretty good without any heavy alcohol burn. Did a flight of this with El Dorado 12 and Kraken. Old Monk came second behind the El Dorado. So much sampling to do.
i smell dark chocolate and ester. some notes of espresso.
i taste smoke, dark chocolate, molasses, some burn, spicy notes. in the aftertaste its burning a little bit, peppery with notes of espresso. chocolate, some dry fruit tones at the end.
7/10. some kind of rum with a very special taste. torn back and forth in betweeen dark chocolate, coffee and plastic.
not for the lovers of sweet rum.
The bottle is what made me try it at first. The smell is of "caramel brûlé". The taste is caramel with a nice sting at the end. I was hoping the bottle was not just a nice face. I was not disappointed.
I love the original design of the bottle showing a monk great detail.
As far as taste goes its a more refined version of the Old monk XXX. the vanilla and molassess are stronger. getting a bit more oak. one i had was sitting on shelfs for at least 2 years since the one i got was bottled in 2013. was a pain finding the bottle in my state but managed to get my hands on one. and for only 10$ more than the XXX. id gladly pay for just the bottle design itself!.
also its alot more smoother than the XXX dont even need ice to sip on it. no burn at all.
if you like the XXX and want a more flavorful experiance. go with this stuff.
