I opened the lid and was instantly intrigued. This rum has a GREAT nose. Then I looked at the label closely. “Old Monk”. Distilled in India?? I immediately smelled the English along with the great dark rum nose. Looked it up. Sure enough a Scotsman during the British Empire years in India opened a brewery. It was turned into a rum distillery by the locals. Well, they did a pretty nice job. The taste doesn’t quite live up to the fabulous nose but it is Very good. Lots of vanilla and cloves. Smooth It has some body. It has some bite. It is a real mouthful. Not too sweet. Medium long finish. Better neat than on ice. Good price too!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is probably one of the top 5 rums in its price category. Strong presence of a vanilla flavour may put off some more refined rum drinkers but this is a great one for mixing drinks.
