Smell of typical czech 4 Euro rum leads to taste of typical romanian 6 Euro cognac and finishes with typical russian hangover for free.

I know this is a bizarre review but I am now on bottle number 3 which have been consumed over the previous 18 months or so. I can't quite work out why I don't hate this rum but then also cannot throw it out of my collection. Sometimes it tastes so strong and the smell knocks my sideways then other times it hurts so good! I'm at war with myself over the Old Monk and love it someday and hate it somedays I guess he will be here to stay so is that a bad thing or a great thing? Sometimes too bitter and lacking sweetness then surprises me with a mouthfuls of mild caramel eschews and treacle with coffee kicks. Not a rum for the fainthearted this is a thinking man's rum, but then I am not a thinking man! Oh dear Old Monk please help?

I join with other comments. Hard to describe all the spices that rum is included. Worth trying. Me and my friend's favorite beverage !

When you think of rum, you probably don't associate it with India. However, India is the number one producer of sugarcane followed by Brazil. Old Monk is a fine example of rum hailing from India. Can be enjoyed neat or mixed. If you can find Old Monk XXX, I would strongly suggest trying it!

The smell already was weird, a mix of vanilla and citrus
Then the taste, overly sweet, like a Jagermister, will have more vanilla and coffee too.
I would actually not really call this a rum, more a cough sirop.

Very butterscotchy and sweet. Decent for shots and mixing. But not everyone’s cup of tea. So much sugar it can give a slight headache.

Compared to some the bigger name rums this does not stand up. Unique to have in your collection but I would not offer it to drink. Taste has a sweet vanilla finish, a smell that is hard to pin point and almost artificial. It was ok as a mixer but not straight

Аромат приятный, доминируют кофе, фрукты и что-то цветочное. Пьётся легко, хотя и крепость 42-43%. А вот вкуса почти нет, какие-то слабые нотки чего-то непонятного, как будто сладкое дерево и ваниль, но выражено неявно, в послевкусии.

Nice aroma with coffee, fruits and smth flowerish in it. A smooth sipper despite its 42-43%. Taste is a bit weak, hard to describe, tastes like sweet wood and vanilla, but not rich, only as aftertaste.

I really like the taste of this rum. Smells and tastes of sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla. A great taste, though it is slightly harsh.

Taste is more important to me than smoothness, so I give this a high 7.
