The price I can’t get on with, the taste I can’t get on with

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.

Very strong smell of vanilla and alcohol, and taste includes vanilla, caramel, spices and lots of sugar. Tastes more like spiced rum than any other type. However, it is still drinkable. Not one of my favorites but certainly worth a try if you like sweet and spicy rums. The value isn't that great, however.

Friend of mine bring me one from India as souvenier. I can't told him straight, how bad this rum is, but to be honest It's evil experience. It smells and tastes very cheap and ends with strange aftertaste. It's a pitty to throw him to bin, si maybe lot of coke will improve it. But still it's choice only for masochists.

Old Monk, very interesting aroma it is a very unsophisticated rum a bit too strong on the vanilla flavor, a rum should have a hint of flavor so that it evaporates on the tongue and subtly engages the palate, the flavors are very strong and tend not to create a balance but more to overpower.

Kolor - bardzo ciemny , wręcz czarny, wpadający w smołę
Nos - Bardzo aromatyczny, wyczuwalna wanilia, ciemne owoce, brązowy cukier
Smak - na początku słodycz, palony cukier, wyczuwalna mocno ciemna czekolada, ciężkie owoce, tytoń, dąb.

Zdecydowanie ciężki rum, czuć że leżakowany, ciemny, mocno wyczuwalne aromaty. Nie polubią go Ci co wolą lekkie, delikatne trunki. Kac po wypiciu kilku głębszych gwarantowany.

Moc 42,8 % - co ciekawe dobrze ukryta. Niestandardowe otwarcie, wysuwany korek z dozownikiem, nawet ładna butelka. Kupiony w polsce za 100PLN/1litr i tu uważam że jest to zbyt wysoka cena w stosunku do oferowanego trunku za co odejmuję 1 punkt.
