Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This one's a slashy, part rhum agricole and part demerara in flavors. And then there's that mezcal bark upfront. Honestly, it tastes like an identity crisis, but it is truly interesting and a solid introduction to charanda-style cane spirits. It has a lil sumthin for everyone into rum, but it will not floor you like Paranubes will. It's a little sweet, kinda reminding me of pulque, which seems natural given the agricultural proclivities of the region...
Like, not love, and will probably mix with it from now on. Cool bottle tho!
Enjoyed a glass of Uruapan Mexican rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design look very nice and artsy. Super dry Rhum Agricole notes straight to your nose and palate. Very strong and dry burn at the end. For Rhum Agricole lovers, add 2 points. This is a very unique rum hailing from Mexico, well done.
46% ABV. Bottle 2155/16300 (wow, that's dedication to hand-numbering!). Big nose. Creamed corn, brine, touch of cane. An herbal note. Later, that industrial plastic/diaper note I really don't care for surfaces briefly. Just a hint, though. Shortly thereafter this shifts into more of a Gak/putty aroma (unmistakably), and that sticks around for the long haul. Cane sugar on the palate. Frosted Flakes? (But not that sweet.) Rather briny finish that mellows after a while.
A very good, agricole-esque rum. I look forward to seeing charanda (which is a DO like Martinique agricole and Brazilian cachaça, and not even considered as "rum" to the producers in Michoacán, Mexico) continue to grow (sustainably) and expand into new markets. Based on this one bottling, it's really great stuff. I'm looking forward to trying it in a Daiquiri or Ti' Punch (shhh!) as soon as I can get my hands on a bottle...
