Now this is some good stuff
It seems like Colombians have a strange habit to turn their rum into whiskey. First La Hechicera, now Coloma 15yo. I ordered a rum, I got a whiskey. And what a wonderful whiskey it is. Developed by Sandra Reategui and Judith Ramirez it is actually a high end whiskey which will make every fan of dry rums happy. It is not matured by solera method, so its a pure 15 years of aging.
Bottle: It has a square bottle packaged in hard paper square box with magnetic closing.
Nose: Very long and intense duration of smell. You can smell some coffe, vanilla and a lot of oak. You can smell wood from it and very nice one.
Taste: Incredibly smooth. Almost no burn, complexity, nice body and long ending. You can taste a lot of wood in it, also coffe and a bit of chocolate. Its very dry, almost no sweetness.
Summary: I would definitely recommend this to every lover of dry rums and whiskey. Because it is a wonderful whiskey.
As you may have worked out from the name, Coloma is a rum that comes from Colombia. The molasses used as its base was made from two varieties of sugarcane, and the resulting spirit was matured initially in ex-bourbon oak casks before being finished for 3 to 5 months in ex-coffee liquor oak casks. It was diluted with spring water from the volcanoes of the Colombian Cordillera, then filtered and bottled at 40% ABV
Nez fin fruité aux arômes de vanille, de café et de chocolat amer.
Bouche riche sur le moka, le café fraîchement torréfié avec de belles touches boisées.
La finale est longue, onctueuse et persistante sur la vanille et le café.
Elaborated by two women, this Coloma 15yo is one of my favorite. It's not a solera.
Nose : coffee, vanilla, chocolate
Mouth: coffee, not no sweet
This is not so sweet one. It is not flashy, but is mature.
I think this style is similar to R,L,Seals.
Flavor and taste is complex. It has oak, vanilla and a little coffee flavor.
Purchased two bottles of Coloma 15 yr rum a while back, along with a bottle of the 8 yr. version. The 8 yr rum was quite a disappointment as I found it much too sweet. Finally opened up a bottle of Coloma 15 yr rum and the two are a world apart. The older version is definitely a drier rum even though a natural sweetness (similar to MGXO) is present and mixes well with a slight coffee flavour.
