Now this is some good stuff
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.
This rum also attracted me for a long time, especially I liked the beautiful decorated bottle.
Rum is delivered in a really nice square bottle with a wooden cap made of real cork. They did it well from the marketing point of view, but what is rum itself?
Aroma: Delicate, although slightly burns in the nose. Dried fruits, dark chocolate, vanilla. Coffee should be smelled there too (rum was aged in small barrels where a coffee liqueur had been stored), but I didn't notice it there.
Taste: Vanilla and woodiness of the barrel. The taste of the coffee can be smelled a bit, but not intensely. At first, the taste is a little harsher, but this pungency quickly fades. Bourbon barrels, on the other hand, taste quite intensively.
Conclusion: It's a pretty good rum, but I wasn't very interested in it. For this reason, I am not attracted to their 8-year-old version.
Overall rating: 7 points from 10
The smell is there, the profile is excellent but the taste itself is missing something. Tasting this after the Kirk and Sweeney 18 makes it taste bland. For the price you can get something better. I would put this in the same league as the Dos Maderas PX5+5, which is quite a bit cheaper.
V týdnu jsem na něj narazil na netu. Přečetl si jeho charakteristiku a v sobotu se náhodou dostal k jeho degustaci. Je podobný tak trochu La Hechiceira, jen více sladký a vonící po kávě. Tu vůni a chuť jsem po přečtení recenze čekal více intenzivní. Navíc mne malinko překvapila závěrečná ,,ostrost" na jazyku. Moje hodnocení je tedy, že jde o výborný rum, ale čekal jsem něco malinko jiného.
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.
Coloma est un rhum élevé en altitude et fini en fût de liqueur de café.
Un produit très agréable à déguster.
Ce vieillissement plus tardif lui apporte plus de corps et de prestance.
