Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Nose with faint oak, not a surprise since this rum is aged and then filtered. Coconut, lime peel and some grass.
Rich coconut notes, citrus and lychee in the mouth. A flavourful product for a cheap rum. Surprisingly long aftertaste but slightly unpleasant burn and a dry finish. My seven rating is obviously taking price and mixability into account and the scale 1-10 is defined as the category “cheap, white blends for mixing”. This is not a particularly good sipping rum, but full of character and very nice in plain daiquiris and mojitos for those grown tired of white Bacardi et al.
Had a glass of Angostura 3y at La Bodequita del Medio in Ciudad de Mexico. Boring bottle and label design. Very offputting industrial strength cleaner product straight to your nose and palate. Its awful even when mixed. Its almost like Angostura does not even want to try with this rum. Just awful altogether.
N- Watery thin eau de vie...or we may addressed it pure and clean in better term. Looks rather oily in the glass despite low at strength. Supple apple with juicy oak comes thru after open up. (17/25)
P- Mushy fresh apple puree, clean, simple and well manner, pleasant and sip-able as it is not too sweet. Quite a bit of peppery spirit nuance at low strength tells that a rather heavy and aggressive spirit are being make in this distillery. (18/25)
F- Short. Pungent and blunt, faint trace of spiky oak from the 3 years aging process. Alternative to vodka. (17/25)
Balance- Remain "clean and pure" and anonymous. (17/25)
