Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I was truly surprised by this rum. I had it in Palm Springs at some resort (would be swanky resort, but caters to families...) and this rum was the only "rum not found in grocery stores in this bar" as described by the bartender...
Smells of cool vanilla and tastes of sweet, freshly cut grass (I know, sounds weird...)
This bottle definitely stands out among all the typical liquor bottles so it grabbed my attention. Only one store in the whole city carries it and when I was paying for it, the clerk who happened to be the owner of the store raved over it saying it was his favorite rum. That definitely got my attention. According to the label, my bottle was produced (I assumed that means bottled) October 19, 2006 (Lot # 0004c). I noted the vanilla immediately and it was good. Definitely other subtle flavors which I cannot identify but nothing objectionable. It worked well for me in Coke Zero but really worked well in Dr. Pepper believe it or not. Give that combo a try. Have not tried it in fruit-based mixers. I can see some people drinking this straight and on the rocks but I like it better mixed.
picked up some of this out of town it was very good rum very light tasting good with splash of diet coke I cant find it any more local
I had this rum many years ago. Nice and light, slightly sweet, and smooth finish. I haven't seen it for several years but I hope I can find a bottle.
Found this rum during a spring break trip in Oregon of all places. Sad to see it's no longer made. Great smooth taste, nothing harsh at the end. It's a white rum I drink neat.
A nice find while traveling. I am not a fan of Cachaça, so when I saw that this was from Brazil, I was a bit skeptical. It had a fruity nose, and was sweet on the tongue with a little heat in the back. Would be great in a fruity cocktail. If I find a bottle at a store, I'll definitely pick some up.
I thoroughly enjoyed this rum as the grassy, floral notes worked well together. A more pricy cachaca but often times, you get what you pay for.
Pick up a bottle if you can as it is rumored to be out of production!
I love the bottle style and design!
I don;t know what constitutes a flavored Rhum. This cane rhum, made in Brazil, has a distinct vanilla, matched by a clean, cane sweetness. It is very smooth, making me wonder what else is in there? So, for the purists, well, you may be taken aback by the vanilla top and bottom. I really enjoyed it. One of the most important qualities of any spirit is its drinkability. Second, is its adherence to tradition to its genre. Oronoco is as smooth as it gets, and has a cool, sweet pure cane gladness, with, as I've said, this real vanilla presence. Anyone who has purchased Mexican or south American vanilla, knows of its intense, clean and non-alcoholic properties, far different than vanilla bought for baking on the US. It seems this brand is no more. I can't find it anywhere.
A drinkable white rum, but nothing of particularly strong character. From a county that specializes in cachaca, this is a nice alternative. Too pricey to mix, but really not a sipper either. Perhaps a top-shelf daiquiri.
80 proof. Sip test, no ice
This is a sippable white, doesn't make me wince. Vanilla with light coconut afternotes. Slight empty glass nose.
Oronoco is a wonderful, light cane rum made with a unique aging process in Brasil. Unfortunately it was introduced into the U.S. with virtually no marketing and, though it had gathered small circles of intense affection, after a few years it was just pulled from the states by its distributor. There is truly nothing like it for a light taste that to me has a unique vanilla-and-coconut overtone (and I agree with statements about a slight "grassy" quality as well). Great on the rocks but also in some mixed drinks where its qualities are not overwhelmed. I still can't find anything to compare, though Angostura 1919 is my current replacement, as it is wonderful in its own but only slightly similar way. Please bring Oronoco back to the USA!
This is a light rum that is excellent on the rocks with a smooth cigar. Good job Oronoco. Only problem is it is difficult to find.
Very nice white rum! I like it on the rocks with a splash of coke better that any other white with coke. A real treat for those of us who enjoy the dark rums only this one goes fantastico with coke as do most white rums.. Cool bottle too!
Flavorful and very mild, smooth and a bit buttery. Delicate and is best suited for daiquiris, but there are much better rums out there for daiquiris though, rums that has character. This one is too delicate.
Like the bottle, I think this has a woodsy flavor. A little harsh neat but good as a mixer. Although, it is too expensive to be a good value...especially mixing.
Some acricole characteristics due to the cane juice component, and some molasses character. IMO not really worth the usual ~$35-40 price, but I have picked up a couple bottles on sale for $25 at which price it is a decent buy.
It's a decent enough rum. I picked it up because of the bottle. I was drinking it on the rocks with a splash of tonic and a squeeze of lime.
