Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The smell never got better no matter how long it sat straight astringent nose. The first few sips were decent but slightly harsh it was not until I was a quarter thru the bottle it started tasting less harsh. This goes down easy in the throat but a bit dry. I could not detect much flavor or sweetness in it to be honest the dryness masked the flavors for me a bit of water did not help. I mixed it with some coke and that seemed to help out in terms of flavor. I ended up drinking the better part of the bottle in a sitting. I rate this highly because it gave me no ill feelings or hangover at all. With this bottle I consumed 2 cigars, a Triple whopper with cheese, bacon, ketchup, mustard, mayo, A double cheese burger no pickles, French fries, and 3 bbq chicken strips. Then I passed out and awoke early the next morning feeling great. Because of the no hangover effects I upgraded this from 7 to an 8.
Great rum with great quality, some nice notes of stone fruits and finishing dry like a great rum should be. Highly recommended.
Good Rum for good price! A rum to drink every day.
Nice rum with sweet taste. I personally prefer a bit more strong rums but this one is a must to try..
lots of baking spices, it has sharper taste, bitterness of tea leaves, oakiness.
7 sharp, not more.
It is colored with caramel, which is a shame
Full of taste rum. Smells and taste like caramel, but a little bit sharp. Not smooth enough for me. I prefer Baracrdi 8.
Des notes grillées, un peu de cacao, un goût boisé relativement doux, du sucre roux, finale pas si longue, mais équilibrée, ronde et boisée.
Nice ball-shaped bottle, comes with a natural cork stopper and in some kind of faux leather sack. Quite dark color. Woody smell,a little harsh maybe.
Very sweet and surprisingly full bodied taste of toffee, together with chocolate or coffee flavours. Makes a lot fun to drink, though it is not so complex (no ripe fruits here, which you don't actually miss). Sweet aftertase. And it is really a bargain!!
Definitely on the rougher side. Good for the price but much rather pay the extra for Pussers 15, Zacapa XO, Plantation 20th or anything along those lines. Usually only drink spirits straight but will use the reminder as a tester for mixing
Nose: violet and vannilla, like Camus VSOP and Martell Cordon Bleu.
Taste: Caramel sweetness.
Hands down - one of the best rums out there. Very smooth, smokey/vanilla/caramel flavor with a rich aroma. I purchased 3 cases which are stored and will not be touched. This is because Venezuela could implode at any minute, taking with it this fine nectar of the gods. I'll continue buying/consuming a bottle at a time and leave the three cases alone. I spent over 500 bucks on them because the rum is THAT GOOD!!!
I bought this for several of my friends who don't love rum but they all enjoy it. Accessible rum with a good overal taste.
Smooth, nice to mix or on its own...., a must-have rum in your own bar...!
Very dark colour I presume from added caramel ? Typical honey sweet smell , bit of alcohol bite at the start but smoothes of quite quickly in the mouth. A nice finish and a very pleasant after taste. Hoping I ll enjoy more with each tasting. So 7.5 for the rum and 0.5 for the leather bag , nice touch.
Light and to much alcohol burn for my taste. Leather and tobacco followed by a short finish.
Smells and tastes like caramel. Very smooth, but nothing special or exciting
Good for sharing in a meeting, no everyone will love it but for sure no body will be disappointed. if you dont let it breath first, you will feel some alcohol for when you sip it.
un bon rhum à faire découvrir pour partager un bon moment entre amis.
lidt anonym i duften. God og let drikkelig med en gid eftersmag
I dont have more to say. I just dont like that after taste, which comes after you swallow this rum. It is like propolis or something. I wll not taste this anymore. :-)
a smooth alcoholic taste, followed by a banana and caramel aftertaste. Great sipper!
Great looking packaging with the leather pouch. It's a decent rum but for me it lacks body and depth of flavor. It's almost too smooth.
full boddied rum with smooth flavour for excellent price. Must have for all rum lovers, perfect for those who want explore different tastes at the beginning of their rum period..
I thought it was worse...instead is decent for the beginners. 6/10
Packaging promised some interesting taste experience, but I've got some weird disharmonic tones instead. I imagine this is how granpa with strong cologne tastes like.
