Recommendable to most
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.
Some green aromas in the nose with wood char, oak and vanilla. Quite fun to nose and smell, but still not a sipper for me. Tobacco and Toffee flavors yet overall "high-toned" in the finish then some alcohol kicks in, so not the smoothest on my pallet. Great as one of the 2 or 3 rums to use in Mai Tai or other Tikki drink.
Great nose that translates on the tongue. Lots of different tastes but not as much sweet as many rums as a sipper. A wonderful mixer that should take a great spot on your bar shelf.
pur mag ich ihn nicht. aber für den preis gibts eigentlich nichts zu meckern. positiv ist die verpackung:)
werde ihn nicht mehr kaufen zum mixen zu teuer und pur nicht mein geschmack.
I am in general in favor of rum from Venezuela. this small bulb bottle is already the third bottle of the same in my cabinet. light but nice taste, not too much of an after taste, I like it.
This rum is probably most known for its packaging, so I did not have the highest of hopes for the content within the bottle, but it actually turned out to be better than feared.
Nose: Caramel and coffee with a slightly nutty background
Taste: Molasses, cinnamon and a slight hint of tobacco in the back of the mouth
Overall: This will not change your view of what a great rum is, but it is a pleasant and non-complex rum, ideal for a night in with friends or for mixing in a Cuba Libre.
