Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I can barely taste the vanilla escue flavors. This to me is a lower tier rum. its very smooth in the initial phase and has a ok scent. however thats about it. its a solid nah from me :-)
Smell lovely - vanilla and almost pineapple. Tested interesting, but also a bit watery and bitter. Has that industrial rum taste, so not quite The sipping rum.. but not bad either.
I’d suggest that this rum is better than the English Harbour 5 year old, because it was a little less in love with enticing casual users with easy tastes (vanilla and maybe sugar, in that case). Gold in colour, bottled at 40%, it started the nose off with floral scents, quite deep, and honey-like aromas. There were some sharp and spicy notes, vanilla and ripe plums, perhaps a ripe peach or two, and a sly rubber note underlying it all, like an opened box of rubber bands. I quite liked it.
On the palate, nothing bad, nothing special, and, in fact, quite enjoyable: a little thin to start, a little sharp, very light and clean (almost like some agricoles, but without the grassiness) – it was actually quite crisp. The flavours came out in genteel profusion: honey, cherries, peaches, the vaguest sense of brine and olives, some nuttiness and more florals…and as it developed it went all soft and cuddly and in spite of its youth, I felt it was teetering right on the edge of being sipping quality without quite being there. This same warmth and softness of a feather bed followed into the close, which was quite short and departed with all the speed of an impersonal goodbye kiss, presenting last hints of pecans and vanilla.
I’m picking up a bit of oak and caramel on the nose, dont really get the fruitynees others mention, but could be due to the fact that I had a few other rums prior to trying this one, wich tend to dull the senses. The taste is slightly spicy with tingles reminding me of chili oil sublemented by light notes of cane sugar. It’s not very tanninc and a bit short on the finish, but finely balanced none the less. Nothing really sticks out or really peaks my interest, but it’s not a bad rum.
Rum má svetlo zlatú farbu, s veľmi jemnou ovocnou vôňou. U mňa dominujú banány a sladká vanilka. Chuť rumu je relatívne suchá, vraj nie je dosladzovaný cukrom, čo sa zdá byť pravdivé. Tiež je poznať, že rum zrel v dubových sudoch po burbone, chuť tomu nasvedčuje. Nie som moc zástanca dozrievania rumov v sudoch po borbone alebo whisky, ale na to, že je to zmes len 2 ročných rumov, celkovo by som ohodnotil tento run skôr pozitívne ako negatívne. Dal by som 65 bodov zo 100.
