Barely drinkable, gasoline-like
I received a 30ml miniature of this in a rum advent calendar.
Maybe it’s just me but I didn’t find this one particularly enjoyable. I certainly couldn’t drink it neat so tried adding cola to it which made it worse giving it a smell and aftertaste of tobacco smoke.
Definitely a unique tasting and smelling rum, so try it if you want something different, but maybe hold off buying a full bottle before you’ve tried it first. Maybe I should have tried it with a different mixer but I couldn’t find anywhere with a recommended mixer.
i'm not sure if I am right for this rum, as opposed to the other way around. it's a pot still rum from olive oil and madiera wine country in portugal. (i know right?). if you told me this were alcoholized olive oil i would absolutely believe you. the nose is all port wine and port wine barrel. the taste starts with bitter medicinal vegetal tongue numbing green, following immediately by fresh uncured bitter olives. the after taste lingers (i'm at like 30 minutes now) and is just olives. green olives. the website only lists an unaged bottle, but this was shown as a 3 year old and had a decent coloring to match. it looked a bit... oily perhaps? like a little more viscous than the average rum. i didn't finish it. maybe you'd love it. i didn't.
edit. i had a chance to try again. i liked it even less. changed to a 2. this stuff is garbage. sorry, dont like green olives in my rum
I struggled to finish one glass. Weird cherry flavor on the background, does not even have that grassy flavor like agricoles have, it is rather pure horse manure, and very harsh.
At first, straight, the aroma reminds me of pure gasoline, and the taste brought back memories of syphoning fuel. Adding cola brings out strong burnt tobacco, aniseed and liqourice flavours. It also takes on a slight amonia aroma. Not one for me.
Enjoyed 1 glass of That Boutique-y Rum Company O Reizinho Madeira rum while in London. Nice bottle and label design. Very strong and clear floral notes and traditional Rhum Agricole flavors straight to your nose and palate. Moderate burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 3 points to the score.
