Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
very interesting smell, in a good way, pear and Apple. The smell is soft and refined not harsh at all very smooth smell, almost smells citrusy as well. One of the most complex and smooth Rum's I've ever had, rivals that of El Dorado 21. However, unlike El Dorado 21, I get more fruit flavors like the Apple and Pear as mentioned before. El Dorado 21 tastes more like brown sugar and sweet where as this one is more smooth and complex overall I believe. As I drink more, it's amazing how smooth this is, I could drink a whole glass of this very easily. I love it! This may be the best rum I've ever had, certainly on par with El Dorado 21, but maybe even better. They are just completely different so it's hard to pick between the two. Using the RumHowler 100 point scale, it is easily 95+, probably 97+
The pricing is somewhat prohibitive, but if you have the opportunity to drink this rum, you are doing yourself a favor. This is the smoothest, honest, uncompromising rum Inhave ever had. It is not a part of my collection at home, but I'm considering make the investment. Simply put, fantastic! The taste lingers on the back end to be savored slowly.
If you're into rum this is a must try. I like it ice cold, out of the freezer. This is one of the most complex and enjoyable rums I've ever tried. The only bad news is it goes down too smooth and makes its drinker prone to a hang over...
Is something different... Very different. The chemical tastesensation I experienced earlier with the Pyrat XO is long gone. A natural kind of citrustaste appears and this is sooooo smooth and sooo sweet. Dark mahogeny in the glas, a smell that is from another world and the taste is beyond anything I might jot down in here, you MUST experience this :-)
This rum is soooo smooth.....I thought the pyrat xo was good but this tops it..….….I had this with a cohiba cigar. With pyrat ..rum...make sure you drink it cold.....The pyrat rum tastes real good when they are cold and straight...no need for ice......wow...is what I can say......Forget the price ….this rum is worth it......and make sure you give Buddha a shot too...… They have a small story in the islands...you give buddha a shot.....and he brings you good luck and happiness.....and smiles upon you....He is the travelling saint of Happiness..and good fortune. The bottle comes with a buddha medallion.
It's compared to the Pyrat XO the perfect balance of the orange flavour. It is very smooth and oily to sip and the age of up to 40 years makes this rum to a very long lasting joy.
It's quite an expensive price for a rum where you don't know exactly the percentage of rum that really has been aged for 40 years of this bottle. One would assume that with the growing demand of rum, the percentage of long aged rum will decrease and younger aged rums will take over.
Much like the Black Tot, the Cask 1623 is a very special treat, that requires you to face the high price before getting the experience of the drink. It is clearly a much better beverage than most, complex and multi-layered in flavour with an aroma that lingers for minutes.
I would not, however, necessarily buy this for myself.
It has great favor, smooth taste and amazing finish. If you can still find this rum it is recommended that you try it. It is one of my top Sipping Rums.
Amazing! I hear the haters hating but what is there to hate about something with such a long ever developing levels of flavor. Smell it! Mmmmmmhh. Taste it! Roll it around in your mouth and realize how many layer of flavor there are with no off-putting alcohol bite. Swallow it, again no burn, just a nice sweet warm sensation as the flavors continue to develop long after its left your mouth. I leave the cork out of an empty bottle and allow it to permeate my house with its yummy bakeshop aroma for days reminding me of just how yummy it is. The price? Yeah its about double what it should cost but I can't resist.
From the solid wood walnut case, to the hand blown bottle that contains this precious spirit, everything about this rum in wonderful.
While not your traditional rum flavor, maybe leaning more towards a fine cognac or liqueur. Pyrat Cask 1623 has a beautiful bronze syrupy color, with a remarkable candied orange and apricot scent, finishing with a smooth butterscotch flavor.
I love the Cask! I'm not a fan of the price but the drink itself is delicious, especially while smoking a Padron Annivesario 1926 #9
Just the smoothest sipping liquor, of any type, I have ever tasted. Alas T it’s price I am unable to afford it. I tried a shot at a thumb bar at the cost of $65/shot
This is (at the moment) the best rum I have tasted.
It has it all: rich flavors, long aftertaste and enough sugar to satisfy my sweet taste.
It is also the most expensive rum i have bought - and for the price I should not give it a 10 but an 8 maybe.
It has the same orange flavor as the Pyrat XO Rum. But is much richer, witch you should expect at 5 times the price.
overpriced? maby - excelent yes!
I received this as a gift from a vendor. I only will have a sip on occasion to make it last longer. (ok a few fingers) It's a tasty rum but wayyy over priced. I certainly would not buy this for myself.
This is a decisive Rum, love or Hate. It’s not really all about price. Many people are willing to spend much more on whiskeys than we see in the rum world. This “Rum” is far superior to Zacapa Centanario XO and probably should be for the price. If all you want is a mixing rum then skip this one. If you want a truly fantastic Rum based flavor experience then this is one for the cabinet. Strong Orange from the Grand Marnier casks, more than expected even but lots of additional flavor beneath it. Caramel, chocolate, fruit, sweet and delicious. I’d buy this every time over Johnny Walker Blue and I am a whiskey fan.
