Tasty, but not quite great
Good Price $$$
1st introduced on Disney Wonder cruise out of NoLo “French Quarter Bar” immediate fan. Got home in SC and found at Frugal McDouglas. #2 so far on my list behind the Brugal 1888. Great mix with Coke 0 double shot extra ice wine goblet. How I do my rum.
It tastes unbearably forgettable and artificially sweet. I don’t even remember the tasting notes. This is one of my first sipping rum, I remember when I first opened the bottle as a mewbie I enjoyed rums like this and bumbu. I forgot about it and started trying out new rums, and when I sampled this again a month later, I poured it out.
Initially a bit strong and the first sip was harsh and heavy with etoh flavor.p As I let it breath it changed quite a bit. The vanilla is pretty forward. Not as complex as I was expecting. Many other reviews felt it was too sweet but for me it definitely wasn't.
On the nose, VERY vanilla.
Tastes very carmel, toffee, butterscotch - ending with vanilla and a STRONG bitter flavor.
Very long finish.
Definitely not anything like the "whisky-like" dry rums most of us prefer (Pusser's, Appleton, Plantation).
It is a blended rum, but it does have the brown sugar flavor of very old (XO) brandy, so it seems that there's a decent amount of 16ish-year-old rum in the recipe.
Decent if you're using it as a dessert rum, or for people who don't normally drink rum neat.
(There was never any sticky residue in any of my glasses, so they don't seem to be adding much sugar.)
Final verdict: it's not one I would get again, and it's too pricey to buy solely as a mixer.
Heavy vanilla nose. Soft mouth, smooth. But, there is something funky that has a chemical quality on the back end that I just don’t like. Charred plastic maybe?
Imaginary liquor, still classic rum;
The best on nose;
Sweetness the must to be;
Where it's from? From Trinidad or from Tobago?
Why it's limited to .75l!?!
Ok, бе reasonable - minus one point just to be reasonable
