Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Lots of fruit on the nose, warm through the middle, with hints of oak
The smell does not convince, but the mild taste does.
As a sipper after a long day of work totally fine, just lacks a bit the depthness.
5.75 to a 6.25
Sweeter vanilla caramel smoky oaky gentle nose. Sweeter start to medium rich vanilla caramel smoky oaky body. A bit abvish body and end. A bit sharp and less gentle
Nose: some smooth alcohol is the first thing you smell. Then some sweetness and maybe some oak. The sweetness stays for a while. Overall not a lot going on here and even smells a little watery. Does get a little more interesting after letting it sit for a while.
Taste: first thing you get is butterscotch but as it gets further into your mouth it turns into oak while the sweetness coats your tongue. No burn at all. Not very complex though.
Finish: oakiness fades away slowly and turns into a slight, very pleasant burn. Does feel a bit watery but not really in a disturbing manner.
Final: overall, this rum would probably not be very good as a mixer since it would not really stand up to more powerful ingredients. It does serve its purpose as a sipper because it's really smooth and has nothing offensive about it; which might also be a bad thing for you. I would recommend this to people who are new to rum and want an easy entry .
Notes: added 3 drops of water. Also, I'm an inexpercienced taster so the details might be inaccurate, but it's still really enjoyable for my still-developing palate.
The nose is smooth with just a slight burn. Slightly nutty with some fruit but not the depth for a sipper. Mixed well with Coke but again not the depth to standout with a citrus soda. Enjoyed but will not stock.
