This rum was new for me, never tasted something so odd like this one.
The taste begins with a smooth taste almost water like! With other words, not much of a taste. After that the “rum” taste kicks in end gets all destroyed by the strong alcoholic in the end. Normally I really don’t care about the alcoholic taste but with this rum I think that it removes/minimize the rum taste all too fast to be a good rum. I will not buy this rum again even not for mixing drinks.
So if you're not a tender girl, that is afraid of strong alcohol spirit, give it a try. It's tasty, great on it's own, real pirate stuff.
Fruktig smak med inslag av fat, apelsin, aprikos, vanilj, farinsocker, arrak och örter. Serveras rumstempererad som avec eller används som drinkingrediens.
The brand new republique 3 year is a cuban rum. And that's about it. There's nothing really memorable, good or bad.
So, why six points? Because it's so normal and predictable. It works well in mixed drinks, because it's just rum. It's a great warmup for tasting other more aggressive rum, because it's just rum. It's also a good introduction to rum for the inexperienced, as it's, once again, just rum.
This is a rum BLT. This is a rum Toyota Corolla. This is a rum Starbucks espresso. This is a rum.
Rum tasting in the Finnish wilderness with my good old friend continued with The Brand New Republique Gran Añejo Rum. Cheap bottle and label design. Light golden color. Plenty of oak, mild vanilla and a massive amount of nasty unaged alcohol to the nose and palate when neat. Quite a kick at the end.
The bottle has a clean shape with a plastic cork. It's young so it hasn't got the smoothness of an older rum but it can be sipped. Makes a nice Cuba Libre.
