Recommendable to most
Nothing stand out about this rum, it is nice but does not stand out.
Nose is one dimensional with a touch of bite. On the tongue this is drier without the super sweetness of some rooms which would be nice as a sipper but again, very limited palate with nothing to recommend it as a sipper.
Mixing it was nice but again nothing special. For the price of this rum you would expect more. Liked it but will not carry it forward as several less expensive rums mix better and I do not see this as a sipper or blending.
Durchschnittlicher Rum, der überhaupt nicht sprittig ist und wenig brennt. Geschmacklich solides Mittelfeld mit dunklen Noten, gewisser Würze und einer angenehmen Süße.
At €55 a bottle there are better options out there. Lacks character, this is neither a sweet rum nor a particularly dry one. Nothing complex or interesting on the palate or nose. A glass of mediocrity hence the 5
I preferred the cheaper, artificial banana laced predecessor. I think there are rums in this price range that are far superior. I wouldn't buy it again.
Surprise by the really special taste. Stronger than expected. It's like tobacco or coffee, the oak flavour makes it interesting.
Tastes way more harsh than the smell.
Ok, but not mine too be honest.
I know most arn't a fan, but I thought that very distinct banana/vanilla flavor to the original really made it stand out. The higher proof they tried in this just made it feel like they threw it in half hazard. The original enjoyment I wanted to experiance just up and left the flavor profile and I was left disappointed.
On its own there isn't much burn at all and it's a good sipper rum, but the overall true lack of flavor qnd just dry notes just did not do it for me at all, and truly left me just wanting a bottle of the original more.
Fun to try and sip, but would just get the original in a heartbeat
"It is a fair bit drier. There is a touch of oak and a little bit of spice. Traces of ginger and little cinnamon. It’s very very short finish wise."
