Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
With this being only rested for a few months, you get more color than flavor from the barrels. I’ll be excited to see what they can offer in a few years.
Still a nice agricole with warm notes of creme brûlée
Dry, no added sugar, no caramel added. Pretty good.
Rum tasting in Amsterdam continued with Copalli Barrel Rested Rum. Nice old school bottle and label design. Light golden color. Strong grassy and floral notes mixed with plenty of oak straight to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong but sweet burn at the end.
I had high hopes for this rum despite the light color. The nose was very bland and smelled like rubbing alcohol. There was not much taste just alcohol burn. There are many better runs out there. Don’t waste your money.
44% ABV. 100% pot. Rested 6-10 months in ex-bourbon barrels. Round vanilla at first. Later, oak and barrel char. Later a bit of bourbon cherry comes out. Very interesting palate. Light, a little hot. Tasty, but short finish.
I'd be interested to try this aged quite a bit longer. 5 years, 12 years... but of course it would probably cost quite a bit more. This bottle is good, but doesn't do anything for me at its price-point.
