A no nonsense rum. RL Seale is setting the standard on how to create a delicious rum with no additives, correct age statement and all for a reasonable price, around £30 in the uk.
I love the bottle. Love the rum.
Not a high end sipper, but still enjoyable.
Can taste vanilla, caramel and some oak.
A bit too harsh and too much alcohol burn/taste to get a higher rating.
I put this on a similar rating as Bacardi 8 and Doorly's XO for example.
Sugar: 4 gpl. Nice butterscotch taste and a bit of sharpness in the nose at first. Traces of vanilla, honey, nuts, and oak tasted in the follow up. It has a sweet taste at first but that fades away and is replaced with some heat, probably due to the slightly higher 43% alcohol. Cool bottle and the price in Total Wines was $20 making this a great deal. When sipping it needs ice. Otherwise this is a very high end mixing rum. Well worth having in your collection.
En soit je lui mettrai normalement un 7 pour le rhum en lui même, je monte à 8 pour saluer la transparence liée à cette fabrication sans additifs, ce côté brut et le prix tout à fait convenable et cohérent. Pas un rhum d'exception mais très bon sec, arômes riches, un bon rhum à déguster facilement.
So I recently tried this rum and... you know what? It was good. It was really good. I believe this would taste like heaven in some coke. Or perhaps a rum daiquiri. Or something else. It is, IMO, the best mixer I've tried so far.
But I would not sip this rum straight. It has way too much burn, and as such is simply not smooth. There's an almost acetone(?) quality to it, which I expect from most mixing rums, but not from a sipping rum.
So mix it. Use it in your cocktails. But don't sip it straight.
This unique bottle made me pull it off the shelf and the price of $22 was great motivator. Sealed with a imitation cork stopper. The body is light but flavorful. This sips great and is a wonderful rum for those that are just getting into aged rums.
This is an aged rum that is excellent with Cola, but not complex enough to drink on the rocks or straight up. Sweet and woodsy. The bottle is awesome.
This is either an excellent mixing rum or just a fair sipping rum. Almost too good for mixing. Unfortunately, it's just not great as a sipping rum. It has a good caramel nose. Sweet vanilla at first. Then spicy a bit nutty but quickly turns harsh. Just not smooth enough to be a good sipping rum.
R.L. Seales 10 Y.O. is een gouden Rum die 10 jaar in kleine eikenhouten
vaten heeft gerijpt. Complexe aromas met hints van noten en intensief en rond in smaak met noten van zoete vanille. In de afdronk lang met tonen van gebrande amandelen.
De fles heeft dezelfde vorm als de vroegere flessen waar de zeelieden hun
rum in bewaarden.
At the Mabel bar in Paris :
Fist thing you notice is the cool design of the bottle itself !
Nice looking in the glass smells good and most important thing : very nice sensation in the mouth !
Dry rum spice and vanilla maybe anis and cedar notes !
Great one !
