Easily consumable in a bind
At first I had to double check the percentage as I thought I might have bought an overproof rum by mistake. It's a fairly standard 40% but tastes much stronger.
The label claims notes of vanilla and tobacco, but I feel like I missed the vanilla entirely and the tobacco was somewhat overpowered by the general petrol-like qualities of it
Will be drinking the rest of the bottle in cocktails to disguise what is a rum that is frankly, not to my taste at all.
On the lower end of Chairman’s reserve offering some of which are excellent. This is a well rum for mixing, don’t try to drink it straight.
I can't understand the negative reviews, to me this is a flavor bomb. The smoke of demeraran and a funk more tame and refined than anything jamaican but still very pleasant. I think it's a wonderful neat sipper. Yes the finish has a little burn that I wouldn't expect for this proof, but not nearly enough for me to dock its rating over.
Seriously, you're not going to do much better for the money.
This one makes me shudder....a piquant, pungent punch on the nose and a spice bomb slap in the mouth. Way too much going on here to drink neat and there’s a nasty cardamom flavouring that lingers. It settles down with some mixer but for the price point, there are much better rums. Maybe I have should have tried it with an Indian meal.
Nose: sweet, medical.
Taste: not so sweet and dry, green apple, and smth else i cannot identify, like medical drugs ). Dont have spirit in your mouth, but strong enough.
Aftertaste: smooth and dry.
I would use it as a simple sipper. Good for an evening with fire and friends.. ))
