Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Very Very good, enjoy this with a good cigar. Is well balanced.
Great dominican rum. Impossible to find in the U.S. though.
Très bon straight et très doux! Il coûte $20 à Punta Cana, attention de ne pas le payer $160 la bouteille comme un vendeur me l'a offert la première fois!
C'est toutefois un rum qui est doux comme de l'ea et qui a un bon petit goût de caramel brulé mais très subtile sans rentrer dans un rum très sucré! À goûter absolument! Un très bon rum pour s'initier dasn le rum straight
El rom es muy bueno es suave y un sabor agradable ellos sacaron el aniversario de la compañia
Notes of caramel, wood, fruit, very smooth with little to no burn
Not available in USA, had to obtain via Denmark or England.
However, worth the extra cost, one of my fav rums.
Love the Dominican/Cuban style, as are- Brugal, Barcelo, Botran, Matusalem, Havana Club
The nose - while I realise that this is not great, with far too much caramel I find it strangely alluring. Again on the palate there is far too much caramel, but it marries in well with the fruit and the alcohol. I am sure that many will find this far too confected and too sweet, but I really don't mind it as the kick of the alcohol keeps it altogether.
And....it's well priced.
Vyborny rum z Dominikanskej republiky. Vo voni je ovocie a alkohol, jemne a prijemne pitie, dozvuk - teply, citit alkohol. Za mna velmi dobry rum za prijemnu cenu.
I bought this bottle being recommended by the owner of the liquor store and I don't regret it. A very smooth and rich rum, without being too sweet, that's how I like them lately!
This was the first "nice" rum I had tasted. I was on holiday in the Dominican Republic about 25 years ago and was shocked at the contrast with UK supermarket rum. I had not looked for it in the UK until recently and almost didn't buy it as I was worried it would not live up to my memory. Luckily it was every thing I remembered.
Nice Amber colour, smooth caramel notes. What's not to like?
Read some of the reviews here, did not sound very good. I bought some at duty free in Dominican as a reccomendation from a friend. I found it a very nice rum. Good flavor, not strong alcohol taste or aroma as some stated. I like a rum with a strong taste. Not like Bacardi, which I find boring. I would buy this rum again
It has a smoothness and sweetness unlike any rum I have ever tasted neat. Much better straight. Overpowers mixed drinks.
One of the best Domican Rums.
Great relation between quality and price.
This rum was beyond expectation.
It's has very good basic flover.
Midium bodied with great balance of vanilla and caramel flovers and sweetness.
"Typical Rum", for me.
Un bon gout de vanille, caramel d'épices, café et de bois brulé. Il est doux en bouche et une longue note. On goute le fut de chêne, je l 'aime bien et je suis pas déçu. Merci a JC pour cette bonne bouteille.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Dominikánská republika
Aroma: Velmi hřejivá, kořenitá vůně, docela výrazná, středně plná. Hodně kůže, skořice, lehce kakao a ž káva, cedrové dřevo. Při přechutnání pak trocha ztrouchnivělého dřeva. (87 b)
Chuť: Chuť dobře odráží vůni. Není nijak moc sladká, spíš kořenitě nasládlá, pikantní, v dochuti mírně propolis, hřebíček. (85 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnán společně s josém na naší společné nepravidelné degustaci. U josého mi chutnal víc, než doma při přechutnání, ale mám pocit, že za to mohla plastová miniatura. Došly mi skleněné lékovky a tak jsem v nouzi použil plast, pak jsem toho litoval a lékovku už nadobro vyhodil. Konečné hodnocení jsem pak mírně ponížil oproti původnímu hodnocení. Výhodou je cena něco málo přes 500 korun. A chutnal mi víc, než La Mauny XO, který stojí skoro 3x víc.
I agree on the good quality/price compromise.
Good taste, not too spicy, at the end a bitter taste keeps on your throat, that is not a bad point at all, but it is quite too long.
The nose of this rum is of caramel. When you start to drink it you get flavours of soft caramel and dried fruit and a nice spice as it leaves your mouth with q nice spicy burn exit. It reminds me of a light cognac when you drink it as it is a light rum. Sip it slowly and this rum will grow on you. It has a sweet finish rhat that stays moving leaving a dry finish. If you're a rum collector this is not a bad rum to own I would say it sits on the fence in regards to the overall verdict.
What a nice gift! Good rum. Unfortunately Not available in the Netherlands. Bought in the dominican rep. I enjoyed it a lot. Thank you David!
Strong alcohol taste that makes it hard to identify flavors beyond caramel and vanilla. After you let it breath, it is possible to identify a fruity taste as well. It has a dry, woody aftertaste with a slightly strong kick at the end.
Recommendable if you like stronger spirits and not as sweet as the usual rums.
In nose: sweet and vanilla; some fruit as well. Remember, you have to let it breath, otherwise you will only be able to Id a lot of alcohol.
The price is less than 30€.. incredible !
The color is light amber, the first flavor on the nose is mild sweet sugar, after the alchol is growing and stay.
On the mouth the first sensation is the alchol, but for 1 second after you get immediately the sugar flavour with some banana and mango, vanilla , all very milded . Vanish fast in the tongue, the tail is excelent. Price/taste 10 !
Nice aroma and color, there is a strong punch of alcohol in the first sip but let it sit for five minutes before tasting and that would make justice. Indeed excellent value for such bottle.
Flavorful and somewhat complex due to its lengthy time aged in barrels. Some sweetness combined with just enough heat. Spice, vanilla and butterscotch flavors keep you coming back for more.
Enjoyable neat or mixed, the moderate price allows you to do both and not feel guilty about it!
