Tasty, but not quite great
Light on the nose, oak, vanilla, chocolate, rather smooth taste with pronounced oak, the aftertaste is almost not there. Passable as sipper, there is nothing unpleasant, but also nothing I would like to return to.
Light to medium amber in color. Strong smell of banana. Moderately creamy mouthfeel. Tastes a little sweet with some caramel. Caramel lingers to the finish after everything else has cleared out. A little bit of vegetal tobacco and vanilla. Surprisingly I don’t taste the banana that is so overwhelming when sniffed. Overall a pretty good rum.
Nothing really special about this fellow. Had it not been for the good company and great mood when tasting it, would probably have forgotten all about it already.
To try just once, just for the shake of it, ask the bartender to perform some extra orange peel treatment on the glass before serving so that you might get close to a "decent" outcome.
Pourer said age statement is solera (sigh), so there's only trace amounts of 12 year-old juice in here. But hey, it's fine; tastes how you'd expect. It also appears to be priced appropriately, and is not as dosed as many others from Central America.
Skip it for sipping, but highly recommended as a mixer.
Wasn't impressed with this bottle.Tasting it neat was not great, but it improved with a bit of water. It's quite sharp, but you are not rewarded with a nice after taste. It makes for a nice sharp Cuba Libre though, so I'll use it for mixing. I paid €19 for this bottle and at that price I guess you can't expect a real sipper, so you get what you pay for.
For the price this is a good choice for adding to your favorite cocktail. Bit of a burn and harshness going down to deter from drinking neat.
