Tasty, but not quite great
I bought this on my first trip to Costa Rica several years. I believe it was $10. I bought it to mix with fruit juices, 7-up, and coke. I remember I really liked it. So one night, I tried it by itself as a shot. It was the best shot of rum I had ever had to that point. So then I tried it neat. And I was surprised I coh I'd enjoy it by itself. Now I am a kind of a rum guru thanks to this rum. Try to 20, 25 and 30 year of this brand. Those are 3 of my top 10 rums out there. This is a great CHEAP rum.
Bottle: Nice bottle 1/1
Colour: Very light amber
Aroma: Not so rich but pleasant 0,5/2
Taste: Midly sweet but I do not taste anything specific. 2,5/5
Aftertaste: Smooth 2/2
Generally I like this rum when I go on a trip. As a first aid kid. It is not fancy drink for the evening. Never tried it as a mixer but I'd guees that would be great.
Interesting rum, very good for drinks. Taste like spiced for me. I didn't try sipping more, but I can imagine it. Better than Flor de Cana 7y for me.
But still nothing to look out for. The nose is much more promising then with its younger sibling and at the exit it is a tad less harsh. On the palate it almost resembles rum but the (artificial?) sweeteners make it unpleasant and each sip you take makes it worse, not less so. There stays an annoying bitterness afterwards on your tongue that makes me think that aspartame or stevia has been used instead of sugar.
I am glad this rum came in a 20cl bottle. Indeed marginally better than the horrible 5yo Centenario but not enough to give it a higher rating. Stay away if you really like or care for rum; even at this pricepoint a lot of better ones are available.
Sink and drown me! This be a right fine rum for a seven year old! She smells sweet of vanilla, brown sugar, oak, cola, and a hint of spices. She tastes how I prefer me ladies: smooth and spicy with a little sweet. Aye, this rum be dryer than most, so any of ye biscuit-eaters thirstin' for a candied dessert rum can weight anchor and set sail. There be a hint of smokiness on the finish, and there be a hint of burn goin' down the hatch, but with somethin' this tasty, only the dainty candy-lovin' lubbers will complain. This rum be worth a shot... or twelve. Aye, that be a pirate pun. Arrgh!
Sušší rum s ostřejším závěrem. Docela dost mi připomínal rumy República od Božkova. Něco mezi República Exclusiv a Reserva. Ve vůni příměsi vanilky a dubového dřeva, v chuti dubové dřevo.
Fľaša a etiketa je na pohľad menej vydarená a so štrubovacím uzáverom pôsobí lacno.
Farba svetlá-karamelová. Vôňa výrazná, ale neurčitá (skôr citrusová, zemitá)
Chuť je drevitá po sude, veľmi jemne nasladlá, pri lepšej fantázii vanilková. Záver je dlhý, ale alkolový, s tónmi mandle.
Plusom je, že ide o suchší rum, po ktorom by nemusela bolieť hlava, ani po celovečernom pití. Fľašu som kúpil za 17€. Celkovo je hladký, ale za mňa málo zaujímavý.
