Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I had this a year go. I tried it alongside the Bacardi 8 year old. This is a very nice rum, it is full of flavour and very smoothe BUT, considering the cost of this Rum I would not recommend it over the 8 year old or 10 year old Bacardi. If the cost was around £60/£65 then I would recommend this rum.
Got two bottles: Santa Teresa and Bacardi from the same price league. Not trying to comparing their taste side by side, instead just some emotions.
Ladies first - ST: wow effect at the first touch, but it gets continue just fine.
Mister B: strong man, kicks a bit with alcohol, but later develops wow effect.
At the next night I preferred to stay with Bacardi.
Both are great, smooth and entertaining. Score 8
This one is exceptional. It's a mixed style: light and heavy.
The taste is intensive, fresh and mild, but it has also some heavy aromas.
If you just started with sweet rums, I think you need some more experience to understand it.
Got this for 45€/l, extreamly cheap in Germany.
This is an old version (launched in 2014 for Travel Retail at 99$). If you see it at this price, buy at least two bottles.
And some interesting fact: this rum is similar to Facundo Eximo.
Smell: caramel, oak, molasses (burned suggar, coffee and salt), some gum, fruits (slightly orange, banana)
Taste initial: caramel, molasses, champignon (from the 1yo)
Taste middle: orange, liquorice, some gum, peppermint, spice
Finish: warm burn, spice
Aftertaste: peppermint, liquorice, medicine
Additional Information (https://www.moodiedavittreport.com/):
"Based on Bacardi’s rarest rums that have been aged in oak barrels for 10 to 16 years resulting in an average of 12, the blend is balanced with a touch of 1yo rum to develop a light freshness on the palate, Bacardi said. Similarly, the Maestro de Ron shapes the flavours of this rum by using a mix of charcoals to give Bacardi Reserva Limitada its balance and smoothness."
So not that I've trIed them all but this one is very nice. When 1st out retailed over $100 and all of a sudden... what $50?!?!? Turns out was overrated. At least that's what I was told. Bottom line, neat or one a single rock....all night long.
