Tasty, but not quite great
After opening the bottle, an overpowering rubbery smell hit my nose. The taste seemed almost watery as if the smell numbed my sense of taste. This fortunately got better after a few glasses and few weeks. The nose is vanilla, spices, fruits, the taste is a bit one-dimensional, I would say as a spicy blend of very young and maybe some unaged Bajan and Jamaican rums. It has a substantial alcohol bite and the aftertaste is also prickly. For me it is hard to find any traces of wood, even in the smell of an emptied glass, where the woody tones always come out - if there actually are some. The taste is not entirely bad, the second part of the bottle is actually entertaining, but the blend badly needs aging. Plus point for no sugar added.
A dry rum with a rather sweet and fruity nose (prunes, apricot), vanilla and oak. This should be a 100% pot still blend but it is less estery than their 'Selected Rum' that has only 50% pot still rums in there. The estery part feels more Barbadan or from St. Lucia than Jamaican though there is some Jamaican rum in the mix. Despite no added sugars the rum feels almost sweet and is certainly easygoing and mellow.
Body is light rather than medium but it is really tastefull and mostly fruity with a bit of the barrel to it. It is the cheapest of all Ultimatum rums (around €20) and the only one bottled at 40% ABV. Medium long finish with sweet notes and oak. Well worth the money but clearly less full of character than their 'Selected Rum'.
The Ultimatum Infinitum 12 has matured for over 12 years on oak barrels. This rum made by Ultimatum is bottled in a stylish 70 cl bottle with an alcohol percentage of 40% ABV.
