Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Not the greatest country for rum but there where some decent brands. If I remember correctly I mostly mixed this one with coca cola. It had a nice note of chocolate when drinking neat :-)
This was a very gracious gift from some friends who traveled to Colombia. It has a hot, almost spicy palate with a hint of smokiness. It bears some similarity to scotch, but without the long burn. Where this could really shine would be in sweet mixed drinks to calm the sugar a bit.
My first experience with Ron Medellin was in Medellin, Colombia enjoying it with friends so the sent and taste of this rum always brings great nastalgia.
As far as my taste in rum, i prefer sweet and full of character and depth. Ron Medellin is not one of those rums. It is a light rum with a slight escence of bourbon. This is a rum that I enjoy mixing with cola and drinking with my Colombian friends while we reminisce about the artwork of Fernando Botero and the days of Pablo Escobar.
This is not a rum for sipping.
One of those rums to drink if your need something fast. Not a rum to enjoy neat as the limited aging hasn't been able to mellow and flavor this rum. An inexpensive mixer from Columbia that is just that...inexpensive! Strong burn and not too mellow or flavorful.
Similar to low end Bacardi rums...
It others in the Ron Medellin line are available, upgrade. I think this deserves at least a 5-rating. Good for a CubaLibre or other mix.
must have had gallons of this stuff when i was visiting medellin, everybody drinks it, staight up, and it's even sold in milk carton style boxes, it should have been a warning, i did not heed it. it also didn't matter, i had a massive good time there, worth the hangovers. it's the ex girlfriend you'll always remember warmly but will never get the keys to the apartment again.
