Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Sugar: 0 to 3 GPL. This rum is similar to Bacardi white rums or Captain Morgans, or any other "Well" rums in your average bar. It is definitely a mixing rum. It's a young rum with a decent but Raw rum aroma. In tasting this rum it started out as okay but then there was something in the taste that told me to stop and put it with mix. It might have been that my palate was compromised by earlier samplings of my top shelf rums, but value is a lesson you have to learn over and over. This rum didn't have that harsh chemical taste that are present in some of the cheaper rums I have reviewed. I am certain there are much better rums to be found in Columbia for sipping, however if you wanted a rum and coke, this would be a good rum to use.
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...
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 :-)
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.
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.
