Recommendable to most
Nose: strong, pleasant, toffee, oak, and some smoke.
Palate: rather sharp and thin taste, no volume, does not last long.
6,5 - 7
Nice mahogany colour with an earthy Sherry nose. A good fruity taste with a light sweetness but a mild burn. Good enough to be sipped but makes a good rum a and Coke. $46 at Manitoba Liquormart
This rum has properties that can make it the perfect rum for anyone who loves them, because in such a complex way, they are only found in this drink. It’s not perfect for me in every way, so I’d give an 8 rating, but I’d rather choose a 9 because this rum deserves to compensate for ratings lower than 8 because it deserves more!
Behind the stylish exterior is a really pleasant rum to sip, dry, slightly smoky, strong oak, red fruit and raisin flavors dominate for me with a medium finish. Not sweet! Ideal for cigars, complex, in many ways unique rum that deserves all the price!
Site:1888 is first matured in hand-picked ex bourbon American oak casks, then in European oak, first-fill sherry casks.
This blend of two worlds gives 1888 a complex yet smooth flavour profile.
Drink this at room temp! Great sipping rum.
Tasted this one in duty free on a flight.
The smell and taste are very well. The smell is a little bit sweeter than the taste. I expected mor sweetness. The bitterness is not dominant, it's a good balanced rum.
Smell: caramel, fruits, raisins, some vanilla
Taste: caramel, burned suggar, dry fruits, cognack, spice, coffee
Aftertaste: fruity, green apple (like Appleton)
One of my favorites from the Dominicanand a great value. I only drink aged rum and this is always stocked in my bar. Drink it neat or over a big ice cube.
Desde luego está muy bueno tiene un toque complejo que vamos y si te poner a buscar encuentras casi todos los sabores, no es barato 38'50€ y lo tomo solo o con un hielo, otra forma es tirar el dinero
This one is in constant rotation with the Abuelo 12 as my regular drinking rum. I will always ensure that my cabinet is stocked with both. The 1888 is such a smooth sipper, the smoothest for its price range for sure. A great rum I highly recommend without breaking the bank!
