Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
In a very distinct bottle, there is a light brown rum tasting after raisins and caramel. The rum is quite sweet. Wanna taste the 30-Year soon, already have the bottle in my rum cabinet...
Ron Quorhum XO 23 42% (Dominican Republic)
Eye: Reddish flat Coke
Nose: It is so direct in its overwhelming sweetness it is difficult to imagine the taste being nothing but the same as the smell. It is round, sweet, fat and oily and absolutely smacked with burnt sugar, treacle, cotton candy, honey and embrowned butter. It gives away a notion of what it would be like to drink rich mahogany and resin. There is also a faint layer of stale Cola and a rather wonderful whiff of wet nettles. As top notes we find some flowery citrus and a touch of old dry leather. Despite the pleasant notes the overall olfactory experience is not that impressive. The alcohol burn is well balanced but I seem to lack a depth other than the immense sweetness. It has a (s)low development when poured but I think it is safe to say this is and will continue to be – a sugar bomb! Coming back to it I find some orange pralines, oak vanilla and molasses. Pretty heavy stuff in its simplicity.
Mouth: What surprises me at first is the power of heavy weight alcohol. It is a pleasant surprise I might ad. I would have thought it would be bland and weak. What does not surprise me though is the repugnant liquid sugar flow that smothers every attempt of other tastes to compete for the attention of my taste buds. I could be imagining but it feels like my teeth hurt. It is so sweet it can nearly be percepted as sour, just like very cold ice can appear to be hot. It is round, smooth and ingratiating but in a slimy, off putting way. The alcohol burn is excellent and there are definitely some forgiving features, scents and flavors in this fat, oily bastard but nothing can compensate for the crazy over load eruption of floating sugar.
Reaction: I think it is pretty obvious this is not a buddy of mine. I don´t see how anyone can enjoy this as a serious spirit. The price is alright I guess and the bottle is super cool (I drink from the cubic one) but this rum reminds me more of an insecure bully in need of a shower than a refined old gentleman with wits and wisdom. Of course we cannot all be astute and well-mannered but one can at least try. The quote for this one, pertaining the sugar level, will be taken from “This Is Spinal Tap” and the comment on their amplifiers: “these go to eleven”.
Price: 369 SEK (500ml)
Tasted: 2016, in a Riedel Sommelier Cognac XO glass at room temperature.
I was trying this one with few other rums and did not find anything special about it. Despite a higher price tag...
I really like this one, will buy it again. Quite nice price vs taste.
Ron Quorhum 23-Year er en virkelig god rom, naturligvis ikke på højde med 30års, men klare sig godt med andre 23års.
you can not ask for more. A really good rum for the money, this is! Sweet, soft, flow right by your tastebuds and leaves nothing but a wonderful sensation behind. I can recommend this as an entrance to good rums. You will not be disappointed
This one is really aromatic, full body and a bit overly sweet! Can be described as liquid candy. Works well paired to a strong cigar.
Sweet and nutty nose, nice taste with nice sweetenes. A new favourite, one of my top 5!
Gillar denna romen sådär. Lite för whisky i eftersmaken för mig
Some people says that it might be to sweet but I really like it. Good aroma and a great taste that you don't expect from a rum in this price class. Since its so well priced it's normally this one I drink at home and every time it puts a smile on my face.
This is a good rum, if you are into the sweet stuff. But spend the extra cash and go for the 30 year old. It is much more unique and interesting.
Taste:round,oak,bit smoked,perfectly sweet
Tail:no alcohol punch,smooth,tasty,decent
Very smooth,well balanced rum for special occasions
Riktigt riktigt trevlig, all smak man vill ha och även doft, hade den varit ett uns sötare hade den matchat diplomatican, en svag nia.
Min flaska är fyrkantig
This rum is a real killer. The higher proof adds a bit of a warm kick, but then follows wonderful tastes of sweetness and some oak. Perfect for sippin on a cold winters night.
This deeply dark color reveil its true tast when bottled up. QRM 23y is a sweet rom with a exotic fruit taste to it.
It is not up there with 30y but dn close.
Bought this by recommendation.
Very nice sipping rhum...straight, no ice.
Long, lovely aftertaste with warming alcohol.
Available at the swedish monoply in 50cl bottles...perfect size if you want to try several different rhums
I was really surprised over this dark rum! the taste is big and long follow up taste.Nice aroma and smooth for slow sipping! also even better with dark chocolate. This comes out strong when testing on friends!
ikke helt på niv med sin storebror på 30 år, men stadig en klar favorit på øverste hylde. Blød, krydret, ikke for sød og meget balanceret.
On the nose I find caramel, molasse and nuts. The body has presence and the medium sweet palette offers notes of caramel, rasins and a fairly marked, but rounded barrel note. It has a darkish character with a little frehs hint of citrus. Nice.
Its not quite up there with its older brother QRM30. But its a very good rum.
Nose: Some alcohol (A bit sharp), toffee,
Taste: Oak, Caramel and dried plums
The balance throws me off a little bit, cause its very forward on the alcohol in the nose but in the taste its very sweet and caramelised. Little burn in the aftertaste but a good rum! I was leaning a 7, but im gonna go with 8.
mörk härlig färg,fantastisk doft,så jäkla god.
Certainly a good rum with a great taste. Like its older brother it got a nice spicy taste, but it cannot keep up with the QRM 30. It's a little too sharp in my opinion, but still very good.
Ale aj tak môžem prehlásiť, že bol naozaj dobrý, vyvážený a kvalitný,
