Rum molto scuro e molto saporito, si sente molto il caramello e la vaniglia, la bottiglia è sigillata con la ceralacca

Picked this up on a whim, I've heard of this rum before but never tried it. Smooth finish but I think there is better rum out there for the price.

Color: Amber
Nose: Caramel and a hint of chocolate and coffee
Taste: Smokey tobacco that changes to sweet syrup is what I keep getting

Tastes of oak, vanilla, black pepper, molasses, and caramel. Medium afterburn with a smooth finish. Nice Candle wax presentation.

Excellent sipping rum, never to be used with a mixer. No sticky sweetness or residue. Nice complexity. I like half an ice cube no more.

This is rum from Venezuela up to 15 years old, which is aged in oak barrels using the solera system. This rum reputedly saved the distillery from collapse.

The rum is delivered in a tall bottle that has a wax-sealed cap. It looks quite impressive, but I prefer more chubby types of bottles, which in my opinion are more suitable for rum. I would rather leave tall bottles for wine. :-)

Color: Medium amber
Aroma: The first breath is less sweet and stronger oak woody. Overall, the scent is slightly vanilla and there is a feeling of synthetic varnish. Over time, the aroma softens and the rum smells quite pleasant.
Taste: The taste is especially caramel and dried tropical fruits, as well as a little vanilla and cinnamon. It is rather drier, a bit similar to bourbon. Overall, it's quite gentle, only at the end I noticed a slightly pungent tail. Other reviews say it's a sweeter rum, but I don't think so.

Overall, I definitely recommend tasting this rum, but I'm not thinking about buying a bottle yet.

My rating: 8 points from 10

I find this one to be a solid choice for my Mai Tais

I have had my eye on this for quite a while and finally broke down and bought a bottle Wow, what a great rum Full body, very smooth, lingers in the mouth. Not a lot of added spices, just great rum taste. I will certainly have more of this.

Acest rom este o experienta frumoasa. cred ca este cel mai echilibrat rom pe care l am incercat pana acum.
Cutie inalta sticla simpatica , culoare mahon usor deschis.
in miros se simte scortisoara si ceva tarie doar cat sa te anunte ca e acolo,destul de subtila, la fel de subtila si ceva dulceata.

in gust predomina cuisoarele, si in romul asta chiar pot distinge bine acest gust fata de cel de nuci cu care il confund de obicei. alcoolul este subtil, vine in valuri in doze mici , foarte placut. se mai disting in gust caramelul si ceva vanilie .
vine din venezuela ca si diplomatico reserva exclusiva si nu are la fel de multa complexitate dar este mai echilibrat si cu mult mai putin zahar (sau poate chiar nu are )
seamana cu flor de cana 18 , gustul pare apropiat (desi acolo am descris gust de nuci ) , dar la flor de cana taria este mult mai puternica .

aduce zambet )

That's all I have to say. Such a well balanced warm, vanilla & caramel rum. I know Solera rums are a bit controversial, but it really is tasty, regardless of the "age."
