Flawed with a glimmer of hope
I was very excited to try a combination of sweet rum with some peaty finsh.
Unfortunately I'm quite disapointed. Not even because of the strong peatiness. To be honest I even expected more peat. The Main problem of this rum are the sharp alcohol notes and flavours in both nose and taste. Nose: strong alcohol, brown sugar, raisins, some dried fruits, and finally on the end some peat.
Taste: quite sweet with sharp alcohol flavours with a slightly peaty finish.
After some time the strong alcohol flavours disapear and it's getting a bit smoother.
Ok but not much more.
Rum tasting at home with a good buddy of mine continues with Ron Esclavo 12y Stauning Whisky Cask Finish. Nice bottle and label design, very close to the traditional Ron Esclavo 12y concept. Bright golden color. Plenty of oak and oh so much peatiness to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong burn at the end. Whisky lovers can easily add 2 points to my score. Peaty Whisky lovers can add 6 points, maybe even 7.
