Schönes sattes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase recht "jung", frische Düfte von tropischen Früchten und frisch gerösteten Gewürzen, Vanille und Blumen liegen als Dekoration auf einer Karamellcreme. Ganz weit weg sind dezente Holztöne zu vernehmen.
Im Gaumen ehrlich, direkt und doch ausgewogen. Helles Karamell und frische Früchte wollen die Geschmeidigsten sein, Schokolade, Nelken, Kardamom und weisser Pfeffer eifern nach, die Holznuancen bleiben weit zurück.
Im Abgang ein Karamellbonbon mit Pfefferfüllung und der Pfeffer hallt lange nach und eine Meeresbriese bleibt auf den Lippen zurück.
Ein toller Rum für Einsteiger und Geniesser. 7+

Nice rich mahogany in the glass.
In the nose quite "young", fresh scents of tropical fruits and freshly roasted spices, vanilla and flowers lie as decoration on a caramel cream. Quite far away, discreet wood tones can be heard.
On the palate honest, direct and yet balanced. Light caramel and fresh fruit want to be the smoothest, chocolate, cloves, cardamom and white pepper emulate, the wood nuances remain far behind.
In the finish a caramel candy with pepper filling and the pepper echoes for a long time and a sea breeze remains on the lips.
A great rum for beginners and connoisseurs. 7+

I have previously had some good experiences with Suriname and their rums and having tried the 8-year from Borgoe, then it was only natural to "upgrade" to the 12-year.

Nose: Oak, Caramel, Orange Peel
Taste: Oak, Caramel, Orange Peel, Pepper and a slight leathery aftertaste
Overall: This is not a complex rum in any sense of the word, but it doesn´t need to be. It would be great as a sipper after a long day at work and is a slight improvement over the 8-year from the same company.

Schöne dunkle Farbe im Glas.
Leichte Töne von Leder und Teer.
Etwas scharf im Abgang.
Interessanter Rum mir aber etwas zu scharfer Alkoholabgang

New country in my list, yay!
Nose: very nice, fruity with hints of wet ashes.
Palate: dry, but pretty voluminous and pleasant. Not a sweet one, but with character. Lasts long enough on the tongue. I like.

Found it dry and oaky with pepper at the end. Some caramel there too. Short-medium aftertaste with little burn.

Dufter af fermenteret frugt. Smag af lidt karamel og vanilje, men også tørt træ og peber. Det hele forsvinder hurtigt, da den er uden dybde. (17. December 2019 i 1423)

Dark rum with classical aroma, however with whisky and caramel aftertaste.

Borgoe som doteraz vôbec nepoznal a preto som bol rád ,že môžem ochutnať ich 12 ročný rezervu. Exotický surinamsky chuť má peknú vôňu za ktorou však chuť zaostáva. Chýba jej balance medzi zlozkami a hladkost,ktorú by som privital

Dark aged barrel rum without much unique characteristic, it has perhaps that fruity whisky flavor.

I've never had a rum from Suriname and I was expecting it to be similar to Guyanese rums but I was wrong. The nose was very peppery and sweet at the same time. The first taste was much different with oak and vanilla. I would definitely drink this one again.

This is really good, old school rum. My first experience from Suriname rums. In smell you can feel sugar cane, vanilla and wood. In taste flavours of caramel, vanilla, fruit and oak.
