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+

The looks of the bottle are better then the taste of the rum. Nice dark colored rum. Little burn on the end.

This is a very smooth rum. The best Borgoe I had so far...

On the nose dried fruit and a smokey leather. Warm and inviting. Medium bodied (rather?) dry rum that brings a lot of flavour on to the palate; oak, raisins, orange peel, leather and caramel. A bit of a dark smokey taste but with sweet and fruity notes to lighten it up. Well balanced straightforward rum with a peppery butterscotch ending. Very pleasant and proof that a rum doesn't need to be overly complex in order to be nice and entertaining. A treat!

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.
