Tasty, but not quite great
I just had a sampel of this rum.
As the title says it is a very sweet rum and I’m not the biggest fan of sweet rums.
Nose is fine, I smell vanilla and chocolate.
In the palate it’s the sweet vanilla and chocolate that dominates. But I can also taste some caramel and coffee.
Finish is short and sweet also.
As I wrote in the beginning, not my type of rum.
Had just a sample of it so this is just a first impression, but I will probably never taste it again or at least not buying me a bottle.
If I should like a sweet rum it must be more complex and be bottled at an higher ABV.
Ron Cristobal is named after Christopher Columbus, and bearing his portrait. Nina was one of his ships.
The brand is owned by the Danish company 1423 Worldclass Spirits and is produced by Alcoholes Finos Dominicanos which is one of the dominant alcohol producers in the country.
Ron Cristobal Nina is column distilled, and the rum in the blend is aged between 8 and 12 years in ex-bourbon barrels whereafter it’s bottled at ABV 40%.
The dominating aroma is vanilla. In mouth and palate it’s sweetness and vanilla that’s dominating but it’s also possible to detect caramel. During the rather short finish is it the sweetness that dominates.
Overall is it a very kind but dull rum in my opinion.
Picture: My emptied sample.
Smell of flowers. Taste of toffee, strawberry, chocolate and vanilla. Very smooth and soft. Really good and a bit complex. Has already got special place on the Shelf next to its little brother Pinta, but Niña is the best. Hopefully the third Columbus ship will join this year. (December 20th 2019 in calender from 1423)
ve vůni velká paráda, nasládlost, ovoce, velmi jemné koření
v chutí ta paráda pokračuje, nasládlá, karamel, čokoláda
závěr příjemný, velká spokojenost 👏
Not too long on rumtastings but already becoming a bit allergic to the term Premium prominently on the label and this Cristobal is symptomatic as for why. Blended to become a rum that will not make it hard for anyone to drink and then dosed with sugar, and again.
Not much flavours can escape all this sugar and apart from a 'rummish' -like taste the only note that still stands out is orange. Drinkable but after this I need half a sixpack of lager to wash the sugar out of my mouth. Sticky lips stuff.
Nez très discret et pas spécialement développé. Un peu agressif.
Un palais un peu plus rond en bouche et sucré que le ne le laisse présupposer son arôme initial.
Agréable, mais pas extraordinaire.
Dominican Republic is known for their sweet rums and this one from Cristobal is another one in a long line of the same rum. It actually doesn´t bring anyting new to the table.
Nose: Caramel, oak, vanilla and a faint scent of white chocolate
Taste: Chocolate, oak, vanilla and a slight feel of ginger with a short, lacking aftertaste
Overall: It is positive, that this rum is very easy to sip, but there are so many better sweet Dominican rums out there and this one brings nothing new to the table.
I don't know why but First nose and sip i felt Like back in Dom.
Never Had it bevor.
Sweet sipper with hints of oak and smoke.
Classic dominican but in the sweeter side.
