Truly a fantastic choice
Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this with me as part of a rare rum exchange!
I thought this rum had the potential to be my all time favorite, since (as of this review) the Ron Esclavo XO is my #26 rum, while their XO cask is #3! Meanwhile, the Ron Quorhum 30 is my #13 rum so I thought this could be even higher than #3. But ultimately, I wasn't sure if I even liked this better than the regular 30 year Quorhum.
Great rums usually taste better at cask strength. But to me, this has about the same flavor as the Quorhum 30, with a little more burn. I even tried other high abv rums to be sure my taste buds weren't off, and it seems they weren't.
Like the Ron Quorhum 30, this smells and tastes of molasses, caramel, vanilla, spice, oak, honey, and just a hint of bourbon.
A fantastic rum; I easily rate this a 10.
Rum tasting during the global lockdown started with Ron Quorhum 30y Cask Strength. Very flimsy cardboard box surrounds a beautiful bottle design. All black labels. Hand written numbered bottle. Deep mahogany color. Very sweet molasses mixed with mild chocolate and oh so smooth ending. Simply a spectacular rum which goes straight to my Top 20 list after well over 2,500 rums later.
OMG! This one is incredible it's a really complex rhum. 100 proof and spicy but still very round...
It's a bomb both in taste and scent, in fact so much that it's hard to pinpoint all of it. But I'll give it a go.
Scent: Dark cane molasses, tobacco, oak, raisin, leather, vanilla and some fruitiness...
Taste: Cane syrup, tobacco, vanilla, oak and fruitiness....
Best rhum I tasted so far.
This rum has, what I was little bit missing by standard 30y version (which is good, but maybe too much universal, to taste as much people as possible).
The Cask Strenght has BALLS ! The 50% vol is exactly perfect to level up the complexity, intensity and taste, without the burning. From the new line of differently finished 30y versions this is the only one who deserve the higher price - due to higher level of alcohol and perfect taste. I will watch the discount actions and this bottle will be definitely always placed in my bar.
Only 1000 bottles from 2018. It is more complex then my favorite Q30. I was a bit afraid of Bourbon aroma. Yes,it is there but it goes hand in hand with a decent amount of sweetness. Smooth.
OMG ! One of the absolute best rum I have ever tasted.
Cask strength at 50.2 percent is has even more taste than the regular Solera 30.
A clear 10+ rum !!
