Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Some hints of oak, but the burn overpowers it. Wasn’t great mixed. Nice bottle design, but not a big fan of screw tops.
I bought this bottle because I thought it might be interesting to taste a Filipino rum. Definitely over overpriced for what I paid, and it had an aftertaste when I drank it neat. I added ice and figured that it might taste different on the rocks. Still nasty aftertaste. I then try to mix it with Coca Cola and you can still taste that after taste. Maybe something heavier like daquiri mix might cover the taste. Not very good. I was shocked to see it sold at the Barclays Center, especially when there are so many other rums that you could get in the New York City area.
Enjoyed a bottle of Gold Tanduay Rum while vacationing in Sedona AZ. Boring bottle and label design. Golden color. Vanilla extract, butterscotch, pure alcohol, mild cocoa and plenty of oak to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Surprisingly strong burn at end. Not my cup of tea.
Au nez, on sent la cerise noire. Il est doux et au gout, on perçoit la vanille et la cerise. Il est différent de tous ce que j'ai déjà goûté. Ce n' est pas dans mes favoris, Il me fait penser au Dzama.
Complex array of different notes going on here. From butterscotch to vanilla to cocoa. Dried fruit, tea, oak, tobacco and sandlewood. Does have some alcohol burn in the back of the throats which is fine in my book.
I like sipping this neat but mixed and this rum will hold its own as well.
I had read about the Tanduay brand online and thought it interesting. Surprisingly I found it in a liquor store in tiny Eastpoint, Florida so I got a bottle. It is definitely not like the Caribbean rums that I am learning more about. Its flavor is heavy on a caramel and has a strong burn. Could be used for some neat or on the rock but works better for me in sweet mixed drinks. A bit off in flavor for my personal tastes.
