Tasty, but not quite great

Light citrus and orange notes with vanilla and chocolate. Very sweet with some leather notes. A good one but slightly below its big brother.

Chuť karamel, vanilka, sušená jablka, hrušky a koření. Závěr má trochu hořký ocas.

Caramel, dates and fruit aroma, coconut and smokey flavour, very smooth and dry.

As a big fan of Dominican rums and Barcelo I must say I enjoyed this bottle. Its really doesn't offer much other than what it claims to be rum and very smooth at that with no off putting notes or excessive burn. Incredibly easy to drink and highly recommended.

Drank this a while ago so I don't have any specific details on the rum. I do remember enjoying it but it did cost £30. There are better rums around the 20-25 range.

The bottle makes you think it's special. But it's only a tasty rum, nothing special for me

Сама бутылка выглядит представительно, не дёшево.

Цвет медный, достаточно тёмный.
Ножки стекают со средней скорость.

Аромат интенсивный и сложный - сладость, богатая ваниль, сухофрукты из которых что-то сильно доминирует, но разобрать что именно так и не смог.

Вкус очень сладкий и очень мягкий - меласса, приятная ваниль, сухофрукты, немного карамель и варёная
морковь, которая здесь диссонирует. Аромат и вкус коррелируются. Это самый мягкий и самый сладкий ром, что довелось пить. Пьётся очень легко.

Как для рома из колонны непрерывной дистилляции вполне не плохо. Свой характер присутствует.

Пустой бокал очень приятно пахнет мелассой и ванилью.

Через месяц простоя половины бутылки, напиток успокоился и уже не такой оверсладкий, и в целом стал приятней.

На утро ощущения нормальные. Есть с чем сравнить :)

Сложный аромат и вкус
Очень сладкий, присутствует диссонанс во вкусе.

For some reason, this rum has always just reaslnated with me. A faint hint of smoke, and toffee finish. It is strong and does have a slight burn but is still smooth. Goes great with smoked red meat. I recommend or sip when I have a roast in the smoker. And I like the rectangular bottle. That is unique for display.

Mir war der zu fasslastig. Wem sowas taugt der is hier richtig. Ich steh eher auf süße Rums wie A.H.Riise oder Pantation. Is kein schlechter Rum, einfach nur nicht mein Geschmack.

pleasant sweet aroma - icing, honey, cinnamon, exotic wood. In the mouth there are clear notes of sherry, wine mold and still a lot of honey. Light finish - water with honey, rose water, a delicate root note, slightly tobacco.
