First of all, the "23" is misleading. Years? I doubt it. For a rum that's supposedly been baking in wood in the tropics for a couple of decades, this rum lacks oakiness. Actually, it's not very complex at all. Nothing offensive, but nothing memorable, either. I can't imagine ever needing to buy another bottle of this, when there are so many really compelling rums out there already.
Given my "so so" expirence with the 15 year old little brother, I was surprised with this one. The nose is round with toffee, vanilla, orange, fudge and cherry's. The palette is sweet with butterscotch, vanilla, a bit of chocolate, marcipan, orange peel and some nuttiness. Though it's sweet, I don't find it too cloying as the lengthy finish is slightly earthy and tingling, upholding some order.
Works great in drinks, it has a mild and balanced flavor. Good to sip straight also
It's fine as a mixer, although overpriced for that purpose. Not the best for sipping.
Taste is fine, but i prefer the 15 years over this. Tastewise..
23 year old is heavy on the taste, yet smooth very smooth.
Aroma is overall okay and palate very good
En god rom med mycket smak. Lagom söt och ingen spritsmak.
Nice but sweet tasting rum for a reasonable price. Not so sure about the 23 tho
Tasted alone is better. I tasted it with a top ruhm so I was influenced.
Many of us very satisfied by the room
Personally I give a 7
Solid havy bottle, gives me impression the content will last forever ).
Nice deep amber color.
Right from the bottle bites with alcohol on nose, but became not bad and attractive after standing for a while.
Thick and smooth, without hint of alcohol on palate.
WoW effect at the first sip. Hint of sweetness, something authentic.
Long lasting after taste.
Highly recommended (specially during quarantine period) )
Sugar: 5 GPL. It's says that it's a 23 year old rum but it tasted like a 13 year old rum. I didn't find much difference between this and the 15 year old version. If it's a solera rum there isn't much from the 23 barrel. I would pass on this and buy the much cheaper 15 year version.

Ok rom. 6 out of 10
Flot og stilfuld flaske og ok rom, ikke den helt stor eftersmag, men såmænd en fin smag.
Ikke et genkøb.
