Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A whopping 58%ABV on this rum. It comes off on the aroma as expected but also shares some carmel and oak.
An aggressive hit to the taste buds with carmel and spices, dried fruit too. Lots going on flavour-wise but hard to discern with the slugging of alcoholic strength. Not as much "bite" as I would expect but quite a bit of warmth!
I don't need to get this one again, but it is a hell of a rum!
Ve vůni i chuti mi připomíná Foursquare, tím je asi řečeno vše, jen stojí polovinu.
Škoda, že ho bylo tak málo a nejde už sehnat.
Měl jsem jej ve vzorku ne slepé degustaci od kamaráda z české rumové komunity, a napsal jsem mu, co je zmíněno výše. Hned jsem se díval po netu kde lze zakoupit.
For a decidedly overproof rum, it has a great nose considering. Sweet oak on the tongue. Surprising smooth. Best watered down to prevent immediate drunkeness. Would certainly buy again and in fact this has made me wish to seek out more offerings from the boutique-y rum company. The vegetative flavours are complimentary and dont take away from the smoothness. Only downside is it kind of finishes like burnt tires. Enjoy!
Po stopách svých sourozeneckých značek That Boutique-y Whiskey Company a That Boutique-y Gin Company je tato Boutique-y Rum Company tady, aby přinesla lahodný rum dobrodružným nováčkům a rumovým zvědavcům.
Výchozím bodem jsou zapomenuté sudy, již uzavřené lihovary a neobvyklé rumové přístupy.
The first bottling of Casa Santana rum from Colombia from That Boutique-y Rum Company, and it's a fascinating expression which was matured for 12 years before bottling. Very satisfying stuff, with some unexpected flavours coming through. The label is just as curious, featuring some sort of sorceress winning at pontoon while ominously holding a fireball in her hand. Well, you wouldn't try you hardest to win when faced with the constant threat of a fireball, would you? (Even if you've got one of those cool visor hats!) Oh, and there's a massive Andean Condor, the national bird of Colombia, also losing the game and wearing a snazzy hat.
Batch 1 is a release of 3,766 bottles.
Nose: Toffee oak, soft vanilla and brown sugar lead among touches of salinity, sweet red chilli heat and hot tyres. Gingerbread adds a little aromatic spice among plenty of grilled tropical fruit and raw honey before ground black pepper and vegetal, almost Mezcal-esque notes develop way below.
Palate: Through melting butter, creamy banana pie, a little salted caramel and plenty more heaps of exotic fruit comes rich baking spice, wasabi and just a touch of oak char.
Finish: A long and confident finish. Thick caramel, dry nutmeg spice and some engine oil.
Overall: All kinds of brilliant and bizarre, it’s a Captain Beefheart of a rum.
