Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A. H. Riise have risen in popularity in recent years, especially in my home country of Denmark, but the sad truth is, that this bottle have as little to do with rum as it has to do with Denmark.
Nose: Very sugary smell with notes of orange and a small hint of liquorice
Taste: Big load of sugar and caramel with small subtle hints of black liquorice and mocca
Overall: This is a very popular rum, but it is really not for me in any way. I simply don´t get the hype. It has little to do with both navy-style, Denmark or even rum in general.
On the nose, fake orange aroma, on the palate, liquid candy. Has over 100 g/l of added sugar, which rivals Coca Cola and other soft drinks. I would not have a problem with this, if it was marketed as liquid candy, but this is marketed as rum, which it most definitely is not. The very notion that sailors would drink this sugary pudding is ridiculous. If you want good navy style rum, go for Pusser's Gunpowder, OVD or Woods. Stay away from this.
If you wanna get a sugarhigh this rum is for you! By far the sweetest rum I have ever tasted. More a liqueur than a rum. The taste is nice except for the overwhelming sweetness. For me there must be a fine balance in the sweetness in a rum, if it's to much it destroyes the rum. The smell is full of punchpralines, vanilla, arrak and rumraisins. The smell is the same as the taste. This is a overpriced rum, not worth the money. Maybe the other A. H. Rise rums are better.
This one is really too sweet, disappointed me a bit, especially for the price. Bottle looks cheap. Taste reminds just pralines.
Not recommendable from my side.
"Sipped the rum is extremely smooth and totally devoid of any alcohol burn whatsoever. Taste wise it is all cloying chocolate and sugar coated tangerines with a tiny hit of marmalade."
