I tried to find out who the manufacturer was, but I couldn't. Personally, I assume the rum is made to order for a Czech company called Premier Wines & Spirits. The rum is not available anywhere else but in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. All supermarkets had it on sale before Christmas.

According to the description, it is a blend of rums from the Dominican Republic, Guyana and Trinidad with a maximum age of 15 years. It was aged in bourbon barrels. The proportion of each rum in the blend is not stated. Alcohol content 37,5% (just enough to still call it rum in EU).

Bottle: Classic one closed with a real cork stopper.
Colour: Honey.

Nose: Pinched and immatured. The rum has scent of vanilla, raisins, caramel, overripe apricots, pepper and a little wood.
Taste: It's better than the aroma. At first it burns on the tongue but then mellows out. It is sweet, but not over-sweetened. However, it is slightly watery (that's about the %ABV). The taste has flavour of vanilla, dark chocolate cinnamon, walnuts, pepper and a slight woodiness.
Finish: It is quite short.

As I wrote, it's a cheap rum from the 'Caribbean' available in any supermarket for around 20 EUR. It's better than Czech rum Republica, but at that price I'd probably grab e.g. Pampero Aniversario.

Overall rating: 5.5 out of 10

Aroma: Lehce vanilka, spálenina, nasládlost
Chuť: Vodová, vanilka a bonbóny
Dozvuk: Sušené ovoce, lehce kouřové, překvapivě nelihové
Sladkost: 2/3
Vzorek #7 na RumFest Praha 2021
Na RumFestu se rozlíval zdarma, takže i vzhledem k % a ceně očekávání žádné. Ale nebyl to žádný průser - překvapivě žádná lihovost ani přehnaná sladkost. Na nějaké grilování či podobné akce ideální.
