Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The Rum used to be served to sailors in Mexico, but they all got so hammered that the captains made it illegal to serve! 'El prohibido' the forbidden RUM.
The taste is interesting, but nothing to my liking at all. Not very well balanced and simply too 'much'.
Fruity first nose which turn into a walnut smell after 10min. Warm in mouth, nice on the tip of the tongue. Bend towards a sweet port wine, not a very good one. Short tail, candied fruits. Nuts again. Not really good.
Barva - sytě vínově červená
Vůně - na první "pohled" klasická rumová, karamel, toffiffee, koření
Chuť - melasa, hnědý cukr, hodně kořeněné, karamel, místy probleskuje tmavé sušené ovoce (rozinky, fíky). S postupujícím časem koření začíná zcela dominovat a přidává se i trocha soli - bohužel to pomalu, ale jistě ubíjí veškeré ostatní chutě
Dozvuk - velmi kořeněné
Hodnocení - koření ve finále zabíjí veškeré ostatní chuťové složky, což je škoda
OK I'm not a big fan of this rum but objectively, it's not a bad rum... The taste of alcohol is way too present for me but the honey and plum taste is quite good. Another point for the bottle which is really pretty (and the main reason why I bought it). But at 30€, it's a bit overpriced...
Var til Rom og Whisky messen, og smagte denne Rom. Jeg måtte opgive at drikke den færdig, den smagte simpelthen forfærdeligt.
Doesn't taste like rum at all. Doesn't taste like tequila. Tastes like a bad mix of both. Or like an agave brandy. Pure and not drinkable even with Cola
Typical spanish style rum. Not a ordinary rum. You can find common flavors of burned sugar and some fruits. Quite a dark taste.
The nose is not bad, quite complex with some more flavors.
The initial and middle taste are the same and too simple for me, there is almost no change. It was a little bit boring. The finish starts with some spice and bitternotes.
It reminds me a little bit of Remidy spiced rum, it's like a natural version of but with another finish.
Smell: caramell, burned sugar, dry fruits, apricot, some nuts (hazelnut), oak, spices (cloves), earth
Taste initial/middle: caramel, burned sugar, apricot
Finish: spice, burned sugar, cocoa/dark chocolate with wood, spices (cloves)
Complexity: 2.5 (Nose was 3)
Value (23€): 2/5
The rum aged in red wind barrels doesn't taste bad. But it's odd...and in the end it's a combination that is fun to taste but it's not suitable to sip the entire nicht.

"The rum is initially very sweet but the finish is slightly tart leaving an almost bitter lack feeling in the mouth."
