It is a cheaper version of Relicario. I have already reviewed the higher Supremo version. So how does it compare to its more expensive version?

It is again 40% ABV solera from the Dominican Republic, but aged 5-10 years in new American oak barrels and then finished in bourbon barrels. The aging is tropical. It therefore consists of younger rums than Supremo.

Bottle: Again very nice thick glass bottle, square, closed with a wooden screw cap. It comes in a paper carton.
Colour: Amber

Nose: It is slightly sweet. In addition to caramel and vanilla, there are also raisins, coconut and almonds. Compared to Supremo, the scent is a little sharper.
Taste: It is also sharper than Supremo. However, the flavour profile is very similar. At the beginning it burns quite a lot on the palate, then the taste mellows out. For a 40% ABV rum, unusually so. The rum needs to be left to stand for at least 10 - 15 minutes. The taste is typical of Spanish style rums and is only slightly sweet. You can detect vanilla, raisins, caramel, honey, nuts and even some wood notes.
Finish: Medium.

Conclusion: The taste of the Superior version is very similar to the Supremo one. The Supremo is a little more subtle, but again considerably more expensive. For this reason I rate both equally. If I had to choose, I'd probably go for the cheaper Superior.
Rating: 7/10

A great rum which shows you why we exactly like rum. Great mouthfeel and an OK complexity. Vanilla, grape and coconut. 7/10

Thats it. In a previous career I was a cabinetmaker and after a day of cutting oak you go home with the taste in your mouth. I took my first sip and that taste of cabinet came back to me after 20 years away from that business. Oak. Unmistakable.
I always enjoy the search for subtle flavor in every great rum, this one's subtle flavor is....oak. Can't taste any complexities, just wood.
All in all, a smooth rum, very plain, but drinkable.

Being a gold rum it is thin with little or no finish. But is is certainly better than most. Nose of bananna, almond, vanilla and a hint of oak. It has bite but is very smooth for a rum this young. balanced without complexity. Drinkable by itself. Would make an absolutely top notch mixer.
Well done!

This golden coloured rum isn't very intense at all. Aroma contains notes of the honey but nothing special. Taste is sharp with lot of alcohol flavour. In the end is this one very dry. Nothing I want to try again.
