Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I bought this at New Delhi airport duty free and was sure 20 USD for 1 liter of positively reviewed rum is a steal, until I tasted it. Not enjoyable for sipping at all. Has a strong aftertaste I can't pinpoint, and it's not pleasant. No issue with sweetness and not all that harsh. It's just that foul aftertaste. I'll update my review once I try to mix it with Coke, but I normally drink rum neat, so that's not a priority.
BTW, the bottle is very nice, but why not invest a few more rupees for a better looking cap and labels?
I can't profess to be an expert but I'm guessing that the great age of this has also made it boring. The flavour was heavy with molasses & somewhat flat. There was no spiciness or complexity of aftertaste.
It was drinkable & improved when opened up with a little water or ice but I personally wouldn't ask for it or buy it myself.
This was rough. I really wanted to like this but the aftertaste is indescribable. I'm not sure what it is, but its not pleasant as a sipping rum. argh......
Has a decent vanilla oaky taste with something else that I can't quite put to words. Might be charcoally - from heavily toasted / charred oak, but not sure. It's decent enough to drink straight or with mixers, but not something I'd rave about by any means. I bought it because it's from India and it came in a head-shaped bottle. I always am on the lookout for something fun to sip with my neighbor's super cool Punjabi father when he comes to town. It didn't disappoint. Was better than I thought it would be. $27 NJ
Was suprised by this rum, not a bad drink to be honest and a funky bottle to boot. Not many rums come out of India but this is a fair one.
Had a bit of a jarring taste, not unpleasant but also not a smooth experience either. Not one I would go for again
Drank a lot of this in India as it seemed to be the best available and brought a bottle home. I sip it occasionally but not my favourite by any means. A bit harsh with lingering aftertaste.
Drank this in Goa. Nice bottle. Cheap cap.
Caramel and Toffee smell.
More coffee and hints of chocolate in taste. Nothing harsh. Pretty smooth finish.
Taste more like an after dinner liquor that is a bit too sweet.
