Enjoyed a bottle of Pancho Villa 1988 with my buddies in Germany. Very unique labeling and great sturdy bottle design. Deep mahogany color. Very strong oak straight to nose and palate. Mild burn at the end. Solid 10 for a Whisky lover.

Fin rom, til pengene. Har en god eftersmag uden at blive for sød.

Mahagonifarbiges Bernstein mit Kupfer Reflektionen im Glas.
In der Nase, eine Tiefe und Ruhe kommt Dir entgegen wie in einem tiefen dunklen Wald. Die elegante verspielte Frische bildet einen Interessanten Gegenpol. In Karamell gegossene Limettenzesten mit einem Hauch Schokoladen Staub. Frisch gehobeltes Holz mit einer dünnen Moosschicht überzogen. Nach längerer Zeit kommt etwas geräucherter Sellerie dazu.
Am Gaumen ganz weich und diskret. Karamell und Toffee sind zu Beginn recht Präsent bevor das Tequila Fass mit seinen schrägen Aromen dazwischenfunkt. Unreife Beeren und weisse harte Früchte rütteln an der Solera Harmonie.
Im Abgang zu Beginn lieblich süsslich, danach bleibt leider etwas Bitterkeit zurück.
Ein Ron der ein Wenig von der einheits Oliver & Oliver Zucker Linie abweicht. Macht Ihn dadurch aber auch nicht Besser aber weniger süss. Für Entdecker und Ausbrecher.

Mahogany coloured amber with copper reflections in the glass.
In the nose, a depth and calm comes to you like in a deep dark forest. The elegant playful freshness forms an interesting counterpart. Lime zests poured into caramel with a touch of chocolate dust. Freshly planed wood covered with a thin layer of moss. After a longer period of time, some smoked celery is added.
On the palate very soft and discreet. Caramel and toffee are quite present at the beginning before the tequila barrel interfere with its strange aromas . Unripe berries and white hard fruits shake the Solera harmony.
The finish is lovely and sweet at the beginning, but unfortunately a bitterness remains after that.
A Ron that deviates a little from the Oliver & Oliver sugar line. Does not make it better but less sweet. For discoverers and escapees.

Zajímavý rum od Olivera, který dozrává v sudech po tequile. Jemný a příjemný. Dozrávání mu dává lehkou štiplavost do chutě i do vůně. Po napití máte chvilku pocit,že pijete něco jiného nežli rum. Příjemná změna oproti všem ostatním rumům. Za mě dobrý :-)

Also very classical stuff similar to cubaney 25. I enjoyed cubaney more.

When is rum fibished, it stay 8 months in barrel after tequila, which give to rum special taste of it.

Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this as part of a rare rum exchange. My intuition tells me that tequila isn't the best barrel to age rum in, but let's give it a shot.

The rum base seems to be decent, but as expected, I'm not a big fan of the tequila aging. Smells and tastes of molasses, tequila, oak, and tobacco leaf. Probably not a bad drink if you like tequila, but I'm more of a rum guy.
