Poor ratings, but I really liked it. Good mixture of spice and smooth, nice tangy finish. Best part for me is the chocolate taste about mod way through. Give it a try!

I went to my favorite Tiki Bar called Latitude 29 by Beachbum Berry this evening to sample one of two rums that are mainly available in Texas. I sampled this one neat as well as another one.

This one is a staple mixer in Latitude 29 and now I can see why. It is definitely on the dry side with just the right amount of sweetness. I sipped mine neat and this one would work as well on the rocks or as a mixer. As we all know, one cannot judge a rum from just one glass alone since the flavors change based upon remaining volume in the bottle.

Update August 2, 2018: It has taken me four months to finally get my hands on a couple of my own bottles. At $42 each, the price may seem high for 750 ml, but it is bottled at 90 proof. The wait has been worth it and my original rating stands at a 7. This is what pure rum should taste like and with no charred oak flavors from barrels. Cheers to Don Pancho!

A cheap rum that charges a premium price not acceptable in the UK market as we have so many alternatives

For those unaware, Caña Brava has been discontinued since 2019. But since it's by the legendary Don Pancho Fernandez, and this would probably be cheaper than finding a bottle of Don Pancho Origenes, I made a mission to track it down at a store that still had a few in stock.

The result was... okay. It's a decent Cuban-style aged rum. Good for sipping or mixing. Bit of spice, bit of cocoa flavor, but not some kind of insane revolution. Certainly not knock-your-socks-off or hunt-down-every-last-bottle-you-can-find good.

Nose of cane juice a bit grassy with st lucia like taste, metallic finish otherwise would be +2

Not much on the nose. Taste reasonable - a bit of cocoa and bitter fruitiness there. Decent, lingering aftertaste.

Light amber colour, nice molasses and caramel aroma. Smooth to sip at first with loads of spice and nutmeg flavour, but goes a bit too harsh at the end.

Not bad, not bad, a good one on the list, and holds my attention.

N- Marshmarrow, then sweaty like an old gym shoe, still with plenty of edgy spirit despite aged for 7 years. Subtle vanilla and young mango with green tinge, some chocolate, some wood and well behave. Recognizable aroma and no excessive sugar knocking around. But trusted that each batches of this release could varied greatly, and happened we have the decent one. (81/17)

P- Well lifting spicy notes under the overlaying sweetness, canned fruit, more expressive and fuller then nose would suggest, light with lingering sour citrus. (83/18)

F- Short-medium, spirit coat, acceptable semi sweet fruit, subtle and nothing unpleasant. (81/17)

B/B- 83/18

Weighted Rate- 70pt
— at The Rum Bar KL.

Lacking flavour and body for a rum of this age. Light in colour with a medium flavour of alcohol with little depth.
