Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I tasted this with the Parce 8-year, which I really liked, and this was slightly better. This seemed to have a little more sweetness and spice to it.
Tastes and smells of oak, molasses, with a hint of bourbon. Like the 8 year, I like that this is somewhat sweet, unlike many other bourbon aged rums.
This is a fantastic rum, sufficiently sweet in the mid-palate and a slightly smokey and bourbonesque afterburn. There is a lot going on here. While it is a bit frivolous to mix this rum with anything, I would recommend making a Cuba Libre with it. The fact that it's not very sweet and has a lovely hint of vanilla made it the best Cuba Libre I've ever had.
Slight hint of sweetness on the nose, a hint of citrus aND a tinge of jammy raisin. Nice mouth even a bit silky. Light on the esters. On the finish has a bit of bitter or I would have given it an 8. Worth the space on your shelf.
Notes of cinnamon, tobacco, caramel, toffee, and the oak of the barrel. You get a little bit of bourbon at the end of the finish. Mildly complex, but very smooth. It has little burn but seems to well balanced. It is a worthy purchase.
A few days after I first opened this bottle, the rum’s flavors became more prevalent. I don’t know if the bottle was cold and need to warm up but this rum is probably the best rum in my opinion under $100. Very smooth sipper, well balanced, and freaking delicious.
Beautiful Columbian rum. Dark toffee notes with burnt caramel.
Great toasty finish with meandering notes of tobbaco, nuts, and mocha
Has a bit of a soured, drier oak quality (even though its somewhat sweet). Its column-still rum, making it rather light with a thin mouthfeel. It feels a bit unbalanced on the palate as well, maybe too much time in oak... Not to mention, asking price is at least $60 (got this for $40 on sale). There are many other rums I'd rather buy, honestly.
At first I got hints of cinnamon and that switched to honey, vanilla and caramel.
Smooth with a nice long finish. I will really enjoy sipping this one.
Nosing the glass after letting it sit for a while I smell some tobacco.
This rum and it's younger brother suddenly appeared at a Total Wine 50 miles away from me. After reading all of these reviews, I had my doubts about buying a bottle based upon a few references to Jack Daniels barrel aging. Then I found myself in that area and figured WTF, it's only $66 US. But both were in some very weird gift boxes with poorly made tops. I clipped out the main panels on this one and tried to enclose them here. Oh well.
No point in me stating notes as others have already repeated what is on the label. It is very smooth and slightly spicy. It started out as a high 7 in my book. Then after a few trials, it moved up into my middle 8 ratings. At more than $60, I always expect results like this and this one did not disappoint me. Somehow, the notes from the Jack Daniels barrels are barely discernible.
