First surinamese rum, was very smooth and not very strong in the end. Was best by itself and not mixed with Cola
I first tasted Borgoe Extra back in 2005 in the middle of the rainforest in Suriname. I assumed it was a very high-end, top-shelf rum because it was smoother than any other rum I'd tasted. When we asked our guide to bring us some more and asked him how much it cost, he told us it was very expensive -- a whopping $6 per (750 ml) bottle! I was stunned and wanted to buy cases of it, but they would not allow it to go through customs for some reason.
I do still wish I could buy it here in the USA. I'm sure it costs much more now, but undoubtedly worth every penny!
Sweet and soft taste , elegant, caramel/butterscotch, vanilla, relatively long finish. One of my all time favorites!
Good balanced rum, no alcohol burn, and many notes are presents especially wood and caramel. It looks like Diplomatico Mantuano, but less sweet and more expressive. Borgoe is a bit less soft.
It's an "ok"-rum for me, but Borgoe has better rums to offer...
Rhum de mélasse du Suriname. Vieillissement en fût de chêne ayant contenu du bourbon. Double filtration. Titre 40°.
Présentation : quelconque et bouchon à vis. Belle couleur ambrée.
Odeur : subtile mais agréable, sucrée.
Goût : pas mal, attaque douce avec un petit goût de toffee ensuite l'alcool reprend le dessus.
Finale : néant.
Acheté faute de trouver le Borgoe 8 ans pour +/- 10€ les 70cl, ce rhum me rappelle le chairman's reserve de Ste Lucie. Il n'est pas "amélioré" à coup de sucre. Quelconque pur, il devrait convenir en cocktails.

4 **** as a standalone
You drink it and it feels like drinking water. Then the slightly sweet taste comes with an alcohol kick which warms your insides as a cheap drink would do. Kind of Captain Morgan feel, but cheaper. Not worth it for a straight drink. Might be ok for a cocktail... I guess....?
7******* for cocktails
Works great on a Grog. It really sucks as a standalone, but is indeed good for cocktails!
