Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Heavy stuff, with loads of flavours from both the distillate: grasses, seaspray, wild flowers and oilyness, as well as flavours from the maturation: dark fruits, wood, cedar, tobacco. Amazing stuff.
Très bon straight et très doux! Il coûte $20 à Punta Cana, attention de ne pas le payer $160 la bouteille comme un vendeur me l'a offert la première fois!
C'est toutefois un rum qui est doux comme de l'ea et qui a un bon petit goût de caramel brulé mais très subtile sans rentrer dans un rum très sucré! À goûter absolument! Un très bon rum pour s'initier dasn le rum straight
This rum has some character, it is not such an easy forgettable rum as many of its Dominican counterparts, but it is not something I would like to return to either. It is dry, bites on the nose a bit, then comes an oak scent, then comes its rather spicy taste with pronounced clove and herbs, some bitter notes, then a bite of alcohol in the end. Definitely not smooth as I would expect from 12y old as advertised on the bottle. Tastes like 3-4y old spiced rum. Not my idea of sipper, coke makes it quite ok, but there are much better choices for the money.
Bermudez multicolumn distillation, these rums are used also for other bottlings like Kirk&Sweeneys.
I would say it's ok, still a natural rum. The bottle is cheap and the rum is good.
Paid just 16€ for the bottle. You can sip it, you can mix it.
It's not rich and not complex, the taste is dominated by old cellar (white oak). It's a little bit like moldy old wood. It's not sweetened and that's not bad especially for the price.
Light but intense enough for sipping.
Smell: white oak, moldy old wood, some sour aromas (imagine an old whet cellar), vanilla, nuts
Taste: vanilla, some sweetness, moldy wood
Middle: old wood (wet cellar with sour notes), nuts, bitter grape seeds (tannins from the wood)
Finish: spice, oak (bitterness), vanilla, old sour cellar
This is a recogniseable and individual profile. The old wet cellar with moldy wood and sour notes is very present. The wood is quite intensive and provides some bitterness.
Value (15€): 3/5
This one was a bit too harsh for me. When just poured into a glass, the nose has a lot of alcohol. You'll need to let it breath for some time. After that it's ok, but nothing special. A small bit of vanilla and maybe caramel, but not enough for me. For the price it's an ok rum. But I prefer this one in a mix with coke zero and there are better priced rums for that.
Wurde mir damals vor langer Zeit auf den Domis empfohlen.
Heute weiss ich das es besseres gibt !
Nase ein wenig spritig, im Gaumen leichte Holznoten, ein wenig Karamell und Toffee.
Abgang, ja wo den ?
It was recommended me in the Dom Rep a long time ago.
Today I know that there is better things !
Nose a bit cleanser like, light wood notes on the palate, a little caramel and toffee.
Finish, yes where?
It was recommended when I travelled in Dom rep, but didn't enjoy it.
Clear colour, alcohol taste, Bad finish on the bottle... Didn't taste good neat and average in a Cuba libre
At first I felt only the alcohol also in taste and aroma, and regretted the price I paid for the bottle. However after a couple of try I found something interesting in the taste, although the taste of alcohol is still quite strong. It is at the border for me for sipping. The appearance is of a cheap cognac, screw cap among others, they probably should improve that.
Tastes and smells too chemical for me. Even coke can't hide the chemical/nailpolish taste. Was expecting much more from this rum as it has positive reviews. Most positive in my opinion is its nice bottle.
