I was finally able to get a bottle of this recently while in England since it’s impossible to find in the States and I’m happy to report it’s as great as I imagined. Each time I try it I pick up something new in the flavor profile. I really wished I bought more than one bottle!
barva : jantar
vune vanilka, typicky barbados
chut: 46% je v chuti akorat, plné tělo,lehká sladkost, po madeire
zaver : tmavé ovoce a dřevitost, vyrazně lepší než 10tka
koupit ano z 50%
Alcohol 46 %
Aroma is nice full of forest fruits. Taste is sweet (but no added sugar) with long and complex aftertaste. Very good rum.
Bought me 2*3cl sample of this great rum from a member in a Swedish rum group.
This Limited Edition of The Real McCoy, aged for 12 Years, are a blend of Pot and Column still rum. This version is released at ABV 46% instead of 40% for the original. Another difference compared to the original is that this Ltd Ed is a mix of rum aged in ex-bourbon casks (90%) and ex-Madeira casks (10%) while the original only were aged in ex-bourbon casks.
The nose is quite intense, floral and balanced with a little sweetness. I recognize vanilla, fruits, toffee and some hints of coconut.
In mouth and palate it’s still intense but also spicy and woody. I recognize pepper, ginger and a little bitterness.
The finish is rather long and spicy and I also recognize hints of citrus.
Overall a very intense, rich and well balanced rum.
Picture: My emptied samples poured in a glass.
even heavier molasses and syrup flavors up front than the 5, a long burn on the back. with a chew, it lights up the cheeks. less oily than the 5
- vůně velmi příjemná, Barbadoská, nasládlá, ovoce, koření
- chuť velmi jemná, nasládlá, spousta ovoce, koření
This is a rougher type of rum from Barbados from the famous Foursquare distillery at 40% strength. The rum was aged for 12 years in oak bourbon barrels.
Bottle: Classic whiskey shape
Colour: Dark Amber
Nose: Intense and very pleasantly sweetish. Aromas of caramel, baked apples with lemon, vanilla, spices (cloves, pepper) and later oak wood wafted from the glass.
Taste: Dry and harsh at first, then mellowing on the palate. After sipping, I smelled bitter cocoa, wood and pepper. The bitterness is noticeable, but surprisingly not unpleasant.
Finish: Medium to long.
Summary: The product is more suitable for lovers of drier rums. I guess my earlier preference for sweeter types is starting to change, but I really enjoyed this rum. The main characteristics are: sweet aroma, dry and smooth taste.
Overall rating: 8.5 out of 10
