Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
musim povedat ze tento rum je doteraz mojim najvacsim prekvapenim. pravdu povediac ma najprv zaujala flaska lebo som si ju chcel nechat ako dekanter (preto su na foto odlepene nalepky), ale cim viac som o tomto rume cital tym viac som bol zvedavy. A musim povedat ze je to uplna bomba. najlesie vonajuci rum aky som doteraz skusal 11 z 10 za vonu :-). chut je vyborna, prijemny sladsi nastup, citim vanilku, jemne drevo, prijemne koreniste. super vyvazene. aj ked je sladsi nastup nieje to celkovo sladky rum, sladky je len nastup, ale sladkost sa postupne vytraca. telo dost vyrazne a prekvapivo jemny dozvuk s jemnym zahriatim. fantazia. nedam 10/10 len preto urcite existuje nieco co mi bude este viac chutit. ale toto je u mna v TOP 3. davam 9,6/10
It is difficult to criticize a christmas gift. I was glad to have an oportunity to taste it. But never bought it for myself. Too much alcohol burn.
Sugar: Estimated at 15 GPL. First of all this rum has a great chestnut colour and a stylish bottle. It tastes like a whiskey. Not sure if that's from the American Oak barrels this was aged in but I think that's a good enough assumption. It has a sharp alcohol nose to it and a sharp taste to match. Burnt Oak, Vanilla, Pepper, and raisins are the dominant tastes for me. It's balanced but sharp, and you definitely have to let this rum air out or add a couple drops of water as it tastes better. It's got a long burn on the end....pepper. It's overpriced in Canada at $100, but I got it today on sale for $80 and after several tastings, I think that I paid too much. If you like whiskey then you will like this rum.
Light nose with vanilla, oak and raisins. On the palate there is also a hint of orange but dried fruits are prominent with a little pepper. It is also a tad harsh and for me that is a blessing (of sorts) as it gets the attention away from the added sugar; not overly sweet but I have my doubts about calling it semi-dry.
Not really a pleasant sip, and I don't get it's pricetag (€40-50), so all in all an overpriced rum that needs the sugar to get the worst off of its sharp edges. Not something to look for but it will do if nothing else is available. At €15-20 it would be more in line with its profile and the flaws would be forgivable but alas...
An eye catcher in the bottle for sure. Thankfully, it doesn't disappoint you once poured in the glass. A simple smooth swirl of the glass is all it takes to reveal the character of this fine rum. Nice sweet aroma on the nose, fairly tasty in the mouth not fully bodied and oily on the throat though, hence a 7.
A rum everyone should definitely try at least once and I will personally be more than happy to enjoy again with good company if given the chance.
A very smooth semi-sweet rum which smells and tastes of toasted oak, almonds, and spice.
Very nice rum from start to finish. Dark fruits on the nose, no burn and finishes with a hint of vanilla and cherries. Smooth and tasty.
It is 40%ABV solera aged for 10-15 years in American oak barrels. This should be Relicario's top of the range.
Bottle: Very nice thick glass, square, closed with a wooden screw cap. It comes in a nice tube.
Colour: Dark amber.
Aroma: It is sweet, caramel. There is also vanilla, coconut, sherry, raisins and a wooden white wine barrel.
Taste: Typical of Dominican rums. It is sweetish with some burning on the palate. Vanilla, raisins, caramel, wood and smoke can be detected in the taste.
Conclusion: Quite good, but not an exceptional rum in terms of taste. It is similar in taste to the rums from Oliver or it remained me Dos Maderas 5+5 a little.
I was excited when I first picked this one up. The large container with the solid wood lid was impressive, as was the bottle with wood cap and deep reddish brown hue. The taste was fruity and sweet, reminding me most of cherry to cherry cream. There was a bit of toffee and caramel, and a woodiness as well. Tried with an ice cube kind of washed out the sweetness. Not as wonderful as the presentation suggested but still and overall tasty rum.
Definitely one of the good Dominica rums, medium sweet. What i didn't really like was the slightly increased alcohol burn, a little too much for my taste.
