Tasty, but not quite great
Column and alembic distillation, maturation in new French oak barrels and bourbon barrels. Sweet aroma: cherries in chocolate, cinnamon, cloves. Taste: honey, propolis, slightly ginger. Spicy, sweet finish, nuts, ginger, cinnamon and honey, figs.
Nose: like a real rum, some wood, do not feel any spices, pretty plain. Taste: soft, not spirit, good to sip in general. But almost no any aftertaste..
My second Takamaka, after the very forgettable St. Andre bottled with an ABV of 43%. Very light and sweet nose that at first smells mostly like Kirschwasser (eau-de-vie from cherries). After some time it opens up a little and I get some vanilla and oak enrobed in fudge. On the palate it gets a bit more backbone despite all the sugar added. Oak, spice, vanilla and stone fruit and a rather present alcohol.
Nothing bad about this rum but also pretty forgettable and way too sweet for my taste. Price/quality ratio seems very fair but only when you are into sweet(er) rums.
A spicy, light sweet smell, light sharp, some vanilla and coconut. The taste is rather light, some sweetness and alcohol, not much else. The finish is quite short.
The colour and the smell leads you to expect something rich, sweet, full of chocolate, caramel and vanilla, but the taste is completely diffident. It's smooth, bitter, woody and with a vague distant glimmer of molasses.
Heavy bottle with convex inscription Seychelles and dull label. Modest smell emitting resin. Downplayed taste of coffee and cane, little sour. This rum is dry, robust, caring at the finish. I did not become a fan of Takamaka, but it pleasantly warms.
Экзотика с берегов Индийского океана. Тяжёлая бутылка с рельефной надписью "Сейшеллы" и тусклой этикеткой произведена во Франции. Очень скромный аромат не обещает чудес. Вкус в индийском стиле с колеблющимися нюансами кофе, мелассы и фруктовой кислинки. Крепкий, сухой, тактичный.
