Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Its really funny to read reviews here which says, it taste like "cherry". No, it doesnt. If you write THIS taste like cherry and its sweet, then you didnt drink this. This is sherry no cherry. Sherry is type of wine.
This actually tastes more like a brandy. If you know how Ararat 10yo or Metaxa 12* tastes, then this is pretty close to it. Sherry taste is very intesive in this rum, especialy in the aftertaste. If you like dry rums and brandy, this one is recommended for you. If you dont, then stay as far away as you can.
Got this 5cl sample from the RR Tasting Club.
The Emperor Sherry finished Rum is a a blend of aged rum made from fresh sugar cane juice (40%) and molasses (60%). This amber colored rum is aged in American and French oak barrels for 5-12 years whereafter it’s given a 6-month finish in sherry casks before bottled.
The aromas is vegetal, flowery and fruity with hints of spices.
The taste is sweet and woody with hints of caramel, Sherry, vanilla, fruits, almonds and pepper.
The medium long finish tastes about same, but also with smoky hints.
Overall it’s quite alike the Heritage version, but with Sherry hints of course.
For me it’s too sweet and I characterize it as a rum mostly belonging to the Spanish style.
Picture: My emptied sample with the poured glass.
Sweet and floral aroma.
Taste is sweet with strong hints of agricole, fruit brandy and maybe some sweetener.
Sadly weak finish
It is a blend of rums from Mauritius with a maturation period of up to 12 years (first barrels of bourbon and then of sherry wine). Special ratio: 60% molasses rum and 40% is agricole from juice, so I was mainly curious about the agricole ingredient.
The bottle has a classic chubby shape - I like that. The color of the rum is rather lighter (light amber) with a slight reddish tinge.
The scent is not very intense, but it is very pleasant. The scent smells of vanilla, sherry, overripe tropical fruits, cherries, cloves and also a little stale wood and agricole grass.
For the first time, I felt intense unsweetened Czech rum pralines in the taste. The taste is weaker in spirits, generally thinner and also slightly sweet. On the palate you can smell the most sherry, vanilla, cloves, stale wood and again overripe to fermented fruit (grapes and cherries). The ending is slightly bitter, but it's not unpleasant.
The smell of this rum is more pleasant than the taste, but the longer I drank it, the more I enjoyed it. It's probably not for the whole bottle, but it's definitely worth tasting.
Overall rating: 7.5 out of 10
Tenhle rum mě moc nenadchl. Možná to je tím, že je namíchán z agricolu, ale přišel mi takový řídký a dost lihový. Hezká lahev to bohužel nezachrání.
Sometimes I pull the trigger to get some new rum that I have not tasted before, and unfortunately with emperor sherry all I can say is that was a bad investment. It pretends to have some rich flavour but at the same time it doesnt, I would say it is shallow and blank, sweet, and has nothing to persuade me for future come back.
Za mě celkem překvapení, vůně chuť nasládlost na mě docela zafungovala, rum mi sice přijde konzistencí řidší než ostatní rumy, ale i tak příjemné překvapení, zajímavej rum.
Con razón el jerez o la manzanilla la tomo tan de tanto en tanto.....en nariz tiene un suave olor a madera y ya en boca es muy agradable y tenue pero en cuanto está en garganta salen los 40 grados, me desagrada que se note al final, son un montón de tonos la mayoría agradables igual que con la manzanilla o el jerez pero acaba saliendo el alcohol, no se si una vez abierta la botella y respire mejorará, me gusta más el Heritage de color azul la caja, este han sido sobre los 25€ el otro creo que fueron sobre 20, desde luego no está entre mis favoritos.
