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.

Bit sweet taste, light fruity feeling like, not much cherry really. Smell good.

Sweet and floral aroma.
Taste is sweet with strong hints of agricole, fruit brandy and maybe some sweetener.
Sadly weak finish

This is a sherry cask finish but it feels like there were some addition to it. It’s a bit sugary and the sherry is too much in your face. Still, I quite enjoy it but it lacks debt and is more in your face than any other thing. I sip all my rums neat so no mixing for me.

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.

Just like the normal Emperor with a touch of Sherry on the nose and on the tongue. In my opinion, it's not as good as the Abuelo, and nowhere near as good as the Dos Maderas 5 5.

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.

Bought a bottle of the Emperor Sherry Finish while vacationing at Martinique. Very nice old school bottle and label design. Very dry Rhum notes followed by grass, flowers and way too much sherry flavors to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end.

Ce rhum aurait pu être original avec un goût moins marqué sur la cerise, doit se boire avec de la glace pour diminuer l'intensité. Un verre par semaine pas plus...
