Tasty, but not quite great
Na samostatné pitie pre mňa určite nie. Do mix drinkov áno ale solo nie. Nasladlá vôňa ( banán), chuť karamel, čokoláda.
- vůně typická příjemná nasládlá Dominikánská republika, jemná, pomeranč, banán
- chuť nasládlá, opět jemná ořechy a rozinky
Zraje v sudech po ex bourbon
+ 3 měsíce ex sherry
+ 3 měsíce ex cognac
Aroma is weaker, taste is not complex with some added sugar. Aftertaste is short with some burning.
I Europe is now labeled 7y due to new norms.
I was expecting a subpar, boring rum, but it’s very good for the price. Spicy oak balanced with rich vanilla and baking spices. Solid
Bought a bottle of Bacoo 8 year old rum from DR with relatively high hopes since I scored the 12y Bacoo 9 but this 8y rum is far from the older sibling. Bottle and label design are identical. They are very nice for a sub $30 rum. Color is surprisingly dark for an 8y rum, so coloring is most likely being used. Nose reveals a faint vanilla and butterscotch, but you have to pay attention or you will miss it. Palate and afterburn is absolutely nothing! Very disappointing indeed. The 8y Bacoo is like a watered down version of something with a sliver of potential. 12y Bacoo 9 versus 8y Bacoo struggles to earn a 6.
