I found that this rum has a smoky flavor that reminded me of scotch whiskey. It has a very clean finish and didn't burn add it went down. I have recommended this rum to the CEO of my company and he was impressed with it.
Absolutely the best most complex and flavorful rum I have ever tasted. My career professional whisky tasting expert brother took one sip and ordered 3 bottles...
Wonderful vanilla and caramel aroma in the bottle. Translates well in the flavor. As it hits the tongue one is awash in a complex series of flavors. Some sweetness but not even close to be overwhelming. Very smooth. No burn. Just a nice lingering warmth fading slowly revealing a vanilla and oak aftertaste. Definitely a sipping rum. I prefer this straight up. I think even on the rocks would diminish this fine rum.
Dark amber, intense colour, with hints of red.
Rich syrupy legs.
Intense and complex nose.
Nuts, caramel, dried fruits, chocolate and vanilla.
Expressive nose, well integrated alcohol and good quality of aromas.
Strong and very sugar concentration
Syrupy body with a dry minerality and a winey layer.
Powerful on palate yet elegant and dry.
Flavour reflects the nose.
Refined and well-balanced flavours, alcohol is not aggressive.
It does have a lot of smokiness to it for a rum but still has some of that burnt sugar sweetness. To me this rum has a very distinct flavor and is one of my favorites so far for a sipping rum.
This is a dark coloured Mexican rum that needs a bit of time to breathe. Peppery and spicy flavours greet the nose, and the 20 year ageing gives it a smooth finish. You may not like the first sip, as it will surely surprise you, but give this rum time, and it's quality will shine through. It also has one of the best looking bottles you can buy.
At $50 CAD a bottle, it a steal. My first impression was tequila. It was only subtle, but it caught me off guard. It took some time with it... and as it turns out, I am a big fan. Was my first Mexican rum, but opened my eyes to exploring more. Beautiful dark colour and a unique flavour that I truly enjoy. Hope I can find it when I go looking again!
I see some low ratings of this rum and I have to disagree. While it may not be the best it's a solid performer. Well balanced, polished finish, amazing bottle.
