Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Considering its price, this is really very good. It’s not quite as good as the Captain Kidd 30 (actually up to 38 year old), but then that costs at least 4 times more. This tastes like a fine rum from the Caribbean. Very smooth, just the right amount of sweetness and lots of molasses. Beautiful on the nose - almost like an ideal rum. Hints of orange. A lovely aftertaste. The more I drink it the more I like it. Highly recommended!
Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this with me as part of a rare rum tasting (I can't get this in the US).
Smells and tastes of molasses, light spice, orange, and oak. Very lightly sweet. Not a bad rum at all.
Rum tasting with my good old buddy in Amsterdam during the global lockdown continued onwards with Arehucas 18y. Very nice and unique bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Vanilla, orange and mild oak to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Super short and nondescript ending. Good but far from great.
Nice balanced sweet nose of cherries and brown sugar. Soft but no hints of the butter or leather of the Carta Oro. Chocolate, almost creamy taste. I wouldn’t say hugely complex, but I actually like that when sitting back and sipping for a while - it doesn’t make me think a lot, just enjoy. Amazing finish gets a little sweeter as it lingers. Really pleasant overall, surprising how much I like it, worth a try if you haven't yet.
With a tongue dip I find out that it is not a sweet rhum, it's pungent in a good way and perfectlý in line with my most favuored taste.
I took me a while to rate it. To understand it. To grab this honey background, this specific after taste. To appreciate its smoothnes. It's not perfect, but surely worth trying. Personally I find 7 años similarary good as this 18 años... But still worth trying
Bought two locally for 25euros, so then it's really a bargain. But even at home this bottle only costs around 45-50 euros and stays a very good value for money option.
