Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
First nose from the bottle reveals sweet vanilla and raisins. Very impressive oak and sherry notes as well. A very soft initial nose.
A very smooth dark amber color in the glass. Fast running, and medium to thin legs.
In the glass, a powerful oak nose with a hint of sherry. Vanilla, raisins and a hint of coffee.
The tast is initially a slow burned or roasted wood. Not overly sweet taste of vanilla moves to the back edge of the tongue, and lasts a fair time. There is a definite stronger hit from the alcohol, due to the 42% vol, but defiantly not unpleasant in any way. In my opinion it gives it just that edge, which sets it apart from the other rums int the Ron Quorhum family.
When the initial hit dies down, it leaves you with the most wonderful, and longlasting aftertaste, of buttery smooth dried fruit, vanilla and sherry. The sherry is a wonderful surprise, which comes through, at a very late stage, but the way the tast just keeps on expanding and evolving is quite exciting.
My only regret is that I only bought one bottle.
Bottled in 2018, bottle nr.951 from 4000. Blender-Nancy G.de Blanck. Thank you.
As a fan of QRM I appreciate extra sherry taste. It may have some additives but in this case I don’t care because it is good.
The sherry is already little presented in aroma. First taste is smooth, warm, sweeter (but not too much) balanced with fruit and oak tones. Sherry tones nicely presented and ended in long aftertaste.
More different from standard QRM30 than the Oporto version, but is question, if the sherry finish is worth the 50% higher price :-(
Jeszcze niedawno można go kupić tylko w jednym miejscu - lotnisko Billund w Danii. Teraz już widzę, że powoli się rozprzestrzenia na inne miejsca. Tak czy inaczej już samo to robi z tej butelki coś wyjątkowego, rzadkiego. Zapach po otwarciu butelki nie jest zbyt intensywny, ale przyjemny. Smak delikatny, jednolity, z czasem uwalnia więcej walorów. Baaaardzo łagodny posmak. Dobry, poprawny, aczkolwiek brakuje mu czegoś wyjątkowego jak na 30-letni rum.
The Ron Quorhum 30 Travel Edition is a special unicorn with it only being available in Billund Airport. I happened to pass through the airport on the way to London, so of course i had to pick up a bottle.
Nose: Oak, toffee, raisin and apricot
Taste: Dried fruits, oak, toffee and a clear taste of citrus in the background of it all
Overall: This is not much different from the regular QRM 30, perhaps a tad more toffee and citrus, but not a overwhelming change of pace. With that said, should you find yourself in Billund, then you should get a travel-bottle.
Colour is nice dark.
Smell is very lovely.
Taste is very good.
Aftertaste is very very long and fantastic.
Bought at Billund Airport Denmark for 107 $
Just my rum a selten 9 given by me .......
Being a courious little rum soul, I have made a direct sip-comparison with "Baoruco 21y", a fantastic rum that I consider to be a benchmark of how good quality sherry barrel rum should be like:
• "Baoruco 21" has more of a walnut feel (kinda like "Dictador 12y", but better), is definitely less sweet (but still relatively sweet), definitely more rounded. Sherry tones are IMO more apparent.
• "QRM" is definitely stronger, more (but not too overly) ethanolish, with a hint of sherry in the background, along with (overriped?) fruits, not so rounded - relatively spicy and burny (but not too much to ruin the whole taste). A very good (yet not fantastic) rum.
In both cases palate quite follows the nose.
Overall it did remind me "Angostura No. 1 Sherry Cask" the most.
"QRM" is most expensive of the abovementioned - purchased with two accompanying glasses (shit paper packaging, cool glasses). The rum bottle design is nothing special so I didn't mind at all opening it.
Overall so far 7/10 with a typical chance to add up (or go down) a bit by the end of the bottle :)
/ Actually more like 6.5/10 w/o recommendation from my side as somewhat too expensive for flavor received; I also found nothing truly unique and special on this rum (maybe apart from a pair of very nice rum cups)
Aroma: Staré zatuchlé dřevo, karamel, skořice. Vůně je dosti zastřená.
Chuť: Kořenitě větrová, skořicově sladká.
Dozvuk: Sladký, rozinkový, trpké sherry. Poměrně krátký.

O fous lepší než přeslazené Oporto. Klasicky ovíněná Dominika - průměr.
