Which is to be expected from a relatively young, cognac cask aged rum. Nose offers a little caramel and mango with plenty of wood spice, palette carries far more wood than one would expect for how old this rum actually is, and it borders on being astringent. There's a nice tropicality lingering underneath, but it's mostly wood. Finish offers a little more fruit, a little less wood, and more baking spice. A bit hot. A few flaws, but for $25, no complaints here!
Cognac masters have invested a lot in the creation: a loud aroma of French oak and sweet perfume. Taste sensations are very diverse: sweetness, bitterness, oily, astringency, acidity - everything is there, but immature, there is no depth, concentration. The effect of intoxication is heavy minor. Therefore, the second bottle can be bought if the price is lower than Havana club 7.
Reminds me of agricole rum, initial notes are spirit-y, also fruity with a flat aftertaste
Fľaša je veľmi prepracovaná z hrubého skla, s korkovým uzáverom. S kartónikom veľmi vkusná aj ako darček. (vidno, že ho plnia francúzi :))
Farba je zlato-karamelová. Vôňa je ostrá, ale nešpecifikovateľná.
Chuť je hrozienková, vanilková, dubová, mierne nasladlá. Záver príjemne zahreje a pocit pretrvá. Rum je bez pridávania cukru suchší a harmonicky. 42% určite poteší aj na zimnej lyžovačke. Kúpil som ho za 20€ a dali mi aj pohári grátis, tak celkovo ma príjemne prekvapil.
A 5.5 on my scale. Pleasant flavor straight. A bit of an after-burn. Mixed is pleasant too. Found in San Diego and it was a nice surprise that it was from France.
Interesting nose but on the younger has a lasting bite and not much depth in flavor. Full disclosure I an not a wine fan but typically enjoy Cognac occasionally and thought this could be a nice twist. Mixed the rum And it still has the burn and there is a heavy aftertaste that reminds me of a wine or flat beer. Cannot see it as a part of my bar...
