Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Purchased two bottles of Coloma 15 yr rum a while back, along with a bottle of the 8 yr. version. The 8 yr rum was quite a disappointment as I found it much too sweet. Finally opened up a bottle of Coloma 15 yr rum and the two are a world apart. The older version is definitely a drier rum even though a natural sweetness (similar to MGXO) is present and mixes well with a slight coffee flavour.
Not gonna re-buy unless I miss the extremely cool bottle and box design - but make no mistake, this is still an above-average, solid quality rum in my eyes. It just misses some rememberable character to me to return and purchase again which is somewhat expected for rums of its price level.
Très belle découverte, un vrai 15 ans avec une belle note de café. Vraiment meilleur que le 8 ans avec des notes plus subtiles et une très belle finale en bouche.
This rum also attracted me for a long time, especially I liked the beautiful decorated bottle.
Rum is delivered in a really nice square bottle with a wooden cap made of real cork. They did it well from the marketing point of view, but what is rum itself?
Aroma: Delicate, although slightly burns in the nose. Dried fruits, dark chocolate, vanilla. Coffee should be smelled there too (rum was aged in small barrels where a coffee liqueur had been stored), but I didn't notice it there.
Taste: Vanilla and woodiness of the barrel. The taste of the coffee can be smelled a bit, but not intensely. At first, the taste is a little harsher, but this pungency quickly fades. Bourbon barrels, on the other hand, taste quite intensively.
Conclusion: It's a pretty good rum, but I wasn't very interested in it. For this reason, I am not attracted to their 8-year-old version.
Overall rating: 7 points from 10
The smell is there, the profile is excellent but the taste itself is missing something. Tasting this after the Kirk and Sweeney 18 makes it taste bland. For the price you can get something better. I would put this in the same league as the Dos Maderas PX5+5, which is quite a bit cheaper.
V týdnu jsem na něj narazil na netu. Přečetl si jeho charakteristiku a v sobotu se náhodou dostal k jeho degustaci. Je podobný tak trochu La Hechiceira, jen více sladký a vonící po kávě. Tu vůni a chuť jsem po přečtení recenze čekal více intenzivní. Navíc mne malinko překvapila závěrečná ,,ostrost" na jazyku. Moje hodnocení je tedy, že jde o výborný rum, ale čekal jsem něco malinko jiného.
