Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
Vanilla and oak. Taste is lightly sweet with hints of wood. After taste is pleasant and bittery.
Overall greatly ballanced rum.
Not like the sweet heavy cuban rums, Ron Vacilon is a light fresh rum. It has a light extremely pleasant aroma, light-goldish color a sweet nose full of vanilla witha long perfect afterburn.
A bit of citrus, smooth leathery nose, it is best experienced first hand. Quite a unique experience, on par with the best of them (Havana Club Maximo, Santiago Isla del Tesoro).
It is rare to come by Cuban rums aged a quarter century!
Very fruity complex dark rum which has its color from the barrel only and not from added sugar. Recommended!
