Had just a sample for the tasting so this is just a first impression, but I don’t think that I will dig deeper into it.
The Ron Roble brand hails from Venezuela and is produced by Rones de Caribe in their distillery near Caracas.
Their Master Distiller Giorgio Melis, is heavily experienced with over 50 years in the drinks industry.
It’s produced from molasses from locally grown sugar cane. The molasses is distilled in a 5 Column Still before aged for 8 to 12 years in 220 litre ex-bourbon oak barrels.
The aroma is dominated by vanilla but in the end notes of glue comes through. In mouth and palate there’s also caramel and almonds together with the vanilla but the glue taste has almost fade-away. The rather short finish tastes about the same. Positive is that it’s not overly sweetened, but overall I think it’s too bland.
Picture: My emptied sample.

I'm a huge fan of Venezuelan rums, but this one is a bit bland in comparison to others.

Smells and tastes of oak, cocoa, almonds, and caramel. A bit on the dry side, and somewhat plain. Could use a little spice or something to add to the flavor. If you don't like additives, I recommend the Santa Teresa 1796 Venezuelan, which is a fantastic rum without a lot of 'extras'.

I just had a sampel of this rum, so this is only my first impression.

Nose: very much glue and some vanilla.
Palate: more vanilla and caramel and a little bit less glue. I can also taste some pepper.
Finish: pretty long aftertaste with taste of nuts.

All in all its a pretty good rum. Nothing wrong with it.

Trevlig färg. Väldigt spritig smak, påminner om billig tysk sprit. inget för mig.

Very nice light caramel color. Cocoa, oak, and caramel on the nose and the tongue. Smooth finish. It is very sweet and could use something to tone down the sweetness. Pretty solid rum but seems unfinished.

The first bite of aroma is right out of the bottle, but it opens up and evens out nicely. I smell light vanilla, caramel/molasses. Taste is fleeting butter & vanilla.

Another sample in this quarterly batch that is drinkable but nothing memorable. Medium dark color, taste is OK but simple, and a little bit of length on the finish.

Helt OK. Smakar vanilj och fat, doftar detsamma men även en hint av aceton. För mild men bra sötma: inte så överdrivet.

I consider this a middle of the road rum better suited as a mixer. Light gold color taste reminiscent of a young 3-5 year aged rum. I’m a big fan of Panamanian rums but not this one. Too much alcohol on the nose and throat like a Puerto Rican rum.

Chocolate , sweetnes and dry .

I wonder with Venezuela if this is sweetened but the lovely notes of typical chocolate dryness are delicious. On reading the fat rum pirates hydrometer test it came in at 19gl wow pure added caramel sugar .

Pecan nuts , cocoa and oak smokiness .
