Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This was the last bottle of the tasting and damn, how did it deliver. Whoever created this can piss in my face any day.
Vanille and raisins on the nose.
The taste is full of nuts and honey. It is very deep and rich. The finish is sweet and very pleasant. I really enjoy this one.
Ve vůni je cítit ovoce a čokoláda. V chuti lze rozeznat tóny cherry a čokoláda. Vzhledem k voltazi závěr nevýrazný.
Aroma is nice and full of chocolate. Taste is sweeter with honey, fruits and again a bit of chocolate and cherry on palate in aftertaste.
Rum je vo veľmi peknej flaši. Je príjemne sladký cítim v nom med, nugát, vanilku a nejaké ovocie. Príjemný ale nie veľmi zapamätatelný rum.
My credentials - I am a qualified chef, so can claim some expertise in terms of tasting capability. Got into rums about 2 years ago during the COVID lockdowns, with a couple of buddies enjoying rooftop rum nights in Singapore, each bringing a bottle between $100 and $200. Our preferences as a group have changed somewhat during this time, moving away from the sweeter flavoured rums to more complex, layered styles.
My thoughts on the Rum Nation Guatemala XO 20th Anniversary:
Not a bad rum, enjoyable, although rather bland tasting, not a lot going on to differentiate itself from other rums - slight hint of honey, slightly astringent, no oak or otherwise prominent flavours I have experienced in other rums, such as coffee, banana, pineapple, molasses, cotton candy. Yet also nothing there to particularly dislike either. Just a decent easy-sipper.
More marketing and pricing than anything really outstanding in terms of quality flavour in my view, yet the bottle probably makes for a nice gift. Far better rums out there for 30-60% less investment.
