Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Und das ist alles was man(n) wissen muss. Sehr gelungener Mix aus Whiskey und Rum - sehr gut geeignet für Kenner die auf beiden Wegen wandeln 😉
I bought this and the Bayou Select - both were similarly priced (or here in UK there was a £3 difference). But the difference is huge.
The nose of the two is quite similar. A rather restrained, dry cane fruit. But it is the body where there is a big difference. There is a rich, sweet depth of fruit that the Select doesn't quite have. Gentle 40% alcohol leads to a medium length, dry finish with an appealing gentle oakiness.
I can't help but think that this would be better bottled at 45% like many an American whiskey is.
But the test of a rum.....would I buy it again? With this one, while I wouldn't class it as one of my favourites, I probably would. Variety being the spice of life.
EDIT - I've come back to this 6 weeks after opening the bottle. Upped from a 7 to an 8. It might not be for purists, but I like it. The nose has the traits that you would expect from cane, and this is carried on to the front pallet. But then the oak takes over, and TBH it masks some of the delicacy of the cane. As my preferred style is a nice oaky molasses based rum, I think the strong oak enhances the rum. I have to say that I'm very much enjoying, and looking at the price, I think I will definitely be getting more. Still wish it would be stronger!!
I had been skeptical that a rum from the mainland US of A could be a sipper -wrong! This is nice stuff with a faint aroma of pineapple and other tropical notes and a decent dry bite with a dry finish.
Dette var rom nr. 2 til en dejlig aften sammen med Mads Heitmann fra romhatten.dk
En dejlig rom hvor der er tydelige noter af sukkerrør og vanilje.
Almost carrot in color. Sweet banana, vanilla, fruits on the nose. Smoky oak, vanilla, tobacco on palate. Very nice alcohol taste with oaky and leathery after taste that lingers. My favorites.
Hmm,trochu mnie zaskoczył,3 lata starzenia w beczkach po red california wine, kolor ciemnozloty idacy w rubin, nos mocno debowy i nuty winne,smak blizszy bourbona niz rumu, jest to dobry alkohol, gęsty, pijalny ale nie wpisuje się w profil rumowy tylko bourbonowy
i was quite curious, how this american rum will taste and i was not disappointed. tastes a little different, reminded me a bit of an agricole. maybe need a few more glasses to evaluate it, but the first impression was really good. i think, i like it...
