Erster eindruck: wässrigen Geschmack, flach. Danach starke Holznote. Nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht mehr...

Not much rum taste, a touch of vanilla and rum alongside harsh vodka.

This smells and tastes as Cihuatán Nikté in half strength. Still very good one.

Cihuatan Nikté Limited Edition rum

Cihuatan Nikté Limited Edition review posted 1 hour ago by Worty 🇨🇿 | 53 ratings

This rum is supposed to be "floral". In my tasting experience there was a strong smell of marzipan, bananas, honey and sherry with some spice behind. Sweet, silk smooth scent. I was amazed.

In taste there was all flavors mentioned above with added spicy on tongue, that bites you a bit and a little of smoke. At 47,5 ABV its super smooth with warmth and long lasting finish. Rum is sweet, but well balanced thanks to its increased strength. This one is obviously an original piece in flavor field. Worth a try. Complex smell and taste on sweet side. This one hits my personal taste.

Drier version of reserva exclusiva. Its still sweet, but not so much. Just small differences.

Bacardi 8 rum

Bacardi 8 review posted 2 hours ago by Alan 🇧🇪 | 12 ratings

The nose is very harsh, and so is the initial taste. Once you get over the solvent flavors, there is a nice butterscotch back flavor. I wouldn't buy this for sipping, but it might make a nice mixed drink

Villa Rica 23-Year rum

Villa Rica 23-Year review posted 2 hours ago by O'Neill 🇨🇿 | 25 ratings

Aroma of this rum is very pleasant without disturbing smell of alcohol. Taste is very light with strong tones of wood. My first mexican rum, which surely wasn't disappointment. Not top for me personally, but not bad choice at all.

Plantation XO 20th Anniversary rum

Plantation XO 20th Anniversary review posted 3 hours ago by New Province 🇳🇱 | 12 ratings

Okay, not my first review - won't be my last. Let's get into it:

1. The package is good, not exceptional but good. The bottle looks great, I personally cut the straw away so I do not lose my grip on the bottle but you do you.

2. The smell, like walking in the caramel-vanilla factory. It's really good and much better than anything Cuban I have had.

3. The taste, well let me explain how I drink it first. So I opened the bottle, poured me-self a shot in a cognac glass (because I shall not be drinking capt'n rum in a crew-glass piece of thumbler filth). Now, I let the rum rest, like a baby, it will rest for 10 minutes. Then I take my sip and I play with the rum in the fore side of the mouth so the sweetness can do it's work on the proper side of the tongue. Then I let it go down the throat. In this fashion you will experience a very mild burn and an after taste of sweet caramel vanilla dripping on the tongue warming it with some alcohol. The taste itself is good and better than anything Cuban I have tasted.

HOW NOT TO DRINK IT:
In a thumbler with ice and drinking it like water. That is just burn-burn and it will taste wrong and I think thats where some bad reviews came from - they just drink it like its lemonade but remember: IT'S RUM FIT FOR A CAPTAIN.

So keep in mind: When you drink this rum, drink it properly, it's a slow-drink. Like you'd be arguing who gets what loot with your quartermaster and navigator.

Lightly coloured, some oak and tropical fruit on the nose, grassy and little hot on the palate. Lacks complexity and richness for me.

Lots of smoke. Lots of wood. Peppery and somewhat spiced. Grassy.

Strong coconut tones in aroma. Start of the taste is honey like, but after that comes avalanche of warm feeling on tongue. Definitely not rum for me, but still interesting experience.

Belle senteur, quand on le prend en bouche, il brûle. Je n'avait pas regarder qu'il était à 65% ABV. Ce rhum a une belle finale.

Started the night with this one, proved to be a very good choice. Had it with one rock, and without as well. Warm, crisp, moderately sweet. A must

Had this one at the end of the night, very sharp, though this is probably influenced by having had a sweet and very smooth rum before. Perhaps best mixed. Worth a try

Had this rum with a nice Casdagli cigar. Sweet, easy on the throat, very fine rum! Will get a bottle as soon as I go shop for rum

How do butterscotch notes get into a rum with no additives?

Posted 3 Dec '22 by Paul B 🇺🇸 | 464 ratings

Mr Rumantic: Something tells me that this company must have lined the inside of already sweet barrels with butter. And this still does not count as additives. When it comes to "industrial" versus "artisan" for Brazilian cachacas, it has nothing to do with the yeast. It is about how long the cane juice is allowed to ripen out in the hot tropical sun before fermentation begins. Less than 90 minute...

tracking info

Posted 3 Dec '22 by Andy (PREMIUM) 🇬🇧 | 126 ratings

Sorry about that Agustin, we had a backlog of shipments with our retail partner that I'm assured is now being cleared as we speak. It's a new partner and we're just working out the kinks, they don't always provide us tracking numbers to pass on unfortunately. It's surprisingly complicated to ship spirits in the US - we still want to provide the RR community with unique rums, especially when we kn...

Smooth, rich, sweet toffee, lovely to drink. Expensive though. For the same price you can buy 2 bottles of Plantation XO 20th Anniversary. My favorite:)
