I enjoy this over the rocks with lime. It’s not my favorite rum, but I like keeping it on the shelf for an after work glass.

A classic column still rum made from one of the best locations. It’s also sustainably made. I prefer to sip this, but its also great in juices. A choice no rum connoisseur should pass by!

Plantation 2007 Guyana Collection 15-Year rum

Plantation 2007 Guyana Collection 15-Year review posted 3 hours ago by Rene Rum (PREMIUM) 🇨🇭 | 528 ratings

Schönes sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase weich und tief. Frisch gebackene Schokoladenbrötchen im Vanillezucker gewendet und mit einem Hauch Kardamom und Zimt verfeinert. Dazu eine Holzschüssel voll mit leckerem Kompott in aus Birnen, Zwetschgen, rote Beeren, etwas Rhabarber und einem Krümel Harz. Eine leichte Karamellsauce rundet es vorzüglich ab.
Am Gaumen satt und kräftig. Die Brötchen sind mit zartem Karamell gefüllt und erzeugen ein wohliges Mundgefühl. Die zermanschten Früchte gleiten langsam über die eh schon verwöhnte Zunge und umschmeicheln die Geschmacksknospen. Die gerösteten Gewürze, Harze, Tannine, Kakaobohnen und Holznoten tauchen geisterhaft immer wieder dazwischen auf.
Im Abgang lang und trocken. Gewürze und Holz verlassen das Schauspiel zuerst, Früchte folgen später, das Karamell bleibt bis zum Schluss und zurück bleibt etwas Harz auf der Zunge.
Ein toller Rum, schön rund und doch Charakter. Für Einsteiger, Fortgeschrittene und Geniesser. 8+

Beautiful rich amber in the glass.
In the nose soft and deep. Freshly baked chocolate rolls tossed in vanilla sugar and finished with a touch of cardamom and cinnamon. Accompanied by a wooden bowl full of delicious compote in from pears, plums, red berries, some rhubarb and a crumb of resin. A light caramel sauce rounds it out exquisitely.
The palate is rich and robust. The rolls are filled with delicate caramel and create a comforting mouthfeel. The crushed fruit slowly glides over the already indulged tongue and caresses the taste buds. The toasted spices, resins, tannins, cocoa beans and wood notes keep ghostly popping up in between.
The finish is long and dry. Spices and wood leave the show first, fruits follow later, the caramel stays until the end and left behind is some resin on the tongue.
A great rum, nice and round yet character. For beginners, advanced and connoisseurs. 8+

Zaka Mauritius 7-Year rum

Zaka Mauritius 7-Year review posted 5 hours ago by Kieron wood 🇬🇧 | 620 ratings

Direct from the zaka website
Zaka Mauritius: the cultural melting pot. The history of rum in Mauritius is closely linked to the development of the sugarcane industry on the island. The Dutch were not only known as the first settlers but also those who have planted sugarcane imported from Java in 1639, then produced the first "eaux de vie decanne" in 1694.

The French arrived on the island in 1715 and created the first distillery in 1740. At that time, the rum was called Arak, a Creole term still used by some Mauritians to describe alcoholic drinks. Then, they introduced the Batavia sugarcane, which is more resistant and ideal for volcanic soils and the tropical climate of Mauritius.

At that time, rum was closely related to the celebrations and dances that formed, among slaves and peasants, the ritual of beginning and ending of harvest. The term Zaka also means "give, share", which is particularly true for Mauritians known for their sense of hospitality and generosity. Workers from India, Africa or Asia who have all worked on the plantations also had great respect for the land and its produce. The fusionof cultures has always represented Mauritius’ identity and is portrayed in Zaka Mauritius Rum.

Scent is medium to dark character.

Taste has a good balance of sweetness and spices. Notes of vanila and caramel, chocolate, licorice and a little bit of wood.

Burns only a little.

7.5 points.

Plantation Pineapple Stiggins' Fancy Smoky Formula rum

Plantation Pineapple Stiggins' Fancy Smoky Formula review posted 7 hours ago by Rummel (PREMIUM) 🇳🇱 | 43 ratings

I have to say that I like this Plantation quite a bit but I know better ones. There is definitely a whiskey tinge to it, as well as a small smoke flavor, but it remains a bit flat in my opinion. Pineapple does come out well, though but I miss the long aftertaste and that’s a pity. Lately I'm maybe used to some more exciting rums I'm afraid. Still, I didn't find it completely nasty so that's why I still give it a 7. Nice for in the cola.

Velier 1978 Skeldon rum

Velier 1978 Skeldon review posted 8 hours ago by Foglialuce 🇮🇹 | 157 ratings

Al naso è corposo, pungente e avvolgente, con note di arrostito, legno, tabacco, cuoio, vaniglia, caffè, zucchero bruciato, un po' di colla e prugne mature.
Al palato è esplosivo e intenso con note sporche di caucciù/pelle, arrostito, tabacco, barile tostato, garofano intenso(purtroppo), cumino, cacao amaro e prugne premature.
Finale infinito e ricco, lascia la bocca impastata. Un gusto unico e speciale, abv perfetto, dimostra 10 gradi in meno, ma dalla rotondità un po' spigolosa.
In un certo senso ricorda un po' un Caroni, mi aspettavo più dolcezza. Facendolo riposare a lungo il garofano/cumino tende a coprire un po' il resto e diventa dominante. Nel bicchiere vuoto garofano, cuoio, arrostito. Purtroppo non mi piacciono le spezie come il garofano in generale

Dark peach in color. On the nose I get dryed fried fruits and some cigar. On palate, the cigar in quite distinct with sweet notes of dried fruits again, maybe some coffee too?
My first agricole, so I'm not so sure about it.

Samozřejmě není to XO 20th ale za ty peníze hodně dobrý rum ke kterému se rád vrátím. Pěkně vybalancovaná chuť s příchutí ovoce a vanilky. Dlouhotrvající závěr.
