I thoroughly enjoyed this rum. It has a nice complexity, mixing grassy and fruity notes with a long finish. What a nice long lasting afterburn to balance out the sweetness from the Armagnac barrel. I had it neat at a local bar and will def buy a bottle.
Quite dry but with enough sweetness to make it up for it. Vanilla, apples and dried fruits makes the nose and palate with some grassy notes to balance it out and make it a really enjoyable and easy drinking Agricole.
Long time zaya fan as an inexpensive smooth sipper. I do like this with a Single rock. Like the 12 it is VERY smooth. Sweet forward, almost no spice. Really Just a mellowed version of the 12. Easy sipper, but not very complex. I will buy again.
This is actually....OK! I am a little shocked because most Bacardi rum is completely underwhelming. In the US the store shelves are lined top to bottom with their many subpar variations. It is frankly a bit nauseating. This is not the worst coconut rum out there. It is also not the best but would make a very acceptable mixer. Well Bacardi.....even a broken clock is right twice a day!
When I opened the bottle, I smelled a bit of Captain Morgan White. Not really a compliment.
A strange smell that I cannot properly describe. Something chemical. The rum is very soft but also has a strange taste, not something I like. That's why I can't make it 8.
This rum is truly one of a kind. Complex aroma and flavors. The finish is mild and not sugary. Almost negligible afterburn. It's expensive but worth it.
Lets start off with my expectations, they were quite high for this one, as this is my first Foursquare and everyone I spoke to about it was nothing short of raving about it. So there we go: the smell is smooth and with a promising sweetness. Then when you take a sip, it enters your mouth with a noticable thickness. This quickly disperses in your mouth into a thinner substance that tickles all your tastebuds. Its an explosion of taste, greatly balanced; sweetness as well as a dryer taste. You can really taste the different casks it has aged in. The afterburn is nice and present but yet smooth and leaves you with a warm and enjoyable aftertaste. You will be longing for more, but not in a way that you’ll finish the bottle in no time. It’s a rum that demands attention while drinking to fully enjoy the whole complexity of it. Cheers!
This rum is so unique. The nose is definitely molasses, but the taste is whiskey. Very different. Nice sipping rum also great in an old fashion
The smell is mainly vanilla. Taste is quite smooth, little bit spicy, considably dry and balanced. There is nothing that is too predominant in it. Nice present afterburn that leaves you with a nice aftertaste and a longing for the next sip. Not top of the line, but really enjoyable.
Soft fruity and vanilla smell. Taste is quite sweet and there are some different flavours in there to encounter. Most notable to us was the citrus fruit flavour. The afterburn is really soft, present but not too present, just enjoyable. It makes the rum really easy drinkable. Every sip is a pleasant and interesting experience, but the sweetness and lack of real complexity results in a rum that is not memorable for me.
The smell is quite easy on the nose. A bit spicy and some vanilla. The taste is quite neutral. No real complexity but burn of alcohol while drinking, no real sweetness, which is nice if you are looking to get away from the diplomaticos or the zacapas. No real afterburn, its actually a quite smooth rum. When you make up the balance, you get a nice rum for a nice price. Good to serve to a thirsty crowd, without worrying that your top of the line rum will go wasted on guests that cant appreciate it to the fullest.
Mark: 8.3/10. It is the big brother of Presidente 23, bolder & deeper with smokey end! It has balance sweetness little less than Presidente 23 and compared to UNHIQ XO it is equally good little less alcohol & fruit and little more smoke and oak aftertaste. Very good, not my top becase it is a bit raw but it is original rum & great quality for this price it is excellent!!
Younger brother of Malteco 15y, pretty recognizable Malteco taste, Panama version of Cuba rum style, of course less refined than 15y. Vanilla, oak, tobacco, present in nose, taste has matching profile with pronounced vanilla, the aftertaste ok. I can sip it, there is a bit of an alcohol burn, and the aroma is a bit crude, but where it undoubtedly excels is cuba libre. Score between 6 and 7.
Ideal for sweet rum based drinks as it does bring any sharp notes. This unaged rum is surprisingly smooth, with a mild and uncomplicated taste, with little to no aftertaste. I can imagine something like this is the base for liqueurs such as Kakadu. Or if you want to get drunk cheap - no sugar added, no headache.
Ripe banana smell, banana and other ripe fruits are present in the body too, the unaged alcohol is partially masked by added demerrara sugar, but it still bites, and there is some unpleasant feeling on the tongue instead of an aftertaste, which stopped from trying to sip it. Simple mixer, not too bad for the money.
