Ffffff

Darboussier Hors d'Age review posted less than a minute ago by Michal Micko from Czech Republic with 385 ratings

Aroma is warm and sweet. Taste is well balanced and very complex - lightly sweet, fruits, dry apricots, flowers. Aftertaste is long and pleasant. Very nice surprise. Perfect price (45Eur) Agricole fans can add +1 point

Don Papa Small Batch review posted 12 minutes ago by MRBTZ78 from Sweden with 10 ratings

I’ve been interested to try the Don Papa Small Bach for a while now and now I finally got my self a bottle. First thing I noticed when opening the bottle was a sweet smell almost like a birthday cake. Not like anything I’ve ever felt before. After letting it rest for 5 minutes in a glass I took a sip. It’s sweet, like really sweet and the taste is overwhelming with vanilla fudge and then comes the burn. Overall I’d say it’s perfect together with a cup of coffee but not as a rum you sit down and enjoy on a Friday or Saturday night.

To make it drinkable as anything else I mixed 80% Plantation Grand Reserve Barbados with 20% Don Papa.

Fruity taste with a clear barrel character, hints of arrack, orange, chocolate, vanilla, nougat and cola.

Bottle: 700ml
Alcohol: 40%
Sugar content: 30g/l

La Maison Du Rhum Peroa review posted 28 minutes ago by Michal Micko from Czech Republic with 385 ratings

Aroma is gentle with sherry and vanilla. First taste is sweet, after come burning (pepper) vanilla, wood, honey and chocolate. Aftertaste is shorter and not very pleasant - bit burning.

Ron Centenario 1985 review posted 43 minutes ago by Michal Ernest from Czech Republic with 50 ratings

Tato podle Ron Centenario limitovaná edice v počtu 12.000 kusů pro celý svět mi velice chutná. Je to první Ron Centenario lahvovaný při 43%. Chuť whisky ze sudů ve kterých tento rum zrál je tam hodně zřetelná.

Aroma is nice, with leather, wood and fruits. Taste is a bit bitter with typical Caroni aromas and taste, but rounded and not aggressive. Aftertaste is shorter.

Asi jsem měl štěstí, protože agricole rumy jsou pro mne velká neznámá, tento mi docela chutnal. Byl trochu silnější, než na co jsem byl dosud v oblasti rumů zvyklý, ale překvapivě hodně dobře pitelný.

I like 25y and very similar 20y - both are smooth and delicious rums.

Smooth, delicious, pleasantly sweet rum, long tail, no sharp alcohol flavour, really great. I prefer slightly sweeter rum to dry rum and it is exactly this one.

Plantation Fiji Island Linie Aquavit 9-Year review posted 1 hour ago by VikingXO from Denmark with 129 ratings

I must be honest to say i did not expect much of this rum finished in Linie Aquavit (snaps) barrels. But i must admit this is surpisingly good. The Aquavit finish add some dry and bitternes that is actually very well balanced. Nose i get intens fruity cocoa notes and smoke. On the palate i feel spices and some bitternes from the Aquavit, mint maybe? Interesting aftertaste, sour, bitter and vanille. Well integrated ABV of 48,6. Try it!

"vomi1011:

Read the details of the segments from the Swedish document posted by Stefan very carefully. It is not just one sentence, but deliberately vague. It is also open to interpretation, and I gathered that those two overproof rums fall under the new rules."

Disappointing. Can't drink it neat, it's a push to use for mixing, likely to end up in the drain tbh, won't ever buy again, but willing to try their higher end bottles

"Which criteria does the OFTD not meet?
https://www.plantationrum.com/oftd
Did Pussers have problems with the added sugar?
I think the new Pussers Guyana bottlings also meet the EU criteria.

"By comparison, Pusser’s is all natural. No sugar or flavoring agents have been added. It is still the same Admiralty rum, the original Navy Rum, as it has been for more than 300 years.""

"It will be very interesting to see how different producers tackle it.
Some will eventually change their additives if they are close to 20g and others will change their labeling. Maybe some single producer chooses not to export to the EU, even if I don’t think so.
And Paul, you’re probably right about that the majority will use different labeling depending on to were it’s exported.

But in the end no one will be left without their favorite drink because in principle everything will remain, but with different labeling, except that maybe a few varieties will be a little less sweet in cases where producers decide to change their products.

"Stefan:

So according to this new EU rule, the incredible Pusser's Gunpowder Proof could no longer be able to be labeled as a rum! The same goes for the even better Plantation OFTD!

The USA will probably never see this ruling, so the rum companies will need to create different labels based upon their final destination. And here is why. The big three rum companies are on US territories, Bacardi, Captain Morgan, and Cruzan. Big money from these three will make sure that this EU law will never be adopted. However, if this were to be adopted in the USA, most of these beverages could no longer be labeled as rum because they are obsessed with the flavored market to make the lives of bartenders much easier."

"Pitbull:

Those cheap rums used as party drinks are the reason for the bad reputation among "rums". The master blenders from all over the Caribbean knew damn well that true rum deserves much better appreciation and so began the quest to create premium rums. Only a fool would waste a premium rum as a party drink. But, if one wants to swill it at a party, pick the cheapest acceptable "rum" and disguise it with all kinds of tropical flavors and juices. True rum punch actually came about because rum was so awful back then."
