Since the bottle is wrapped in real leather and the bottle is well made I came to believe it would be the equal to my favourite of 12yrs El Dorado. But no. The odeur was unpleasant and the taste likewise. For the price not good. There are much better rums for less money. Big dissatisfaction
First time I tasted it I tought it wasn't realy my kind of rum. But i was wrong. Now I Like to have a bottle of this one. It's sweet, but not to much, it has a realy Nice finish. It smells realy soft. It's easy to drink. Realy Nice in the evening.
It's Fine, if you Like rum that doesn't tastes Like rum. The Orange is a little bit to overwelming for me, and I lost the good old rum flavour. To bad because it couldve been good.
I do not have enough experience to describe the exact sent and taste of this rum, but boy do I love this one. It smells great, after smelling this rum, other ones don't smell Like much anymore. It's a Nice, sweet, overwelming taste. It feels Nice and warms you up completely. This is a sweet rum, not to sweet, has a lot of character and has a Nice finish. I do love this rum.
This was my first sipping rum. I do enjoy it, but not as much as let's say the 15 year old one. It's a Nice rum, sweet, smooth to drink, and a Fine rum to drink in the evening before going to bed.
I have tried a lot of rum, mainly Bajan , have recently paid a bit more for aged runs such as mount gay extra old, which is a similar price to this and to me has way more character.
The first thing I noticed is this is so sweet.
I am currently drinking it with ting as in the Uk the sugar content has been lowered so this “rum” balances it out.
Fantastic packaging with a nice nose, this rum want to be a mid plus sipper but not for me. Some nut smells and woods make the aroma appealing but on the tongue the burn is predominate and hangs with you.
A different kind of mixer with the rum not adding. Best with citrus, typical of a drier rum, but lost in Coke. Once again I did not blend it but do not think there is anything there for most drinks.
Not a bad rum just not above average and is priced to be something special; not in my long term plans.
Not good enough for me.
Smells good, but, in palate I feel something artificial.
Smooth, not too sweet and short aftertaste.
Mount Gay XO is cheaper and far away better than this Quorhum 30.
Very heavy on tropical fruit and sweetness in nose, taste actually dry and watery and a bit medicinal, but interesting nonetheless. At least it is not sour like every other mediocre aged rum.
I got the opportunity to attend a rum tasting with Daniele Biondi from Velier were we tasted 9 different rums. This was the eighth rum of the night, that we tasted side-by-side with the 39th release of the same series "The Last". I have a big place in my heart for Caroni, so to be able to taste this one was fantastic. It shares similar characteristics with it´s brother, but is a bit more well-rounded.
Nose: Diesel, figs, mango, tarmac, cane sugar and some camphor
Taste: Straw, peach pit, figs, dark chocolate and tobacco
Overall: This is just a fantastic rum. It has the classic Caroni feel to it and as soon as it enters the glass, you just know, that you are drinking something special. It is maybe a bit to smooth for my liking, but I have nothing bad to say about this rum. Fantastic!
Au nez, pas grand chose de fort ne se dégage.
En première gorgée, modéré en alcool.
Au final il ressemble a un Whisky relativement léger, pas vraiment à un rhum.
Really just like Esclavo XO, I could not tell the difference. Since it is Danish like Esclavo, maybe it is sourced the same way. Price is also identical.
Nice little more sweet rum with good flavor Of orange and caramel. Little nuts and ending taste with feeling of enough alcohol.
