Pues eso, otro ron venezolano que tiene esos 40 grados pero no tiene mucha variedad de tonos y al paladar bastante duro, pero está bien para tomarlo solo, con hielo en combinados, me costó 8'5€ pues a disfrutar......
Riecht am Anfang stark nach Alkohol. Gibt man ihm etwas Zeit legt sich das und leichte Toffee Noten kommen zum Vorschein.
Leichte Karamell Noten und im Abgang Vanille und ein wenig Holz
Schöne dunkle Farbe im Glas.
Leichte Töne von Leder und Teer.
Etwas scharf im Abgang.
Interessanter Rum mir aber etwas zu scharfer Alkoholabgang
Cubaney has a new package. It looks better than the old one in my opinion. It's not as good as the one from Zacapa XO, but I like it.
Smell: Caramel, wood, some sherry, fermented fruits, burned sugar. Very nice, very smooth, well balanced. No alcohol in the nose at all.
Taste: Caramel, slightly sweet, dry fruits, wood, bitterness, burned sugar. Some spice in the finish, it's smooth.
Slightly sherry in the aftertaste (I expected that, typical for Oliver & Oliver).
I expected more from the smell, it's not special. I know some other rums that go in that direction (Ron Botran, QRM30). They are not that good but a way cheaper.
Yes, there are some similarities with QRM30. QRM has more sherry aroma, more wood, more alcohol in the nose. Cubaney is more balanced, more intense in the taste, it's heavier because of the burned sugar aroma.
But QRM has a better value for the price.
Hay que admitir que la botella y etiqueta es muy bonita, me gusta. Pero ahí queda el asunto. Definitivamente NO es ron. Incluso en nariz no es tan malo si se tomara en cuenta que es un licor. Pero en boca es terrible, ni siquiera el aroma queda en boca. Exageradamente dulce, suave e irritante. Como licor no es malo, pero repito, NO ES RON.
Tiene un bonito color ámbar que promete.
En nariz lamentablemente muy poco, algo de caramelo, melaza y vainilla. En boca bastante aburrido, muy standart, pero no malo, es agradable, bidimensional. Se repite la vainilla y caramelo. Bueno pero nada especial.
A rum that can be enjoyed both neat and in cocktails. Always gives you a feeling of Caribbean islands, no matter how you use it. A fantastic balance between rum and pineapple.
It's definitely not like others. Very sweet, and candy like in taste and nose. If love trying out different tastes, then give it a try. But don't expect a traditional rum
A rum with no additives or added sugar, you get a rum as it is. As you can expect from the label, it is a dry rum. So not recommended for beginners, but definitely worth trying out as a more seasoned rum drinker.
A great combination of coffee and rum. Very sweet, and can therefore become to much in large quantities. But at a game night with friends and family, combined with chocolate, coffee and cookies its perfect.
The label mentions the fruity esters that a traditional pot still distills over into the liquor, but I also got some ketones, that rattled my “warning” circuits. I’m still new to this dizzying array of rums my friend and I have been collecting and sampling, so I’m sure if those flashes of acetone are what I want in a rum. Probably not in a sipping rum, but this might be a great mixing rum in a fruit forward tiki drink. Price was not bad at $25 for a fifth. I’ll have to try it in a drink or two and reevaluate...
Mahogany brown in color with a divine nose of butterscotch, oak, caramelized sugar, and the slightest waft of vegetal funk on the edge. Not a hint of added sugar, but a hint of sweet in the finish along with the oak wood aroma and just enough bite to let you know it’s a spirit your sipping, but otherwise quite smooth. A couple drops of water added a bit more sweetness to the finish and erased the minimal bite to a whisper.
But so is the stuff I put in my lawnmower.. that being said , it is drinkable , triple filtered so that removes a lot of the horrible original U.P taste , thank god. Still only 37.5% but an ok mixer that has a bit of a whisky taste.
Not a re buy for me..
So, i went to a rumshop out of town. We talk rum for a bit and chattet. At Some point She points to this beutifull bottle claiming its the Best rom in the World. Looking at the bottle i wasn't impressed. I 40% abv solera rum from? Not that special Looking at the bottle.
Wow was i gladly surprised. A Smooth and full bodied rum with great aroma and a Nice long finish.i must admit its a Really good rum. But to say its the Best rom in the World? I World suite say. I Think its a Little sweet and i World have liked a Little more abv.
This is a very fine rum with a great balance of sweetness, strength and taste. Such a shame i will never own a bottle since it has all sold out! I was lucky enough to get a 5cl sample and enjoyed it quite a bit. I wouldn't say it is absolutely ground breaking but what it is, is a very enjoyable rum worthy of owning and enjoying.
