My new favorite. Rum belongs to the class of super-premium, has a large number of awards and medals and is considered one of the best in the world. He also became the first rum in the International Hall of Fame. The color of the rum is dark golden, with a slight shade of red.
The aroma easily captures notes of vanilla, iris, spices, caramel, ginger, orange peel, oak and roasted nuts. Sea of pleasant tasty aromas. The smell is certainly gorgeous.
The taste is balanced, soft and complex. Cocoa, vanilla, lime, mango, spices and dried fruits are felt in it. It is drunk pleasantly and with great pleasure.
The finish is not sharp and long. Caramel and chocolate are felt.
The strength of the drink is 40%. Definitely recommend this beauty
After I've tested Canne Bleu I expected for more from this rhum. But my hopes are broken - this one was not so bad but not so great like his "blue label"...
This is really nice supprise. This was my first rum from Abuelo and and it was a hit. Really nice aroma of oak, vanilla and caramel. In mouth you can feel nice balance of fruit, oak, toffee and vanilla. End is supprisingly long and sweet. Outstanding rum for its price.
Much better and smoother than his 12y brother. This is really awesome rum with right amount of sweethness. Aroma of coffee and nuts. In mouth continue flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, vanilla and oak. Absolutely great.
Interesting nose but on the younger has a lasting bite and not much depth in flavor. Full disclosure I an not a wine fan but typically enjoy Cognac occasionally and thought this could be a nice twist. Mixed the rum And it still has the burn and there is a heavy aftertaste that reminds me of a wine or flat beer. Cannot see it as a part of my bar...
Look I’m not a HUGE fan of Barbados rum but I can’t rate on personal likes or dislikes , this is a very good rum and well worth picking up a bottle, I enjoy it a a mixer for sure
Bardzo fajny kształt butelki.
Dobre połączenie rumie agricole z rumaki z melasy.
Zapach mocny, słodkich suszonych owoców tropikalnych, prażone orzechy.
W smaku zdecydowanie wyczuwalne drzewne akcenty, szczególnie świeży dąb. Trochę wanilia, lekko pikantny, na końcu smak przydymiony.
Dość mocno wyczuwalny alkohol, ale nie przeszkadza zupełnie. Powiedziałbym , że posmak alkoholu wręcz go dopelnia.
Bardzo dobry rum z Mauritius.
I was waiting for this beauty almost year and was worth it. This is the smoothest rum I ever tasted. Flavours of fruit, coffe, caramel, little bit of cinamon. You can feel that was aged in bourbon casks. End si very long and warm.
Bacardi made this good looking rum; the Carta Fuego. The rum is aged for a year in charred oak barrels and mixed with several spices. It has a beautiful dark colour and a sweet and spicy smell. The taste is a combination of cinnamon, vanilla and red fruit and that made it surprisingly pleasant for a Bacardi rum! A big dissapointment is that the oak is not easy to distinguish. Also the rum is quite syrupy.
I didn't try original barcelo but this one was very solid. Flavours of fruit, vanilla, oak and a lot of smoke. Little bit less smoke and more wood in taste and it could be 8.
When you drink the Zacapa 23 Solera you know what you get. We are, IMHO, in a similar league than the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, although the Zacapa could be a bit more expensive depending on the country. Definitely worth trying, especially as it is usually easier to find than other similar level rums.
Very intriguing rum if you can get it in the price range £25-30, although it might me worth paying an extra £5 and get the 12-years old. Regardless, very enjoyable!
