Makes you want to set sail in the Caribbean...For those who like a bit more kick to their rum, this is for you. Strong - but only to the point of reminding you that you are an adult drinking an alcoholic beverage...not a "20-something" pounding cheap rum and sugary soda. This is a drink that demands you to take the time to sip and enjoy. At 110+ proof is is strong, but has a mellow tone to it that makes you want to give it a try neat. Mixed, you will have a nice "rum forward" cocktail on your hands.
Aging in single malt whiskey barrels is a match made in rum heaven. The whiskey adds a nuance and mellowness that makes this a go to for sipping rum. Enjoy neat with a good cigar...
This is a nice rum. Well balanced and just a touch on the sweet side - but not close to be syrupy. While it carries a price point that puts it on the shelf with inferior product - the actual taste and feel of the rum allows it to punch above its weight class. Nice to sip and mix it if you must, either way you will be proud of yourself for finding such a high quality rum in in this price point
vůně: lehce mandlová, ořechy
chut:docela prijemný jemnší rum s lehkým alkoholovým palením.
barva světlější mandlový
Nose: oak, molasses, dates, dried fruits, vanilla. Palate: Oak barrel, dark chocolate, slightly smoky notes, nutty, raisins. Finish: Mild and long-lasting
Conclusion: An authentic, honest Barbados rum of 12 years in barrel without sugar additives.
Nose: Fruity (cognac-like), slightly woody, sweetish, reminiscent of plum brandy; Palate: spicy, dry, slightly bitter, subtle sweetness, wood, still plum is there, a bit smoky; Finish: dark (biiter) chocolate, dry; if rated also for the bottle at least one grade should be added
The rum was a present so I wont look for pricing. It has a nice smoothness to it at first, but a steong ending. It is suitable for introducing people to rum. That being said there are smoother and better ones out there, still above average in my opinion.
Beautiful bottle, massive wood cork. Buy this one for almost 70 euros. But I’m little bit disappointed.
Nose: little bit orange notes, much caramel and wood. And I found liquorice.
Taste: dry. Aggressive (this 46% you will feel...) , again wood, leather.
Drop of water and I feel much liquorice now...
Sorry but 6,3. - 6,5
...well, I was surprised of the bourbish flavor. It hits you unexpected...smokey, sharp with a burn...warms the stomach and throat...after letting it rest a while, a bit of sweetness comes through.
To be honest...the price of appr. 40 EUR is a bit too much for it...I see it rather between EUR 22 to EUR 27 max.
Rating is a 6,5.
I had the 15 year aged and the 8 years aged I still have more then half a bottle. That says enough.... unfortunately the 15 years aged is hard to get outside Suriname.
