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.
This is a fine rum but i would say it's pretty much on the same level as the 15 year and not a big step above. The 15 year arguably has a slightly better finish but the taste of the 21 year is just ever so slightly superior. Nice oak barrel taste going on! You can definitely own both as they are different but i wouldn't say one is better than the other.
I would give it a 7,5, but I can't. I do not think it is in the same league of the El Dorado 15 or Zacapa Solera 23, but you have to pay the same amount (at least in the UK). I think it is a great rum and I appreciate how well balanced it is, but it does not have the same level of complexity of the two aforementioned rums (and costs the same). I put it in the same category of the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva: great elegant rums amd they will make you always happy. But not quite at the same level of Zacapa 23 and El Dorado 15.
One of the best rums I have tried so far. Definitely a sipper, don't you dare mix it. Very elegant and smooth, you will definitely taste the vanilla.
I like the taste but this is just a bit too strong for me (62% ABV). It is delightful if you drink it with some dark chocolate, but alone is very intense. Probably not recommended to first timers. I used it as a mixer (mainly with orange juice) and I found it lovely. But I prefer sippers, and I do not think this one is.
This rum has a lot of character and you can feel it when you first taste it. The first sip is strong and intense. It gets smoother after it rests in the glass for a while. In the UK, you can find it at around £55. I am not sure I would be willing to pay so much. I got it directly from Antigua at a much cheaper price (around £30), which makes an interesting purchase.
This is the first agricole rum i have ever tried. The first thing i noticed different to other rums was the smell. It was such a nice and pleasant explosion of aromas! I am not really fussed about smelling drinks before sipping, it was just something i noticed haha. I also found it to be ridiculously smooth, with almost no burn whatsoever. The only downside to this rum that i experienced is that the first sip was really good but it slowly decreased in enjoyment, the more you drink. That being said, this rum was a pleasant surprise and worth trying.
Without a doubt one of the best blended and flavorful rums in the world, would classify it with Pyrat rum as my two favorite and this is coming from a person who’s tasted the best from around the world
The best tasting rum I’ve ever tried, color is the hue of sweet molasses;bottle is the shape of real pirate bottles. Perfect for sipping or cocktails.
This is the first rum from Havana Club i have tried and i found it to be a pretty decent rum but not all that memorable. It does have a nice flavour but also has a bit of bite so it's not the smoothest rum about. Definitely worth trying though. Great presentation.
El color no es nada prometedor, mas bien muy opaco, probablemente por el corto tiempo de añejamiento.
En nariz el barniz predomina como también el ahumado e incluso fruta caramelizada. En boca, el barniz es aún mas acentuado, al igual que el ahumado y la fruta malograda.
Me recuerda mucho a los rones jamaicanos no manipulados. Mucho ésteres, además es un por still, sabroso, aunque a muchos probablemente no les guste. Extraordinario!
Tiene un hermoso color ámbar. En nariz el coco es intenso pero también madera, poco dulce. En boca se repite el coco, también el amargo de la madera. No quema en boca pero si calienta el estomago. Me gusta mucho. Debe ser uno de los mejores rones en relación calidad-precio.
I was curious if this one would be my another perfect 10. I really like abuelo 12y so my expectation was high. Aroma is very deep with a lot of oak, caramel and little bit of smoke. Rum is super-smooth and very creamy. In the mouth you can feel flavours of vanilla, caramel and oak from cask. Everything is very well balanced. I would rate it 9,5 because its really awesome but centenario 30 is still slightly better.
