Chamarel XO Sauternes Cask Finish rum

Chamarel XO Sauternes Cask Finish review posted 2 minutes ago by Chamarelo 🇩🇪 | 14 ratings

Second tasting of Chamarel Rhum today : XO Chamarel Cask finish
I bought a sample from Rhum Attitude and opened it after a long working day in the garden.
45 % - the beginning of a promising evening :-).
The nose : really fruity. Grapes and also berry I would say. Maybe sugar cane. And alcohol in the backround. Pleasant but not a WOW.
The palate : Ohhh, surprise, what a lot of pear in the first moment. In the second moment it's ... well let's say : pear. With closed eyes I would say it's a Willi (Williams Christ) aged in an oak barrel. And that straight from Mauritius, so it's a tropical Willi :-).
Alcohol is okay, not to sharp, but nevertheless I added some drops of water. Leave it breathe a few minutes. Tasty, really tasty. Much better than the Cognac Cask finish I tried some weeks before.
The end is medium long, absolute okay.
I would like to give him 8 maybe 9 points if I only consider my impression. But the price (here in Germany we have to spend more than 150 Euro for a bottle) induced me to give one point less. So 7 to 8 points for this rhum. I had better rums for less money

Not amazing. Almost no aroma and a strong sting of alcohol. Straight is almost indistinguishable from a generic vodka, and it doesn't exactly shines in cocktails either.

Just what you'd expect for a Puerto Rican at this price point. Better than Bacardi, okay to drink straight in a bind, but probably best relegated to mixing. When your Spievak zombie asks for Puerto Rican rum, this is a good value choice.

Flor de Caña 18-Year rum

Flor de Caña 18-Year review posted 31 minutes ago by CaptainGreen (PREMIUM) 🇺🇸 | 81 ratings

Hell and the Devil! This be an outstandin' sipper - and that be comin' from havin' the 12-year at some point! On the nose, she be nowhere near as harsh as her 12 year-old sister, but what you do smell is CLEAN... pure and clean with oak, caramel, brown sugar, a bit of spice, and a hint of the tropics on a beautiful day. Sweet, but not too much. Enough to be invitin'! Goin' down the hatch, she be SMOOTH with a tiniest of burn, but not nothin' another shot couldn't fix. She be the perfect balance of sweet and dry with oak comin' thru, some caramel, and a bit of spice. If you be one of those sweet-toothed biscuit-eatin' land lubbers, this may not be the rum for you! But for us grown-up pirates, this be exactly the type of action you'd be expectin' from an 18 year-old. Hide this one from the crew, lads. She be a keeper! arrgh!

Plantation 2007 Jamaica Clarendon MSP 15-Year rum

Plantation 2007 Jamaica Clarendon MSP 15-Year review posted 1 hour ago by gohbgl 🇩🇪 | 7 ratings

It looks very good on paper: 15-year-old Jamaica rum, mostly ex-Bourbon casks, high ABV, no added sugar, and a decent price. But after trying it I am overall disappointed. The basic profile of an aged Jamaica rum is present but the nose and taste remind me of aged Cachaça and Agricole. It is fresh, light, spicy, and fruity but it lacks the more heavy body that you would expect from the age statement. It was not what I expected and not what I mostly enjoy. I give it a score of 6.5.

Trois Rivieres Ambré 12-18 Mois review posted 4 hours ago by AlexMo 🇷🇺 | 186 ratings

It`s lighter and softer than Cuvee d`Ocean. Incredibly sweet taste of dry rum! It`s look like Bajan. .,.,.,. Прекрасный лёгкий сухой агриколь. Ароматный, с ощущением сладости и завершённости. Не слишком сложный. Такой хочется иметь пару бутылок в запасе!

One of me first experience with rum. For me was very fine, but I did not know, how good rum should taste.. Beginners only or if your broke and or drunk. Mixer only. There is great marketing behind, but not taste.

Navy Island 2022 PX Sherry Finish Cask Strength (CZ exclusive) rum

Navy Island 2022 PX Sherry Finish Cask Strength (CZ exclusive) review posted 6 hours ago by marekfiser 🇨🇿 | 99 ratings

A friends' purchase, supposedly a 1008pcs ltd edition made for Czech market.
My first meeting with rum products from this pretty cool island.
The character is very Jamaican (funky) with PX tones so is relatively sweet even at 63% abv. I might compare this rum to awesome Smith & Cross of similar strength.
Overall about 7,5/10 for me but given the nice price tag and great characteristics (strong but full of flavor) I am gonna round it up.
Like the rum as it stands, no mixers, no drinks aside, just sip it as it is in little doses.
From my short observation this rum is generally more acceptable for broad folks than some other high abv rums (Mhoba, British dark navy rums, etc.)

I've heard that plantation makes good rum, so I decided to buy myself a bottle, big mistake. First whiff singed my nose, and the taste singed my mouth, throat and taste buds If you want a sipping rum there are many better option than this particular bottle. Diplomatico or even Havana club is much better

Navy Island Navy Strenght rum

Navy Island Navy Strenght review posted 10 hours ago by Stefan Persson (TASTING CLUB) 🇸🇪 | 327 ratings

This Jamaican pot still rum at ABV 57% is a blend of distillates from Hampden, Worthy Park and Monymusk.
It’s aged in former bourbon barrels.
The color is deep amber with a little help from added color otherwise there’s no flavoring additives.
On the nose it’s aromatic and fruity with some funkiness.
In mouth and palate it’s like on the nose but also spicy and oily with a certain sweetness plus that I recognize bananas, citrus and hints of vanilla.
The finish goes on in the same way and it becomes very dry in the end.
Overall a well balanced full bodied Jamaican rum without being extremely heavy and overloaded with esters.
Picture: My opened bottle and a poured glass out in the Stockholm archipelago.

I got this as part of the Rum Ratings Tasting Club kit, and it was another rum from that kit that didn't disappoint!

Smells and tastes nicely sweet with vanilla, toffee, oak, light spice, and honey.

I really enjoyed it; Spanish style rums are my favorite.

Take this with a grain of salt, as I am very new to drinking rum neat. I'm not a huge fan of the taste of the barrel first and rum second, and this hit it home for me. I did find it hits all the marks of a Spanish style rum.

Either where the sugarcane grew or where it was aged. Where it got distilled or put in a bottle is irrelevant.

Don Q 151 Overproof rum

Don Q 151 Overproof review posted 19 hours ago by DieselTech139 🇺🇸 | 6 ratings

I like the light golden color and I use this as an added boost to my rum based drinks that are just not doing what they should. This does the trick and is reasonably priced for an over proof but should be used with care as the 75.5% abv is just as it says! 🙃😳

I bought this for my cocktails that require a clear rum in the ingredients and it just worked perfectly for me. And, unlike It's brother Q #7, it is reasonably priced. That reminds me, I gotta add this to my list to restock.

Great Aroma, Fine smooth taste that just goes down too easy. Great neat but as a mixer, sometimes I think it gets lost amongst the other added ingredients in my Favorite rum based cocktails. This is my go to and I have a hard time keeping this in my private stock as it only lasts 4 days sometimes!

This is my go to rum when I run out of my favorite ( in my reviews soon) as it mixes well and adds to but doesn't take over my rum based cocktails. Not sure it's worth the price but I will continue to keep it in stock.

Pusser's British Navy Blue Label 3-Year review posted 19 hours ago by DieselTech139 🇺🇸 | 6 ratings

Tried this for first time this week as I ran out of my favorite and this was all I had left, and I was quite disappointed and dissatisfied with the taste as a mixer for my Rum based cocktails. It kind of takes over and made my cocktails less enjoyable. I will pass on this and shelf it as a last resort.. your mileage may vary Just my $.02
