Nose is wood to me. Not sweet. Has a spicy finish with a bit of burn.

Bribery 5 Year Panama Reserve 5-Year rum

Bribery 5 Year Panama Reserve 5-Year review posted 8 hours ago by RummyDog 🇨🇦 | 49 ratings

Tonight’s Rum, from Panama, Bribery 5 year Rum. Picked up this bottle at a Bev Mo in Phoenix on a recent visit to the city. Sorry, I’ve never seen it in a BC liquor store. You ready? I sure am!

In the glass the rum is a light copper/coffee, near perfect for an aged rum. I might, though, go so far as say it’s darker than a typical 5 year. Still it looks great. By the way the bottle is a dream of design
(look at the photo).

On the nose the Bribery is alcohol forward; rum notes are lacking. I find trying to pull specific notes out of it is difficult. If pressed I think there’s sour orange, honey, white pepper and perhaps vanilla. On the lips, it’s unexpectedly dry. I expected sweetness, but it just isn’t there. I’m happy it’s not sharp or burns the lips or palette.

In the mouth, it remains bitter with a modicum of heat building over several sips. The dryness continues as I sip more, which to me is disappointing; I prefer a sweeter rum… So that keep that in mind. Distilling flavours, no pun intended, I think bitter pineapple is the prime essence. It reminds me of pineapple bitters I use in mixed tropical drinks. It’s an odd, mild, and complex blend of flavours. I’d say it’s weak. In the throat, it’s reasonably mild; meaning the average drinker would not suffer or react drinking this neat. There's no big burn. The finish is all white pepper, but not in a spicy kind of way. The rum has a hint of pepper and does not burn.

My sense is that this rum is best used in a Rum & Coke, where the sweetness from the Coke compensates for the dryness of the rum. As a tropical mixer, a mango forward drink might be best. Sweet mango to counter the dry rum.

I rate this one as a 6/10 because of it’s lack of bold flavours and dry personality. After visiting Tommy Bahama and Hula’s Tiki Bar in Phoenix, this rum puts me at 403 of my 500 Rum goal. Cheers!

A little harsh as a neat sipper, but does mellow. I like it best on a large cube with coconut water.

Khukri XXX rum

Khukri XXX review posted 14 hours ago by Midgarn 🇺🇸 | 37 ratings

I can smell caramel and/or vanilla in the arroma, but this rum stayed quiet on the tip of my tongue. The sharpest reaction came at the start of the bitter receptors, but in a surprise, the finish was very smooth, almost a mirror to the initial taste.

Mixing with soda mellows this a lot, but it doesn't hide the hollow taste I associate with alcohol.

Pusser's Deptford Dockyard Reserve Ltd Ed 3-Year review posted 15 hours ago by Jimmy Cliff (PREMIUM) 🇺🇸 | 502 ratings

Pusser’s amazes me that they can have a rum only aged years that I find sippable. This one is a little rough around the edges, but at 54.5% it is likewise pretty smooth considering the young age and strength. Initial scent Guyana molasses and greenwood fermentation The same taste carries through, I find this distinctly different than Blue Lable and gunpowder leans more to a young aged version of 15.

Angostura Tribute Distiller’s Cut review posted 16 hours ago by Jimmy Cliff (PREMIUM) 🇺🇸 | 502 ratings

Wow this rum lands way below expectations. My guess is that was aged too long, Im thinking over 20 years. Has a very astringent ethyl taste to it, I find rums resting too long in oak have this ethyl taste to them. We were having a tasting 10 rums 10 tasting. Not one gave an approval and I can’t move past the poisonous taste. Save your money get the one that’s a few notches below this, as. The expat in Tobago suggested.

The first sip and you can feel the sweetness of vanilla and honey. Then you have the feeling that you are drinking alcohol stronger than 40% abv. The finish is dry, but relatively short. There is no feeling of artificial sweetening. For me 6.5/10.

Dictador XO Perpetual rum

Dictador XO Perpetual review posted 18 hours ago by LUKAŽIGA 🇸🇮 | 93 ratings

8:Like the other rums in the range, the nose is marked by coffee, molasses and caramel. These are combined with a slight woodiness, reminiscent of maple syrup. This woodiness is well burnt, the caramel is quite dark, but it remains round, not sticky like charcoal. There's also a hint of roasted walnut, a slightly oxidized side. We take the roundness a step further with a brioche toasted with honey.
With a little air, the nose becomes less sharp and even more mellow. The molasses is still there, but this time it's liquorice.
7,5:The palate is rather lighter and less thick than one might expect. It is totally faithful to the traditional Spanish "ron" style, with caramel, vanilla, toasted wood and tobacco. The coffee is more subdued this time.
7,5:The finish is also fairly typical, of medium intensity. The maple syrup, on the other hand, lingers on the palate.

Clement XO Hors d'Age 6-Year rum

Clement XO Hors d'Age 6-Year review posted 18 hours ago by LUKAŽIGA 🇸🇮 | 93 ratings

8:The nose of this rhum agricole is fresh and minty, green apple arises. It's also loaded with spices, also fresh (curry). It's complex, vegetal and decidedly fresh, like cut grass or Alpine tea. Then a lovely woodiness enters the scene. Finely spiced, it is reminiscent of a cigar box with a hint of vanilla. This woodiness grows stronger, appearing whiter and younger. The cane becomes more powerful, accompanied by its faithful white pepper. A certain naturalness is restored with this wood and fresh cane.
On aeration, sophistication returns with licorice spiked with caraway seeds. We return to the depths of the oak barrel. The woodiness is still new, but softened by honey. Its freshness now brings to mind again apple and pear.
7,8:The palate is well-balanced, typical agricole with as much room for cane as for spice and wood. A certain acidity stimulates the taste buds, which seem to deliver a sweet juice where wood and vanilla merge.
8:Finish-The spices persist, little vanilla joined in the end by past fruits, some nice peaches, licorice, that had remained discreet until then.

Abuelo XII Two Oaks rum

Abuelo XII Two Oaks review posted 19 hours ago by LUKAŽIGA 🇸🇮 | 93 ratings

9:On the nose, the influence of American oak predominates. It does so beautifully, with soft wood, vanilla, blond tobacco, toasted coconut and a certain sweetness that enriches these aromas.
Aeration gives the rum a slightly more conquering side, which then brings out the pepper and smoke. The tobacco is a little browner, and the cane molasses brandy shows a fine concentration, even if the roundness is still palpable.
9:On the palate, the rum is terribly tasty. Once again, it's the American oak that does most of the work, and we've really made the most of its qualities. With a light smoky attack, the aromas of vanilla, red fruits, coconut, oily wood and tobacco are truly thick and delicious.
8,7:The finish maintains this greediness with a certain sweet roundness.

Al naso è ricco con pelle, leggera tostatura, legno, tabacco, un tocco di zucchero bruciato e qualche stagionato.
Al palato mantiene gli stessi aromi con prevalenza di pelle/cuoio, legno, leggera frutta secca(datteri), qualche nota lontana di cognac, un po' di pepe e qualche spezia, nel medio finale anche note floreali e vegetali insieme alle note leggermente stagionate.
Nel bicchiere vuoto stagionati e legno.
