I have tried a lot of rum, mainly Bajan , have recently paid a bit more for aged runs such as mount gay extra old, which is a similar price to this and to me has way more character.
The first thing I noticed is this is so sweet.
I am currently drinking it with ting as in the Uk the sugar content has been lowered so this “rum” balances it out.
Fantastic packaging with a nice nose, this rum want to be a mid plus sipper but not for me. Some nut smells and woods make the aroma appealing but on the tongue the burn is predominate and hangs with you.
A different kind of mixer with the rum not adding. Best with citrus, typical of a drier rum, but lost in Coke. Once again I did not blend it but do not think there is anything there for most drinks.
Not a bad rum just not above average and is priced to be something special; not in my long term plans.
Not good enough for me.
Smells good, but, in palate I feel something artificial.
Smooth, not too sweet and short aftertaste.
Mount Gay XO is cheaper and far away better than this Quorhum 30.
Very heavy on tropical fruit and sweetness in nose, taste actually dry and watery and a bit medicinal, but interesting nonetheless. At least it is not sour like every other mediocre aged rum.
I got the opportunity to attend a rum tasting with Daniele Biondi from Velier were we tasted 9 different rums. This was the eighth rum of the night, that we tasted side-by-side with the 39th release of the same series "The Last". I have a big place in my heart for Caroni, so to be able to taste this one was fantastic. It shares similar characteristics with it´s brother, but is a bit more well-rounded.
Nose: Diesel, figs, mango, tarmac, cane sugar and some camphor
Taste: Straw, peach pit, figs, dark chocolate and tobacco
Overall: This is just a fantastic rum. It has the classic Caroni feel to it and as soon as it enters the glass, you just know, that you are drinking something special. It is maybe a bit to smooth for my liking, but I have nothing bad to say about this rum. Fantastic!
Au nez, pas grand chose de fort ne se dégage.
En première gorgée, modéré en alcool.
Au final il ressemble a un Whisky relativement léger, pas vraiment à un rhum.
Really just like Esclavo XO, I could not tell the difference. Since it is Danish like Esclavo, maybe it is sourced the same way. Price is also identical.
Nice little more sweet rum with good flavor Of orange and caramel. Little nuts and ending taste with feeling of enough alcohol.
Duft af hindbær og muligvis lidt rosin. Smagen starter sødt, måske lidt sherry, men bliver hurtigt afløst af fad og tørhed, som går over i peber. Egentlig ikke en dårlig oplevelse, men jeg forventer mere, som med 5+5. Der er potentiale til mere, hvis man forfulgte sherryen lidt mere. (19. December 2018 i MacY)
I normally ignore 151 overproof rums, but my fence builder inspired me to try one. On the first day, he ripped down my old fence and stuck six new posts in concrete to cure overnight. I paid him part of his labor fee. The next day, he told me that he bought a bottle of Bacardi 151 and drank the whole bottle last night with no ice or mixer. He was not hung over! I told him that it was because it had no added sugar. Granted he is a quarter of a century younger than me and about 25 percent heavier, but being able to drink a whole bottle of Bacardi 151 and still come to work the next day to finish building my fence was truly amazing!
A few days later, I went looking for the Cruzan 151, which is rated better on this site. I could not find the Bacardi or Cruzan, but being a big fan of Don Q Anejo and a few other ones from them, I gladly bought this Don Q 151. Just like their Don Q Anejo, it has a wonderful aroma. I would not even think of drinking this one neat, but on the rocks was quite a flavorful and pleasant experience. There are also lots of warnings on the bottle about getting it too close to flames or high heat. This one should be light years above the Bacardi 151, pun intended.
Good but not great rum. Bought a bottle and finished it. Does not have the fullness of Zacapa and does not have the presence of vanilla and toffee of Kirk and Sweeney.
Tried this rum at a restaurant because it did not have any of my go to rums. I actually liked this rum a lot. It was balanced and not overly sweet. I don’t like sweet rum. I’ll buy this one again.
В баре конечно выделяется на фоне других бутылок рома как говориться есть чем похвастаться ) . Содержимое я так понимаю тоже что и Pusser's 15 лет. Ром очень хорошь а главное в графине целый литр этой прелести) Покупать обязательно если попадется!
