Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sweet aroma. The taste, not so much but with a fruity flavor at the start. Ends dry with a good amount of oak present. Enjoyable but very short finish and dryer than I usually like. I prefer sipping rums, and this isn't a bad one. Just doesn't stand out at all. Would drink again if offered to me but not one I will be purchasing for my shelf.
Not bad but... Nice fruity first nose, more oaky afterwards. The mouth is a bit disappointing though it has a long warm finish. Vanilla and baked apple flavours, oaky. I would recommend the 10yrs anniversary edition of in Colombia. Same price but much better thanks to a nice blend of 10, 20 and 30 yrs reserve rums.
Light golden, nice initial spicy taste, lack complexity of some other rums but an enjoyable drink
Really an enjoyable rum. Smooth but still interesting with a little spice. Short finish and not too oily. Probably good for rum rookies but maybe not complex enough for experienced rum drinkers
Un ron que mantiene los sabores característicos de un buen ron colombiano.
Ron Medellin siempre demuestra su elevada categoría con rones de esta gran calidad.
Lucky for me, my dad married a Colombian woman and goes to Columbia to see your family each year. He always bring me back a bottle or two so it's a staple in my house. Definitely a good option when I don't know what to drink.
So many good rums hailing from Colombia and Ron Medellin Gran Reserva 12 year is not one of them. Surprisingly strong alcohol flavor and a very strong burn for a 12 year old rum. Only very marginally better than the 8 year old Ron Medellin.
Honestly took me by surprise. Not a bad drop. The flavor is not amazing and the flavor is good. Most importantly it is not overwhelming sweet.
For a beginner to Rum tastings it's perfect.
I tried this neat and quickly added ice. It might be better with soda water (not coke). The rum has a nice flavor and aroma and it would be lost in coke.
Tenhle me musel ale zklamat, jemny bez chute, neco jako duff beer.
Bon rhum fruité limite florale avec un final marquant mais court, rapport qualité/prix trop élevé en France.
Sin querer me tope con este clásico de costo medio ofrece equilibrio en calidad precio
This is the most wonderful rum which I drank. Unfortunately I of Bulgaria will not be able to buy it.
This ron drinks easy. Price quality is ok. If you go for older rum (above 7 years) then this might not be your choice. However it is a fine and better rum then the younger ones
Una buena opción para los Rones de largo añejado. Sobre todo por su precio al alcance de todos. Se deja tomar incluso sólo o con un poco de agua..... Le da cuerpo a un buen cocktail preparado a invitados especiales
This is my go-to rum when I am in Colombia. Smooth, flavorful, and a great value. I will drink this suave lady neat, and not feel guilty having her as a CubaLibre.
Compared price-wise this would be the best rum to buy. But quality-wise it also stands out. Smooth and warm feeling in the mouth, not too strong aroma. Still have to compare it with the 10 year anniversary, but in the meantime, good enough for me!
Cant recall much outside from caramel and cinnamon.
It was a long series of rum tastings in Colombia but we all preferred the 10 years anniversary Extra Anejo (post to follow)
Definitely a rum worthy of special occasions. To me there is a slight sweetness to it with a good warmth and not any harsh burn. Very light. Works extremely well in Coke Zero although most would recommend it by itself on or the rocks. Works any way you wish.
Fantastic rum. Not sweet at all for a 12 year old. I love that. And ist smells and tastes a bit like toasted hazelnuts for me, brillant. Awesome for drinking pure and for mixing with Coke too (but not with lime or lemon as the hazelnut flavour gets neutralized).
Dont used for mixing, it will be a waste. This rum is strong but no too much, you can sipping a long with the enjoy of the flavor of oak.
Today I finally try my bottle of Ron Medellin Gran Reserva delivered to me from Colombia. First, this rum has a lot more character than añejo. It is a smooth, sweet, but still light rum. Like añejo, it has a very mild flavor characteristic of bourbon but nothing like añejo. It has a slight taste of vanilla and Colombian sugar cane.
This is definitely a sipping rum as a would not dare mix this in anything.
doux, vanillé, pas très complexe, un rhum léger et à la fois plat en bouche il s'efface rapidement, on en redemanderai, il laisse en fin de bouche une sensation de frais, comme après avoir manger de l'estragon,
