It´s also one of my favorite. (9,5 / 10)
it´s a little different to the A.H. Riise Non Plus Ultra but also
a bit to sweet , with an icecube it´s a little bit less sweet.

If you like sweet Rum , you must try this one.
This rum smells and tastes like an appricot marmelade. For me It is too sweet and fruity and you cant almost recognize that you are drinking a rum.
Sweet as I like it, you can feel the fruits. Amazing aftertaste.
You can't go wrong if you like sweet rum
Enjoyed this one more than for example the 175 anniversary edition or the non plus ultra. If you're into sweet and fruity, almost liqueur-like rum, this is a good choice. Definitely superior to for example a Don Papa
Not my cup of tea though
Pretty full body, but way too sweet for me. Not my cup of coffee.
Ikke smagt. .
Este ron con la capacidad de hacer un cambio de pensamiento en su sabor y aroma
Noise excellent. Sweet, tropical fruit, vanilla. Has to be in my bar. Little bit to much sweet, not for long drinking .
Non plus ultra mi chutná, ale tento měl zvláštní chuť, která mě nezaujala.
The taste is nice - but too sweet, a lot of elements are nice, but but get ready for a rhum that is extremely sweet. You might even be able to find the taste of wine gums in this one.
riktig trevlig rom..
bara ett sample den här gången,vill ha en hel flaska..
Dejlig duft af mild orange chokolade.
Smag: Let sødme, orange, chokolade. Den er let sprittet på den gode måde ☺
Let sødme, lidt mere sprittet eftersmag, lang og behagelig!
Med, ovoce, hladce teče do zobáčku. Hustá konzistence.
Jeg blev lidt skuffet med den her. Lidt sprittet og en mystisk eftersmag
My gift for Christmas. Rum different. Very aromatic. Most tastes good after an hour in a glass
Just another one for collection purpose, I cant have money in my pockey, they burn hole :) So better spend them on rum!
Spicey and smoky in your nose, but after that it's pure sweetness.
lite spritig för min smak...
Sweet in smell, bit sweet in taste but nothing for ladies. Its not elixir, it still has its rum power and with its orange and spices tones it makes a great combination for your tongue.
Nice sweet rum. Little to much sweet for me. Nice long aftertaste.
En god sød rom som bør nydes i stedet for et stykke slik, meget andet bidrager den vel ikke med.- afhængig af humør kan den virkelig forsøde en aften på sofaen... - fin begynder "rom".
This is one of the best zipper if you like a little bit sweeter rum, with this you could give grandma and she will like it. Even better together with chocolate.
while i liked XO reserve from Riise, i had bit different expectation. I wanted a sweet rum, cool, got it, but with one strong scent (maybe orange), i cannot even use it as aperitive. With coke, ok, drinkable. When i put few drops Zacapa in to it (yeah, call me barbarian), it got definitely better to something what i expected from the beginning. Seems it gets better with ice so the others here say, gonna try it.
The Riise Family Reserve is a marvellously round, sweet and mellow rum of amber colour. The smell strongly reminds me of the famous Hungarian Tokaji wine. If that doesn't mean anything to you, imagine a young fruity sherry or port with flavours of sweet grapes and hints of orange. Albeit maybe not the most complex or extensive olfactory impression of rums, its pleasingly sweet, remarkable balance perfectly hits my taste. If you let it breath for more than an hour the smell develops an even milder honeylike character.
The taste follows the smell. Sweet, fruity mellow flavour of late vintage grapes is followed by faint hints of dark chocolate that gives way to forest honey the longer it breathes. The Riise Family Reserve 1838 is the perfect choice for sweet rum aficionados.
