Nice Spanish style rum!
9 Jul '16
Bohemio is a borderline sipper(I say it is) but it really excels in mixed drinks and cocktails. A fair amount of oak but not overdone; a little dry but not too plain. Well rounded subtle sugarcane goodness.
The rum is aged 8 years in used whisky and bourbon barrels according to what I have read. You can definitely taste the tannins off the bat. After that fades a bit there is vanilla and caramel flavors mixed in with some pepperiness. There is some initial sweetness from what I assume is cane molasses but the finish is somewhat dry. Rather complex in my humble opinion.
This rum is very closer to being a sipping rum and for it can be for some folks. Personally I see its main strength to be as a mixer especially in fruit-based drinks as a nice counter for the fruitiness. A nice daiquiri could be produced using this rum.
