mild Barbados rum
7 Jul '18
nice colour of honey. Mild flavor of orange and vanilla. Palate opens with minimal burn and little spiciness combined with vanilla and raisin. Midsize/short finish. So overall a clean, mild rum. I rate this rhum with a “6” but in fact it does deserve some better grade so real rating would be between 6.1 - 6.4.
Ron Cuate Gran Reserva 13 y - too artificial, but mild and fruity

i smell banana, orange peel, little oak, peach.
i taste a glycerol-like-creamy body, fruity notes with some heavy tunes of orange and peach. less spice.
3/10. add 5 points if you like rums like the don papa, riise rum.
though the heavy fruit notes are not as strong as in don papa and riise rum they are very intense and the first impression on this rum. i love babados rum, but this is awful, in my opinion. this is a sugar rum with a helping hand to the fruit notes, i think.
