Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Pretty well balanced with only one bad thing - aftertaste was really short.
Gold of Mauritius. 5 Solera.
The bottle: Round at the bottom and square at the top. Neat.
Glass: . Dark tone in the glass that shifts in little dark red. Smells of hazelnut.
Mouth: Mild and balances well in the mouth but still lacking some flavor.
Aftertaste: A light taste of oak barrel will arrive when swallowing. After that the hazelnut taste arrivies. However, it is a fairly short finish.
Summary: It smells absolutely wonderful but it¨s taste is a not that on that standard. A very good rum given that it does not have such a long barrel time.
Nice one as being 5 y. solera rum.
Coffee smell, Candied fruit, inside feeling
Chocolate, Vanilla and Caramel.
I like this one.
I initially mostly smelled ethanol and didn't expect a great taste from a 5-year old Rum. I was wrong! Intense and smooth taste for a 5-year old. Sweet (but not overly sweet (compared to a Ron Zacapa 23 or Plantation XO)) with a nice nutty hazelnut aroma. Definitely worth a buy.
Rád koupím znovu. Hodně různých chutí ... Ovoce, káva, ...
I was really surprised tasting just 5 yeara matured rum. It a s nearly so good as comparable rums of 20 years aging. For sure i am considering 8-9.... Price argues for 8 anyway... Exceptional one
Provades i Rombaren på Stockholm beer and whisky. Söt, len lite choklad. Kryddig. Bra
Rum tasting with my buddy in Tampere continued with Gold of Mauritius 5y. Very nice bottle and label design. Golden color. Plenty of oakiness and some vanilla to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Quite a strong burn at the end.
Also has a lot of flavour, but has more burn than the Gold of Mauritius Dark.
Doux et sucré (sans abus, mais plus que normalement), la banane est très présente en bouche, avec des notes "fondues" de noix et de tabac, le goût de tabac qui perdure assez longuement. Rhum de qualité, peut-être un peu moins dans mes goûts personnels.
Sofet and sweet (without abuse, but more than normal), the banana is very present in the mouth, with melted notes of nuts and tobacco, the aftertaste of tobacco lasting quite long. Quality rum, maybe a little less in my personal taste.
Nice bottle... great colore... 5 years old but really nice friendly taste.
The aroma is huge with ethanol and artificial banana flavorings. Not expecting much from flavor, but it surprised me positively! Sweet but very easy to drink. Way too easy... Honey.
Ce rhum sent super bon, mais une fois dans la bouche..... Je sais pas, il est peut être dans mes goût.
Rhum très bien équilibré.
Peu amateur des rhums de l'île Maurice, ce rhum est une belle surprise.
En bouche, des notes de tabac et de noix sont présentes.
Les notes finales sont longues et tendent sur les épices.
Had it in my sheld for about 2 years. Opened it up to pare with some fresh made mauritian masala with faratas. It goes well. Didn't expext such a great taste for a 5 year solera. I think i can taste some coffee and salt, which i really like. It is a favorite now!
Pekna barva, chut si nepamatuji.

Sweet nutty, chocolate taste. Notes wood and vanilla. Good sipping rum.
Příjemná vůně, sladká chuť, lehce nakouřená, velice zajímavé pití... Nechápu, jak dokážou něco takového udělat během pěti let - i když metodou solera...
Spøjs rom fra et mindre kendt område. Har svært ved at blive klog på den men lander på 6, selvom jeg nærmest har en ny mening hver gang jeg smager den.
A strong and yet smooth rum. Not my favorite but would definitely drink it again.
Whaum der havde jeg nære mistet min næsehår. Den er meget sprittet i duften.
Krydderet i smagen og en lang sød eftersmag. Ikke nogen speciel stor rom oplevelse.
Well balanced taste, aroma with experience. Connected with Rome.
Not bad for a 5 but has a dryness that I'm really not fan of. Almost reminded me of a smoother Bundy.
This a very fine rum for sipping for a 5 year. Good well compete with older rums. At the smell, there a note of hazenut and banana. At the taste, i found that there was a predominant taste of banana which caught me by suprise with a hint of smoked vanilla and coconut. The only downside is the short ending which lacks that complexity. But i would still say one of the best rum i have tried at this stage. A must in a bar but still a bit expensive.
