Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is too smoky for a rum, heavy flavours of rum that smash the palate to pieces. For some this will be amazing however for myself it's average and too harsh after burn. Would I drink a small sample of this yes, would I but a whole bottle, god no as probably would feel like smoking 1000 cigars
Sugar 0-5 GPL.
As with the big brother 20 year old version, this has a great aroma. That's where the great ends and the not so great takes over. I found that as far as the taste, it has too much wood and burnt sugar. Those tastes dominate the palate and you are left with a strong after burn that reminds me of cheap bar rum. Maybe I got a bottle from a bad barrel, but I don't think so.
Looks fantastic but has a strange aftertaste and is a little underwhelming

40% ABV. Big, caramel-y nose. A bit like a sugary sweet demerara. Very weak on the palate. Tastes of artificial watermelon, a la Jolly Rancher. Cloyingly sweet, when somehow I was expecting smoky. Thick mouthfeel. The finish is long, if sticky. Warms the throat. Further sips taste a little better. A better taster could tease out more flavors.
Boy was this a disappointment. For some reason I'd expected something more akin to a Havana Club. It's not terrible, just a waste of long aging, which always makes me sad. Also, 40%. A good introductory spirit, perhaps?

I tried the Mocambo 15y and 20y back-to-back and they are both as hideous as one can imagine. The 15y tastes horrific, leaves a nasty afterburn and you will reek tobacco and stale coffee for the rest of the day. You can't even mix the 15y with Coke, it's that bad.
The top 10 worst rums I have ever tried:
1. Barbancourt 4y / 8y / 15y
2. Bounty Dark Rum from Fiji
3. Stroh 40 / 80
4. Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
5. Villa Rica 23y
6. Mocambo 15y / 20y
7. Captain Morgan different variations
8. Don Papa 10y / 15y
9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
This rum is an unblended, single barrel aged rum in European white oak barrels. Dark rum aged for 15 years, this rum provides some smokiness, vanilla, spice, leather and tobacco notes with some heat. Nice rum for mixing or sipping neat if you like sweet rich flavored rums with an eloquent balance of flavor and intensity.
What would you expect from the land of the Tequila. sweet to the taste but not comparable to other 15yr old. Strong brown sugar taste
Alkohol: 40 %
Číslo sudu,lahve: Sud číslo 1551, lahev č.059
Aroma: Typicky rumová, hutná, koženě medová. Voní hodně sladce, s nádechem exotického koření a čokolády. (87 b)
Chuť: V chuti suchý, hořká čokoláda, koření a dřevo. Dochuť kořenitě dřevitá, hodně suchá. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnáno na vydařené rumové degustaci u josého v Hořicích, což byla neformální akcička domluvená na Whiskyfestivalu. Toto byl první panák ochutnávky, pro mě i první setkání s rumem z Mexika.
