Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I love the bottle presentation and the fact that no two bottles are alike, similar to Wild Tiger Special Reserve rum from India. A single cask rum similar to its younger 15 year old sibling. Some bitterness and dryness coming from the leather, cigar leave, and woody taste. The taste is somewhat bitter and tastes like dried fruit. Would do well in a Cuba Libre or other mixed drinks.
Bon rhum provenant directement du Mexique et qui réchauffe encore la gorge malgré une soirée bien arrosée.
Vista: Caramelo oscuro, ámbar
Olfato: Dulce con una gran intensidad de frutas secas, uva, cereza y ciruela, agradable presencia de notas de vainilla, madera húmeda, nuez y moka. Toque de caramelo
Gusto: Uva, ciruela, nuez con un toque de chocolate y café.
Final: Largo y sedoso con un toque de caramelo y ligeramente amargo
The bottle is amazing, but sadly the rum inside is not to my liking at all. I only sampled this once in a bottle shop, though.
Seems more a cachaca than a rum. Nice bottle, but disappointing flavor for the price. Have it as a 4.5 on my chart.
Always wary when they make a fancy bottle. Middle of the road IMO. A bit of spice at the start.
This Rum is very nice smooth like a good scotch no after bite.
Sugar est. 5 -10 GPL
This rum has a great aroma in the glass. Vanilla, Caramel, Wood, and raisins or perhaps Port are the predominant aromas detected. In regards to taste this rum starts off very smooth and semi sweet at first, but has a harsh aftertaste that I would compare to burnt sugar or molasses mixed with old coffee and whiskey. Great start, but a disappointing finish leading towards a heartburn.
The bottle is a unique package and looks good on the shelf but that's not enough for me to buy a second bottle. but for me this rum is a mixer and not for sipping neat.
Průměrný rum, který není ničím zajímavý. Není špatný, ale to je od rumu za tu cenu málo.
Ron normal, nada fuera de lo normal, sabor fuerte y obscuro, lo más llamativo y bonito es su botella!
I won't spend much time describing it, had a glass 2 days ago, and will never try it again...The beautiful and original bottle will look forever great on my shelf ! The taste I m trying my best to gorget about it. Nothing worked to rince it's aweful taste. Even coke tasted bitter...
The nose in the other hand was quite pleasant, sweet and without any alcohol smell....
At $50 CAD a bottle, it a steal. My first impression was tequila. It was only subtle, but it caught me off guard. It took some time with it... and as it turns out, I am a big fan. Was my first Mexican rum, but opened my eyes to exploring more. Beautiful dark colour and a unique flavour that I truly enjoy. Hope I can find it when I go looking again!
Your initial reaction is 'look at that bottle, this has to be a great rum'. Nice dark color, long legs.
Dip your nose into the glass and you will find a pleasant sweet scent of caramel/toffee and mocha... Tasting it and you will find that sweet toffee taste is very thin and the coffee taste dominates. And it's a bit artificial coffee taste. Like when something is coffee flavored but not coffee. Or a left over coffee cup with dried coffee on the bottom. To me that didn't do it. If the caramel/toffee taste would be much richer and being the dominating taste I would have felt the coffee taste would add to the experience but this doesn't work.
Por el color obscuro de este ron se espera un producto mejor, no tiene sabor
Commentaire suivra dans les prochains jours. Une autre dégustation du produit et à venir.
Wonderful vanilla and caramel aroma in the bottle. Translates well in the flavor. As it hits the tongue one is awash in a complex series of flavors. Some sweetness but not even close to be overwhelming. Very smooth. No burn. Just a nice lingering warmth fading slowly revealing a vanilla and oak aftertaste. Definitely a sipping rum. I prefer this straight up. I think even on the rocks would diminish this fine rum.
nice sipping rum, not up to par with the big ones, but a nice change. different.
Tried a flight of 5 Mocambo rums. Wasn't expecting much from a Mexican rum but this was nice. Wouldn't rush out and buy a bottle but definitely would drink again
It does have a lot of smokiness to it for a rum but still has some of that burnt sugar sweetness. To me this rum has a very distinct flavor and is one of my favorites so far for a sipping rum.
I found that this rum has a smoky flavor that reminded me of scotch whiskey. It has a very clean finish and didn't burn add it went down. I have recommended this rum to the CEO of my company and he was impressed with it.
Vieilli 20 ans, ce rhum mexicain est à l'image de la bouteille qui le contient: unique. Son goût est épicé sans être boisé. A essayer ne serait-ce que pour admirer la bouteille.
Different, interesting... Cinnamon is somewhat overpowering. Astringent.
The aroma is amaretto but a little astringent. Fairly light body. Nice flavor again with amaretto but turns very harsh very fast. Better than a mixing rum but barely good enough as a sipping run.
I see some low ratings of this rum and I have to disagree. While it may not be the best it's a solid performer. Well balanced, polished finish, amazing bottle.
