Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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....
I know Mexico is known for their Tequilas but I had to try at least one Rum produced by that country and I chose the Mocambo 20 yr Rum. Having read the reviews I kept an open mind and my first impression of this spirit was the beautiful dark colour of the spirit, followed by aromas of coffee, dark chocolate and tobacco. On my first sip the cinnamon flavour came through along with those previously mentioned and my first sample left me wondering whether I liked it or not. The more I sipped on it the more I acclimatized to the unusual flavours. This is not my typical rum but it nevertheless surprised me and the unique taste adds to my rum collection. better than I expected. Not a rum I would drink on a daily basis but a nice change from usual flavours.
Fun bottle with a good story, but also a rich natural bourbon barrel flavor and soft mouthfeel and caramel in the nose.
I want to like this rum, but honestly there is nothing special about it. There are cheaper rums with more complexity to be had at a better price.
Dark amber, intense colour, with hints of red.
Rich syrupy legs.
Intense and complex nose.
Nuts, caramel, dried fruits, chocolate and vanilla.
Expressive nose, well integrated alcohol and good quality of aromas.
Strong and very sugar concentration
Syrupy body with a dry minerality and a winey layer.
Powerful on palate yet elegant and dry.
Flavour reflects the nose.
Refined and well-balanced flavours, alcohol is not aggressive.
Don't spit it as soon as you taste it, it gets better...bitter, smoky, nasty rum...but just don't expect something extraordinery..
Vuně velmi sladka po ochutnaní velmi řízný, lehce hrejivy. Chut dobra, ale dlouho stoji na jazyku. Chut po vinu zustava na patře.. určitě zvláštní
Dunkles Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase dominierende Holztöne mit Karamell als Begleiter.
Im Gaumen bleibt das Holz dominant, gefolgt von einem alten Karamell.
Im Abgang scharf mit einem süssen Karamell.
Ein Mexikaner der erlebt werden will. Eher für Fortgeschrittene.
Dark amber in the glass.
In the nose dominant wood tones with caramel as a companion.
On the palate, the wood remains dominant, followed by an old caramel.
In the finish sharp with a sweet caramel.
A Mexican who wants to be experienced. Rather for advanced.
This is a pretty good rum from Mexico. Like most Mexican rums I've tried, this has a lot of added... 'character'.
Smells and tastes of heavy oak, leather, tobacco, coffee, dark chocolate, nougat, figs, pepper, cinnamon, and brown sugar. It's got a lot going on and is quite nice. It doesn't have a traditional rum flavor, though it's a great example of what I've come to expect from Mexican rum. Definitely worth a try!
Much better than I expected, still not amazing but it was a good buy for the price
I have tasted over 700 aged rums over the past 15 years and I know the Mexicans can produce some amazing tequila's, but this supposedly 20 year rum tastes horrific, leaves a very bad afterburn and you will reek tobacco leaves and stale coffee for the rest of the day. You can't even mix this with Coke, it's that bad. The bottle looks artsy, but the liquid inside is pure rat poison.
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
I am into A.H. Riise, but sometimes I need a different taste to realize where home is....
I tried Mocambo 20 years after reading the Ratings. Smooth at the beginning, dark chocolate and cinnamon on the finish. A tiny bit of pepper perhaps. very interesting.
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!
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.
