Well well, curiosity... Cheap party rum, can't expect so much!
Místy podivně nasládlá nevůně syrového alkoholu slabě maskovaná kořenitostí se při vydýchání neustále zhoršuje, až připomíná typickou morganovskou lacinost (myšleno verze OSG). Následná ethanolová chuť pak trápí vaše chuťové pohárky, aniž by náznakem nabídla jakoukoliv příjemnou složku, což znamená, že kvalita tedy bohužel odpovídá i ceně (20 000 Pesos - tj. 150Kč/375ml). A jelikož lokální kolumbijské alternativy na tom nejsou o mnoho lépe (Bogota – Ron Santa Fe, Santa Marta – Ron Caňa apod…) musí vám postačit tento Ron z nechvalné domoviny Pabla Escobara jako základní rumová pohotovost (je totiž k dostání kdekoliv) při cestách po krásách Kolumbie. Reálné hodnocení 3,5/10 kloní nahoru pouze odvaha za nulový cukr.
This is a good rum for making coctails like Cuba Libre with some lemon. Girls in Colombia like it mixed with coke.
Con un comportamiento maduro se presenta este ron super joven, pero que nos demuestra un buen resultado en su proceso.
I think it is quite popular around Medellin only. Bad rum.
Sugar: 0 to 3 GPL. This rum is similar to Bacardi white rums or Captain Morgans, or any other "Well" rums in your average bar. It is definitely a mixing rum. It's a young rum with a decent but Raw rum aroma. In tasting this rum it started out as okay but then there was something in the taste that told me to stop and put it with mix. It might have been that my palate was compromised by earlier samplings of my top shelf rums, but value is a lesson you have to learn over and over. This rum didn't have that harsh chemical taste that are present in some of the cheaper rums I have reviewed. I am certain there are much better rums to be found in Columbia for sipping, however if you wanted a rum and coke, this would be a good rum to use.
One of those rums to drink if your need something fast. Not a rum to enjoy neat as the limited aging hasn't been able to mellow and flavor this rum. An inexpensive mixer from Columbia that is just that...inexpensive! Strong burn and not too mellow or flavorful.
Similar to low end Bacardi rums...
don't expect much from that...simple ok for party mixing. nothing else.
Not the greatest country for rum but there where some decent brands. If I remember correctly I mostly mixed this one with coca cola. It had a nice note of chocolate when drinking neat :-)
Así lo defino fuerte con carácter y de matiz a café tostado
Rien d'exceptionnel mais se laisse déguster pure...
It others in the Ron Medellin line are available, upgrade. I think this deserves at least a 5-rating. Good for a CubaLibre or other mix.
This was a very gracious gift from some friends who traveled to Colombia. It has a hot, almost spicy palate with a hint of smokiness. It bears some similarity to scotch, but without the long burn. Where this could really shine would be in sweet mixed drinks to calm the sugar a bit.
My first experience with Ron Medellin was in Medellin, Colombia enjoying it with friends so the sent and taste of this rum always brings great nastalgia.
As far as my taste in rum, i prefer sweet and full of character and depth. Ron Medellin is not one of those rums. It is a light rum with a slight escence of bourbon. This is a rum that I enjoy mixing with cola and drinking with my Colombian friends while we reminisce about the artwork of Fernando Botero and the days of Pablo Escobar.
This is not a rum for sipping.
