Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Though this is an affordable rum, the taste is well above the price point. I rate this a solid 9 (though I rated the 30 year a perfect 10).
Tastes and smells of sweet molasses, toffee, oak, brown sugar, spice, and vanilla. A little hint of bourbon as well, but not enough to be overpowering. A great rum for the money. Highly recommended!
I bought this rum on recommendation when I was searching for sweet rums. I was a bit disappointed when I was comparing this rum to other sweet rums that I like.
This rum smells sweet fruit and some smoke and barrel. When the rum rests for a while in the glass it has a very nice, mild, sweet, vanilla, caramel and smoky aroma.
In the mouth there is a lot of alcohol, spices and smoke. The sweetness is there but not much. I also sense barrel and a bit of whiskey. This rum is a bit more powerful and sharp than I am use too.
The aftertaste is long with smoke, sweetness and barrel.
I am not sure how to handle this rum. I will probably give it to a friend that can appreciate more than I can.
Something to discuss with a friend. Aromas that intrigue your mind. Cigar and spices? Well I ain't no pro but it tastes so damned good. Whisky is for sissies. Where's my parrot?
Sázka na javorový sirup v kombinaci s karamelem a podpořeným rozinkami, je pro mne neotřelá, ale velmi příjemná a rozpoznatelná vůně. Rum tedy získal zajímavý originální rukopis, což se rozhodně nepodaří každému. Vůně jsou vyvážené, rozeznáte jejich individualitu a zároveň žádná nenarušuje celkovou harmonii. V chuti citelně sladký, s karamelovo-rozinkovým tělem i známkou alkoholového podtextu, završený dlouhou dochutí. Vše působí na velmi vysoké úrovni, jako většina produktů z dílny značky Oliver & Oliver. Na druhou stranu nemohu ovšem také opomenout, že celkový dojem v mých očích bohužel snižují následné dva faktory. Za prvé pochybil marketing, při velmi lacině vyrobených samolepkách, kartonu i zátce, které degradují prezentační podporu produktu takové ceny a úrovně. A za druhé zejména fakt, že aby výrobce dosáhl kýženého výsledku, dosladil uměle rum o 46 gramů cukru na litr, aniž by se slůvkem zmínil. Proti tomuto skrytému triku se naštěstí postupně vzbouří jakékoliv trénovanější chuťové pohárky, které onu zvýšenou sladkost v ústech avizují již zhruba od třetí skleničky.
This one is similar to 30.. The 30 years is better but in such small differences that the 30 years old don´t make up for the pricetag in my oppionion..
Gillar den här!
Vacker mörk färg, söt fyllig doft och kraftig smak
Chuťově výraznější a kořeněnější nicméně plnohodnotně jemný a chuťově vyzrálejší než QRM 15-ti letá Solera.
It's a solera, didn't know this until after I drank it.
Very dark rum, probably added colouring. Sweet but not overly sweet. Notes of arrack, wood, caramel, dark fruits and hints of smoke. Smooth. It's a lot of sugar in this rum, 46 g/l, almost same amount as Diplomatico reserva exclusiva that one is way more sweet than this one.
Funny that most people (including me) rating this rum is swedish. hah. Skål!
This is one of my absolute favorites, second only to the 30 year version of QRM. So rich in its bouquet, full with caramel, nuts and sugarcane. The taste is also heavy with caramel and sweetness, sugarcane especially, but after tasting the 30 year old version, which has a slightly pronounced hint of tar I also found it in the 23 year QRM. Slight and very pleasant peat (if you can use that term on a rum). A little sharp alcohol sting, but slowly sipping this one in your favorite couch on a Friday night is pure heaven. One of my top choices!
More flavour then other Solera rums. Next step in a rum adventure.
Härligt fruktig, lite lätt rökig, alldeles lagom söt. En klar favorit.
na devět málo, na deset moc, luxusní vůně, luxusní chuť, ždibek k dokonálosti
Nice sipping rum! I get chockolate from this one. Quite sweet mouthfeel and long aftertaste. No need for ice!!
Not as sweet and smooth as expected as e.g. Diplomatico. Has kind of alcohol taste with strange alcohol aftertaste, which I didn't really like. Can't appreciate it, but some people I know likes it, depends on your taste.
Hodne mi pripomina Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.
Hodne uhlazeny, sladky, na konci zahreje.
nice bottle, nice colour of rhum
Flavour is nice, nit very sweet, caramel, honey oak.
Taste is perfect balanced, oak, honey, little bit of vanilla, Not too sweet, no disturbances in taste...It's typical O&O quality and typical O&O taste.
This is a rum that along with it´s bigger brother gets a lot of hype, so it is of course one that I had to taste. While it did not live up to the high praises it is still a damn good rum.
Nose: Caramel, vanilla and oak
Taste: Thick and smooth sweetness with a lot of volume and body to it
Overall: After all the hype I was initially left a little disappointed, but when I tasted like any other rum, I still found it to be quite good. A little on the sweeter side, but very smooth and pleasant.
My first favourite rum. Still one of my favorites.
In the sweet part of the rum tasting map
Denne yngre "orm" er ganske ok lidt mere krads, men ellers sød som 30 års
A price worthy rum in Sweden now sold in the same 50cl bottle as Unhiq.
Nice aroma of sweetness and nuts. The taste is quite sweet (vanilla) with significant notes of barrel.
As a summary it’s powerful and sweet in a quite nice combination.
Right now I don’t have it on my Spanish shelf. Instead I have the Quorhum 30, but haven’t tested it yet. Maybe the “23” will come back after that test.
Inte en favorit. Passar bättre med cola än ren. Kommer ikväll inte att köpas igen
In a word... buttery. In more words.... buttery with loads of vanilla, some cinnamon. French toast in a glass without being sickengly sweet.
I really enjoyed this one, lovely scent and nice sweet taste, more smooth than the younger 12 and 15 YO.
To start with, the bottle looks fantastic. This was one of the first bottles of better rums that I was recommended when I started getting more interested in rum. I love how it smells, how it looks and how it tastes.
It smells of many different spices, yet it's sweet. It made me very curious to how it would taste and I was not disappointed.
It tastes as it smells but a lot more. Everything about it just explodes and it becomes so much and its just lovely to sit and experience a whole world of spice and sweetness. It clearly tastes of cask and but still has a lot of other flavors such as chocolate, orange, coffee and vanilla. Loved it at first and I still do. It sits at the top of my cabinet has been there since it first came there!
