This overproof rum is realy suitable for cocktails. You just use a small amount to get a nice taste in your cocktail. Personally i dont realy like the line of don q, as they are to dry for me. In cocktails they are good enough
Better than Bacardi White 🙂. Pleasant sugary nose, like Brown sugar or caramel. Not sweet tasting, slight burn at the neck of the mouth.
We used it for mojitos though, and it worked very well.
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.
At first this rum was a little on the harsh side when sipped straight. But with each revisitation; neat, with a splash of water or more, or mixed, the taste improves by revealing its great depth of subtle flavors to the palate. The flavor persists when diluted to give a softer, subtle taste. I am surprised by my growing appreciation for this rum and will continue to keep this label in stock.
Of you drink rum often, you will pick this one out of 100 or more. Realy full of vanilla and Orange. Great to use as a marinade when griling pineaplle. You should try!!
Sweet with spicy aftertaste that "playing" in your throat. My next purchase. Buy it and if you dont want it send this masterpiece to me. Try it neat.
