Summary

The Antigua rum is a light Foursquare with notes of coconut, citrus, oranges and peaches. It has a Spanish-rum sweetness and weak coffee notes. The nose is sweet with vanilla, coconut, tropical fruits and a hint of herbs and brioche. On the palate there is a touch of woody bitterness which adds complexity. Reviews were positive but some found the rum too sweet or the alcohol too present.

Another release where the price tag is really good compared to what you get. Fruity with natural sweetness and caramel. The palate is nice and warm as I like it and the chocolate and coffee balances the overall profile. I had to rest it for a good while before the flavours really came through.

Leckeres Geschmacksprofil. Intensität und Komplexität sind mir für das höhere ABV aber zu niedrig. High Congener gefiel mir besser.

Spanisches Profil mit Schokoladen/Kokosnoten. Alkohol könnte besser eingebunden sein und es fehlt etwas an Komplexität.

Probiert als 5cl Sample und mein erster Rum aus Antigua. Die Nase erinnert mich sehr stark an Vorweihnachtszeit. Kokos, Vanille, Muskat und Karamell erinnern ans Plätzchen backen bei Glühwein. Ist gefühlt Barbados sehr ähnlich aber durch diese Assoziationen doch irgendwie anders. Geschmacklich ein eher simples Profil, das aber sehr rund und stimmig ist. Alles in allem sehr lecker, aber kein Komplexitätswunder. Ein schöner schokoladiger Abgang.

Sweet nose with vanilla, coconut, some tropical fruits and a hint of herbs and brioche (?) in the back. Similar on the palate with a touch of woody bitterness embedded in the mix which adds a bit more complexity. Very enjoyable overall.

Nez doux et gourmand sur la coco, le caramel et des touches vanillées. On pourrait penser à un rhum de la Barbades. En bouche, c'est brûlant d'abord. Puis de nouveau coco et caramel sont présents avec en arrière plan une touche d'amertume boisée et végétale. Alcool trop présent pour moi pour bien apprécier.

Le nez est peu expressif contrairement à la bouche. C'est gourmand et intense ! Un petit citron vert passe par là pour rafraîchir le tout et exciter la bouche. La final est plutôt moyenne sur du cappuccino, tiramisu.

C: Gold S: The first sense is sharp, typical of column still Spanish style. It’s a bit closed. After 10 minutes I smell coconut and a pungent citrus note I sometimes get in agricoles. Oranges and peaches as well although in less volume. M: Spanish-rum-sweetness not always pleasure but in this case it works “just” fine. I also get weak coffie and again coconut. F: Not too long with some with pepper. I would describe this Antigua rum as a light Foursquare with a twist, whether you read it as a pungent citrus agricole note or High Congener. Questions: Is there other rums like this one on the market? No, unless you can find the Velier 2012. Is this a good rum for beginners getting into Singel Cask/Cask Strength? I would say Yes! Is this a rum for me? No, too sweet!
