How does this rum taste?

The FRC Ecuador (Kirsch Whisky) Rum is disappointing. Despite 50 years of aging, it tastes overly sweet, flat, and lacks complexity. Heavy alcohol presence overshadows subtle hints of wood, caramel, and light fruit. Not worth the price.

“All right, I'll try the samples from zabo. Today No. 1: Uh, really not great. Tastes like neutral alcohol mixed with artificial peach flavoring. You can somehow (with some effort) recognize the Spanish style. But I don't find the alcohol well integrated and the rum somehow "thin" despite being over 50%. I don't even want to talk about the actual age of the rum. Perceived age 5 years at most. Too bad.”

“Franconian Tasting Gang Wenn nur mit Cola und Eis. Edit: Diese Aussage muss ich leider zurücknehmen. Es ist glaube ich so ziemlich mit meine einzige Rum Cola gewesen, die ich bisher weggeschüttet habe, weil ich diese nicht runterbekommen habe.”
