„Almost like the regular XO bit still too sweet for me. Almost like liquid candy in a kind of way.“

„Considered a rum-based spirit, this XO juice finished in Sauternes casks is extremely sweet. The nose flirts with fruit brandies like peach and apricot. Vanilla, sugar and caramel are not far behind, hinting at a tampered juice. There's no doubt about it on the palate: the Sauternes cask has taken its toll, resulting in a very syrupy, very sweet juice (sugar addition confirmed) that disrupts the palate. With its syrupy texture, sweet flavors and fruity alcoholic effluvia, this beverage tends to be nauseating after a few sips. The finish is no exception, being relatively short and linear along the same lines. There's a hint of chocolate, honey and cognac, but the taste doesn't change much. A drink where you need to move on quickly to avoid diabetes.“

„Extremely sweet rum, if you can even call it that. The very sweet almost sticky taste covers everything that might taste like rum.“

„Un des premiers rhums que l’on m’a offert. Depuis que j’ai goûté plein d’autres choses, mon palais a évolué et j’aime ce rhum beaucoup moins qu’avant. Trop sucré et longueur inexistante. Reste agréable et doux en bouche avec son côté liquoreux mais à mettre dans des palais de débutants !“

„Anfangs sehr alkohlisch beim ersten Schnüffeln, lässt aber nach. Aprikose dominiert. Ich muss an Schokoladenrosinen denken. Für mich typisch A.H. Rise. Was man riecht, schmeckt man. Nur statt Pfirsich schmeckt es jetzt nach Aprikose. Genau mein Ding. Eine toller Rum.“

„Nope, one of the worst. The taste of riise is there but weirdly twisted with some sort of synthetic sweet flavor I cannot describe. For me this one is a no no. Only positive about this one is a short finish. Thank god for that“

„Zeit mal wieder einen Riise zu probieren. Ich mag Süßrum und da ist natürlich Riise immer eine gute Wahl für mich. Bisher hat mich noch kein Riise enttäuscht, immer süß, aber dazu gibt es viele verschiedene Geschmacksrichtungen, je nach Sorte, von Frucht über Toffee bis zu Schokolade, etc. Alle sind lecker, aber nicht wirklich komplex. Dieser Riise gehört zur Frucht Abteilung. Fruchtig und süß, vor allem dominiert Pfirsich. Relativ mild und es mischt sich noch Toffee Geschmack zwischen den Pfirsich Geschmack. Lecker auf jeden Fall, aber eben halt Riise, da weiß ich nie ob man das wirklich als guten Rum bezeichnen kann.“

„Rumähnliches Likörgetränk Wie jeder „Rum“ dieser Marke extrem parfümiert und übersüßt. Nicht mit anderen Rums vergleichbar. Nicht zu empfehlen.“
