How does this rum taste?

Takamaka St. André 8 Years Old Rum is a mixed experience. A sweet aroma with notes of coffee, wood, and spice, yet some find it underwhelming, bland, and not value for money. Suitably smooth for easy sipping or mixing.

“This rum from the Seychelles is made from sugar cane juice, but they don’t call it Agricole cause they say that their methods are different. I think that the best thing about this rum is the aroma which is very nice, in the mouth it’s then quite bland but easy to drink.”

“Un rhum décevant. Le nez semble prometteur avec des notes de colle, de fruits, d’épices et de bois, avant de tomber complètement dans l’oubli une fois en bouche. Très fade et évasif en bouche, on pourrait s’y méprendre à boire de l’eau caramélisée. La finale, tout aussi peu mémorable, ne laisse pratiquement rien percevoir.”

“Da kann ich den bisherigen Bewertungen nicht ganz zustimmen. Zwar ist er sicherlich keine Offenbarung und wahrlich auch kein Preis-Leistungskracher, aber trotzdem hat er was. Leichte Kaffenoten, sauer auf der Zunge, relativ holzig und würzig (nicht unangenehm) - man findet einiges. Definitiv ok(+)”
