How does this rum taste?

Ryoma Rhum Japonais: a polarizing Japanese spirit with sake-like qualities, noted for its sweetness and subtle vegetal hints. Some find it uniquely complex, while others miss the tropical rum punch. Best approached with an open mind to its offbeat nature.

“I think this rum is one of the most misunderstood ones in the market. I've been travelling in Japan and tried a lot of their spirits and it with that in mind I scored this rum. The nose starts off with whisky and sake, yes, sake. Then the vegetal and grassy notes appear with some oak and caramel. The palate is light yet complex with sake and Agricole notes. Later you have sake and the vegetal notes mixed with smoke and oak. The finish is medium long with sake and vegetal notes to it. The price is high for such a young rum, but nothing from Japan is cheap.”

“Tasted only once and I didn't like it, alcoholic in the nose and in the mouth. Sake scent, as if there was a problem...Then, a little better with herbal notes. It has nothing of a tropical rum.”

“Besides Nine Leaves, there are quite tasty drops from Japan. On the nose, it goes in the direction of Demerararum á la Pussers. Feels in the mouth at first like Agricole, which was then mixed with dirty molasses. For me, this results in aromas of coffee, caramel and dark chocolate. In the finish you realize then why there is point deduction here, with 40% this rum is unfortunately quite weak out back and a few% more would have given the quite delicious flavors the necessary power.”
