This nice sipper has to rest for a while before nosing or you'll get a punch of alcoholic blast. The nose is wonderfully smooth even velvety I'd say. Smoky wood and fruity with toffee and spices. The palate is complex and very well balanced with smoky oak and spices and a hint of the cognac cask it was finished in. The finish is long and sweet with spices and coffee and once again a hint of the cognac cask.

Haven’t tried this bottle in years and it’s been in the back of the cabinet behind more interesting bottles. Obviously my sweet tooth days are over. This is too rounded and tamed down by the high sugar content for me. Also I’m used to a lot higher ABV nowadays. … now a year later and I agree with myself.

Durchaus gut und trinkbar, aber natürlich süß. Bei Zacapa stimmt der Preis aber einfach nicht.

Früher einer meiner Lieblinge, inzwischen mir zu süß! Dennoch ein leckerer und runder Rum.

A wonderful mellow full flavour sipping rum ideal for a cold winter night in front of an open fire. It is a slow drinker as the finish, that needs to be savoured, is long and full.

Nectar from heaven. A bold, complex and inviting nose, warm sweetness and fruits, followed by a velvety smooth yet powerful flavour profile, ranging from burnt toffees to spices and cedar woods. Delightfully playful with a long, distinctive finish that evolves further from subtle spicy sweetness to a final bitter orange 3rd act.

Many years ago, this was the Rum that drawed me away from single malts. Smooth, balanced, subtle sweetness. Whatever one might say, it’s a very balanced, smooth and of course easy sipping rum. But is Jamaica really that better because we feel more cool when drinking the hyped stuff? Is it bad because it’s not main stream anymore (well, in the world’s bars it is). Of course Diageo didn’t do any good to it. Nose is subtle and almost not present, but there is almonds, caramel, a smooth flavor. On the palate very balanced, smooth, chocolate, mocca, a nice sweetness, caramel. And even a smooth finish. It’s not challenging, not complex, no esters (but most destillers of whatever spirit don’t want esters as with any other alcohol than rum it’s a sign for bad quality - even if i like them)

Saturé de sucre, pour les amateurs de rhums sucré... Personnellement sans intérêt

Ordentlicher Solera. Aber viel zu teuer.

Viel zu dünn. Im Abgang merkt man den zugegebenen Zucker. Teurer Fusel. Mehr nicht.
