How does this rum taste?

A unique, divisive Batavia Arrack with a distinct red rice fermentation character. Mixed responses to its smoky, grainy notes recall whisky; some enjoy its dry, spicy profile in punches, while others find it medicinal and lacking complexity. Best as a mixer.

“This Indonesian rum is molasses based and distilled in pot stills. During the fermentation they use some red rice in the yeast. After distillation it’s aged in teak barrels before transported to the Netherlands where it’s transferred to oak barrels. The final blend consists of rum aged 8 months, 3, 5 and 8 years. The finish is medium long mostly depending on the alcohol content. I was expecting a lot more flavor of arrack and overall I think that everything is much too weak to catch my interest.”

“This rum smells as if it were better not to drink. A very chemical component accompanied by honey and fruit. It is best to let it breathe for some time. With some overcoming in the mouth, then much better with a dry, spicy, smoky and slightly fruity experience. Some similarity to Jamaica rum is there, but convince this rum can not.”

“Neujahrsvorsatz … Verkosten der staubigen Flaschen hinten im Regal. Und wie jedes mal wenn ich hier dran nippe: So schlecht ist er gar nicht. Ich habe lange in Indinesien gelebt und gearbeitet und war weit schlechtere Arracks gewohnt. Die Fermentation mit dem roten Reis ist speziell und muss man mögen. Der hier ist definitiv einer der besseren und kann pur verkostet werden. Besonders punkten tut er für mich aber gerade auch als Split in Punches und Cocktails. Was mich hier etwas stört ist die rauchige Getreidenote, die richtung Scotch geht. Und Scotch hasse ich nun mal”
