“Complex, ever-changing nose with layered tropical fruit and aged spices.”

Introducing the remarkable "Kaiman" rum, a limited edition blend produced by the independent bottler Compagnie des Indes, with only 500 bottles in existence. This exquisite rum, aged for 46 years, originates from multiple countries and boasts a 46% ABV. Its enchanting aroma is characterized by red fruits, sour cherry, leather, herbal, and nutty notes, while the palate offers a complex blend of barrel, leather, spice, and herbal flavors. Rum enthusiasts from the RumX community appreciated the ever-changing nose, elegant blend, and unique character that reflects its age. However, they noted that it would have benefitted from a higher ABV to add intensity and thickness to the taste. Overall, the "Kaiman" rum is considered a collectible masterpiece with great complexity and intriguing taste.

“Retasting this one I admit that I would really have loved this rum to have a higher ABV because I think it would have greatly benefitted the rum. The nose is very fruity with burnt sugar and some grass to it (lile in a Jamaican rum). The palate is wonderful and has a bite on top of the fruity/spicy note. A lot of nice oak but not too much. The finish is long and slightly bitter with oak and ginger.”

“In view of the blended ingredients, the expectation is high - but unfortunately, the rum can almost never keep up with that. Thus, not only the motive for the marrying remains obscure, but also the dilution in particular. Unfortunately disappointing, even if the rum is of course basically good drinkable.”

“The nose is really nice and ever changing throughout the tasting. Actually I‘m surprised how intense and complex it is given the rum‘s pretty low ABV. Unfortunately, the rest can’t exactly hold up to the very nice nose. My main issue is the rather thin feel/texture. However, the palate is interesting and complex. It has quite a few things to discover and is in no way overwhelmed by wood. This is a very well made, elegant blend”
