I think this is my favorite rum. I’ve been a whiskey guy for a while now, but I’ve recently gotten into rum. This is a very “whiskey” rum. The Smokey flavor is so nice, yet sweet enough to sip on and not hurt too bad. The 12 year is amazing, and I highly recommend as well. But this one is wonderful, especially for its price.
Love the tobacco and leather elements, deep complex flavors develop from the first sip and reveal themselves over a long finish. Lime notes toward the end. Very different. Looking forward to buying a bottle.
Pretty good. A little over-leathery and some spice and smoke that overpowers the aftertaste. Still, a pretty good sipper. Rocks made it open up a bit but also made it a little too shallow. Did get rid of the overpowering spice and leather notes though.
This is how rum is supposed to taste. Smooth and easy to drink with hints of wooden barrels. Sweet but not too sweet and no bad after taste like you get with cheaper bottles. Aged is the way to go and this is my new go to rum!
I'm not a traditional Rum connoisseur, so my palate may be different from the, so called experts. However, I do love a great Bourbon and Afrohead XO 15 year rum give me notes of vanilla, caramel, and sugar cane that out of this world. I like to follow each swallow with a small sip of water, which totally brings out the flavor notes is the remarkable distilled spirit. The fact that it's aged in Jack Daniels barrels is evident and highly appreciate. This has become one of my all time favorite drinks...neat and never mixed. I'm such a huge fan, that the regulars in my cigar lounge call me the un-official spokes person for Afrohead, what a huge compliment.
Beautiful robust flavor with mossy oak/peat undertones.. Sweet & heady upfront with caramel/toffee undertones & a Very smokey finish. Very good, but I Prefer the Afrohead 7 year personally. Think the aged flavor here is a bit too much. Like Laphroaig, (one of my hubby's favorites) kind of a kick in the teeth.
