Getting ready to meet up with friends at Oops in Aarhus for a nice Jamica tasting. The bar has break even on all their rums of which they have a loooooot. Thus I’ve decided to sample the Santiago de Cuba 500 Anniversary rum because that’ll be another once in a lifetime rum.
After the event the chef at the bar has created a burger where the sauce is made with Jamaican rum as well and I’ll get back with more information later
That sounds like a really nice event. Keen to hear also about the burger
There are worse ways to spend your Saturday. Have fun and let one or the other impression shine through
I wanna know what this Jamaica slayer is
Sweet and fruity.
Light and fruity. Well balanced. Draws very nice curtains in the glass. Short fruity finish.
Fruity and more power in the profile. Spicy and nicely warm. Light curtains in the glass.
Light floral touch.
Nice curtains and fruity light funky nose with some varnish. Warm and spicy palate with overripe fruits. Very long finish. After resting more wood pops out.
This one I have tasted so meny times I can’t remember. Very good pure bit also in mixers. Fruity with nice funk and very light wood. Pineapple and overripe fruits. Thick and slow moving curtains. Esters become more apparent when resting.
2800 esters, wooooow, like a nuclear bomb on the palate.
Overripe fruits, esters, flowers and grass.
Ester and light wood mixed with rotting fruits. Lightly dry with natural sweetness.
Heavy with workshop notes and a floral touch. Tannins are strong ad a dry palate. Thick slow moving curtains.
Good starter, looks like it will be a hard day for you
Now it’s time to relax and I just ordered a burger with rum sauce and the join g rum is this one
Balanced and fruity. Warm/spicy on the palate with a very long finish.
Here’s the side dish.
Light and balanced with fruit and light licorice and caramel. The palate is complex and well balanced yet light with a herbal note. Beautiful and slow moving curtains. Incredible long finish despite the low ABV.
Very alcoholic and woody, even after 60 mins of rest it’s still unbalanced in the ABV.
Light and well balanced with nice Agricole and fruit notes. Light wood notes mingle well with the other elements.
hoffe die Preisangabe ist in DK und nicht in Euro
Thank you for the report.
Can you share more information‘s about the 2,8k Ester Rum?
Where does it came from and what is it used for?
Thank you in advance
@RumDog unfortunately I can’t reveal where it’s from but lets say it like this, 1600 esters is a bomb, 2800 is a nuclear reactor going off in your mouth. Nuclear not in a bad way, but intensely fruity, warm and fresh at the same time
Sounds cool. Do you have any idea it will be available for us in the future?
It’s illegal to export rum with more than 1600 esters, so that would be a no, unfortunately
O.k. so we must start a trip to Jamaica.
Can you reveal if this Rum was made for drinking or as a aroma for Food or fragrance?
It’s made for both rum and fragrance for cooking etc.
I was told they make super high ester and then water it down to the mark they want
