Ron Montero Pálido (80-Proof)
This rum has a very attractive and shimmering citrine-amber color. The bouquet is rich and inviting, full of wet oak, raw sugar, ripe red apples and hints of vanilla.
Once in the palate, the rum’s taste is much lighter, less complex and not as sweet as the aroma suggested, but the experience is clean and enjoyable. The dominant flavors are those of apples and toasted nuts and the finish is defined by slightly bitter caramel and a touch of spice.
The rum has a nice aroma and a light body, making it perfect for cocktails, but lacks some of the complexity in the palate required to recommend it as a sipper.
