Default Tanduay rum ... excellent

Just tried a new rum I never had before. Tanduay Superior 12 year old from the Phillipines. Yum! Smooth, not as sweet as Zacapa but similiar lack of burn. Excellent flavor. Has anyone else tried this rum?

In a previous life I lived in the Philippines and loved Tanduay rum. Distribution has been sketchy in the US but it's definitely worth trying if you can find it.

For SF Bay area folk, Winemax in Burlingame gets it and tries to have it in stock. That is where I bought my first bottle stateside. They also have another Phillipine rum. I'll check on the name. I first had the Tanduay in the PI while in the US Marines in Manilla.

Thanks rumdog007, we'll have to check it out. I suspect that you meant Weimax Wines & Spirits though, rather than Winemax.

Ive got a bottle of the Tanduay 1854, their 15 year old. Its a great rum! Medium bodied, nice complexities... I havent had it in a couple months, so I cant remember its flavor profile though.

A coworker of mine is from the Philippines, and brought me back 2 small bottles from her last trip. Alas, they're the cheaper stuff, and after my Bundaberg adventure I'm a bit wary of dipping in to them.

Last time that I visited Weinmax, they only had the cheaper stuff. But, the owner is an affable chap and will get anything for which he has a current distributor. BTW, the cheaper, baseline, is pretty good, too.

Smile Tanduay's range of rums

I realize this is an older discussion chain, however I saw the topic and thought I'd add a few bits & pieces of information here.

Tanduay has some fantastic rums, or rhums, as they say, but these aren't easy to find outside the Philippines.

Tanduay 1854 Premium 15yo Rhum

Nose: Fairly strong "rum" aroma, banana, a hint of oak, soft vanilla-notes. Clean, non-chemical and light bouquet.

Taste: Very soft and smooth, light, if not a bit thin. Again banana notes and roasted sugar, but also some oaky notes and vanilla. Easy and pleasant.

Aftertaste: Medium-long, smoothly sugary, and carrying the fruity banana notes with it.

Comments: Very soft & smooth light style rum, light gold in colour. In my opinion far better a product than the Tanduay 12yo, which has a slightly chemical and oddly artificial flavour profile (even the colur of it is strangely orange in hue).

Tanduay 18v. Rhum (1,5 litre Barrel for tourist market)


Nose: Clearly a blend of older rums: Raisiny, with oak, vanilla, soft and sophisticated, with a hint of smoke. Truly pleasant and fine bouquet. A touch of banana.

Taste: Silky smooth, then a touch of warming sharpness that brings with it some raisiny notes. Not unlike a fine sherry-aged whisky, sophisticated and oaky to a point with a hint of smoke. XO-cognac-like deep fruity "rancio" notes, leathery, oak coming again. Glorious experience! There's a depth of flavour, and oaky notes are not bitter in any sense. Dry but not woody. Adding water brings out smoky notes and oiliness.

Aftertaste: Long and pleasant, interestingly versatile. The XO-Cognac-like dark fruity richness combines nicely with some oaky notes.

Comments: This is a fabulous rum, no doubt. Sadly I have never seen it selling anywhere outside of Philippines.

Tanduay also made a very limited edition 23yo single barrel rhum which was bottled in hand-painted 1 litre bottles; This is a fabulous rum and a few bottles still emerge for sale in Makati business district, Manila in Hallmark store on occasion. Even the Pope has a bottle, so it must be heavenly stuff indeed.http://www.ministryofrum.com/forums/...cons/icon7.gif
Smile I have enjoyed this rum, and it is a beautiful masterpiece in its own right.
