Extremely Smooth. Origenes Reserva Especial 18 Year Old proudly shows a brilliant, polished cherrywood color that radiates depth and golden copper hues from various perspectives around my tasting glass. Swirl gently, and a crown of beads appear at the upper reaches of the trace liquor, then long-lasting legs form on the sides of the glass, in an entertaining prelude to a sniff.
Breathe delicately, and you are rewarding with an beautiful bouquet of caramel. Somehow Im reminded of the (pleasant) smells of Moroccos food bazaars when sniffing Origenes 18. I sense aromas of honey, tea, soft cardamom and tanned leather, desert-fruit scents like dates, figs, tart stone fruit, all supported by a soft underlying scent of oak from the used bourbon barrels. Taste, and the full bodied rum quickly envelopes your tongue in flavors of caramel and dates, and the aromas sensed earlier, ending with a full-length, tapering sweet finish. Adding a few drops of water or a small chip of ice amplifies the aromas, brings out the bourbon notes in the flavors and dries the finish somewhat.
