Mocambo is a Mexican rum, made by Licores Veracruz. Website: http://licoresveracruz.com. Aged 15 years in white oak barrels. Bought it for $34.99 US down here in California. It's 40%.
The bottle is quite understated, with no particular aspect worth drawing attention to.
Upon opening, the plastic cap which holds the cork stopper, partially broke apart/disintengrated in my hand. Trauma from packing? Cheap plastic? Who knows, doesn't affect the rum...well hope not.
The smell is quite pleasant. A nice soft caramel presentation. No appreciation of an alcoholic burn on the nose. Not a whole lot else to report. Not bad for 35 bucks so far.
For the taste of the rum, initially there's a nice woody caramel character to it, however that's about it. It's quite one dimensional, and leaves one hoping for more. There is a moderate degree of burn, thus this does not make a good sipper for a novice. The burn lingers on the mid-forefront of your tongue.
There is a lingering aftertaste. This if one aspect of the rum that I'm not a huge fan of. An aftertaste in general is not bad, just this rum finishes with a bit of a tart/bitter sense to it. You're mouth is also left quite dry.
Overall, for 35$ US, and from Mexico (which is not exactly known for their rums), it's not bad. It's kind of one dimensional, without a lot of depth to it. It's not bad, but probably not the rum you'd want the whole night. It would qualify as an entry level sipper.
