Tasty, but not quite great
This is an incredibly simple review because there is nothing complicated about this one. It smells like alcohol, vanilla and faint oak. That's about as basic white rum it gets. Tastes like.... basic white rum, vanilla and alcohol with some hint of oak on the plus of this is there is no bite with this one. It's as simple as it gets, however the 29$ a fifth price turns me away from this. I will stick to Appleton estate white which is about 10$ a fifth and identical to this.
Being a cane rum, I expected this to be more like rhum agricole—it's not. In fact, it's rather sweet. I'm not sure whether to use this as a light, gold, agricole, or sipping rum... it can do a bit of each, but for me it falls somewhere between a light and sweeter gold rum.
As others have mentioned, it's a bit pricey, but it's also challenging to find decent light rums at most liquor stores. It's not a big stand-out (aside from the bottle design), but I can't find anything wrong with this rum, either. A solid choice if better-value rums (such as Plantation 3-Star or FdC 4) are unavailable. For the price, you should be getting something more interesting.
This is my go to for Mojito's.On the rocks it's a bit stiff but till doable but, again, this is my Mojito Rum all the way!
From reading the description I was expecting something with more of a vegetable like taste, like a rhum agricole or a cachaca. It has a sweet but clean aroma with hints of lilac and honey, and a smooth taste with a hint of orange peel and very little burn. Not a lot of flavor as a sipper, but would be great on ice with a twist of lime, or in a fruity cocktail like a classic daiquiri.
I had such low expectations that I was blown away. Solid rum for most drinks. Straight up with a orange and sugar candy is a sweet summer drink.
un ron de calidad en su elaboracion campesina me encanta para mezclar de sabor final en caña su elaboracion en barril frances le aporta su valor
