Recommendable to most
I'm suspicious of rums that are "sweet and smooth" like this one, because it inevitably means they've been doctored with a ton of sugar and additives. So, yeah, you can gulp this stuff straight up without much of an afterburn, but you sacrifice any real "rum-ness". Not much character, not much depth, not much period.
This rum was the one that got me into this whole rum rating situation. I loved it so much that I started to try more and more rums. Great starting rum!
Nice color and wonderful aroma. Taste is good but the aftertaste is a little bitter. I got a bottle for under $20.
Continuing to try new brands. This was reasonably priced for a 12 year. I prefer a little sweeter and smooth rums, this a little too harsh for me on ice, but nice with club soda and lime.
I liked the Vizcaya VXOP Cask 21 so I thought let me give this one a try. Although this one is not quite as sweet as it's older brother VXOP Cask 21 it still can't be compared. It's a shame that is has a bit of strong taste of bitterness which ruins the other flavours it has. To be honest I rate almost any rum which I have to mix with Coca-Cola a maximum of 5 or lower! Even with Coke it stays a little bitter. Sorry but it is not a winner for my tastebuds.
