Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Vizcaya VXOP rum is produced from sugar cane that is distilled in small batches then aged for between 18 and 21 years in bourbon casks.
The Oliver & Oliver distillery that produces Vizcaya VXOP rum was founded by Oliver Juanillo in the 1800s. It originally operated in Cuba, but in the 1959 revolution moved to the current Dominican Republic location.
Reminds me of the 12 year from what I remember which is a good buy for the price. Very thin mouth feel and not alot going on but super smooth.
Distilled from straight sugarcane and not molasses this is a very good Rum. Nice odors when you lift the cork an a good sweet taste but it goes down so damn smooth with no burn at all. Even the price is smooth for the quality of this Rum. Just Buy It and Taste It Yourself!!
Medium color for an aged rum combining notes of cola, vanilla and light molasses. It combines sweetness with a touch of acidic bite. Well blended.
Those Cubans can make rum, too bad we can't legit import it. It's just formulas, recipies, "inspired" or you travel a lot out of the US. Delicious.
I think, this is good for sipping. Smooth and not too sweet. But not special one. I can find almost same flavor and taste in other Dominican rum. Body is thin and has flavor of some dried fruit and spice.
I tried this rum for the first time a few days back, and as soon as I removed the top, I knew I was for a treat. The aroma was sweet and immediately hit the right spot. The color was as expected for an aged rum, bronze but not too dark. The taste had hints of vanilla, caramel and so smooth on the way down. I have had more expensive aged rums that are not as smooth as this one. A must have in your inventory. Nice gold color and super sweet aroma. The finish is smooth, no heat, which I think is a great end to this rum.
Taste 7,9/10. This is good drink... little bit simple profile taste but not in bad way, with some sweetness as most Oliver & Oliver rums & also a very small touch alcohol finish (maybe thats becase this has not intense flavours to cover the ethanol). Also it is smooth but with different character maybe maple taste makes it something little new....
Overpowering vanilla and background rancidness. Similar to Zaya 12. After some time on shelve, you can taste sea salt and lime sourness.
wonderful bottle, nice colour
sweet interesting smell
very, very tasty....one of the best rums i've ever drunk....
nice taste with fruits , vanilla oak and little bit of chocolate on the end....very balanced and smooth rum.
My wife and I were first introduced to Vizcaya at the Tampa Rum Fest in 2008. Before that night we only knew rum to be something mixed into a punch or added to a cola. I've since introduced a lot of rum fans to the larger world of cane-based spirits with this and Diplomatico. Ten years later I'll still go back occasionally. It's a bit sweet for me now, but this is a great starter rum for someone looking for something beyond Cap'n and Coke. It's very light on the nose with a hint of caramel and oak. The first sip has a lot of flavor from the sweetness and the woodiness. I like it on the rocks, but it also makes a nice Rum Old Fashioned.
$23.31 @Spec's. This is just a great sipping rum! On the rocks neat, or with a little water. Even works great with coconut water! My go to rum.
Nose: citrus, berries and a hint of vanilla and marzipan
Palate: hint of fresh fruity citrus.
perfectly balanced between the sweetness and alcohol - no harsh alcohol burn
I recommend leaving it for a couple of minutes, for the alcohol to vaporize.
Subtle hints of vanilla when sniffing the glass. You can taste the vanilla as well as clove and a bit of cinnamon. Very smooth on the front with a pleasant warmth on the back end.
