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.
Plenty of vanilla. Smells sweeter than it tastes. I like
This is really good stuff. Not too sweet and not too rough. Excellent too close a night.
Wonderful vanilla and caramel, I get a craving for it at times over other higher rated rums. Terrific.
6.5 on my scale, but bottles aren't half full or empty here. Maybe a 7. A slight hint of molasses, maybe a bit of oak. Interesting and seems to be better early than later. More research needed.
Paid $41.99 in NYC. The nose is nice with vanilla notes, almost like cream soda. Upon tasting, you can clearly taste the vanilla but not overpowering like Zaya. Quite smooth, delicious and worth buying again.
Most liquor I've tried has required breathing time after it's poured. This is mellow straight from the bottle. I am very impressed. It's got the vanilla taste I love in rums like Zara but without the sweetness. The nose is mellow without the alcohol bite. I wouldn't dream of mixing this or even adding a cube. I've rated several runs 9 cause I thought I was too inexperienced to call it ten. Well no more. This isv10
Overall a good sweet (not overly sweet) rum that is brilliant on the nose but lacks a bit of a taste. It is a bit boring in taste compared to others in its price category. I also found the finish to be rather rough.
Really nice, maybe a bit to expensive for this tast.... medium sweet, nice Integrated alcohol, but would prefer a litter more "power" on the taste - should last longer.
I liked this rum, because it is kind of well of everthing. Not to sweet, but seet enough. Nice nose, good in the mouth, but not long lasting.
Angenehmer Geruch, intensiver aber sehr feiner Geschmack nach Vanille...und das Sanft auf der Zunge, kaum wahrnehmbare Schärfe im Abgang. Für meinen Geschmack zu likörig, ein wenig brennen sollte hochprozentiges schon ;)
After reading so many good reviews I was looking forward to this one but was left somewhat disappointed. Yes, it's very smooth but after the the first taste I kept waiting for more flavors to start coming through but unfortunately they never came. Even the initial nose isn't as complex as other similarly priced rums. All in all it's a pleasant enough rum for what it is but just don't go expecting anything more.
I just purchased my first bottle of VXOP. The front end tastes of alcohol but it finishes with a long, lingering sweetness and smoothness on the back end.
Fantastic Rum. Aroma its caramel with a hint of fruit perfect start of tasting. Buy this one
Very enjoyable rum, if you like sweet rums, you should like this one.
Very smooth rum.
I didn't like the nose that much , but i love the taste. I love the more commercial tastes over the agricolle and this one is very sweet. Nice aftertaste. It lacks a bit complexity
Smell: Alcoholic punch in the face that fades after waiting 1 minute. Apricot and Honey (could smell orange marmalade)
Taste: Sweet, smooth finish, warming and a slight alcoholic burn, honey and apricot with notes of vanilla.
A good introduction for people new to aged rums.
One of the best value on the market.
This Rum is authentic, very balanced, sweet but not sugary...it has a lot of oak.
Stop reading reviews, just buy it !
the oldest in my collection. It's not a solera. Rum very terse not too spicy but delicious in taste
Nice rum but mot wat you expect. Still good to drink
I Come back from my rating on this rum. I don't know what happened but the second time i tasted it felt completely different. It is a real nice rum. smokyness, nice burn and ends a little sweet.
Rhum smoothe à boire sur glace (mais pas trop) ou straight. Excellent pour une fin de soirée relax.
I really enjoy this rum. I would give it a 8.5 but since that isn't available. Excellent neat or on the Rocks, don't wanna waste it with more than a splash of coke. Excellent flavor and finish. I have 100 rums in my cabinet and I can pick this one out in a blind test every time.
Well worth the $ you will spend at a reasonable practical price.
Too much added sugar makes this rum hard to take seriously. It lacks depth. It's entry level stuff.
Easy, with smokey oak flavours, enough sweetness and decent complexity.
Don’t get too excited Vizcaya’s “Cuban Formula” rum is actually made in the Dominican Republic. Is not 21 years and if you mixed is not a sin, but yes can be sipped as well. Not my favorite rum.
