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
Er netop hjemkøbt. Mangler at smage på denne. Bedømmelse kommer senere
The bottle:Bit rounded perfume bottle.
Glass: Light amber color. In the beginning a robust alcoholic smell but after venting in 15-20 minutes, a vanilla scent pops up.
Mouth: Here, it is very strange. Without aeration tastes much milder than aerated therefore contrary to the fragrance. The taste tighten vanilla direction a little boisterous than usual Dominican rum. It may come from the Cuban formula that is mentioned on the bottle.
Aftertaste: Butterscotch, vanilla
Summary: The thing is that I puffed on a Don Tomas cigar during the test, but I do not know how much it has affected. I like this rum it has character
Its good rum, smooth and vanilla taste but strong finish. Beautiful bottle
I find myself going back and have a second glass every time I have a drink. Sweet but not to sweet with none of that after burn.
This is one of the top RUMS on my list by far. I love this rum and If I do not have it at the house im going straight to specs to pick me up a bottle. My fav!!!
If your looking for the absolute rum, this is it, exspensive but we'll worth it an absolute great rum, would be a crime to mix
One of the smoothest, easiest to drink alcoholic beverages you will find.
A nice simple tasting smooth rum. Good stuff but I would rather buy the vizcaya 12 cask for half the price.
I find myself mixing coke into this one more often than not... It is definitely a great rum, but it lacks flavor, body and punch.
I am new to the rum game but I love this rum so much. I have tried many alcohols but I always go back to rum. Rum is my is my favorite. I am 23 years of age but can say I have almost been to all of the Caribbean islands as I travel a lot. I have had the opportunity to try many rums that are not sold in United States and ever since I tried Jamaica's JB rum that cannot be bought in America I was sold that rum is my favorite. Vizcaya is by far my favorite as I enjoy sweet smooth rums. I would buy this rum every time I run out. Every time I introduced this rum to friends and family they always asked me whats its called and add Vizcaya to their shelf. Buy it!
Great sugar cane juice rum. Pungent and sharp. Smells of vanilla, butterscotch an dried fruits with hint of cinnamon. Tastes of caramel apple, toasted marshmallow and maple syrup.
This is a good rum, the taste is real smooth and round.
Nice bottle and nice rum. Lived up the expectations.
Very developed flavors and quality that surprised me. I don't drink it regularly, but I wouldn't turn it down. I bought it for the bottle, but was pleasantly surprised by the contents!
This rum is very smooth and gentle to the drinker.
Very easy to enjoy without requirering the palette of a connoisseur.
Lacks a bit of complexity.
This rum is a solid choice. It´s not very complex and the nose has just a little too much alcohol imo.
That being said, it's pretty smooth still.
Overall I would probably buy this again.
Edit: This rum grows on me. I like it better and better and has changed my rating to an 8. I just can't explain excactly why.
It has earned a permanent place in my collection.
Excellent sipping rum with sweet taste that extends beyond your first sip. Very smooth. A top rating for VXOP and top on my shelf.
Smooth with great aftertaste. Definitely one of favorites.
Great rum. The taste has some notes of honey and caramel. I thought the sweet taste was subtle (which I really like). It is well balanced and very very smooth. Nice bottle. This is a great rum for me. A solid 8/10.
Well balanced aged offering from DR. Price point where it should be but there are better values out there.
Endnu et pletskud fra Oliver & Oliver. Dejlig duft og smag. Lad den stå i 20 min. i glasset og den bliver endnu bedre.
This is a flavor packed rum with a sweet caramel finish. The rum smells similar to the bourbon casks where it is aged.
Nice nose, but a bit to much ethanol for me.
Rich taste but it goes to etanol after a while in the mouth..
But when swallowed.. The finish !!.. When the etanol taste leaves.. Just perfect..
The initial flavors are honey with some light vanilla, but no way as sweet as the Atlantico Private Cask. The taste turns into some subtle spices and finishes very smoothly. I like this one a lot.
