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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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!!!
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.
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.
