Sugar: 15 gpl. This is a very smooth rum with tons of flavor. It's not overly sweet, has a nice burn and a great after taste. Bananas and caramel mixed with some Oak and smoke. At $50 per bottle it is a bargain. I put it in the same class as the Zacapa XO. Buy 2 bottles if you find it.

Per the reviews on this site, I picked up a bottle for about 45 bucks. The initial feeling is smooth followed by a full tongue burn that nicely lingers after you are done with your sip. Nice mellow and balanced flavors. You can taste the bourbon notes. The first sip is really wonderful. A great bottle for those who appreciate aged rum.

I really loved this rum. Doesn’t have much burn. It has a notes of caramel, orange peel, molasses, and it’s a great sipper. Any rum drinker would enjoy it.

Uzasne jemná až sametová chuť. Neutrální, žádná výrazná příchuť, jen lehounce sladký bez lihového závěru. Podle mě rum, který zavděčí širokému spektru publika, je to elegán.

This is a fantastic rum that is sweet without being saccharine. Very light on the first sip and gets more complex as it lingers.

Vůně příjemná je cítit vanilka. Barva krásné jantarová a chuť jemná ovocná, karamel. Velice jemný rum a příjemným jemným koncem.

This rum has a beautiful smell about her. She be a little sweet, with vanilla, caramel, and oak, but just below deck, just out of range, there be hints of fruit, spices, and a bit of smoke. As for taste, the subtle sweetness, vanilla, and oak come through as expected, and then there be a surprising hint of biscuit flavor! The real surprise be when all that turns into a flat, tart cherry flavor that be more like a port wine than a rum. Arrrgh! Those two shores should never meet! Bourbon be a beautiful beverage, but if there be ANY hint of bourbon in this rum from the agin' process, then I be no better than a biscuit-eatin' landlubber! Arrrgh!!!

Aged? Hmm...
Surprised to see all those top ratings here... I expect more character and body in a spirit of that age.
Nose: Spicy, sharp, dry fruits
Palate: Sharp, some chili and also some oak, but disappointingly poor in flavour and a quite short aftertaste (there is some afterburn, but only little to no aftertaste).

Did a blind taste and this came in second. Not Plantation XO, but beat Kaniche Perfeccion. Was close with Santa Teresa
