This is an overall go to rum for the price at 24.00 for 1 Liter. This is a 7 sipper and a 10 mixer. So I give this a 8.5 overall. Anything calling for extra dry this is the number one choice. This overall is great either way. I can only hope to come come across ciglo de oro or even papa andre some day. This I hear replaced blanco which I can still get here at certain places.

This is my favorite white rum to mix. It is so unassuming that it never gets in the way of your cocktails. Makes a wonderful Mojito.

I must say this is a perfect rum for rum Martinis, mojitos or a rum and lemon/soda. I do enjoy a crisp taste in my cocktails and not to sweet. Not essentially a good rum for sipping but excellent for mixing do to the dry and unsweet taste. a believe its a must have in your bar for cocktail making.

Sometimes if not most the old saying "a good mixer" is meant as a slight to the Rum however given that most Rums are consumed as 'mixers' this matters. This is Dry and clean and sweet and a great mixer as well as its affordable. Can't go wrong......

This is among my favorite white rums. It's slightly aromatic with subtle flavors and fairly smooth, more complex than most other white rums. It's a great buy at this price point, around $15 US for 750 ml in Ohio . I prefer it neat or neat with a little water or chilled. The subtle flavors get lost when it's on on the rocks.
Nov. 2015 Update: recently I read that this was deemed the best rum for a Mojito in a blind taste test. I tried it and I agree, although the Mojito is not among my favorite cocktails.

In terms of basic white rums go this is as basic as it gets. White vanilla oak. The slight harshness. blhablhablahablh put it in coke and you get a basic white rum and coke with a little more sweetness. A direct upgrade from this would be Diplomatico blanco. Diplomatico blanco has a much better sweetness at the end a better body and less harshness. This joins the basic white rum club.

A really nice well put together slightly dry white mixing rum.

No sipper but no pretensions to be one. Great in a Cuba Libre

A favorite and my standard white rum. I only use it in mixed drinks. More smooth and better of taste than Bacardi blanco.
