il vaut la peinr d 'etre gouté, pour le voyage, il vient de philippines . il goute le rhum, est agréable, festif, sucré mais les additifs trop présents. on a vraiment l impression qu il s agit d'un mix de rhum avec un peu de ceci et un peu de cela pour lui donner une identité. c 'est un bon achat mais pas un vrai rhum. (avis personnel)

U mňa áno, taký kumkvatovo sladkejší. Ale mne také vyhovujú.

Chutnal som ho spolu s rumami Pyrat, Zacapa, Plantation. Zaujal ma najviac. Výrazná pomarančová chuť a chuť po kandizovanom ovocí. Svojou sladkosťou a voňavosťou výborná voľba pre ženy a ľudí, kt. si chcú vychutnať pohárik. Predpokladám, že na opitie vhodný nebude...ranné prebudenie by asi bolo kruté, s bolesťou hlavy :) Určite odporúčam skúsiť aj ľuďom, ktorý neobľubujú tvrdý alkohol (vo všeobecnosti vinkári), tento kúsok ideálne prelomí ľady :)

I found this one very interesting. It has a lot of tropical notes in the nose. It is both intense and interesting. It is sweet and enjoyable.

Considering comments from other reviewers concerning possible cheating and flavouring, it feels almost bad to enjoy it. Sorry.

Čekal jsem hodně, dostal né tolik. Vanilkový rum, vůně/chuť vanilkové bonbónky typu sisinky, výrazné sladké aroma i chuť. Babské pití. Ale not bad jen je potřeba se naladit na tu sladší jízdu. Další lahev do domu už ne.

This rum is sweet. I mean sugary. It is syrupy and golden, it certainly looks the part but is very overpowering.
I liked the look of the rum and bottle is lovely, personally it is far too sweet but is great as a mixer in a long drink or cocktail. Great for those that have a sweet tooth, handy to give to guests.

Nice wrapping. But not the greatest rum, in thé price segment. Sweet.

This was another one of those ones I bought on a whim from a supermarket without knowing anything about it. I've had it for a couple of months now and the only reason I have a glass of it in front of me now, is so I can write this. It is not a bottle I reach for unless there is no other rum available.

I regard it as very much in the same vein as Pyrat XO.
It's just about drinkable, but there isn't much to say about it as a rum.
As with most licquers, it you make it sweet enough someone will drink it, and this has sweetness in spades.
Beyond that, it has citrus, oak and boiled sweets. Not the good kind like Werthers Originals (I often suck a Werthers when I'm drinking rum and let them play around in my mouth) but more like the cheap barley sugars you buy at petrol stations before a long journey, only to have a couple and decide they taste horrible and they stay in your glovebox until you sell the car.
There's something artificial about almost every aspect of this rum. The burn is harsh and long-lasting. The overall flavour is like the sauce from a plate of duck a l'orange. There is a little spice and a touch of pepper right at the very end, but it's more a kind of heat than a flavour.

This is yet another rum priced at a touch over £30.
If you want to spend a similar amount on a sweet rum, buy a Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. It is undisputably better. A bold statement, but I stand by it.

If I was to ever buy another bottle of this, it would be because
a It's cost has fallen to below £12 per bottle
b I could not get any other rum, and I had none in stock at home ... as if
It's not horrible, but there are other bottles in the house I would rather be drinking.

Nice sweet smoothness with a little after burn. Not a bad rum for the price

Not really a rum. More like a coffeeliquor.
Too sweet for my taste. Nice bottle though.

Smell very sweet. Taste like a gummy bear. Not for me, do not order again!
