Agree with all reviews, it ain't rum for me. I gave it a 3 because of the marketing and branding, that DP does well. But its a bit of a scam. Though the regular malibu or red bull consumer may find DP the best rum there is and that's unfortunate - i believe - to the spirit of rum.

sladký, trochu chemická vůně, v chuti vanilka a citrusy, krásná láhev.

It's definitely not a sipper, I would use it only for some cocktails and even then I would be careful with it. It tastes like old munk or like.

I'm not sure why most folks taste vanilla or caramel. The bottle I tired is clearly butterscotch with a peppery edge. Also, I am not sure why most think it is any sweeter than many other rums rated much higher. Zacapa, Kirk & Sweeney, Dictator, Bones, Diplomatico ER, Afrohead and on and on. I also did not find it syrupy.

Would I drink it all the time? Nope. Occasionally? Yep. Kind of like a desert rum. Is it priced right? Pretty much.

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.
