This is a clean clinical rum that ticks all the right boxes. For the price only a few can match it. Has enough flavour n aroma to impress for the age. Reminds me of Atlantico private cask. Nice bottle to.

For a rum that is only 5 years old this really surprised me with its delicate flavours and complexity. Most importantly, it tastes delicious too!

This rum is light yet full of flavour. Vanilla and raisin notes are apparent and the Jamaican pot still rum provides a warming finish. We love this rum neat as it goes down easier than anything else on the market!

Really surprised how good this is. Not sure i know a better one for a rum and coke.

When you see the word grog, you imagine what the navy used to drink in a sloshed rum flagon... So it's a surprise when you get a rum that's delicious and lovely blend of flavours ... You can tell this is a blended rum but it is serious competition for more expensive rums

Got this in a miniature, so drank at home. Smooth but nothing interesting, easy drinking. But after got a slight TCP tang to it! 28 April 2017

Somebady, diluted with water on my bottle ?
Too light taste, too dry.

Pálení alkoholu na chuti i vůni.
Nijak extra zajímavý

I don't love this but I found once I'd opened the bottle I kept on reaching for it. Not sure why. Mixes well, bit of a kick on it's own. Love the bottle and the branding.

Nice gold rum good mixer all round. Too young to sip but goes well with cola, ginger ale or juice

Wow, complex rum, sharp in the beginning, good burn, becomes more sweeter in the mouth.
I taste a lot of raisins :))

A surprisingly pleasant rum. Great neat or with cola. Would definitely recommend.

Yet another average rum with similar set of spices to big commercial brands. Oak casks are doing their job pretty well as oak is the most significant flavour in the rum. This would be definitelly better in mix with some soda.

This is a must buy for me personally.
I recently received a bottle for Christmas and it's lovely. Smooth to drink and great on the nose, very very moreish.

I really liked this drop. Served as it is with a few ice cubes. Not to be spoilt by mixing.

Touch of oak vanilla with a little bit of molasses & toffee. Its good but not great and makes an excellent mixer

Pirate's Grog Gold is a gimmick tourist rum. Bottle looks attractive enough to be purchased. Color is semi dark golden. Alcohol smell reveals a rather young rum although the bottle says 37.5% alcohol. Taste is not that bad as the smell test, surprisingly mellow flavor profile and some burn at the end.

Really nice flavours and goes well with Fritz Cola.

Tested on the basis of this assessment. Very good mild taste and aroma, amazing price/performance ratio!

Minty, pleasant aroma of orange peel, smells of raw sugar cane plant and lightly spiced.
Light and dry in flavor with ashy notes. Taste similar to light Cuban rum with couple drops of water in it.
Short finishing, minty after taste, follow with hint of ashy flavor.

I like this rum for its strong taste and nice aroma. Also like oldschool bottle design.

Got this one recommended by a friend. What a surprise that rum for such a ridiculous price can taste so good.

Tento rum bol pre mna velke sklamanie, ked som si ho po vsetkych dobrych hodnoteniach objednal. Nevyzrety a prilis korenisty.

10/10 would drink again! Very nice mild taste with strong aromas!
