Country of Origin:
Barbados

Bottle:
A nice frosted, heavyweight bottle that can easily slip through your hand if you've had one too many. It looks very at home sitting on a beach bar or in the sand.

Glass:
As clear as vodka, the rum creates thin legs that stream quickly down the sides.

Nose:
Notes of banana and coconut are easily noticed with the sting of alcohol drifting through every once in a while. Even before drinking, the nose promises a high level of sweetness. The smell is best enjoyed with your nose a little higher than usual from the glass.

Tongue:
As expected, the tropical banana and coconut flavors pop on the tongue immediately, but they quickly fade, giving way to a strident and fierce alcohol burn that wipes out all flavors.

Finish:
Not too harsh, but a smoother finish would have meshed well with the mild banana/coconut mixture. Instead you get a thin stream of fire going down. I can see how this rum could work very well as a mixer.

Aftertaste:
The tropical flavors return once the burn fades, leaving behind a ghost of the initial offering.

Overall:
Mild tropical flavors mix with a medium burn which impedes on the experience somewhat. Good for what it was likely designed for: drinking in a cocktail in a beach chair near the ocean. Not enough complexity for sipping, there are much better options out there.

Thought this was a very good rum for a mixer. Kenny Chesney has got a good brand!

Higher quality than your regular stock white rums. Brings a nicer element to mixing.

I use several different brands of rum in my cocktails, Bacardi, Captain Morgan, Tortuga, they are basically all similar, good enough for cocktails, they are far from being a superior rum.

Hands down, if I’m looking to get a rum to mix cocktails, this is the one. The price point is low enough where I don’t mind that it’s not super complex. It’s very smooth and buttery, hint of tropical flavors. Definitely not for sipping but I strongly support it as a “rum to have on hand”.

The first taste I had, I thought it was very sweet and smooth. I tried it with a pineapple juice I had on hand and it was pretty tasty. Overall, I prefer spiced rums but I was surprised with this one. I may buy this one again.

Nothing overly spectacular, not a terrible taste. An average rum for the price.

The classic Bahamian drink "sky juice" is quite good with this rum. To mix you take an empty 4L milk jug, fill with one 26 oz bottle of your choice, a medium measure of condensed milk for sweetness/color and topped off with coconut water. Shake and your got Sky juice!

One of my preferred white rums

The rum has a pleasant soft texture, as it feels slightly buttery across the palate. There is an underlying taste which reminded me of mineral water which I suppose may be associated with the soft buttery mouth-feel. I also tasted a mildly sweet butterscotch flavor which is very lightly accented with mint and licorice. There is also a growing spiciness which hints at citrus zest and banana peel. I found that I preferred to add ice to my glass rather than to sip the rum neat.

Blue chair Bay white rum is a good rum for mixing with fruit juices or diet coke. I did not get the aftertaste that some of the reviews mentioned , and it is far superior to Bacardi. I won't compare it to Appleton or other darker rums because they are apples and oranges in my opinion. Good mixing rum for the beach
