Tasty, but not quite great
I like silver rum, started drinking it in Puerto Rico. Shellback is still making rum. This one has a smooth start and sweet finish. You won't be disappointed if you like silver rums, this is the best.
This is my go to rum for a rum and Coke or a piña colada. Slight, smooth and slightly sweet with a touch of vanilla. That should be a staple on anyone's shelf. Unfortunately, I've heard it's discontinued.
Though finding shellback in NY state is very difficult, I do like shellback siler for my rum and coke. For the cost " around $15" it is very good.
This is by far one of my go to silver rums. It has great crisp flavor with mild heat and is very smooth. Is great for daiquiris or other tropical cocktails.
The aroma is completely dominated by very strong vanilla, almost to the point of not tasting like rum. For the price, however, it's not bad.
I find this rum more enjoyable to drink than a lot of other white rums in the $15 price range. Nothing fancy flavor wise with some heat at the back.
Would do well in many cocktails!
