I’m Irish and from a navy town. I can down a bottle if rum in 2 hours if it’s good. This rum took me weeks to get through. Just burns without a reward. If you like cheap whiskey or lighter fluid you may like this rum
A really good drop. Hints of vanilla and very smooth.
Maybe the best nose on a Rum I have discovered so far, it smells delicious. A lovely smooth rum with lots of interesting flavours going on in it. .... Vanilla, wood/oak, chocolate and spices. Great value for money.
I love this. I continually mistake it for its older brother, the remarkable 23 year. That’s how good this is. Smooth, sweet without being cloying, very deep flavor.
Dokonale vybalancovaná sladkost medu s rostlinnými podtóny cukrové třtiny, vanilkovými stopami a patrným přídechem dubu a sušeného ovoce
Chuť na patře:
Vstupní chuť je hřejivě (až nektarovitě) sladká, dále rozvíjí plnější charakter stařeného rumu s tóny vanilky a jemným, dlouhým, opravdu skvostným zakončením.

I liked the 23 YO which was the first of the line I got.
This is thinner, and not as tasty as the 23.
If you are going to try this, go for the extra bucks, it's worth it.
Still a good rum
Bought this on the recommendation of a rum friend who thinks it's the best of the 12/18/23. I found it a bit light and artificial and prefer the depth of the 23 personally.
A very good go to rum. If you haven’t had it it’s certainly worth trying!
This rum was recommended to us a few years ago at a liquor store up in the Adirondacks. this rum is to blame or to take credit for me and my spouse to become true connoisseurs of liquor......
For the price it is absolutely Head and Shoulders above anything in its class they also have an 18 and 23 year we just got a bottle of the 23-year I haven't tried yet...
If you're looking for a rich robust deep flavorful rum that can be shipped on the rocks or used in mixed drinks particularly apple cider heated makes quite a treat
This is a less sweet rum than I'm used to. Seemed harsher on the palate, than my go to rums, Zaya and Zacapa, but In retrospect I think it's the style. Mixes well.
Toffee is the keynote, medium body, easy to drink, far from the classic sherry oak Spanish style Dominican rum. A very pleasant surprise
A great rum and a very nice bottle for the collection
Great nose, same as 23 year but not as complex on the finish. However, scoring similar as it's £10 cheaper. Can't find a better rum for price.
The colour is nice, the nose is minimal but what really got my attention was just how smooth this rum is. I found no alcohol burn, none at all, not even a little bit. Amazing for a 40% alcohol product.
The flavors are understated and the after taste is mild, both of which cause me to reduce my rating. I like complex, full-bodied rums.
Basically a 10 for smoothness but marked down for lack of complexity.
Nice clean and smooth rum worth more than what it costs.
Very nice rum. Smooth and refreshing with no burn. Hints of vanilla
This was a wonderful sipping rum. Perfect for when you want to come home and wind down your day with a night cap. It finishes a little on the bitter side. Keep the bottle. Makes a great bludgeoning tool for home security.
Beautiful bottle. Blend of rums. A bit hot and confusing flavor.
This is the best rum I have in my collection, possibly that I’ve tasted. The finish has a natural sweet and spicey finish. There is nothing artificial about the flavors offered here. The subtle vanilla and caramel blend remarkably well - did I mention that smooth finish? Oh yeah. It’s worth every dollar.
Etched bottle caught my attention as local store was out of Zacapa
Really good looking bottle. Nice amber color, smell with caramel hints. Smooth taste and no wood taste. I like it and definetly will try 18 and 23 years
Great sipping rum to enjoy with a good cigar, with notes of vanilla and caramel this rum leaves your mouth with a delicious silky aftertaste. Love it and have recommended it to several friends and family!
The appearance of the bottle makes it stand out to start with. Pull the cork, yes cork, and the aroma is sweet warm oaky and welcoming, but not overly strong. Over ice the taste is very smooth, subtle with oak, vanilla, honey and molasses taste. The aftertaste is dry, but no burn, slightly sweet, but not offensive. For the price this is one to ad to the favourites list.
This bottle was a gift off my fella and I must say I am not disappointed. It's lively with just a cube of ice but I love it with a can of ginger beer. It really fetches out the sweetness and flavour of the rum. You can really catch the oak and the vanilla. Fabulous x
