Great bottle to slide along the bar... low center of gravity, like an electric car. As for the rum, a little one note on the vanilla, a little medicinal. A real rum though, doesn't seem tampered with, although some feel the vanilla might be spiced in as an after thought. I want to believe the distillery is on the level. Certainly grows on you, would be good with fruit, maybe perfect for baba au rhum!* Nice clean buzz... *(A popular European lemon desert cake soaked in rum...)

Soft with persistent flavors (sugar cane, molasses, vanilla, tobacco). Recommended !

Absolutely delicious - recommend leaving it for 20 minutes to really open up.

For me, this is a pretty smooth and satisfying sipper for a relatively low price of $33. I also tease this into killer mai tais once in a while. I always sip it neat and never felt the need for ice or dilution. A bottle usually doesn't last long around here. Its crisp with a little sweet oaky-vanilla and toffee, maybe some citrus and breath tobacco/leather/earthiness. Get some, and if you don't like, someone will gladly take it off your hands. The local spirits shop around here tends to got through several bottles a week.

Easy to sip this on the rocks. I give it an 8+. For a while it was available at Costco a pretty good deal at $28. Have to shop elsewhere for it now.

And that is not just the glass. This is a well aged rum that is almost too easy to drink. Not too sweet but still has some of the sweetness of rum compared to an aged whiskey.

Un rhum que je ne connaissais pas et qui a vraiment été une bonne surprise! Aussi chouette au nez qu'en bouche!

A delicious sipper, wonderfully complex yet smooth and not overly sweet. A fantastic value for the price.

This rum has a great taste and no bad after taste or burn, Very smooth. The bottle is unique looking. The color is nice but the aroma is a little weak. Not quite as good as El Dorado 12 yr or Diplmatico Reserve but definitley worth the money.
