I'm not sure why everyone likes this so much? Maybe I should give it another go, but I wasn't impressed.

unabashedly sweet, but stops short of being overpowering. loads of full desserty flavors like vanilla, orange, and toasted almond, with a gentle balancing note of toasted oak. not quite as complex as the very best, but a fine sipping rum nonetheless.

Aye, say what you want about 12 year-olds, there be a maturity to this rum. She has a bit of a sweet smell about her, but not syrupy sweet, with caramel, some vanilla, and a touch of oak. As taste goes, she be even less sweet, but not dry! There be a decent amount of sweet in this one, and the caramel, vanilla, and oak come along on board as well. There be a healthy amount of spice in this one, and t'would seem some manner of sweet fruit. This be a smooth and flavorable sippin' rum, me hardies. Be sure to hide THIS one from the crew...

Really solid aged rum. I had low expectations because I can find this in most grocery stores, but wow it is good. Priced right, easy to sip. This is a great starter for novice rum sippers. Lots of flavorful notes that are easy to recognize.

Sweet and smooth. Pairs very well with muddled espresso and chocolate bitters

Definitely on the sweeter side, but it does not suffer a great deal for it.
A great mixer for any drink you want to add very few ingredients to.

A nice 12 year with a great bottle.

Wonderful with MX cola. Pleanty of vanilla, caramel, with a nice aftertaste.

I was not blown away by this rum. A bit harsher than the 23, but still an ok rum.

Very nice package, great taste and smell, could be longer aftertaste.

Title says it all. This is a good rum. I prefer the vanilla, sweeter rums so this is right up my alley. But for five bucks more you can get the 18 year which is way better. I don't think moving up to the 23 is really worth it and doesn't add much value.

Bought this to try as my usual 12 year Flor de Cana was out of stock.
I'm far from being an expert, but I don't really think it's that good at all, even as a mixer. It tastes like so many other bog standard rums from the local off-licence and isn't very smooth. All the fake tat on the bottle trying to make it look like something that fell off the back of a salvaged schooner is just naff. I can only think that many of the reviews on here are possibly fake.
