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

This is a good intro rum for those who have not drank rum neat before. It is light, slightly sweet and heavy on vanilla on the nose and the palate. Some oakiness is present as well. Maybe a hint of apricot? Everything about this rum is pleasant. I give it only 8 because it is missing a kick or some body. Something to make it more memorable. Maybe the 18 and 23 will have that little something the 12 is missing?

Smooth, vanilla and carmel. I am always buying new rums & rhums to try but I always keep a bottle of this on hand.

A really nice smooth rum with a delicious hint of vanilla. Liked this more than I thought I would

6 /10 seems a little stingy but its my rating against many others. cool looking bottle, corked and nice colour. much promise but not what I expected. All good but flavour swings off towards the leathery cigar type Cuban rums. I tried it all ways but enjoyed the neat mostly. I have barely any sense of smell so cant offer a view. Ill finish the bottle but wont rush out to buy another soon

Dry. Very dry. Really nice.

Sainsbury’s had it for £28 too. Good do all round.

This is essentially a worse version of diplomatico. Extremely sweetened, but some nice flavors in there

This bottle has never let me down. The glass is perfect, the shape, the weight, the design, on point. Seems to be designed in the fashion of an old perfume bottle, happily the juice inside is NOT of that flavor. Looks amazing on the shelf, and tastes, eh, almost as good. The 18 year is far better for the money in my opinion.

This rum could become a standby. Smooth, flavorful, and delicious. Love it.

Drinkable but I am confounded by the high ratings for this overly sweet rum with a strong vanilla aftertaste. If you are into a spiced rum flavor without the spice, then this would be a good rum for you. But if you like a nice neat sipper, and you appreciate the true undertones of a traditionally distilled rum, this one is not for you.
