I bought a bottle for $28 and would be willing to spend more after tasting this. Caramel, vanilla, and oak flavors with no burn. Good looking bottle also.

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.

This is a quality rum, but it seems that the barrels it was aging in has transformed it from a rum flavour to a whiskey one. Not really for me. The bottle presentation is quite nice.

Did I get a bad batch? Astonished by all the 10s. To me, the flavor wasn't terribly complex or impactful - a little vanilla, a bit of tropical fruit, little smokiness. It was never offensive, just... barely there. It was very smooth, however. Would be a great rum for people who enjoy whiskeys, but for the price you can get better rums.

Well. To be honest. I rated this one on the second of two stuff drinks. And I guess dice I really wanted the second drink it rates and 8. 😀

I’ve had this rum many times surprised I never rated it. Great old school presentation bottle and decor. It’s a solid rum but not top notch. Dark sweet nice rocks rum but leaves me wanting more.

This is not quite as wonderful as the 18 year, but still very nice for the price. Lovely nose. Very pleasant neat.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Dominikánská republika
Aroma: Kandované ovoce, cedr, včelí plástve, medová sladkost, broušená kůže. (84 b)
Chuť: Oproti vůni je na jazyku vcelku suchý, hřebíček, cedrové dřevo, v dochuti pak i mírná hořčinka. (80 b)
Body: 82/100
Shrnutí: Mám lahev a nejsem z ní kdoví jak nadšený, na mě už dost suchý, osmnáctiletá verze byla výrazně lepší.

Nice especially in a old fashioned but it does remind me of bourbon anyway with lost of wood spiciness but didn’t get much sweetness from it. Wasn’t wowed by it

I prepared myself not to like this rum. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it as a gift and enjoyed with a large ice cube. This very quaffable rum has spicy notes up front, but mellows into vanilla and toffee on the back. I really like it. Looking forward to trying the older varieties.
