Tasty, but not quite great
Tried a bottle of this, used it in some cocktails and it did the job, quite an earthy taste, hints of Vanilla
and quite dry with just a hint of sweetness.Prefer it over the usual Bacardi and Coke.
This was the bottle that taught me about the complexity and pleasure of white rum. Slightly sweet stonefruit notes make this an excellent rum to mix or sip.
Pleasantly surprised to find this one is a pretty solid sipper. Very tequila-like with all the vegetal notes. Nice mouthfeel... viscous. Dry with just a hint of sweetness. At $20.99 it's a no-brainer... this goes in the daily go-to rotation.
Enjoyed a bottle of Cana Brava Light while visiting Grand Canyon. Spectacular value at $28 per bottle. Nice old school bottle and label design. Vanilla extract, pure alcohol and plenty of oak to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Funky ending.
N- At the back of the stale and soft reeds find the orange, mineral, some brine and even some berries develops, a rather interesting profile and could be quite good if it is not been filtered and strip to pale white. (79/16)
P- Lively with spirit kick, while not thin but not giving too much of anything else. (75/15)
F- Short, ok level of sweetness with spirit coat. (75/15)
B/B- 80/17 Clean with good texture, and at least this is not an "UP" version, at 43%, this would be a good mixing rum.

Not sure how to describe. Very complex and made an outstanding daquari. Will have to try it in other cocktails or a Cuba Libre, but by far the best white rum I've ever had, although I do want to try the Brugal white rum too!
Not much sweetness, weird nose... quite a lot of flavour, smooth for 43%. Can’t put my name on the flavours they are not harsh just not the typical notes of white rum. Can’t wait to try a Classic Daiquiri with it!
As the title implies, I'm not sure how to rate this. I'm not a white rum fan at all, prefer my darks and spiced, mostly for the notable complexity of flavours. That being said, this is the most complex white I've ever tried, and as such, I have to acknowledge the notes coming through. All I have to go off of is the almost salty but flavourful subdued notes of a fine tequila. This is certainly unique and something I would recommend for someone seeking something interesting and different. I can see how the reviews here favor it as a daiquiri ingredient as it could almost shift the drink to more of a margarita. Definitely recommended.
