Strong bourbon-like flavor. Good for sipping or in cola.

Máš rád suchý rum? Potom Ti sedne. Kvalitní a za dobrou cenu, uznávám, ale dám přednost sladší variantě

Moving to rum from brandy and malt having exhausted the availability in my price range. This is my first rum at £21 of Amazon and it delights me as neat or iced.

Agréable. Juste comme il faut. Facile a déguster. Un rhum classique. Bon rapport qualité prix pour 30€

This is a discovery thanks to a trip to South Korea. Have tried some other mount gays - not a fan. This one is on the shelf of Bacardi ocho, and single canes too. So I guess I am ok with the bit harsher rums. Would give 7.5. It has some bitterness, and bites my nose a bit too.

After pouring I could smell mostly bananas with some oak and pineapple hints. It's a good rum but unfortunately after first sip feels too harsh and lasts long. Slightly sweet.

It doesn't have the smoothness or flavour profile of many more expensive rums but then again it's not as expensive! And for what it costs, I think it's a great rum... I personally find it slightly too harsh to drink without ice but once a couple of ice cubes have started to melt it goes down a treat.

I first tried this rum 4 years ago and found it a solid 9. Last year and the year before, I found the taste had changed in that it was a more harsh for "on the ice" rather than straight.

Simple. No additives, but it is a light, simple rum.

Honigfarbenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase Karamell und Vanille mit schönen Holz Nuancen, Früchte und Beeren schmücken das Ganze.
Im Gaumen fruchtig leicht, getoastetes Holz mit Karamell, frisch gepflückte tropische Früchte.
Im Abgang dezent, etwas Holz, Früchte und Karamell.
Ein schöner ungesüsster Rum für Einsteiger und Fortgeschrittene mit gutem Preis / Leistung Verhältnis.

Honey coloured amber in the glass.
In the nose caramel and vanilla with beautiful wood nuances, fruits and berries decorate the whole.
On the palate fruity light, toasted wood with caramel, freshly picked tropical fruits.
In the finish discreet, some wood, fruits and caramel.
A nice unsweetened rum for beginners and advanced with a good quality/price ratio.
