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

It's not quite the XO, so I'd recommend paying a little more if you're looking for a neat sipper in the style of aged scotch, etc. A little harsher on the palate, this would be an excellent bar choice for any recipe calling for an aged bajan rum.

Very whiskey like. Not very sweet, strong oak. It’ll do if I had to, but nothing special.

Smagt til romhattens romfestival 2019. Den får en 3'er.

A clear step up from the Eclipse with a slight smokey taste.

This is sort of ok but its not nearly as good as the XO which i like quite a bit. I would get XO over this any day.

Vanilla, alcohol, molasses, woody finish lingers on in the back of my throat.

When at a US bar with a limited rum selection this is certainly worth trying. However if more aged rums are available it's only mediocre.

It's not the smoothest, but it has a great, complex flavour, can be drunk neat or goes well in most cocktails and generally under £30 a bottle, it's an excellent "filler" rum to have when you don't want to bring out the fancy stuff.

Nice English style rum, dark, strong, strong notes of the bourbon casks they riped in. Not syruppy. Not to strong on the nose, nice little burn in the throat. Short aftertaste. Like it more with some ice.

One of the basic rums. It is very easy to drink and good value for money.
