This is my first review, and I am excited to do it on "The best Sipper" i have tried thus far. The bottle sets it off from the start with it classic design and beautiful labeling. The cork is unusual then a normal cork( it don't catch or get discoloration from the rum) placed in a brass top. Now the contents in the bottle, dark red in color must say one of the darkest rum I have ever had. Must be from the finished in sherry casks for at least a month, FACUNDO EXQUISITO is incomparably mellow in profile. From the time you take the first sip you be surprised how mellow it is, but after you let it a irate after a few its incredible almost sweet in taste, This is what catches me every time I drink it.Price was just under 100 and I believe it's worth every penny. I may go pick up the last one they had at my liquor stor and I hope you enjoy yours.

I have bought and enjoyed all of the dark Facundo rums and this one is by far the best. Much better finish than the Paradisio a d half the price. Great nose and excellent finish. Slight hint of sweetness with lots of dark fruits.

Let me be upfront, it was the bottle design that got me curious about this. At the time I though "Facundo" was just another brand of premium rums but learned soon that "Facundo" was, in fact, Facundo Bacardi of the Bacardi Rum conglomerate. The rum itself is a blend of different rums aged between 7 and 23 years in American oak barrels in the Bahamas. And if that weren't enough the rum blend is then finished in sherry casks for about a month or more and hand bottled in Tultitlán Mexico. I like the art deco design on the bottle. Photos do not do it justice. It is a beautiful gold leaf. The cap is metal with a wide rubber cork. Brace the bottle well when pulling that cork out. Mine was TIGHT. Made a bit POP sound when I got it out.

The color of the rum is a rich, dark mahogany fading to a golden hue in the shallower points of the snifter. The aroma is wonderful. When I tasted it I noticed a marked vanilla flavor and a sweetness to it (sugared?) but not overly sweet (tempered by the sherry casks perhaps?). Extremely smooth. There is a distinct oakiness to it but not bitter. The finish reminds me of toffee. At $90-$100 USD a bottle this is not a rum you pick up on a whim. This is a rum for special occasions and for display. This is an extremely well-crafted rum in a well-crafted bottle. Highly recommended as a sipping rum. It would be a crying shame to use it any other way.

Great rum consistent time and time again. Not my favorite in this price range but still warrants a strong 8+ so I had to give it a 9-. Dark rich smooth easy to drink. Exquisite bottle and cap.

A very good rum, recommended 100%. It has a very good presentation very showy and striking, when served in a cup you can see a very nice mahogany color, and a very balanced flavor as well as the aroma.

Un ron muy bueno, recomendable al100%. Cuenta con una muy buena presentación muy vistosa y llamativa, al servirlo en copa se aprecia un color caoba muy agradable, y de un sabor muy equilibrado al igual que el aroma.

After trying most of the high priced rums, this one is The Favorite. Well balanced, easy to drink, not too sweet, not too dry, not too strong, just right. Has all the tastes and qualities that you look for in a rum. In my opinion, there is no need to look for the perfect rum anymore.
This is a rum that you do not want to use in a mixed drink. Why spoil a work of art.

A must in a collection. However, it will not last since it will be the one that you will drink. Better buy more than 1 bottle. Not too expensive at $90.

Really good rum for sipping but little bit higher price in this category

Got to sample this rum and immediately added it to my want list. A great nose this rum invites you in with hints of vanilla and spices. Full bodied on the tongue with just a bit a alcohol burn. Found this to be very enjoyable and hope to find it my local liquor store.

Very strong chemical smell at first, but once you let it breathe, it was a decent $70CAD bottle of rum... but for the actual cost of $300CAD, there are lots of other rums I'd rather...

A really nice full flavour nose. Strong and sweet. A unique strong taste with a little sweetness and lots of pleasant flavour that last well onto the aftertaste. Not much heat, but the aftertaste remain similar to the initial taste. Quite a nice rum.
