Ce duo est vraiment très bon. Un odeur mélanger de cassonade et de caramel. Le 7 est moins sucré et plus fruité. Le 24 est caramélisé et épicé, la finale est longue et complexe. Je recommande a tous, merci à ma sœur.

First off, the photos I've seen of this shows the lid having a cork. Mine is a screwtop so right off the bat I feel a bit gypped.


This rum has a pronounced sweetness to it. A little too sweet IMHO. I think it would be better if that were toned down just a little bit. I prefer the Papa's Pilar blonde but this is a nice, smooth rum as well. Careful mixing it in rum punches and colas...the sweetness combination can be a bit overwhelming. I think this would, however, work quite well in coffee-based drinks. Definitely not a bad rum but could have been so much more.

Good but a lot of vanilla. Almost would prefer it mixed.

I found this to be a good rum, but like the Zaya, it's a little heavy on the added flavoring. This has a fair amount of vanilla and maple, along with almond, some cinnamon, and a touch of sherry. Pretty good for sure, but may be borderline too sweet.

I really liked this Rum. I was in a cigar bar and the first rum they gave me (with one big rock) was almost a flat ice tea. Then they gave me this one. Bam! My bad mood was turned right around! If you like that Caramel / Molasses / vanilla hints in a Rum this one has it. Very smooth! It is not my top favorite rum, but it is up there!

Sugar: 24 gpl. This rum is a must have if you like a sweet rum. It's sweet with some complex flavors from the Port and Sherry casks, along with some strong vanilla and caramel, but the biggest flavor is the taste of dark Maple syrup which to this Canadian is awesome. The blend of rums in this bottle work very well. It has a bolder flavor than the Centenario 20 or the Maderas PX 5+5. It is a must have in any collection.

vanilla is the first thing that hits you. Was more one dimensional then I thought it would be. Still pretty good though. visited this again, don't like it as much as I thought.

This is a great Rum for a great price. Has a really sweet nose, notes of caramel and brown sugar. Very good sipping rum. Has a nice mouth feel, and finish. Just enough bite to know you're still drinking alcohol.

This rum is easily found and priced right. This could easily be a 90 dollar bottle. Flavor, sweetness, almost savory. Great warm or from the freezer.

Tried this rum in Key West and I can say that the version they serve is better than what you get at your liquor store. The regular market Pilar is produced for them in Jamaica I think, and is not nearly as good as the small batch you can get in KW.
