Nice mixer, a little to sweet/marshmallowey, great price point.

A little sweet for my taste. It has a fruit and a oak taste to it. Would make an excellent after dinner drink.

Tried at a Cuban restaurant, mixed with Coke. It paired well with dinner, but then there are few rums that don't. Enjoyed the vanilla flavor.

I like this rum as a mixer mostly. A smooth upfront bite, a slight hint of buttery flavor with a standard and gentle rum aftertaste.

I hate the bottle and can't stress enough that it is the worst design ever for an alcohol that is often used in small quantities for mixers. Virtually impossible to get a jigger without spilling it everywhere. Nothing a long science eyedropper couldn't fix.
Other than the bottle, I still recommend for the taste.

A very sweet aroma. The first flavor that comes to mind is honey. Right out of the gate. Fairly smooth going down but has a quick bite that warms you up. Overall a good rum that isn't what I'm used to. I'm partial to spiced rums but I could see myself drinking much more of this. UPDATE: After letting the rum settle over some rocks, I've changed this from a 7 to an 8. Very smooth. The bite is completely gone and the only thing that remains is a mild, silky smooth, tasty adult beverage.

I know many people rate this as better than Papa's Pilar dark. I feel it's too harsh to be a sipping rum. So I rated it a 5. In fact, there really is nothing exceptional about it.

For a clear rum this has been pretty good at mixing for my tastes. I only picked this one up because my wife does not like dark rum nor dark bourbons of any kind. She is mainly a vodka and tequila drinker. However after trying this rum in a mix she has been sold. The taste of this rum is very sweet and strong notes of vanilla. All in all a fairly decent rum for the price.

This is my go to rum for mixing, very flavorful with all hints that are noted about it. I love the dark and blonde both.

Lot of sugar and Vanilla this. Rum bottlers not distillers. Nice idea. Good marketing but the juice - ehh
Tried with Coke sweet...

A very good rum with a nice subtle flavor. I enjoy it in Coke Zeros. My wife tries rums straight and didn't find it objectionable but did not feel she would want to drink it straight.
