Tasty, but not quite great
I sampled this rum as the distillery in Key West. I was never a "hard" alcohol or mixed drink person. The dark was as expected...it was alcohol -- But the Blond was like nothing I had ever had. It's not infused, but has this vanilla/maple essence and it's so smooth. It's so good, I drink it straight over ice and would never dream of putting it in a mixed drink. This rum is one of my favourite reasons for returning to Key West.
Perfectly Smooth. No harsh BleuAhhhh!!! when it hits your taste buds or after you swallow.
I just opened this beautiful bottle and enjoyed its almond, vanilla and lime aromas. Very drinkable, smooth, full flavored and nice finish. It reminds me of the now unavailable Orinoco Rum.
Cool bottle and when it comes to thick base bottles that is a good indicator of quality. Dont ask me why or how but anytime a bottle has a thick base its usually pretty good. Opening this guy up smells like maple syrup with some vanilla maybe nuts such as walnuts, no alcohol smell. In the glencarin glass it kicks up the alcohol note and then the maple syrup type smell in the background. Drinking it straight is not the smoothest but boy is it a bold white/blonde rum. This has a flavor you don't mess around with but its too much heat to be really enjoyed straight. In the diet coke, it is a wonderful rum that is on a level of nothing I had before from whites. Its deep and complex with long lasting after taste. I can say a bunch of taste notes but I much rather say if you see it buy it.
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.
I drink rum straight, which is the only way to drink this rum.
The taste is beautiful with a bouquet of different aroma's. It is a litle bit too sweet, therfore not suitable for mixing, nevertheless a very good rum which is in my personal top 5 of most favorite rums!
Rip me jib! This be a decent sippin' rum! Aye, she may be light in color, but don't go gettin' fooled by her appearance. This wench be gorgeous and full-bodied all the way down to her dark roots. On the nose, she smells sweeter than most, but solid with her oak and vanilla and caramel. On the tongue, she be not as sweet, but there be a buttery quality to the vanilla that first hits ya. Then there be a bit of citrus flavor. Not a hard citrus - nothin' to twist up your face or scare away the scurvy. It be subtle. Then there be a bit of oak, spices, and at the end, nuts. There be a hint of burn goin' down the hatch, but nothin' a few more shots won't fix. This be a smooth sippin' rum. Avast! If I had been blindfolded - as I have by many blondes - I would sworn on mother's eyes this be a dark rum. Might she be as good a rum as the Marquesas Blend or the Dark 24-Year? I dare say so, but give this lady a shot. She can more than handle herself. arrrgh!
I have mostly stayed with dark aged rums. When a friend brought this over I didn’t expect to like it, but I was very surprised. It has a rich full flavor with a perfect amount of sweetness. It was great to sip with a bit of ice.
