Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I had this rum at a well known restaurant as a well brand for happy hour. Used Coke and lime and it was awful. Why would a well known restaurant serve this?
All you wannabee critics that give this product low marks should explain to the rest of us just exactly what you expected when you paid 1/3 less for it than other 'house' brands (like Bacardi). Further, anyone who buys the least expensive rum on the shelf and intends to drink it neat, up or on the rocks needs to have his/her head examined....or better still, maybe you need to stop drinking altogether. This rum is just fine for mixing, is not too sweet and has no offensive aftertaste. Its price point is exactly where it needs to be for the mixology market. Get a life people.
There is a tree bark, plastic, alcohol, caramel in the aroma.
Bitterness is dominant in the taste. Spicy cheese helps a lot.
Good for utilitarian purposes: warm, unload, load.
Very cheap as a Bacardi substitute. No flavor really....pretty much just alcohol. Kinda 'sweet' tasting I guess. Best to be saved for college kids lol.
Is a drincable option when in a money pinch. Mix heavy.
Goes best with cola or juice. As one reviewer said it has a "dirty sock" taste. I too noticed it and had to double check. I bought it for 9.99 at the local packy for the 4th of July weekend. Decent mixer, but that's it.
Not world-class by any stretch but at $7 where I live it has its uses.
Drank it neat. Not much complexity. Would only use as a mixer.
isnt much here in the way of flavor at all which is why it will probely mix well good choice if you dont want to taste your rum imo
Cheap alternative to Bacardi. Good for mixing. Nothing else.
Good choice for well rum offering. Mixes easily with coke and fruit juice. I am using this to do infusions with pineapple and bananas. Excellent value
Its sweet, good mixer, but ultimately at the end found it had a dirty old socks taste that was enough to put me off from buying it again. I'd get this in a pinch or was entertaining a lot of people I wasn't to overly concerned about impressing. Otherwise, its a pass.
This rum has a nice taste and mixes great with any fruit juices.
On the rocks this rum has a slightly astringent taste to it. There seems to be a very slight anise backing to it, but in my opinion this would work much better as a component in a mixed drink rather than a stand-alone.
Absolutely nothing but a mixer. Cheap inexpensive decent flavored mixer.
I don't think this rum is that bad.
Granted,it's not high end but it is superior to the other cheap rums(that cost more) & does just fine as a mixer.Just dandy for fruit juice & cola drinks & not too nasty straight . A little harsh
going down straight but there's a lot worse!
Best of the bottom shelf!
I got it to make frozen daiquiris with.
Would I drink it straight?
No. That's very obviously not what it's for. But as a mixer, I actually like it better than Captain Morgan, quite frankly. It's perfect for making a good frozen daiquiri with, and that's what I wanted.
Enjoyed a bottle of Castillo Silver Rum while vacationing in Las Vegas. Basic and cheap looking bottle and label design. Pure alcohol to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Mix this up with your favorite soda since this is not a neat sipper rum.
This light Puerto Rican rum wasnt by far the best but wasn't horrible compared to other light rums i have had in the past.and the price was right we purchased 3 cases for a wedding to make a simple rum punch drink for the masses.
