You get a big taste of cinnamon and pepper which would attribute to somewhat of a burn plus the alcohol will only elevate the heat. It has a moderate sweetness with vanilla, oak, tobacco and Werther's candies(caramel)!
This could be a decent sipper, though I'd go for the XO instead for about 8 dollars more at Total Wine And more.

Lemon vanilla flavir, spicy and oak barrel. Modest as expected

Very strong flavor of cinnamon. Actually produces a burning sensation in my mouth. (Capsicum source also added?) Label says "artisan". Seems the opposite of artisan to me- processed food. Might be good in mixed drinks, but I don't drink mixed drinks. So problem is label. If you drink rum for the pleasure of the flavor of rum, avoid this.

It’s not terrible. A bit harsh to sip but good enough to mix. It’s very inexpensive but can only be bought at total wine.

A few months ago, I started out with the most expensive rum from Kaniche, which is their Perfeccion from Panama. It was just too disgustingly sweet for my tastes. Some time later, I dropped down to their XO from Barbados, which I liked a little better despite both being sweet rums with about 25 gpl of added sugar. So today, I dropped down to their cheapest one, their Reserve for only $17 US. It also has about 40% less added sugar than it's two more expensive siblings.

It is pale amber in color and cinnamon dominates the aroma and the taste. It tastes a LOT like Foursquare Spiced but not nearly as much cinnamon, so for those that like that spiced rum, you will also probably like this spiced rum. I originally had this one classified as Semi-Dry before opening. Then I had no choice except to classify it as a Spiced Rum, and a pretty good one at that.

Update 2 days later: Last night, I had only about 2 ounces of this one as a nightcap. I was then woken up only a few hours later with my internal plumbing having gone havoc. This spiced rum did it to me. In the past, when this happened to me, I would drop my rating down to a 5 so that I would never buy it again. However, it is really not fair to lower my rating for this tasty spiced rum just because it does a number on me. Instead of pouring it down the drain, I will save it for my Thanksgiving cooking project.

Tasty but a little too harsh for sipping. Maybe it's the spices that add heat, but a little longer aging would make this much smoother

Not my style for sipping, but it mixed well. I liked the fact that they kept it a lighter gold color instead of darkening it.
