Smooth with a non-cloying sweetness. Reminiscent of maple syrup. My favorite go-to rum. I only have five bottles, and I don't know how I will make it last.

UPDATE: I now own 46 bottles, having cleared out the inventory of California, Arizona, and Minnesota. I'm also upgrading my rating from 9 to 10, which only stands to reason. If this is one's go-to favorite, then a 10 rating only makes sense. Otherwise, what does a "10" really mean?

Très bon rhum, assez similaire au 1824. Très doux et délicieux, un vrai nectar. Même si j’ai une préférence pour le 1824 qui dure plus longtemps en bouche et qui est un peu plus sec, celui ci n’en ai pas moins excellent.
Very good rum, quite similar to the 1824. Very smooth and delicious, amazing. Although I prefer the 1824 because it last longer in the mouth and is slightly drier, this one is excellent as well.

Too much oak, too close to whisky for me. And way too expensive for what you get

One of my favourite rums, great on ice.
Just a hint of bourbon from the cask.

The vanilla that supposedly comes from 1st fill bourbon is just an artificial essence vanilla. Anyone who's tastes numerous rums and whiskies from 1st fill bourbon casks can tell this in a second. What a shame, Angostura.

I bought this bottle a few months back and at first I wasn’t a huge fan. After a few sessions I have really started to love the complex oak finish this one has. It starts with a sweet rum and finishes likes a nice aged bourbon. I would recommend this to any person who prefers whiskey and scotch, but wants to try rums.

Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for £8 after the trying the 17 18 and 19. It's spent 10 years in oak casks and another 6 in French ex cognac.

Nose is inviting with caramel and fruit and touch of complexity. Very nice flavour sweet and rich in the mouth wonderfully smooth. Just delightful to sip.

Added coffee flavor like in those Dictador rums, they do not make it anymore but there is nothing to regret.

I thought it was completely sold out in Europe, but then I found some bottles on a German site to complete my last bottle. So now I have four of it.
In the aroma you smell nuts and it’s quite sweet, but not too sweet. The taste is very smooth, len and sweet. The sweetness is a little bit alike almond paste. In the finish I believe you can recognise both apple, vanilla and chocolate.
If you get the opportunity to buy a bottle of it, don’t hesitate. BUY IT!!!
Now I also have tested the 3rd Edition but it didn’t reach the level of the 1st and 2nd.
