A lot of people are rating this high then me. So I need to try again to see what I am missing. This had oak, grass and earthy tones.

Not that much sweetened. Nice earthly scent but the taste... Its similar to that anti-mosquito plug-in repelents - perfumy taste that hides a chemical disaster. Leave this one to teenagers and their experiments. For a similar price buy yourself Mount Gay XO. Or Doorlys etc. In short proper rums, that taste like rums. After tasting this next to MG XO, I was really close to throwing up.

I enjoy this good aroma rum. Body of this rum is a little thin. But smooth, not too sweet.
Never get tired.

An old batch of this series. Double-distilled and matured in American oak before a second maturation period in sherry casks.

N- Caramel and stewed fruits, herbal tea with layer of earthiness to keep it authentic. Soft breezy oak, and floral, again touch of feint from this multiple distilled spirits. White raisin, sour plum and dried fruit intertwined. (84/18)

P- Thin body, sweet kiwi, young banana and oak smokes, Easy on palate with touch of dusty oak, which is not a bad thing in this case. (83/18)

F- Medium, plums, clean oak with semi dry finish, touch of bitter sweet herbs. (85/19)

B/B- 84/18, having same issue to term with the low strength that restricted any profound flavours of the rum to come thru.

Smells great, but dull after taste. Makes me wanna try something else.

This was best at Top of the Market in San Diego. A little rough - a lime smoothed it out some.

Smooth Rum, not to strong.. sweet good for a neat drink without ice
