Easily consumable in a bind
Reading some of these reviews, I really gotta wonder. I get no harsh initial burn, no drain cleaner taste, no hot finish - just a solid white rum with enough flavor (mostly unripe banana and coconut ) to make interesting mixed drinks but which is not unpleasant to sip. Maybe someone let their bottle sit in the sun too long? (Very bad for alcohol).
A relatively neutral nose with subtle unripe fruits like pineapple and banana. Perhaps a little hint of coconut in there as well. The palate is light, delicious and refined with a hint of the fruity notes mentioned above. Leans towards the dry side but not in a tannic way. Great refined white, is you need something that doesn't stand out to much in your cocktail. Can be had neat as well.
I bought this for some home experiments, but felt the need to taste it before I began. It was not bad, but reminded me of a tequila for some reason. Probably lack of sleep. :) It would be great for addition to some cocktails, but I probably wouldn't sip it.
Now, I'll see how it tastes after a maple stick has been submerged for a couple of weeks.
At this price point, an age statement and notable flavor profile should earn a decent score on value alone. Better than most "white" rums in the price range, probably not a sipper but definitely up to the task in cocktails like a daquiri.
For the price conscious.
Nowhere near as good as probitas for complexity in a white rum, but perfectly good in a mixed drink, and superior to most other white rums out there in this price range or below.
