Smooth and easy drinking without that "weird" Bacardi taste. Makes sense since it's from Don Q.

Vanilla, citrus and spice come to mind when drinking this rum. I do enjoy this neat as one of the only rums from Puerto Rico that I can say this about. I like the bottle presentation! Nice price for a light rum with nice flavor that can be sipped.

This one is fairly interesting. That is for a Puerto Rican White rum. I found it difficult for a rum of this supposed age to get passed a straight astringent nose, a very strong alcohol nose compared to don Q Cristal which is aged just one year and has a very subdued nose. The entry is quite rum like though and much more vigor than I would have thought for an aged white rum of up to 5 years even in a solera. There is a bit of burn a nice very rum like spice in the middle almost Barbados in style. There is a quick finish on this rum that leaves little to be remembered. This has to be mostly younger 1 year rum blended with some small amounts aged rums. Overall not terrible, this in my estimation is fairly pure with little to no additives, quite dry, and no fake vanilla.

I expected a little more on the entry and finish but the middle of this rum is quite pleasing for straight up consumption. for 23 dollars or whatever I paid near that it is not horrid and I would say one of the best Puerto Rican whites out there, but that is not saying much. It does have an interesting bottle though.

Overall in this category there are much better white rums with much better flavor and finish. While there is no incredibly bad flaw here there also is nothing that makes this one shine unless you are looking for a rum that shows astringent qualities.

Let's face it, light rums are not really designed for sipping. Caliche is a perfectly acceptable rum for making classic cocktails and exotic potions.

A nice drinkable rum, on the rocks or in a mixed drink. Toasted sugar notes with a hint of vanilla.

Many negative reviews and I'm not sure why. Its not stellar but its also not bad: I found the nose subtle and hinting of flowers and vanilla. Taste is warm with flavors of citrus, vanilla, and clove. A totally decent Puerto Rican rum for mixing daiquiris and mojitos. Column distilled, so you know its going to be light and floral.

Mixes well with tropical punch or anything pineapple and coconut tiki drinks!

Reminds me of an old school Puerto Rican local rum. Not bad to mix with, but not a sipper.

After finding several great cocktails to mix Caliche with in Bahama Bob's cocktail book, I'm forced to re-evaluate and kick this rum up a point. It's growing on me.

Not too bad of a rum, as far as whites go. Good for mixed drinks.
