In Baltimore, where I live, I can pick up 0.75L of this for $6.50. That's bottom-of-the-bottom shelf cheap, and with that in mind, I'm a decent fan of this rum. It tastes cheap, but not gross; if you breathe out through your nose to cut the ethanol bite, it's pleasantly sweet with just a little bit of body. I can sip it without a grimace, and if you mix it with things that taste good, it won't ruin them.

Booze is expensive, and sometimes I don't have the spare cash to invest in something that will both get me drunk and give me a nuanced taste experience. If you're already going cheap, I find this a much better bet than most anything I've found in this price range.

6 is a bit high, but I'm rating it for value, not just taste alone. Don't pay over 10$ for it, but I doubt you'll have to.

Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Calypso Gold Rum bottle and label design looks silly and cheap. Light amber color. Pure alcohol and nasty artificial flavors to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Mix it up for your own sanity. Not a neat sipper.

Ok I love trying new rums and well to put it bluntly stay clear of this mess. It has a smell similar to that of paint thinner. I however still felt adventurous and poured myself a shot. It is lightly smooth....but like that of water.....with a burn. The rum has no flavor at all. I also tested a shot with coke and it reminds me of cheap bar rum n cokes. Coke flavor remains with a slight burn.

This bottle will end up being dumped. Price....out by $10. I will probably stick to the higher end rums instead of exploring these cheap ones lol.
