Recommendable to most
The first taste is the alcohol, but quickly this develops into a warm, deep and rich rum. Not artificially sweet, just rum as rum should be. I drank this neat, but I think a drop of water or lime would bring out the flavours nicely. Excellent run.
This, at the time of writing, is currently my favourite rum. The taste is really good but the finish is utterly astonishing. It makes you smile after every sip. I didn't have massively high expectations when i bought this due to a lot of mixed reviews but i am so glad i bought this! I wish bars & pubs etc round my area would sell rum like this rather than Bacardi, Captain Morgans etc. I would finish their whole bottle no matter how much a double each time costs! Only reason i did not give a 10 as i am sure there will eventually be something i love even more, like possibly the Appleton Joy blend which i am dying to try.
This rum is a blend of Bourbon bask and also Madeira cask. So, it has light and bright flover.
However, I think that aging by 100% Bourbon cask is a better for Barbados flover.
So, Mount Gay XO is better for me.
Really nice dry rum. Good when you want start with rums without added sugar. Flavours of vanilla, wood, orange and sugar cane. Very well balanced and smooth.
This is an excellent rum. Nothing overpowering and has wonderful complex flavors of dried fruit, with a touch of spice and a wonderful subtle butterscotch after taste. I prefer this one neat as it accentuates the flavors, but it's still great on the rocks. On the rocks hides the more complex flavors, but hightens the smooth butterscotch tones. All said and done my local total wine has this for $21. There is nothing in that price that can compare. In fact, I'd put this up against rums double the price and it would be right at home.
