Now this is some good stuff
Butterscotch in the nose, cream-soda on the palate when you breath out.
Very sweet, as rums go, but still very smooth.
The deep amber color is what first caught my eye. Once I pulled the cork, I was hooked. Brown sugar and caramel were the first to him my nose. I found some smokey tones on sipping, but an almost vanilla finish. A short but intense burn as it went down. I sipped it over one ice cube. I may have found my new favorite rum.
Found this one in Vegas last year; there was a spot on the shelf for the 23 but they were out of stock. I guess it wasn't meant to be.
I had originally grabbed the 12 in the LC years ago and found it to be unique compared to other rums I had tried up to that point in my life; it reminded me of toasted marshmallows.
This one is similar but I get more of toasted coconut and butterscotch; it sort of reminds me of Plantation XO, almost.
All and all; good rum, but not on my top shelf.
Although for the price, a great value.
This is my first foray into aged rums. I've always been impartial to Capt Morgan Private Stock or Bacardi's Oakheart for straight up. I left the refined drinking up to my love of scotches. I noticed here on this site that the 18yr had a slightly better review than the 23, and for the price, why not. I absolutely love it. I will get the 23 year after this is gone to give it a try, but I would recommend this to anyone.
I am anxious to try more aged rums now.
Great stuff with sting vanilla and butterscotch notes. Right at the edge of being too sweet perfect in fall, warm spice cocktails , neat, or as a float in a daiquiris
