That's some good stuff
Out of the three the 18 yr is the standard for me. It has the perfect balance, nothing overbearing like many with molasses. I highly recommend it!
Compared to the 23, the 18 comes off with a bright, fruity, butterscotch finish that I didn't enjoy. It's not necessarily sweeter, but it's more one-dimensional. Lacking the nuances of oak and tobacco that make the 23 so amazing. Certainly drinkable in it's own right, but if both bottles are on the shelf, it's a no brainer for me to grab the 23. In fact, I think I'd reach for a variety of other bottles over this one. Mount Gay XO, Ron Zacapa 23, etc.
Bought this when the owner of a bar recommended it to me. Its actually a little bit smoother than the 23 year. Sweet but not too much and tons of flavor.
The bottle is beutyful and give high expectations. It is necessery to let it breathe and kep in mind this is Agricola rum and should be compared towards other Agricola rums. Normally Agricola is from the French Caribbean part but not this one.
Good rum, a bit more oaky and smoother than the 12 year. All in all though not worth the additional price. 12 year is a must try though.
A solid, if run-of-the-mill sipping rum. Typical flavors of caramel and vanilla. Balanced sweetness. Will update if I get another chance.
Update 11/17: After tasting over a hundred more rums since my original rating, I re-tried another in this range, and it's got curiously strong vanilla notes. I'm wary.
Sherry, Molasses, Vanilla, Caramel make this different and easy to enjoy, great aroma, loses its body if you mix it; this is best straight, fantastic to sip but loses its persona mixed. Definitely worth a try.
The nose is truly amazing, I am smelling like caramelised grilled bananas but I am seing a liquor, amazing.
Taste toffee, amazing smoothness with a little after burn, just to remind you you are drinking a 40% rum.
Overall a fantastic rum when you know its sugar content to be so low, amazing (did I say amazing enough?).
