Like it a lot. One of the best so far I've tried. Closer to dry rum than Panamians, but it is still pleasanly sweet. Oak, fruits on nose. Not very long, but strong after taste

To be entirely honest, this one is similar to the 23. The main difference between the two is that the 23 is somewhat smoother, as age tends to do to any alcohol that lends itself to aging.

Otherwise, however, this one is almost as good. I mainly gave it a 7 simply because it isn't as smooth, and that smoothness is something I value. It has a very similar flavor profile to the 23, and, thus, similar drinkability. I absolutely recommend it.

Velmi dobrý, jemný rum. Pokud vím, tak by mělo jít o klasický stařený rum. Nikoliv míchaný. Svou vanilkovo-dubovou chutí a jemností je velmi dobrou volbou.

Dolce ma non stucchevole, corposo ed ottimo aroma, rum da provare assolutamente. Molto bella pure la bottiglia

Very good. Complex and balanced. Sweet, with a hint of a (good) burn. Taste of vanilla, almond and caramel. Nice long finish.

in a tasting round of 15 people the average was a nine. A rum, everybody would like to have in his bar at home. Smooth, fruity long lovely finish. up to 18 years old dom rep rums. in the mouth full of fruit. especially vanilla, sherry, dry fruits and raisin. not a big difference to the 23 year old one.

Very good dry rum. In mouth flavours of honey, almonds, vanilla, oak and sherry. Very smooth rum good for sipping for the whole evening.

Upgraded to 9 because it simply great.

I love this rum , it is sweet it has a vanilla caramel flavour and boy howdy it’s good
To expensive here in Canada but south of the border this price is very reasonable I’d pick up a case if I could bring it back and not get dinged , yep yep pick up a bottle and enjoy 😉👍👍

What an inviting aroma!
As always, I'm drinking my rum neat and this is another one that gently caresses your tongue.
It does feel like it's missing something in the finish to fully embrace me, but this is great quality rum.

A mid priced rum that hold it’s value. The nose is somewhat buttery with notes of cream brulee, vanilla seeds, caramel and perhaps a hint of cherry sauce and oak. Real nice.
The taste is medium bodied and semi dry with butterscotch and vanilla, finishing on well integrated and balanced tobacco leaves and oak that stays pleasently in the mouth for a while.
It’s very nice but not very adventurous.
