A sweet nose when I opened the bottle, a hint of what I thought was plum on one occasion. The drinks starts slightly sweet with woody notes. There was a slight burn going down, but overall was pretty smooth. Overall I found that this rum was not overly complex and pretty good in a mix.

Smooth island rum without the cost. Hints of lime, and a lack of oak make this a very smooth finishing summer drink. Since the cost is inexpensive, that helps even more. It doesn't have the complex flavours of the top shelf rums obviously.

For only a 5 year rum of Barbados it shows quality and good balance. Deep amber in colour, Cayman Reef is warm on the first sip, and then a delicate sweetness builds, with vanilla and nutty flavours. Five years in barrel contributes some spicy and woody notes. Can be sipped but mixed drinks are great. 41$Can at LCBO.

Overall not a bad rum. I found it a little on the side for my taste but better than the average main stream garbage rums out there. It has a smooth finish’ amd notes of oak in there . Would be interesting to try the older version of this .

Too young to be a sipper. Not the best mixer. Very forgettable, especially as it’s priced slightly higher than similar rums.

Similar taste to other similarly priced Barbados rums such as mount gay. Probably a good mixer rum. Has a bit of a burn after going down neat, but not too strong

Aye, this be another sweet rum that the rum snobs will say ain't a rum because it be under 80 proof. To blazes with them! This rum be on par with Bumbu Original at half the price! Vanilla and caramel to be sure, and what tastes like chocolate, but no spices. There be no burn sendin' this down the hatch. If sweet rum not be to your liking, keep some anyway for your friends who are new to rum, the lovely ladies, and prospective crew members... Huzzah!

This is a great rum that's a step above what you'd normally find for a rum at a party. I love it for the value for money. Super easy to put it in anything or intrigue a guest with a corn and oil! :)

Tonight's Rum, a milestone, number 150, Cayman Reef Rum from Barbados. On the nose, it's got a hint of honey underneath a stronger almond and caramel bouquet. Perhaps even a bit of pepper in there. The first notes in the mouth are soft like the bouquet. It’s rich but not overpowering, chocolate and macadamia nut come through. Not spicy as with some rums. A little bit of orange comes through on the finish. In the throat, it continues with its soft pallet, disappearing as you swallow. Not harsh at all. The true finish does leave a bit spice behind, not overwhelming at all. This is a nice Rum however could use a bit more sweetness and flavor. 7 out of 10. OK served neat.
