Soft taste, a bit darker, fruity flavor. Just a bit too narrow taste

Something with its taste, especially finish is puling my rating of it down. I am glad that I had only 1 glass of this so I didn't drown my money into botlle...

Final verdict: I will not buy it again

This is matured in American oak bourbon barrels for at least 12 years
when it is blended and re-casked.
Taste of Vanilla, honey , caramel and Bourbon.
Leaves a little bitter taste in the mouth,
so it's just a good rum but nothing more.

Výborný rum s lehkým kávovo-tabáko-karamelovým nádechem. Výrazný propolis a plástve za mně bod ubírají na 7b, ale věřím, že u někoho právě propolis požene tuhle flašku o 2b výš.

Taste 7,6/10. I dont like whisky-semidry taste but this one is nice for bourbon style rum with some touch sweetnes (i would like little more). Also it has great aroma and you can feel the aged rum in your drink not fake solera.

This is hands down a great rum, but I wouldn't say it is for everyone. A lot of rum drinkers may like a rum with notes of vanilla or coffee and sweetness...and while you can smell some and taste a hint this is truly a sophisticated smokey/oaky rum. As noted by some others...great with a cigar, and honestly is one of those rums that is kind of like a whisky. It is a great rum. But as I noted, not for everyone

I think it needs some minutes in the glass. In the aroma and taste you can find some vanilla, nuts and dried fruit I think. It’s smooth and the sweetness is quite balanced compared to the 1919. Rate 7,5.

Since I liked their 1919 rum, I finally bought a bottle of this to give it a try. I had planned on driving 40 miles to test one ounce at a bar, but those tests only rule out rums that I would never buy. One also cannot adequately judge a rum from just one ounce. I am running out of good cheap rums to buy, so this was a good $58 gamble.

This is a semi-dry rum from Trinidad and has 17 gpl of added sugar. The aroma is of leather. The taste is of fruit and leather. The after taste is the same. It is darker than their 1919 and the flavors are more pronounced. Is it worth another $22 per bottle more than their 1919? That has yet to be seen when the bottle is finally empty a few months down the road. At least it will last for more than 4 months because it has less than 20 gpl of added sugar.

Nice round flavor that Pairs excellent with dark chocolate and Fried fruit. The oak and fruit flavors are good afterparty you rest it for a while.
