Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I bought this bottle on the recommendation of a local package store. Unfortunately it's not worth the $45. Overall it's smooth and not overly sweet - the way I like my rum, but there is a pungent sawdust aroma and flavor that overpowers every sip. Almost makes it hard to drink. I've been mixing what's left with Flor de Cana 12 and that has helped tone it down a bit. Won't purchase again.
It's smell pretty harsh, but it has a very light burn to it. It is rather smooth, and has that whiskey taste to it
I thought I'd try a bottle of this and the 12 year due to the 12 year's good reviews. I tried this first, and this is really good! Tastes and smells of oak, molasses, and a light hint of bourbon. I like that it's somewhat sweet, unlike many other bourbon aged rums.
My first Colombian rum, a little hot with a dry finish. The older version is better.
