Not bad for the price. Great mixer. Nice to have another economical mixer

This mellow yellow is smooth. Not high in flavour but a good mixing rum that beats bacardi.

Had this many times over the years, maybe not a great straight sipper, but always works well in cocktails! And you CAN sip it, it’s decent no matter what you use it for.

You can't go wrong with Cruzan Gold for Planters Punch, daiquiris, etc. Every Cruzan straight rum ( I haven't tried the flavored ones) is a good choice. Consistently good quality. The world would be a better place if Cruzan overtook Bacardi as the most common rum available. They really need to work on their marketing.

This isn't really the greatest for aged rums but it works in a pinch. Kind of like the Budweiser of Beers it is very common and overhyped. On the rocks with a splash of coke and limes it makes a decent Cuba Libre. Give this to your friends on the rocks if you dare.

It’s cheap, easy to find, comes in a large bottle, and doesn’t taste like crap. It’s the perfect rum for a rum n’ coke.

Good budget mixer. Slightly sweet, and drinkable.

Unfortunately I never tried this brand before they were bought by Beam Suntory. I have heard that it was better befoe the sale. At any rate not terrible as a mixer but not for sipping. My biggest complaint is the vanilla extract flavor. But if your going to a party were you just need to bring something not a bad choice. Be sure to bring the Coke as well.

OK, first the price - can't be beat. This is the best rum for the money and I'd take it over many more expensive rums. That said, it's not going to wow you with flavor, but it's not too sweet (which is my preference) and it is smoother than most for drinking on the rocks. Since Myers was my default rum, this has definitely replaced it!

This rum has a rummy, smooth flavor. It has some vanilla notes from the oak. It does taste pretty sweet, but in a good way.
