Despite "AGED RUM" being so dominant on the label, this is only a 2-year old rum.
When you allow for this and factor in the very reasonable price this is very much a case of getting what you paid for, if not a little bit more.
The nose is subdued and not complex.
The rum is actually more smooth than expected for only a 2-year old.
The mouth feel is neither good nor bad and there is not much for lingering taste.
Drinkable on its own, however likely better suited as a mixer for most.
Certainly worthy of being included in the liquor cabinet for mixed drinks.

For an entry level, opening price point this is a quality rum. Just sweet enough, mellow easy. It's a lot of rum at a reasonable price.

Nothing high quality, but it is amazing for the price point. Good as a daily mixer.

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 is light in body and in taste. Like drinking straight alcohol. Needs to be heavily mixed to be tolerable.

Typical rack liquor in the USVI. It gets a 7 because it not only taste better than Bacardi but its cheaper. The go to mixer is the best I can $ay.

Its fairly mellow, working great in mixed drinks. There is a nice sweet finish of molasses and vanilla. Also used this in an aged eggnog recipe with gosling's rum (as well as with whiskey and cognac) and the final product was superb.

Smooth body and finish for the price would definently buy again .. good for mixing too .

Not sure why to choose the white over this rum at the same price. Much better for classic mixing drinks. Holds up slightly higher in sipping also.

Cruzan Gold is my favorite all around rum, mainly for mixing. Smooth, flavorful, and nice aroma, without braking the bank. I have paid between $13 and $16 per 750 or liter, depending where I buy it. I make Mai Tais with Cruzan Gold and Coruba dark (see my review of Coruba). Not enough flavor, in my opinion, for sipping, as I like the darker rums for that, but not bad in a pinch, especially with an ice cube to mellow out the bite. Awesome with cola. It gets an 7 for being the best I've found so far in it's price range.

Just ok, fairly smooth, not much aroma no funk. Mixer.
