Recommendable to most
It is just a great drink. Easy on the tongue. Sweet vanilla all around. Dont't be surprised if you drink this bottle in one go. It's that easy going.
This makes a great after dinner sipper, a little sweet but easy on the palate and aged enough to take away most of the burn. I agree with some of the naysayers on it being sweet, but sometimes sweet is good. I won't go over the flavors, as they have been covered well in all the other reviews so I will just offer my humble opinion. If you enjoy a smooth, sweet rum, give it a try. If you want burn and dry, stay away. Great price too! I recommend.
First rum I liked sippin straight up. Before this just all the familiair cocktails. What a lovely smell, what a deep layered taste. I'm in the tropics, right on the beach. Sweetness, like sucking on fresh sugar cane, rasins drenched in sirup, thick although light in percentage. Come to think of it, could do fine with a bit more alcohol.
I am aware this drink is sugared and I am not a fan of additives in mine, like coloured whisky. However I do like it as it is and I will keep on liking it.
Now on to more, a new venture into the world of rums.
This was my first high quality sipper, and is still a gold standard for me. It has everything one would want from rum - sweetnes, complexity in taste, syrupiness, slight alcoholic burn...
Its a sipper so drink it neat; ice ruins its complexity, and mixing it is a cardinal sin
Not a bad rum. Easy to drink, and satisfying if you’re limited on options. Far better than the entry level Havana Club offerings at the bar, but pretty standard flavor profile.
I describe it as molasses, cal bit of caramel and something darker. Burnt sugar perhaps. Feels like a rum trying to be more important than it is, but likable nonetheless.
Not sure if ever buy a bottle for myself, as it’s pretty one dimensional, but a good option at the bar!
"The nose is dominated by notes of caramel, toffee and crème. On the back end of the aromas, I can detect a hint of smoke and pineapple"

"The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose"
Smells sweet. It is fruity, oranges, grapes and raisins with scents of chocolate and a sweet almost syrupy.
"The tasting notes on the site are very accurate vanilla, fudge/toffee sauce are noticeable as are notes of vanilla and a finish which is slightly bitter like cocoa which leaves a hit of oakiness on the taste buds. The finish is pretty short. ."
