Recommendable to most
In general this rum is good and smooth good sipper. For its sweetnes and price it got not enough full body taste. Since its sweet and well known rum it tend to be overrated - yes there are better rums for its price.
Aroma: Sweetness dominates , then kinda fruity
Taste: Nice and smooth in begginnig due to its sweetness, little fruity then nothing big.
Pampero anniverasario: Pampero is cheaper, in taste its more full but less sweet.
Plantation 20yo anni.: For little more money you got much more in taste and aroma, plantation is little less sweet aswell
This is rum is the champs of my list for a few years now. The smoothnest of the product set im appart. Well Balanced. The alcool taste is slightly noticable at the end but all you taste is delicious vanilla dark sugar and a little toast.
After drinking about 25 different rums at the UK rumfest 2013 me and my drinking buddy were blown away by this and both brought a bottle. Tastes like nothing else.. Smooth, great flavour, sweet but not to sweet.
Not to be mixed ...
Good but a little simple, and after years in the wonderful world of rum, this one lack of something that make it ... less consensual.
Bon, mais trop passe partout, pas de caractère à lui...
Glad I was introduced to this modest priced Demerara rum. Excellent tastes of molasses and caramel. Something to sip regularly.
"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. ."
