Voor wie rum, puur gedronken, nieuw is en op ontdekkingstocht gaat, ontdekt heel wat verschillende smaken. De ene ligt je al wat beter dan de andere. Of je houdt meer van Frans getinte, of Engels getinte of Spaans getinte rums.
Maar in mijn 10 jarig delen van lekkers heb ik nog nooit iemand ontmoet die deze rum als 'minder of niet lekker' heeft bestempeld.
Een ronde, volle, iets te zoete (maar vele nieuwkomers houden daarvan), rum met zware toetsen van caramel.
Evenwichtige balans met het alcohol gevoel, zowel qua geur als smaak.

I have to admit,as i tried it first i didnt understand its complexity. I smelled and tasted vanilla.And nothing more. After a while i made a new attempt and it concinced me,that this rum is a must-have . Oily ,rich flavours, butterscotch,banana, and this in one of the greatest looking bottles. I think its rebadged as Ron Botucal nowadays
This was on of the first rum i have tasted, very good and sweet with hints off coconut, banana and molasses.
Good price range and you get what you pay for.
Beginner rum and a good one.
After exploring more rum over the past year, I've downgraded this from a 10 to a 9. It's good but I've decided it's a sipper but a bit too sweet and has a slight burn for my taste. Here's what's left of my first impression: I tried this at Rum Fest in Louisville in early December 2014 and this was one of the standout rums people were talking about... and for good reason. Sweet, mellow and flavorful, definitely a sipper. I liked it so much I sampled it twice to be sure, then bought two bottles in Kentucky before driving home to the relative rum desert known as Ohio.
Bottle : I don't like this bottle to much, it´s hard to see any color and it´s impossible to see when you need to re-up.
Nose : The scent is pretty good but there is a tone of alcohol to it so the expectation is lowered.
Taste : The taste is full and rich and lacks the tone of alcohol which was a surprise.
Finish : the finish is ok and leaves you with that vanilla taste.
For the price, this one is sick. And everyone should have one in their home.
This rum has won all kinds of prices, and rightfully so.
I think it is the only rum in its price range that I enjoy sipping.
"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. ."
