Plain, but smooth start and finish. Will do on a long sail through hot weather.

This is a good mixer. 1 level higher than the bacardi. But a little bit expensive for what you get. I prefer Brugal white.

Better than it’s Bicardi counterpart but I prefer the Don Q gold. Okay for everyday mixing

Very light floral nose. Light vanilla bean. So neutral not sure what to do but mix. I prefer more of everything.

Only with coke for me. Not as a sipper. Bit blend taste as a regular white rum

Sampled in a snifter neat and in tiki cocktails. Aroma is extremely light but crisp, clean and smooth. No medicinal or hot notes. Hints of grassy sugar cane. A touch of perceived sweetness. Again it's very light.
The flavor is lightly sweet and warming. Hints of grass, sugar cane. Not a whole lot here to comment on. Nothing offensive or off here, just very, very light and neutral. Alcohol is warm but not at all hot. Smooth on the palate. Very light slightly drying and bitter finish. Overall this makes a fine mixer for light cocktails, especially for someone not wanting a stronger rum influence. I'd personally go for Flor de Cana 4 year or Plantation 3-Star as they have much more character and add more to the drink but I have nothing negative to say here. Similarly priced and much much better than Bacardi Superior.

This had a sharp taste, but this doesn't really taste like a rum. Will need to try again to determine what it's flavor profiles are.

This was about as bad as I figured, Don Q and as blanco as can be.

Pleasant aroma, very floral. Smooth, nuetral flavor. Nice in daqari, mixes well with most mixers. I like

Nose: some medicine
Palate: harsh, spicy, some menthol (!)
Not much more to say here. I‘ve had much better crystal rums (Santa Cruz from Tenerife, for example).
Info: Bottle looks different now.
