N- Vanilla and honey with subtle pepper and mineral at the backdrop. All fine but remains basic and sugary at initial stage, but develop with layers of earthiness in the nuances of fresh leafs, sour milk and ashy smokes. Rum macerated berries, orange and jammy with molasses undertone. (86/20)

P- Lovely bright and full at low proof with zesty high notes remains there for a long time. Then some oak phenol lingers with toasted sugar bread. Not sure about any additive, probably it does at minimal dosage, but feel pure and clean. (87/21)

F- Medium, clean, pepper with coat of oak for boldness, smooth with hint of wax. (87/21)

B/B- 87/21

Weighted Rate- 83pt

This is great basic rum that goes on some party with ice, and gets job done.
Definitly not a sipper that I would cherish moments on friday evenings, but still it is better than vodka and cheap whisky

Final verdict:
I will definitly give it another shot on some occasion

It’ll definitely not disappoint when you need an aged Bajan on budget. It’ll gladly take a backseat beautifully if you’re making ‘gentle’ cocktails. Along with the Macaw It’s a pantry rum.

Sugar: 0-5 GPL. Aromas and tastes of vanilla, oak, a bit of caramel and spices. A bit of a burn on the palate but nothing to make you cringe. There is a sweetness in the rum and I know that R.L. Seale or Doorly's doesn't add anything to their rums so it's a pleasant surprise. Well balanced rum that you could sip if there was nothing else but I suggest a piece of ice. It mixes really well and is well priced.
Worth having in your bar.

Vôňa spočiatku alkoholová, po čase vanilka, chuť veľmi príjemná, hrejivá. Rum z Barbadosu, teda rum - žiadne aditíva, bez cukru. Môj prvý rum, ktorý mi veľmi zachutil a s ktorým budem porovnávať ďalej.

This is a simple mixing rum. There are no harsh, overpowering flavors. It's quite smooth considering its age, but, ultimately, it's too light-tasting & simple to be much of a sipper. Mixer only.

Ένα μπουκαλάκι το οποίο καθαρίσαμε "εν μία ριπή" μαζί με τον φίλο μου τον Μ.....ο στην συναυλία των Artic Monkeys !!!??!!! Ναι ..... δε ξέρω αν η γενικότερη ευφορία βοήθησε ώστε να απολαύσουμε στο μέγιστο αυτό το ρούμι ..... Σίγουρα όμως είναι ευκολόπιοτο, με ωραία αρώματα, μέτρια ένταση και επίγευση. Αν προσπαθήσω να το παρομοιάσω με κάποιο , τότε σίγουρα θα το παρομοίαζα με το Plantation 5 .... Καλή επιλογή στα 25€.

Nice mixing rum I personally prefer the plantation 5 but it's almost as nice. Barbados make good rum you cant get away from that
