Tasty, but not quite great
I have developed a genuine interest in blended rums, and decided to go with this rum. It's definitely not a disappointment, but it has some surprises. Colour-wise it's really light, only slighter more opaque than transparent. It smells and tastes really smooth, but it has a kick once swallowed. It's a nice blend of Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados rums and is quite balanced. It first reminded me of Marama but it's less spicy. It has a nice smooth smokeyness and sweetish overtones. The heavier tones start to emerge in the back of the mouth a bit later, along with some of the spices. Definitely worth trying if you're interested in less-intense flavours.
Virgin Gorda is a rum from Trinidad, Jamaica and Barbados that is blended together for a relaxed taste of the Caribbean. The bottle looks high end, label is quite artsy. Pity that the color is very light, strong alcohol to the nose and more alcohol and burn at the end. Dry as one can have with some vanilla at the backend.
Light in colour and flavour, slight vanilla notes and easy to drink but not enough flavour of any description to persuade me to order this again.
Quite dry rum which I am not a fan of, very close to bourbon or cognac, strong taste of alcohol although the variety of tastes is good after half a glass when you get used to it. Similar to Pussers basic rum so if you are a fan, go for it
this is a very light golden rum without any flavour at all. This was a disappointment and very surprised at lack of flavours this rum actually had ..
A little bit of sweetness acompanies the soft yet well established Caribbean Rum taste. The aftertaste is very slightly felt and diminishes pretty fast. Plus points for the bottle design.
