I bought a bottle because my local shop has run out of Plantation 3 Stars. This is similar stuff, a good quality, quite complex white rum with an interesting tropical mix on the nose and a pronounced waft of coconut. I enjoy it neat, but it comes into its own in a daiquiri.

A good one to have on the shelf. Mixes well with everything, and makes a wonderful daiquiri. When I don't want to mix the more expensive Cana Brava, I reach for this one.

I find this to be a wonderful rum for mixing. It's fairly mild, and blends well with other flavors when used in a background role, but unlike most basic white rums the flavor that it does have is good enough to make spirit-forward drinks work. Can be consumed straight, but it's not terribly interesting.

A great easy white rum. The key word here is subtle. Subtle smokey aroma from the aging barrels I assume. Taste begins sweet, but ends quick with a bitter nutmeg/cacao aftertaste and flash of coconut in the middle. Would be great for mixing, but not quite for sipping.

Nothing that completely stand out on this but For the price I paid around £10 it’s a decent mixer. Nuff said

40% ABV. This rum was smooth and slightly sweet. Almost no hint of off-putting alcohol aroma. Maybe the slightest bit of coconut. Not too different from the Real McCoy 3, though I'd choose the latter any day :)

Update 12/17 - The Dec. 23 box in the 2017 DbtD rum advent calendar. Dreaming of a "white" Christmas, are we?

Delicate nose. Coconut and tropical fruits. Palate: bubblegum, cherries, vanilla, caramel. Hint of brine. Short in flavor, short in finish. Recommended for those choosing between this and Bacardi (no contest), or those wanting a very mild white rum with hints of fruit.

7-/6+
