Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bought a bottle of Cavalier Gold during the Holidays. Cheap bottle and label design. Light golden color. Strong oak and medicinal flavors to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end being so dry. Works as a mixer rum, but just barely.
It’s ok to use as a mixer when in Antigua where Goslings is to expensive when you do a false Dark ‘n’ Stormy.
a coupple of years ago sum of my friends and myself decided to try to rum because it was so cheap .. upon trying it .. it had a terrible smell and a very bad after tastee .. i would never put this in my mouth again..
We got presented this as a thank you from our hotel in Antigua as we were repeat customers. Nice gesture....not nice Rum. I would have scored it lower bit it was fine a as a mixer.
Sugar: 0 to 5 gpl. A faint medicinal smell and taste, but surprising good in a mixed drink. I received this as a gift because they couldn't find the Juan Santos 21 year old rum.
If you're looking for a complex and intense rum, try something else.
Not a sipping rum, mixer only. Drink if on a severe budget or a sailing regatta beach party at the end of night.
I don't believe this rum is widely exported, so get it on your next island jaunt. It's ready to add "the usual flavor" to your favorite mixed drinks at a price (in the Caribbean) that makes any extra splashes easy to justify. Fine for this purpose, but avoid judging it on its own merits without ice and a mixer.
One of the highlights of Antigua, and only available to me when I am there. I am rating this an 8, however it smooth mixed with a glass, and very tasty with tonic and a lime.
