Again, as with the 3 yr its a pretty basic rum. not a lot to say really but could do worse in a cuba libre...

This is a pretty good mixing rum, but not nearly as smooth or tasty as the ED12 or ED15. Hits the palate with the simple taste of rum, followed by a good amount of Navy rum type burn when sipped alone. In our house, its is used as a mixer, gives a good taste and kick to cola. Pyrat will remain my goto for the rum and coke scene however.

For me, it's not quite a rum to sip. Maybe more aging than 5 years would improve it. $ 18 at the supermarket.

Nice rum, but not a touch on the 12 year and unfortunately there are better rums for the price. It tastes rather watered down straight, but retains a little character in cocktails where I think this one will certainly shine.

Tried it on the rock, yikes, best enjoyed with a little lime and some other type of pollutant like ginger ale or coke.

Begins with a bite but can be mellowed with many slices of lime. OK rum but not my favorite. Really a mixer rum.

I have often used this in cocktails but it's not very fun to sip on. I prefer it to the 8 year as there is less woodiness to get in the way but would probably rather use something like the Plantation 5 Year Barbados in my drinks.

This rum works, not as a sipper, but works decently in a cocktail.

Had read that this was a good value rum and can't really disagree. Comes off smokey and you definitely get a taste of caramel which is nice but doesn't do enough to overcome the alcohol aftertaste. Definitely meant for mixing and nothing more.
