Nice 5 year old, but still cocktail rum. Spicy and with character and candy like smell.

Color : Amber
Flavour : Mellow rum with ripe fruits, sweet spices like cacao & tonka
Palate : Well balanced, med-bodied

A great rum in long drinks like Mojito & Hurricane, or with ginger ale.

Excellent on the rocks (probably too hot for sipping neat), nicely complex and oaky. Mix it with coconut water and you have the world's greatest drink. Also great with cola and ginger beer. At between $12-$17 this can't be beat for value.

Great colour in this rum. Not as smooth as the El Dorado rums that are aged longer but if you wish to mix with a rum, this one will do the trick excellently. My preference is with Cola. The rum can be smoothed greatly if aged in an oak barrel. After only a month there was a tremendous difference. But as is, it is still a great staple of my bar since it is priced well, has some solid flavouring and mixes well.

It's a shame you can't really buy this outside Guyana, as it's a very yummy rum.
