Vůně: Je příjemná, sladší. 6/10
Chuť: Je sladká, příjemná, ale po chvilce po ní není ani památky. 5/10

Není to špatný rum, jen je vcelku nezapamatovatelný.
Za cenu 450kč raději přídám stovku navíc a kupuju 12letý El Dorado.

Koupil/nekoupil znovu: Nekoupil

Well, this rum is nothing superior. But also, it doesn't make itself something, it isn't. And yet, it becomes great rum. And great friend. It have very very smooth taste with little sweetness, very simple but understanding palate of taste, rather light and fruity and very pleasant spring smell. And that makes it excellent relaxing sipper. Kick-less, friendly, familiar, soothing. At room temperature diluted with small drip of water, it could accompany you for hours, leaving you relaxed. My favourite blend but soothing sipper. As sipper for common relaxing occasions - excellent. As complex rum for tasting and deep enjoying - hardly no. AS mixer - any drink kill it's perks, especially Cola. So no. take a word from my review and turn another cheek for this friendly fellow.

The title says it all. Hard to believe that you can buy a ‘good’ sipping rum for under $30 (Canadian). Very smooth on it’s own with just a hint of alcohol astringency. At the price there’s no shame in mixing it either if that’s your thing.

This rum changed me from being a single malt whiskey drinker to a rum sipper. I got my eyes on it in the local liqueurstore and I thought to myself why not try something new and not spend a fortune on a single malt whiskey bottle. For the price it cost i thought if it taste like crap i could use it for cleaning the wounds on my neighbours dog after being attacked by wild cats and dont feel bad about it. After this plantation rum i dont feel the need for expensive whiskey anymore when you can get this so much cheaper. It smells like raisins and banana with an inviting note. The taste is great, sweet and tones of vanilla, raisins and banana. A bit young in taste, 3 years altogether on casks give it a more sharpness to the taste instead of roundness. Although i cannot give more then a 6 because of me being a rookie in the rum world. I need to try more rums first to compare it with, can't give a ten on my first rum. Then i can maybe bring up the score on it.

Vôňa nie je výrazná, farba svetlá, fľaša pekná "reprezentačná" (asi aj dôvod prečo som si ho kúpil) :). V chuti je cítiť dub (až bourbon - po zrení v sudde), trošku vanilku a pre mňa akurátnu jemnú nasladlosť. Na konci to prechádza až na jemné trpnutie jazyka, úst a hrejivý pocit :) Rum som kúpil za 17€/fľaša, neurazil, stojí za ochutnanie, ale napr. Pampero Aniversario mi prišiel zaujímavejší.

I really just started to explore rum so not a lot to compare but this is one you should get at least once! Good taste, nice price and just a good drink overall!

A fantastic rum that I compare all other rums against.

Sweet but not sugary, fruity with vanilla and hints of alcohol

Good for mixing and just as is. Goes down easy and blends well when mixed

Did not expect a lot from this youngster. Got sugar vs alcohol. Some clue in between refers to Single Amburana Cask which I did not like as well.
May be it is Ok in cocktails? Dunno :)

Balanced flavor, mild. Pleasant aroma. Good value for money.

So, I'm pretty new with drinking rum. Specially with drinking different types of rum.
I got a bigger salary a few months ago, and wanted to try something with a higher quality than Captain Morgan Spiced gold. At the local liquerstore they had either this og Havana club 3yo. I chose this bottle and opened it some days later.

Short story, I thought it tasted great, but I liked the smell of it better than the taste.
Tried to mix it and drink it neat.
