Tasty, but not quite great
The smell pretty much reminds me of Bacardi Superior or Pascas White, it is dominated by vodka-like alcohol odor, which almost succeeds in subduing the remnants of citrus fruits smell. Smell is the worst part of the experience, the taste is smooth and pretty much muted, it is hints of citrus fruits, vanilla, and vodka. The aftertaste is, well, sorry to repeat myself - vodka. No hint of wood or anything else. This rum is not unpleasant, it is quite smooth, but it is unbelievably boring and filtered beyond recognition. When every rum producer is trying to impart as much smell and flavor to the final product as possible, it is beyond my understanding why someone actually removes these entertaining elements by filtering. In mixed drinks you can easily mistake this rum with vodka as its taste and smell almost disappear. I just cannot see the point why I should buy this again. My rum had round bottle (as seen on The Fat Rum Pirate), not the square one.
Zitrusnoten in der Nase.
Süßlich beim ersten Kontakt mit der Zunge. Mild. Karamellnoten.
Klarer sauberer Abgang.
Einfach zu trinken.
Unaufdringlich in Frozen Cherry Daiquiri.
N- Pale straw yellow hue gained from the oak aged. Nose in the molasses, sweet mints and nutty. Well clean, young banana and melon with citrus-y vanilla lace. (85/19)
P- Nutty and sticky, a healthy honey nuts bar with gentle sweetness, fine sour fruits with breezes of botanic herbs and boiled spices. (85/19)
F- Medium, lasting with earthy coats, finely sweet with soft oaks lingers. Is good to actually feel harmless to sip it neat. (86/20)

this is the best white rum I have had so far. a clear step up from the standard cuban offerings such as ron caney or havana club 3.
Bought a bottle of Elements 8 Platinum while vacationing in Guadeloupe. Unique bottle and label design. Dry, woody, citrus and pure alcohol to the nose and palate. Very strong burn at the end being so dry. This is a mixer rum more than a neat sipper.
This rum got very nice flavors but is very delicate thus leaving it to sip or make daiquiris with (or other simple cocktails where the rum is allowed to shine almost alone) it has some creamy buttery notes and is very smooth.
