This rum gets better after some months in the bottle. It's first a little bit harsh.

I get some old celar in the nose, like in the Kirk& Sweeney 12. That's a smell of apricot with wood.
The taste starts also with the old celar, apricot with wood and vanilla. Quite simple taste, there is spice, some tanins and some alcohol in the finish.
Not very complex and young rum but not bad for the price.

Nose: vanilla, white oak, burned sugar, toasted cask, some apricot and peach, old celar
Taste: apricot, white oak, vanilla, soem burned sugar, peach
Finish: spice, some tanins, white oak and apricot

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruits: 2/5
Spice: 3/5
Mildness: 2.5/5
Complexity: 2/5
Value (18€): 3/5

Great tasting dram. TOFFE. CARAMEL, NOT TOO SWEET. Enjoyable.

The nose is rich, it reminds me of older sipping rums, molasses, orange peel, in the taste there is toffee, oak and dried fruits, the aftertaste goes towards bitter, with hint of coconut. Quite smooth for 5y old, can be sipped. No sugar added, quite decent for the money, with distinctive taste. As I do not fully appreciate the bitter tones the score between 6 and 7. In direct comparison with another 5y old made by Angostura, I am not trying to suggest there is some similarity in these two - I just happened to buy these two together, I like Angostura a bit more.

Ya know...Its good. Not much to the nose but tastes great with a nice smooth finish of vanilla, light molasses. Obviously not to complex but tasty and easy to drink.

Good rum for the price. Worth a try for sure if you need some rum

Definitely not a sipper. Harsh. No depth. Might make an ok mixer. Might not. Fairly forgettable really.

This rum tastes nice. It is quite drinkable but it does not have any real unique taste.
