An honest & robust, but not harsh rum, although with no special character or something really remarkable about it (but, hey, we are talking about a 5-years old rum, right!?). Spicyness & oakiness in right measure give this rum a warm aftertaste, and its price is a definite plus! A nice surprise!

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.

Sherry and caramel nose. Its a little light for mouth feel, smoky caramel tasting notes and the finish is quite short. A little longer in the barrel would probably add more character to this young rum.

This was one of my go to mixer rums very tasty but cruzan single barrel kinda won.

First tried this whilst on holiday in Antigua, I really enjoy the balance of this rum, great for summertime sipping neat, or with a decent ginger ale and ice. No added sugar, etc makes this an honest rum!

Pleasant, whisky-like dry English-style column still rum. Butter, caramel, oak. Worth keeping on your shelf as an excellent gold rum for mixing.

It’s light as advertised with some undercurrent of aging in barrels. But sometimes the alcohol is too much for sipping, and as for mixing, it’s just bland and the sweetness doesn’t shine. Not worth the ‘value’ play others are suggesting, but it’s not like you have to avoid it either. Drinkable for sure but not special or specifically enjoyable.

Great price on this rum. This island produces some great sweet flavours.

This rum was my first experience with an aged rum. My wife and I purchased a bottle on our honeymoon in Antigua back in 2012. Since then, on every anniversary we pour a little from the bottle. We just finished it.

As far as taste, sure there are better rums and more expensive rums, but this rum has a special place in my heart.
That being said, there are plenty of better runs out there. If not for the sentimental value, I'd rate a 5.
