...and surprisingly good for such a young rum. Good tip.

This is low price rum, so I did not expect much.
I was surprised to drink.
The arome is like a butter caramel. Taste is sweet and smooth, a little creamy, easy to drink.
This is not the best rum, but it is very good taste for this price.

I was probably spoiled by trying the 10 yr old a few weeks back as that was delicious.. but this is fine just not as good. Nice caramel , vanilla and molasses on the nose. Dryish rum in the mouth , spicey , a bit smokey.
Short finish , maybe a bit thin.
It is a sipper but to me a good quality mixer both with cola or ginger beer. Also makes a great " Old Fashioned"

I find it rather harsh. The nose isn't half-bad, but I strain to search for interesting and pleasant qualities. The distillate seems to be of poor quality, which is turned to depend heavily on the cask to both clean it up and add pleasant qualities. Maybe the older ones are better, but I actually don't care much for this one...

Ωραίο not sweet rum . Στιβαρό (θυμίζει whiskey) και σου αφήνει μια ευχάριστη αίσθηση στο τελείωμα (Επιβεβαιώνει το ότι είναι ρούμι). Τίμιο , λογικό γι αυτούς που δεν τους αρέσουν τα λικέρ. Δεν μπαίνει στη λίστα με τα αγαπημένα μου (8+) .... για λίγο ..... αλλά είναι από τις ευχάριστες δοκιμές μου !!!!!

This rum has s bit of a hard taste and is very warming inside. Not a favorite, but will do in a bind.

Not bad, not amazing, nice middle of the road rum. Nice aroma when opened, pleasant tasting but does not last as long as I would have liked. Overall it's W good value mixer which can also be sipped.

This is my favorite ''cheap rum''. Good on it's own or mixed with water and a splash of cola.

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!

The nose is oaky and fruity with notes of gentle stone fruits and spice. The palate is full of orchard fruit notes, a little tropical fruit and winter spice, notes of smoke and tropical tiki cocktails. The finish is sweet and spiced.

A very good rum with hints of molasses and some tannins from the oak. Ok on its own but better in tiki drinks.
