I admit to being partially biased to sweet Rums, and this is one. But only just. Maybe butterscotch or carmel. Yes, oak but so mellow. And so smooth, aged in French cognac casks. Warm finish that maybe does not last quite long enough. Love the thick bottomed bottle, hate the lable. This Rum tied for me with another of my favorites, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. Not that they are the same but both are my go-to for a quiet sip, ice or not, both are my best affordables so far.

An exceptionally smooth and aromatic XO rum finished in ex-Cognac casks. Similar to Plantation 20th , this is a wonderful sipping rum and will be on my top shelf.

The nose was sweet, the body was thin and wasn't full.. it was to smooth, like that of lil to no after taste, disappearing like a scotch into the back of the throat. For the price of $33 it was right and better then most at the price range.. I can't figure out the flavors even when I continued to clear my pallet.. I will pair it with different items to see what flavors I can pull out.. it's sweet though.

Update: I revisited this after tasting Cartavio XO and getting my Glencairn glasses. It's Eve better, smooth as can be. Definitely deserves a purchase and a try, more than once.

OK, it has caracter and a nice vanilla flavor, but it needs to sit in the glass for a while. I believe they've got their work cut out to get into the mainstream. At $50 a bottle it will be years before I give it another try. I'm not cheap but there's alot more out there that can definitely give this rum a run for the money. Glad I tried it but not going on my list anytime soon.

Selected three rums around a similar price point. The El Pasador, Papas Pilar Dark Rum, and Santa Theresa 1796. This was our favorite.

A mature rum that’s had time to develop character. Hints of something floral, like plumeria, though not perfumy.

Lightly sweet, which we like. A rich mouthfeel, that stuck to the tongue, in a good way.

Ends with a little spice and heat.

Rum is in beautiful white box, bottle is fantastically shaped, rum is very smooth, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors, for great money it offers a lot of flavours and aromas!

Hints of chocolate and caramel on the nose and palette. Smooth

A great drink for shipping. Wonderful full flavor. And so mellow! Really love it.

Perhaps when I try a rum from a more expensive price category, I will change my attitude to this rum, but so far it is the best.

This one is full of butterscotch.
Both on the nose and on the pallet.

Nice light oily texture

Smooth with the slightest heat on the finish.
Lingering taste of vanilla cream and a bit of candy corn.
