Different in every way than the Grand Reserve. Bigger, bolder, darker, dryer, complex(er), better(er).

Similar to Zacapa Xo, but at 1/3 of the price. The best bargain rum!

Very enjoyable for the low cost of under $40. Better than a lot of other rums that are more expensive. It's hard to peg a better value than this one right here!

The box and bottle have a certain presence to them that add to the experience unlike the plantation rums I have had, save maybe the XO. I taste a nice blend of vanilla and oak. It tastes juuust sweet enough, but not artificially so. The flavour comes right away and is very direct yet not harsh. The flavour melts more quickly than you would want it to just to give rise to a gradual build of the burn. Right before the finish would become harsh, it starts to fade, leaving the faint memory of the flavour behind. Quite pleasant despite my general distaste for oak flavour.

This is up there with kirk and sweeney 18 and 23 as far as bang for the buck. Maybe not as smooth but very balanced. The 23 borders on being over aged and oaked. El pasador is perfectly sweet. I'm not a fan of dry rum like seale's. To me a rum should have some sweetness. Some go a little over board with this such as diplomatico and el dorado. This hits the "sweet" spot.

Not only is this RUM incredibly delicious! It is ultra smooth. Beautiful in color and presentation (bottle). But why it deserves a 10 is the price point!!! I dare you to find ANY RUM as smooth, tasty, and refined under $40??? Sure there are worthy contenders. But none that are as overall palatable as this fine gem from Guatemala! I have about 10 absolute favorites and this is in my Top 5 easily! It is not as complex as say Don Pancho 18yr Reserva Especial or my absolute favorite: Plantation XO 20, but again, for the money, there is none better!

Smooth, very sweet, sugar added for sure. Slight marmalade taste also a hint of cola flavor. Nose seems like there is some young rum in the blend. Interesting and a solid choice for many but no longer a favorite of mine like it used to be.

Paid $36.99 at Total Wine in DE. Has a sweet nose and deep amber color. You can taste the finishing of this rum in cognac casks. Very smooth and sweet, very little burn. A nice dessert rum.

Superbe rhum dans sa finition en fut de cognac, long en bouche très suave avec un final riche et puissant. Un rapport qualité prix imbattable...
