kidding, but i like this. it has the bite of a higher proof rum with the softer finish of the lower proof overly sweetened rums. has a nice long lingering finish like a good bourbon. i like the solera style and this is no exception. i will buy a bottle next time Im at my local.

Once again, no suprises—solera-aged, little to no dosage, latin-style rum with a bit of 18-yo juice inside. More oak coming through compared to the 12. A solid choice, for the right price.

8-, 7+

I bought this one for myself at the Cancun airport, only because they didn’t have any Havana club! It’s just OK not fabulous, not horrible. I can definitely submit though, even though it wouldn’t be my first choice.

Un rhum assez facile à boire un petit côté caramel légèrement épicé mais qui manque un peu de sucre à mon goût.

Sweet smell with a dry leathery taste. All and all; not bad, but lacking.
I knew the moment I first swirled it around and those thin legs presented themselve it might be a bit thin and unexciting.
Still not a bad rum to have in the collection.

The taste just vanish after you swallowed. Otherwise not bad, but doesn't stand out.

If your a fan of zacapa you would enjoy this has a lot of flavours and good taste

Sweet nose of caramel and molasis. Very smooth easy to drink. I like this one straight up.

This was my second sipping rum purchase after Ron Centenario 20-Year.
This one was a disappointment by comparison to be honest.

The smell is nice, honey/traces of spice.
The coloring is light brown.
The liquid tastes thin and it lacks luster and doesn't coat the mouth.
Upon tasting, the distinctive caramel/honey flavour of rum is present, but is not distinct enough (for me) and it is quite harsh, with a strong alcohol after-taste.

Will try it over ice next, to see if that helps the harshness.

Won't be buying it again.

Good tasty rum, really different than the 12Y Botran.
