Tasty, but not quite great
The rum is a very light pour.
The nose is unimpressive.
The mouth feel is thin.
There is a very distinct alcohol burn and limited flavours.
The rum is smooth.
The after taste is subtle and may actually be better than the taste in the mouth.
Definitely drinkable, however probably better suited as a mixer.
As a mixer it would be contributing very little in flavour profile so it would be used as a base rum or alcohol source. If all you are really using it for is as an alcohol source there are numerous less expensive choices out there.
Upper mixer / Lower sipper. I had it straight with no ice. Oak and fruits are the predominant flavors. Quite smooth for an 8-yo rum but not very complex.
Nice golden color. Some initial harshness in the nose, that dissipates with some breathing. Fruity wood sents.
Véry smooth in the mouth, nice round bitterness of oak with fruit flavours and a hint of vanilla. Has a little kick when swallowing and a distant but nice aftertaste.
As the app suggests, this sums it up very well. Drunk it OK, but would not buy it again. I would rather go for something else. Was maybe a bit too sweet for my likings with no aromatic aftertaste. I think I'm becoming very picky 🙄
Pretty unremarkable, rummy aroma, if maybe a bit harsh.
The drink itself is pleasant. Pretty light on flavor, with a smooth mouthfeel. Gently sweet, woody... almost floral rather than fruity. Eminently drinkable and unobtrusive, but really not much to write about. It is nice. I'd say the flavor is probably too light to make for a keen mixer, but haven't given it a shot myself.
As I like sweet rum this was not bad at all, the sweetness is given by the coconut and vanilla after taste also has a hint of coaco, fairly smooth. Overall 7/10
