Rum tasting in Baton Rouge continued with Cane Mill 5y Rum. Pretty nice old school bottle and label design. Dark mahogany color. Pure alcohol mixed with plenty of vanilla and mild pepper to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Nasty ending. Mixer for sure.

I bought this great aged rum for mixing when I had already gone thru all the 8 year old that my local TW&m had in stock. I frankly couldn't tell the difference from the older bottling.

Strong alcohol taste and flavor but this is not a great “aged” rum. Decent price but there are much better rums in the same price range. Ok on the rocks but there are numerous rums that are better.

This review is remarkably similar to the one I wrote for the Cane Mill 8 Year rum.

This rum is a bit difficult on which to obtain information. The label itself, a nice eyecatching design reminiscent of the late 19th century, does not give much information other than it comes from Barbados and is a blend of rums aged in charred white oak barrels for 5 years. Online all I could find out is that it is a rum sold exclusively by the Total Wines & More chain (which is where I discovered it in Jacksonville, Florida) for under $15 a bottle.

It has a pleasant odor in my snifter albeit a bit more stringent than its 8-year sibling. A nice bright amber color yet a bit thin on legs. It is rather smooth with more of a tannin bite than its 8-year sibling. It has a warm, lingering finish. It seems a bit watery at the outset but a mild vanilla and brown sugar flavors become evident along with a slight pepperiness. The brown sugar flavor becomes more evident in the finish. Not very complex but rather tasty. This would make for a very good mixing rum. Definitely a rather good rum for the price.
