I use it quite a bit for tiki drinks that need a dark rum.

This, along with Plantation Barbados Grande Reserve, is my favorite budget sipping rum. Looks great in the glass with a fairly dark color. Didn't stick out in presentation, taste, or smoothness, but it doesn't need to either. It's a solid sipping rum for a great price.

Like most people, I have this stocked because my wife loves it. Actually a really nice mixer. A bit frothy like Captain Morgan black.

Probably makes a decent mixer and not super pleasant sipped. It’s a good introduction rum, so and it does have a decent flavor.

An adequate dark rum for cocktails. Prefer cruzan blackstrap for the molasses flavor.

I know that this is the official rum for a Dark and Stormy. Usually pass over this rum in favor of others, but pickings were slim at the store so I gave it a try.
It is great in a Dark and Stormy, but also a decent sipper neat. Used it for rum balls too yum.

This is not the best rum in the barrel but it's not the worst. Not a sipper but good for mixing. I doubt I ever buy a bottle again, but the idea of to try different rums and experience the world.
