I’m always on the lookout for a new sipping rum and read somewhere that this could stand on its own. No.

Pleasant and surperisingly light rum to be so dark.
Not over sweet and the No 1 rum for your Dark'n stormy.
Rich in flavour with molasses sweet finnish

Affordable dark rum from Bermudas. While mostly known as a mixing rum for Dark N’ Stormy, I purchased a bottle to test it as a sipping rum. Although sweeter than my preferered rums, the sugar level (11 GPL) is minimal unlike other sugar bombs I have tasted. This rum is actually a nice change and fine on its own. Molasses and caramel are evident but not overwhelming. Nicely surprised by this rum.

This is a far departure from the other rums you have tried. Not a fan, it is very heavy and bourbon like with a stout type of fullness it leaves you with. Will not be buying this again but if it is around at a party, I suggest you see for yourself.

Nothing I prefer as avec or for zipping, but perfect for my favourite rumdrink “Dark ‘N’ Stormy”. So I rate it a 5, which for me is the highest rate I give a mixer rum.
