Easily consumable in a bind
its punchy and sweet. Delicious neat.
Great on ice but whats really nice is enjoying the way that this rum plays with citrus.
I feel like the chocolatey finish does something great to a daiquiri which is really different without being over exuberant as some characterful white rums can.
I have it sitting next to the reserva and guess what? The planas gets the guernsey most times.
I have held off for months in trying this replacement for their Blanco. However, after reading enough of these reviews which mentioned notes of coconut, the 47% ABV, and it really being a gold rum aged for six years and then filtered to remove the color, I gave it a try at $29 US. I don't detect notes of coconut, but this one can indeed be sipped neat. Not many white rums can make this claim. It would also be a great mixer, allowing for rum flavors to come through without over powering the drink. I also have it rated as a good buy.
I've had this several times over the past few months and couldn't quite decide where this one fit in. I'm happy it's a great mixer and most enjoyable in this format but not a sipper. I think mixed properly its a delight as its not overly strong but doesn't lose its sweetness in the process.
Tasted it while at a short trip with Viking Line from Sweden to Åland when the Swedish importer was onboard and offered it.
In nose as well on the palate it’s lots of citrus, but you can also taste butter, mint and some toffee. The afterburn is quite short with soft spices.
It has a balanced sweetness, not nearly as sweet as the Reserva Exclusiva. So for me it’s an easy choice to choose this one before the DRE. I think it will fit well in cocktails, cause it will be noticed.
A bit harsh nose, even after 15 minutes in the glass. Reminiscent of oak, but slightly chemical, with no appeasing esters to support it.
A neutral rum, easily drinkable and good mixer for those who prefer anonymous daiquiris and Mojitos, but of little interest to serve any other purposes. Faint and somewhat denatured oak and discrete fruit on the palate, no aftertaste to mention.
Sharp on the nose with a heavy alcohol taste as a sipper, too strong to let any real flavor come out. As a mixer it overpowers some citrus and ginger ale, okay in Coke. Nothing special enough to add to my regular stock.
