Rich caramel and baking spice... is it sweetened with added sugar??? Regardless, it stands out in most any mix calling for a dark. Recommended.

This rum has lots of flavor and depth, especially at sub $20. Nothing to hate here, nice dark color, lots of depth and flavor. Not terribly lingering but really enjoyed it.

Good, balanced flavor. It's not sharp. Nice smell. Good value for money.

Lovely and well balanced rum with a touch of sweetness. Excellent buy for the price, I got a bottle for €23. Will certainly buy again.

Good as a mixer, but others do more with more character at the same price point.

Un rom interesant . Un rom extrem de condimentat atat in miros cat mai ales in gust . gust puternic de caramel si vanilie si ceva piscareli ca de piper. Gustul de vanilie pare putin cam fals, nenatural. se simte binisor taria mai ales in gust dar nu arde pe gat, mai mult pe papile si n as spune ca i neplacut. Are un post gust lung si .. condimentat evident ))) iar partea interesanta e ca persista si arsura alcoolului care dispare in timp , progresiv ) spre final ramane doar gustul de caramel si acea vanilie cam falsa . pacat de senzatia asta de vanilie falsa , pierde aici.

Este destul de agresiv cu codimentarea , pentru unii poate fi putin neplacut dar acest rom, tocmai pentru ca merge mult spre extreme cu condimentarea dar si alcoolul care se simte destul de puternic pentru un rom, merge bine cu gheata si (desi nu beau rom decat simplu sau cu gheata sau cu extrem de putina apa la temperatura camerei) sunt sigur ca merge super bine in amestecuri (cooktail).
Se desface pe gheata , nu se mai simte atat de puternic alcoolul si se diluaza si din condimentarea puternica , parca l prefer cu gheata mai mult )

My mainline Jamaican darks have been Appleton Estates or Myers, which have always been serviceable without too much burn. This one has a very particular character to it, sort of what you think rum was like 200 years ago. I'm not sure if it's the old-school recipe or the cognac barrel aging, but there's a definite "Funk" that's not for everyone in this. That funkiness makes it great for mixing since it shines through a lot of stuff, but it may not be the best on the rocks.

Needs a little more body and maybe a touch more flavour. It seems to yearn for a little bit of vanilla.....not bad but just about acceptable as a sipping rum for me.

I enjoyed it... not my favorite, but it was different, and quite affordable. Would drink it again.

One of cheapest Plantation's emissary. And suprisingly one of the very good ones. Beautiful bottle with content description. In nose very fruity , notes of caramel, tobacco - contains all of perfect rums should have. Much worse on the tongue , a bit too harsh , not sure if recommendable for sips, but perfectly for mixers. Definatelly I would buy again. (for drinks)
