It's not overwhelmingly sweet. I see what others are talking about with the ethanol taste but it is not overwhelming, either. It has a unique aftertaste - vanilla? - but it's long after the booze leaves your tongue. Would buy if it was on sale, probably wouldn't pay full price for a bottle.

Dans sa palette, un rhum à goûter pour s'initier aux rhums dominicains, mais ne pas en attendre trop, la république dominicaine à beaucoup de productions bien meilleures.

Easy not very impressive rum. Light nose. Taste like sugar, wood, but bot like something like a 15yo.

Not 15 years old. 15 only designates the oldest rum in the blend. My impression is that the average age is likely half of that.

Complex, but too light and a tad sharp to appreciate easily on its own.

A full bodied rum with a light pleasant sweetness. Woody notes dominate but has a creamy finish.

Kunne ikke stå for etiketten, og det er altså IKKE den måde man skal købe rom på. Havde dog undersøgt hvad andre mener om den, så den kan nu ikke være helt tosset, og da den så endda var på tilbud, røg den ned i kurven.

Den bliver meget snart åbnet, og så får i min ærlige mening om den.

bought this in Spaink for a nice price, pretty smooth with a bit alcohol flavours on the end. Taste is sweet with vanilla and french oak, i think this is column distilled but it could do with more aftertaste. Quality around Bacardi reserva

Une certaine finesse et une très belle complexité pour ce rhum dominicain.

I didn't put much stock in this brand until I actually tried it. I found a rich drink with a subtle sweet flavour and a strong aftertaste. Great choice for an entry-level sipping rum, at least for me.

I wasn't impressed at first, but it slowly grew on me. Enough to not give it a bad rating. I tried it, put it back on the shelf but then found it again like a year later and i just enjoyed it more. I don't know why?

Pour moi LA meilleure marque de Rum - que ce soit le 15 ou le 23 une merveille de dégustation - avec une préférence pour le 23 - avec ses notes plus subtiles.

I try it straight & with cola but this is not my taste.
Sweet at beginning but later flat & alcoholic aftertaste.
I don't buy it again.

a good mixing rum and not too unpleasant for sipping on the rocks. Not badly priced either

δεν με ενθουσίασε καθόλου.δεν είναι ρούμι που θα το έπινα σκέτο.πολύ ακριβό για αυτό που προσφέρει

After reading some of the comments on this rum i wasn't expecting too much , but i was pleasantly surprised.A very smooth rum with not too much alcohol burn. Quite sweet but not overpowering , i prefer this as a mixer but a good quality one. If i put this up against the similar Millonario 15 , it comes a good second. Would like to try the 23 to see if there's any improvement as this is a bit thin.

rum che ha un esplosivita'di aromi fruttati al naso ed palato al primo ingresso in bocca,
poi alcool e sparisce inesorabilmente come un sorso di acqua

Trop fort goût et odeur d'alcool, j'ai eu du mal à l'apprécier surtout après les critique élogieuse que m'en avait fait mes amis.

have had this rum given to me on a couple of occasions. Good presentation but not a memorable rum.

syntes ikke der er meget overraskelse at finde i denne flaske.
stadig en fin rom bare ikke særlig spændende.

I liked this one enough to have some twice last night but it wont be my first go to. taste is nice with hints of vanilla and toffee. finish is nice and warming.

Is not a masterpiece, but good rum anyway. For my tastes, is not for mixed drinks.

Can't really put my finger on it, but it's not to my liking.
