The first sipping rum I ever purchased. Nice and smooth. Not too sweet. One I'll happily go back to.

Nice rum tot drink, tot my taste a bit beter on the rocks. A bit top dry tot my personal taste, I like more sweet rums. But for a nice change it suits me.

Gewöhnungsbedürftig im Geschmack. Zum mixen mit Coke gut. Preis/Leistung ok

En meget let og ekstremt sprittet rom, der både i duft og smag er en tynd omgang. Der er lidt røgtoner i smagen, men den udvikler sig minimalt. Det er en rom der bider i kinderne uden at efterlade ret meget til ganen. Dette er til dato en af de ringeste rom jeg har prøvet.

Den kunne muligvis med held anvendes til drinks 👎

De lekkerste voor in de cola tot nu toe... Stuk duurder dan een Oakheart of morgan

Nice aroma with butterscotch and vanilla. A light golden colour with thin but suprisingly clingy, oily legs. The palate is not paticulary sweet or complex but very smooth. You get a subtle tone of vanilla, tobaco and wood. The afterburn is short and smooth.

I sampled this rum after an exceptional meal, at an exceptional restaurant, on an exceptional Caribbean island. Cuba, it said. Cuba, it promised. And Cuba it delivered. But only partly.

This rum is in fact not made in Cuba, rather the DR. It's also a solera rum, and that possibly accounts for why the Cuban lightness and smokiness are not as apparent here as in the truly-Cuba products from Havana Club and Varadero. Against those, it probably had more flavor complexity (though not aroma complexity), surely due to its age. But the practical guy in me can't light up the greater expense with the diminished Cuban-ness. Perhaps I should have judged it directly against some of its DR competitors? Not with that word on the bottle...

Plutôt insipide au départ, en le laissant s'ouvrir un peu on découvre des notes de cacao, vanille, cannelle... en bouche ça reste très léger avec toujours la vanille et un boisé plutôt agréable.
Il s'agit d'un rhum de "tradition espagnole", donc assez léger, agréable mais qui manque un peu de corps à mon gout.

Rapporté à son prix, ce rhum est une bonne affaire.
