Easily consumable in a bind
Do not drink this straight as it is slightly harsh. You get get vanilla and citrus hints
It smells great when you sniff it in your glass, and it is a white rum when held up to the light it is pure white and no colour can be found.
If your making tropical cocktails this is the drink to use, you will not be disappointed. The same applies to citrus cocktails too
This is by far one of the best white rums out there. Not a sipping rum, but great in mixed drinks. Even has a nice taste with cola.
White, silver, plata, platino, blanco, however you want to say it . . . This is better than some and not as good as others. I like the Barbados rums, so I gave it a try - and it's pretty darn good.
Very dry and invisible in most cocktails. Interesting to mix with coconut water as you'd swear there wasn't anything there. If this is what you want from your white rums, this is the one for you.
The mouthfeel is quite good, silky and thick without any sugar addition. While relatively low flavor, it does have a very pleasant caramelized quality to it that actually lingers for quite some time. Not at all a bad rum, and recommendable at around $15 a bottle. Would have it in mojitos and daiquiris, primarily. Maybe with cola or root beer.
Why waste time with Bacardi (other white rums exist) when you can have this smooth and crisp version from the Barbados stable?
Works well as a mixer. Not meant for sipping, and has a bit of a strange aftertaste neat. Does not leave the same taste when mixed, unlike the typical white rum brand one so often finds in a bar
My number one choice for mixing, (if I was rating it for sipping the rating would be lower). For a white spirit it is light on alcohol kick and if you are patient and search you pick pick up hints of tropical fruit, dried citrus, very slight coconut and vanilla.
It works fine for a mixer but it won’t change your life.
Possibly a good nightcap, because it kind of put me to sleep (and not in a fun ketamine kind of way....).
