Recommendable to most
Nice rum, distinct vanilla and caramel taste. Slightly bitter if I remember well. There is always something I can't recognize that can't me love this rum.
First time I had this one wasn’t the best I’ve ever had but after few months I tried it once more and it got me down. Taste is so full and good. What I love the most is the colour.
You really can't go wrong with this rum. Complex, balance and nice flavour profile. A respectable price point makes this rum a worthy everyday drink.
Perfect score for this XO. All around smooth, well balanced spices, oaky finish to it. Not too sweet. High class rum at an affordable price ! Cheers
Smooth, intense, not very sweet, for me first a little bit similar taste to Appleton Estate 12, but the finish is different and long. Perfect for bourbon lovers, not my favourite, but high quality.
Excellent Rum at a great price. Has a very pleasant aroma, the taste has a very nice natural sweetness to it, very smooth and easy to drink. I absolutely love this stuff. Get it while you still can because this blend is not being produced anymore. Cheers!
This rum does have a nice level of complexity to it and it is rather smooth as well. If you enjoy nice dry clean rums then this is a go to.

"The nose is very fruity. Raisin, prunes and currants with a little banana and some tropical fruits a little pineapple perhaps."
