A smooth and easy to drink rum. Leaves you warm without a burn.

For being the oldest rum distillery still standing, wow do they know how to make a great rum. Buttery, spicy and semi-dry blending into smooth again, this is hands down my favorite "3-fold" rum... Spice, butter, sweet.

Solid quality product from a historic distillery. No too harsh

My go-to for sipping. For the price I'd venture off and try others in the price range.

Tried it this afternoon. I expected more syrupy from an old rum. It's a little antiseptic under the nose, and a little harsh in the throat, but there's a nice short textured finish. I wouldn't rank it up there, because I didn't experience a strong personality, but it comes in classy glass bottle nips. So if you're flying or in a hotel room, go for this one!

Excellent sipper, nice smoky flavor with the right amount of vanilla/banana sweetness. Also very smooth. One complaint though is pricing. In the US, it is just too expensive for its quality. Caribbean retail price is fairer, but the real place to buy this is at duty free in the Caribbean. Here you can get it at $25 or thereabouts which is a steal.

I love to sip XO. We got free bottles on our tour of the distillery with the VIP group. It's easy to find in the PA stores and helps me to keep from drinking all the 1703.

Handsomely complex sipper thats perfect on the rocks or in an old fashioned. Banana's, vanilla and light warm spices with a nice smooth finish.
