Another excellent product from Seale and Foursquare. Hard to beat the $15 price tag. It's easy to find a good rum at 3-4 times that price, but it's a thrill to know one of my favorites is also so affordable.Thanks Total Wine and More . . .

This is a required in the cabinet rum, as it can be drank on ice, or in mixed drinks, as necessary. The taste is pretty mellow, not harsh, and mixed well . The color (Which can be faked) is a very nice dark brown, and is visually appealing- this can be important in a clear drink, or on the rocks. Hey, presentation is 50% of a sell.

For the bang for buck of 15$ I'll take it.. but I like the taste of Appleton for a few bucks more or plantation original dark. It has the basic taste points without being harsh. Enjoy

This is a budget rum for only $17 US, but if someone gave you a sample to try without telling you what it was, you would probably guess that it would cost above $30 US. It can almost compete with the "big boy" sippers, but not quite. As the back label describes this rum, it is "masculine yet smooth". That really sums it up. Nothing offensive and it can serve as an entry level sipper or in a variety of mixed drinks.

I have also heard that this one is what R.L. Seale 10 Year starts out with, but I don't see that connection at all here. There is no bourbon taste to this one, just strictly pure rum with no additives.

Not too expensive, but you wouldn't know it by the taste. Sweet n numbing like Kava.

I love the R.L Seale line of rums, and Old Brigand is no exception. Yes it is an inexpensive rum, affording you to unfairly insinuate that this has to taste like paint thinner or should be used to remove nail polish. Neither is further from the truth as Seale, I don’t think, would do this to Rum clientele.
The smell is dominated by orange and cinnamon candies which albeit, has a pleasing smell. In the glass you get sweetness from the cinnamon and orange but also the heat provided by the said cinnamon, pepper and other warm spices, oak as well as the proverbial alcohol heat/ astringent at the back end This is in a good way however, as I don’t want you to feel like you are sucking on a Carolina Ghost pepper kind of extreme heat. It counterbalances the sweet and heat rather nicely.
This rum is the most popular rum in Barbados, not because of complexity or age statement but because it is only $15-$20 a bottle. Don’t let the small price tag fool you, this is an enjoyable rum to mix or even to enjoy neat.
Nothing fancy regarding the bottle design or label housing the dark amber rum inside however, sometimes you get lucky and find a genie in the bottle! This is one of those times, for me atleast...let’s Parlay...

Great spice rum for mixing or sipping. This is a blend of 10YO rums that runs dark and should replace kraken black anywhere it is found. Superb rum, especially for a blend - even more so considering price point.

Great with a splash of Diet Coke. And at $17, an above average value.

Dammit! This guy can do no wrong. I thought the RLS 10 year was a bargain. This is like shoplifting.

Sweet molasses with a bite on the backend. Very drinkable.
