I LOVE this rum. Its been my nightly choice as of late. I'm also a fan of Pyrat XO, so I like my odd sweet rums, I guess. SO good with coke. I can't get enough of this realistically priced rum. This is my fav.

Just something you want sip when you want to taste RUM. I like it. Problem is they have shut the distillery down. No more Old Monk.

Again the usual snobbery on here and raters forgetting what it costs. You can get it locally for £4. It's more than drinkable with coke or ginger. Perhaps a little sweet but I've had worse. Again, £4. 10 bottles of this or one bottle of aged stuff from the Caribbean.

When you think of rum, you probably don't associate it with India. However, India is the number one producer of sugarcane followed by Brazil. Old Monk is a fine example of rum hailing from India. Can be enjoyed neat or mixed. If you can find Old Monk XXX, I would strongly suggest trying it!

I know this is a bizarre review but I am now on bottle number 3 which have been consumed over the previous 18 months or so. I can't quite work out why I don't hate this rum but then also cannot throw it out of my collection. Sometimes it tastes so strong and the smell knocks my sideways then other times it hurts so good! I'm at war with myself over the Old Monk and love it someday and hate it somedays I guess he will be here to stay so is that a bad thing or a great thing? Sometimes too bitter and lacking sweetness then surprises me with a mouthfuls of mild caramel eschews and treacle with coffee kicks. Not a rum for the fainthearted this is a thinking man's rum, but then I am not a thinking man! Oh dear Old Monk please help?
