Smells a bit acetone but is most pleasant flavour than that. Hints of pineapple. Pretty good for the price.

Rich Carmel and coffee, toffee tones, it reminded me of a candy your grandparents kept in an metal tin.

A great holiday drink. Frothy when mixed with cola. Strong Molasses. Good burning finish

Just found it in local liquor store (BC) and love it especially considering the price - $25, and the fact that Eldorado 12 price jumped to $38,
I guess it's not as "refined", though. While most reviews say it's better mixed and/or with ice -I enjoy drinking it neat.

The best Demerara I've found but sadly not available where I live (Saskatchewan). Any time I travel Young's Old Sam comes back with me. The only Demerara the local government liquor stores stock is Lemon Hart so that's my substitute and the occssional Caribbean.

I came back and edited my review.

This is a very basic rum. There is nothing outstanding about it, but there is nothing heinous either.

This is not a rum you would want to sip, rather you want to mix this with some Coke.

I most likely will not buy this one again. It was good to try it and expand my palate, but it’s not worth a repeat.

The look of the bottle doesn't do it justice. Low price is also deceiving. Very good rum.

The label and twist cap make this look ghetto. I was so surprised to taste something this nice.

This is a really sweet rum. It’s like drinking boozy molasses- which sounds delicious to me.

It’s really more like a 7, but I’m giving it a +1 bump for a great price. Here in BC it is about as cheap as they come, but it’s better than many of the more expensive rums.

Sampled Old Sam Demerara Rhum which I enjoyed in spite of being sweet and so young. Not really a sipping rhum but nevertheless better than many other young rums I have had.

A good moderate price demerara with a fiery burn afterwards! Nothing complex here, but a deep syrupy molasses flavor! Worth drinking but easy to get sick of quickly. good for making things like rum balls, or cheating on a dark & stormy!
