Found this rum during a spring break trip in Oregon of all places. Sad to see it's no longer made. Great smooth taste, nothing harsh at the end. It's a white rum I drink neat.

Oronoco is a wonderful, light cane rum made with a unique aging process in Brasil. Unfortunately it was introduced into the U.S. with virtually no marketing and, though it had gathered small circles of intense affection, after a few years it was just pulled from the states by its distributor. There is truly nothing like it for a light taste that to me has a unique vanilla-and-coconut overtone (and I agree with statements about a slight "grassy" quality as well). Great on the rocks but also in some mixed drinks where its qualities are not overwhelmed. I still can't find anything to compare, though Angostura 1919 is my current replacement, as it is wonderful in its own but only slightly similar way. Please bring Oronoco back to the USA!

I was truly surprised by this rum. I had it in Palm Springs at some resort (would be swanky resort, but caters to families...) and this rum was the only "rum not found in grocery stores in this bar" as described by the bartender...

Smells of cool vanilla and tastes of sweet, freshly cut grass (I know, sounds weird...)

Smooth as velvet but oh so limited. Bring back production!

This is a light rum that is excellent on the rocks with a smooth cigar. Good job Oronoco. Only problem is it is difficult to find.

I thoroughly enjoyed this rum as the grassy, floral notes worked well together. A more pricy cachaca but often times, you get what you pay for.
Pick up a bottle if you can as it is rumored to be out of production!
I love the bottle style and design!

Jemný, dobrý jen tak, ani bych ho nemíchal s ničím. Překvapení na bílý rum.

I don;t know what constitutes a flavored Rhum. This cane rhum, made in Brazil, has a distinct vanilla, matched by a clean, cane sweetness. It is very smooth, making me wonder what else is in there? So, for the purists, well, you may be taken aback by the vanilla top and bottom. I really enjoyed it. One of the most important qualities of any spirit is its drinkability. Second, is its adherence to tradition to its genre. Oronoco is as smooth as it gets, and has a cool, sweet pure cane gladness, with, as I've said, this real vanilla presence. Anyone who has purchased Mexican or south American vanilla, knows of its intense, clean and non-alcoholic properties, far different than vanilla bought for baking on the US. It seems this brand is no more. I can't find it anywhere.

A nice find while traveling. I am not a fan of Cachaça, so when I saw that this was from Brazil, I was a bit skeptical. It had a fruity nose, and was sweet on the tongue with a little heat in the back. Would be great in a fruity cocktail. If I find a bottle at a store, I'll definitely pick some up.
