For the price you can buy it blind. The reserva 2000 will have less strength but more flavor. The XO is one of my favorite by combining both strentgh and all flavors

For something aged for only 5 years it has more flavour than you'd expect. Not my greatest but definitely a good runner.

Rather pleasant and mellow rum. Good as a sipper or mixer.

Had a great week and topped it off by picking up this little bottle of deliciousness, banana and pineapple undertone to it. Quite whiskey like I thought, nice warm aftertaste. One down now I can see a few more before the evenings out!

Maybe a little rugged for sipping, this is an exceptional mixer...probably my favorite mixer overall considering the value which pushes this towards an 8.

Slightly sweet vanilla flavor with a light alcohol burn. Great value for the price.

My 3rd review and this is the best one I’ve had so far! Rated it 8 as I’m sure there are better ones out there and I reserved the 9 and 10 for those. Very smooth! Just hints of sweetness...just enough to make you want another shot to catch it again! Many thanks for all the reviews here that led me to this tasty bottle!

This rum has a good strong taste that lingers, but would benefit from a bit more subtlety.

Full disclosure, I'm new to rum.. But from what I've experienced thus far, a fantastic rum for the price. It's exceptionally smooth and surprisingly complex. Sweet up front, with a warm finish. Not overly sweet (which I dislike).
I give it an 8.

Pri ochutnávanie tohto rumu som asi urobil chybu,že som ho porovnával s 20th a ten je ozaj skvelý. Ani tu sa nejedná o zlý rum a dostanete ho za podstatne nižšiu cenu,no necakaje takú explóziu chutí ako pri 20th. Slušný priemer. Hodnotím medzi 5 a 6.

This is my go-to rum for a quick snifter, neat with no ice. Nothing outrageously special, perhaps, but pleasant to drink and fairly cheap. It’s a good sipping rum. Damning with faint praise, perhaps, but it’s a good, every day kind of a rum.
