Sweet rum with a strong vanilla aroma and a smooth finish

Nose is pretty unassuming: vanilla and oak, not much going on there.

The taste is immediate black pepper and something grassy, leafy—- followed by a sort of whisky aftertaste. This is from initial sips neat.
I have no doubt it will work well in some cocktails, but it doesn’t stand up to some other Pantation bottlings, like Xaymaca, Isle of Fiji, OFTD and others.

Fantastic value. Tastes like a young XO as well it should.

Nose is light. Caramel. Vanilla. Butter honey.

Oily draw. A bit of heat with an oakey dry finish. Sugar cane. Vanilla extract. Dried green Raisens

Fire and thunder! This be an exceptional rum for the price! She smells sweet of vanilla and a hint of somethin' toasty, which I be at a loss to speak on. As for taste, the vanilla disappears like a ghost ship, but in its place there be orange and milk chocolate... but toasty! She be plenty spicy with a hint of cinnamon, too. There be a bit cognac on board, but not 'til the finish, and barely then. This rum be smooth with little burn and worth every penny. Aye, this be a right fine rum, or I be a lubbery Dutchman, which I ain't!

Not being that experienced with rums, I might have to re-rate this in the future.
Picking up vanilla and some similarities in the age to others.

A very mild one with nice flavour. For poeple, who dont like too strong rum taste and burns.

On the nose ripe bananas and vanilla.
on the taste is sweet but not overly sweet. This rum has added sugar which I normally don't like but I can say is well balanced in here. Can be considered a borderline sipper that can stand against other expensive options.

I find nothing at all wrong with this rum. It has minimal sugar. No Solera which people complain about. It doesn’t just taste like oak wood tea. It’s 40% which is fine. I’m not using it to strip paint. It’s finished off in France. I love cognac. It has a beautiful color, nose and palate. I love it. Even in the morning neat. Like now. I’ve had it in my Stok cold brew coffee and milk which is also fine. After trying American whiskeys, scotches, Irish whiskeys and other rums, this is at the moment top of my list.
