Recommendable to most
Very tasty, fresh and not too heavy. My favorite mid aged rum.
And it works also with coke very well. Just Fantastic and better than most heavy/burbon tasting rums.
Vom Alter her mag man nicht viel von diesem Rum erwarten, aber er überraschte mich positiv.
Sehr angenehmer Rum den man auch wunderbar pur genießen kann. Ich trinke ihn allerdings lieber mit Cola. Der Caramell Geschmack ist bestimmt nicht jedermanns Sache, aber ich mag einfach die Leichtigkeit dieses Rums.
Light golden, sweet, caramel rum with some vanilla and banana aroma. Goes down easily. I have a soft spot for barbados rum.
Nice light golden brown color. Sweet caramel aroma. Smooth sweet caramel tones smooth going down. A must for those who have not tried it.
I found this a little heavy on the vanilla.
This is something to try. As far as i have tasted Plantation rums, this is the best value rum. It is bit too sweet but really nice on the rocks. If you have tasted on Plantation you have tasted them all, if we talk about aged rums.
22 g/ltr of added sugar according to the Swedish national list. Despite having half the sugar of El Dorado 12 yr, it seems sweeter to me. Still a nice rum for $15 I paid for it, with a decent robust flavor that is not overwhelmed by the added sugar.
If you want to see what this is like without the added sugar, try Doorly's 5 yr.
A nice sipping rum and also a nice mixer even though a bit too mild for tiki drinks but for a daiquiri it´s good. Mild, sweet, vanilla...and smooth.
