Recommendable to most
This rum is great for shots as it is very light, mild,sweet, with obvious hints of vanilla. This rum gave me a slight hangover so it must have artificial chemicals/additives in it to enhance flavor.
Very mild, with a delicate & noble sweetness, this is one of my most favorite light rums so far. Really very nice and enjoyable! Goes well straight or on the rocks, also has great taste with cola.
This is a very easy rum to sip. The flavor is light and sweet with the burn being a bit stronger than the taste. This may be a nice rum for those just starting to enjoy it neat.
Don't drink this straight - there's much better for that. This is an ideal choice for simple cocktails that let the rum flavor stand out. I suggest cuban daiquiris (aka, the original daiquiri) - one lime, cane syrup, a shot of this. Shake with crushed ice and strain (rather than blend). Crowd favorite every summer night. Thanks Plantation.
Sorry, I wasn't that impressed with this one. While it was only $15, I've had other rums for the same price, that I thought were better. Had a little too much burn for me, not smooth enough.
