When I smelled it for the first time I thought - okay, there is something unpleasant coming through, but I still can smell some fine notes in it, let's sip it. However, after the first sip, I was surprised and disappointed all together. There definitely was some taste telling me this is not a cheap rum, and some fruity things were popping on my tongue as well, which was interesting. Unfortunately, a really bad taste, that I really really hate was coming through as well - not sure how to describe it, but there is kind of alcohol you can find in central/eastern Europe, which was formerly called Rum (a very cheap one), that nowadays can not use the name Rum as it has nothing to do with sugar cane at all. This killed it all, and I would rather trick myself with a shot of Morgan or Jerry, than pay some extra cash in pub for a glass of this. I'm sorry, but not my choice!

The dominance of orange is unmistakable. This is not rum. At best, itʻs a rum liqueur, which is fine if that's what you're looking for.

find me a pirate who drinks this stuff ! The orange notes are very too present. Maybe on the rocks. But not for me.

Back in 2005, I was mostly a Cognac guy with the occasional ultra premium Tequila and Scotch added for some variety. I was offered this particular rum by a bartender at Cuba Libre near Downtown Dallas to try. It was certainly better than any rum I had ever tried! But I was use to the typical Bacardi, Captain Morgans of the world. It is for all purposes, a nice starter rum if that is all available at the bar. It is sippable , but has bite. Not very complex. I actually believe it makes a nice mixer if anything.

Very specific combination of so much citrus (in nose and the mouth) and still pretty harsh taste gives personality to this rum and I like that. It is very easy to describe to others yet its not boring to drink.

It is not the Best rum. However not the worst either. It is drinkable, but not more.

This is my go to Rum. It has a great flavor that doesn't kill drink tasting nor does it taste like it was a syrup. I am new to the Rum game (have done mostly whisky until now) and have only tried a few but I like to have my cheaper go to drink and some good high end drinks. This fits the cheaper go to standard for parties and just a good drink for the house.

I like the uniqueness, the impossible-to-miss taste and smell of orange. It is also a good starter to a nice evening with degustation - it's has a standalone taste.

No regrets, 8/10 :)

Sviezi, pomarancovy, menej vyrazny rumik s nadhernou dochutou.
