Tasty, but not quite great

Didn't really like it. Initial taste reminded me of taking children's orange triamenic cough syrup as a kid. That seems rather specifically bad doesn't it? I want to believe the one reviewer who said it needs to breath to be good, but I'm sure all rum is better after breathing and I don't want to wait 2 hours before sipping 1 glass of rum. Love the bottle and presentation but it's just not good.

Prijemne piticko. Nádherná pomarančová vôňa a taktiež aj chuť.

Pro mě to je mimozemšťan mezi rumy, citrusy na mě z lahve křičí jak prase, je to snad cejtit na metry. Tento rum si dokážu představit jak popíjím někde u moře i s ledem a je mi horko a chci něco osvěžujícího s alkoholem....pak asi jo, jinak moc ne. Tento rum pít pouze samostatně, tedy neochutnávat jiné rumy během jednoho večera, pak jakože ok....ale tento rum si už pořizovat nebudu.
Nutno dodat že je to určitě originální a zajímavej rum, své fans jistě bude mít.

I started my rum adventure here. It was great for a $25 bottle, however, I've since experienced much better rums. I got hints of citrus in this one and not a lot else. Very good for this price, but don't have too high of expectations. Probably wouldn't purchase again.

This rum is sold at almost a top shelf price. You are clearly paying for the fancy bottle because the rum inside is not great. In my opinion it had a rubbing alcohol smell and taste.

Fruity with nice notes of apricot and a little vanilla. Great in Mai Tai’s.

...label is not the only thing beeing orange on this rum. When I had the pyrat XO for the first time it felt like having an orange in my mouth. Actually not what I do expect of a non spiced or flavored rum😉

Very nice rum, well priced and kept in freezer for sipping.

Too sweet, too much citrus, a weird synthetic chemical taste.
I read the review from Chris who said that it needs time, but if I pour a glass, I want to drink it. I don't want to leave it sitting for 2 hours whilst it settles down. Maybe when I go on holiday, I'll get a shot of it and let it sit for a bit, but I can't imagine I would ever go out and buy a bottle.

In summary, if you want a nice sweet rum with more than a little character, don't get this, get a Diplomatice Reserva Exclusiva.

I waited a long time to try this. But. This didn't really taste like rum, to me. An artificial orangey flavor lay beneath an astringent-style alcohol-taste that lacked any real character that appealed to my palate, but to each his/her own. Drink what you like, of course, but I'm passing on this, if I ever see it again. Sorry.
