Flawed with a glimmer of hope
I've given this five stars, compared to four stars for the Captain Morgan's and Lamb's equivalents, due to the lower price. In terms of quality and flavour, it is on a par with them, so at only £9.99 per bottle it's a good budget option for mixing.
I picked up a bottle of this, figuring that I'd try it out at just under £14 (it's more expensive north of the border due to minimum pricing laws in Scotland).
Its a dark mahogany colour with some faint notes of sweetness and caramel on the scent. These continues through to the taste as when sipped there are tastes of these, but again they are faint. It is surprisingly mellow when sipped neat: no burn at all. However when it is mixed the rum taste is wiped out completely.
Overall its drinkable, but it certainly isn't memorable and is sadly simply too bland for me. Ideal for introducing somebody to dark rum, or if your not a fan of the taste of rum and just want a drink to have with a mixer. Comparable to the likes of Captain Morgan, Skipper, OVD etc, but for good mixing rums I'd look to Trawler, Watsons Demerara, Gosling or Woods (if you like your rum a bit stronger).
