Tasty, but not quite great
Okey so tasting this neat wasn't bad but this rum isn't intended for that and it shows, as the taste profile isn't terrible, but there still is little too much alcohol burn and not much to write home about. Well I actually enjoyed the neat glass, but of course this wasn't an incredibly good experience.
Mixing a cocktail is where the rum really starts to shine. You know it is a rum-based cocktail if you use this, there is pepper spices and maybe hints of mint in the taste, but it doesn't distract from the taste of other ingredients, rather this complements the main stuff. Good for highballs, great for unusual (not in that agricole way tho) daiquiris. Would be better than havana club 3 as a mixing rum for me.
The first light rum to leave an impression on me. I’m on my second bottle as it goes well with most summer cocktails. It’s super clean, lightly sweet, and subtly grassy in flavor, with a dry burn at the finish. Absolutely stellar in light Latin drinks like Daiquiris and Mojitos—really highlights the citrus and vegetal notes in each drink respectively. By no means a sipper, but my go-to white/silver/light rum mixer for all the summer staple cocktails.
Found for cheaper than the cheap Bacardi, Cruzan, and naked turtle white rums. I felt like it had a nice light body than the Bacardi. On par with naked turtle I’d say, one of my favorite white rums for cocktails. Of course it’s not a sipper, and I give it a 7 because I can’t compare it to Vizcaya Cristal
This is an incredible mixing rum for anything that benefits from a nice light, subtlety sweet dry rum. Makes perfect Mojitos, stunning Daquiris and sublime Pina Coladas. The nose has hints of vanilla and very subtle floral hints. The taste is very similar with that wonderful dry finish. This is definitely not a sipper but it's not meant to be. There are other white rums that bring other qualities to the party but you don't always need all that. The other thing that makes this rum outstanding is the price.
Anybody who makes rum cocktails at home should definitely give this a try. It will always have a place in my home bar.
This is an ok rum, but my opinion of it is definitely a mixer. It’s a bit harsh on the palate ( mine anyway) neat. It is intended as a mixer, being so dry, and its great for that.
I would agree with a fellow reviewer that as a mixer, it’s flavour comes to the foreground. Clean citrus and pepper.
It does leave a lot of other light rums behind as a mixer, so would definitely purchase again.
It does its job very well, making a very nice Cuba Libre, Daquiri, Mojito, or whatever mixed drink is best with light rum. However, what holds this rum back against other lights is a lack of extra character that higher-quality low-aged rums have. If you need a mixer that's better than Bacardi, you can't go wrong here.
"The finish is relatively short with this one as it dries out quite quickly from the initial sip. The mid palate has notes of chocolate, vanilla and toffee. With some tobacco and oak spices."
