Color is good. Taste is fair. It could have used more time in the barrels.

Another rum that proves you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for a great rum. I found this locally for $24 and after reading some reviews decided to give it a shot. Glad I did. This rum is produced by Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala, the same distillery that brings you Ron Zacapa. But make no mistake, this is not the just a cheap version of the sugary Zacapa. Wonderfully smooth, and just enough sweetness to compliment the play of flavors without over powering them with a syrupy, sugariness. According to other reviewers, it's coming in at a 0-5g sugar test. It mellows into a comfortable finish, with virtually no alcohol burn. I'm giving this an 8 based on quality and price. Will definitely buy again.

Vanilla, toffee and slight spicy aromas from the glass. It doesn't smell as heavy as I would've thought. It is very smooth with no harshness. Prolonged sitting in the glass reveals a warm peach, oak and leathery aroma. The taste is warming sweet oak and toffee with a dark sherry like edge. The finish is pure dairy fudge, oak and a fruity sweetness. Better than its stablemate Zacapa

There are so many mediocre rums like this were nothing great comes to better. Yes you drink it you will catch a buzz. That’s not why I drink, I like to enjoy really well crafted great tasting spirits. This is not one of those.

Není to úplně nejlepší rum, ale za tu cenu hodně muziky. Přišel mi poněkud ostřejší. Vůně exotické ovoce a vanilka.

A sweet rum that goes down like a fine whiskey. Anybody claiming this isn't sweet and smooth doesn't know what she is talking about.

I was expectin domething like zacapa but not really. Its ok to sip but is a litle pricey for the taste. I prefer zacapa 23 instead

N- Molasses, soft clove, dried fruit, solera vatted on the light side with not much going on. Feel the rising tide but shallow in reality. (83/18)

P- Present of sweet and spicy oak, sour fruits, young mango soaked with molasses with dashes of pounded assam-boi, seems some red fruits lurking. Nothing unpleasant, elementary but ok. (85/19)

F- Medium, lasting spicy coat, fragile on taste and stays generic. (82/17)

Body/Balance- 84/18
