Nothing special. A fair rum with harsh aftertaste.

Vôňa vcelku ok, no chuť na mňa trochu viac alkoholová. Mám rád proste sladšie a jemnejšie chute.

Un ron bueno aunque no es muy delicado, prefiero los rones un poco más complejos pero esta bien.
Mejor con hielo

Not a bad rum. Spicy with a lot of tannins. The taste is watery.
It could be better, it's a little bit too harsh. I would prefer an older one.

Smell: caramel, dry fruits, vanilla, fesh fruits
Taste: bitterness, oak, caramel, spice, watery taste

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruit: 3.5/5
Spice: 3/5
Mildness: 2.5/5

Very smooth and tasty without being too sweet, smokey or spicey. Great go-to rum at relatively low price point.

Nice rum, slow drink. Friend brought it all the way from colombia! Thanks!

Quite smooth, with rounded sweat taste. This is maybe because of relatively low alcohol level.
Not the worst, but not the best...let the search begin...!!!

How on earth do the Columbians produce sweet tasting rums that are still dry? I read somewhere that the answer is in aging in barrels that were used to age aguardiente. I have never seen aged aguardiente for sale in the USA, so I am sure that they keep this good rum for themselves just like in many Caribbean islands. I also read that they add honey to the mixture before distillation, which is more natural sweetness.

For fans of unmodified rums by R.L. Seale, I HIGHLY recommend Columbian rums from Ron Medellin and Dictador. Why did it take me so long, but I thank fellow reviewers who have led me here! This one is really mellow, but the more highly rated 12 Year was not available when I purchased my 8 Year bottle. This one is a tad better than The Real McCoy 5 Year and about $6 cheaper at 3 years more of aging. Call me a turtle, but I am not afraid to stick my neck out and risk having it chopped off.

This dry rum without much wood flavoring is also the perfect one for bringing back to life those sugar bombs and overly sweetened rums that have lost much of their initial great taste after sitting in the bottle for four months. Try it! You will be surprised.
