This rum may not be the most beautiful of rums, but it is - hands down - one of the best rums that i have tried.

The taste is sharp but at the same time delicate and savory.

If you prefer a rum that is not to heavy on fruit taste, you should try this.

Taste perfection, the absolute poster child for a young rum. It show's in style that a perfect rum does not need to be old. It just needs to be made with skill.
No caramel added, aged for 3 years, a good high flavour carrying proof and pot stilled. Slightly too expensive at 45€ which means I won't buy it often but it still maintains a 10/10 because it is just that well made.

A thoroughly enjoyable straight sipper.

This is my favorite rum of all time. As of this moment... Ohio has stopped selling this rum. Shame.

I love this rum, and am glad/lucky I found it in the random liquor store I stopped in on a cross country driving trip. I have yet to have seen it since.

A+ rum, price is right proof is right. A bit obscure in the realm of classic rums. Perfect right down the middle young rum with a solid foot on the dry side. Care has been taken into crafting this, If your seeking good quality rum you will not be disappointed one bit.

The 49%abv makes this pretty bitey, but the flavor is still very good. It's a little dryer than most, but still has some sugar, honey, and vanilla to it. The spice is very interesting.

49% ABV. I believe the bottle said the blend of Trini rums were aged 3–5 years before bottling. Interesting nose. Some high notes. Mouth is a bit deeper. Starts light and cane-y, but dry. You can detect the oily, smoky Caroni. Surprisingly long finish.

Death & Company got something really good when this was developed for them. I love the proof, and I imagine this mixes like a charm. May need to make this my new "interesting" gold rum.

8-, 8

A bit spicy up front, get some barrel flavors, had it neat but I usually like ice but overall an excellent rum.

One of the drier rums available with some alcohol burn, some hot spice notes like pepper combined with vanilla, caramel, brown sugar and banana. This is a fine rum to drink neat but also does well in mixed drinks.
