Discovered TV Dark Rum on a trip to Maui, made myself a Mai Tai and noticed it added a pleasant spice to the drink. I now special order it from my local Virginia ABC store by the case and share it with family and friends.

Enjoyed a bottle of Trader Vic's Dark Rum while vacationing in Las Vegas. Basic and cheap looking bottle and label design. Light golden color. Pure alcohol and plenty of vanilla to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Mix this up with your favorite soda since this is not a neat sipper rum.

Great tasting. Very smooth. Better than most non bundaberg rum brands.

Spirits should have taste, not just the jolt of alcohol. However, RV Dark does just that. You sip this rum and enjoy the sweetish taste, and then get the alcoholic taste. It is not only delicious, but you can enjoy many, many sips (! LIKE I DO !) and not get zonky. Compared to more expensive rums which some come with much higher alcohol levels, this 80-proof product has flavor, gentleness to its user and a sense that you can enjoy it for a long time without hangover or any other "by-product". I enjoy this, and I will continue to purchase it enjoyably as it gives me a rum experience which I not only enjoy but can afford as well !

This stuff is pretty cheap at the local Vic's, and it should be. It's boozy and one-dimensional. Not for sipping unless your name is Captain Hook, in which case you're not reading this anyway.

No one locally carries Trader Vic's. I found this and the Trader Vic's Silver on a weekend getaway with my wife on St. George Island, Florida. Upon opening the bottle I inhaled the aroma and something about it just wasn't right. Couldn't put my finger on it. Not bad, just something....odd. Tasting it was a letdown. Although it has a sweetness to it and a vanilla undertone it also has a bitterness that stays on the tongue far too long. I don't think this is a rum one would sip on its own. Better used in fruit based mixed drinks, especially citrus based. A bit on the harsh side. I believe with work they could produce a far better dark rum.

It's ok for well drinks and has a nice vanilla note. Umm that is pretty much all it has.

Nice dark rum, plenty of molasses flavor.
