Nice sipper, dry and big influence of wood. This is how a latin rum tastes before tons of sugar is added.

Several bottles already tested ! Discovered in Dominicana from the AFD-Barcelo distillery, this rum is easy access for the aficionados. Smart color & smells like a premium rum. The taste is short & the alcool attack very smooth. I recommend it for the guest who wants to discover rums form Caraibian islands.

Para mí este es un buen ron, el cual tiene la capacidad de ser disfrutado tanto mezclado con cocacola o solo con hielo.

Ever since they rebranded, I love the stuff. And the price point is perfect.

Sweet, smooth and a little dry. Sugarcane, spice, oak and the usual vainilla, caramel from the bourbon casks. Fruit, I tasted like, kiwi...first time on that, it was nice. Finish, sweet nutty caramel oak. With water, dried pinnaple..sort of, and all of the above. I have a friend who loves it with coke......I like it neat.
