I felt mellow tones of bourbon, cinnamon and new spices, the taste is light and dry. Like this one. For connoisseurs...

Para mi gusto, este junto al pampero aniversario, son los rones con mejor calidad precio. En este caso estamos ante un ron dorado, recuerda a manzana madura, frutos secos y madera, moderadamente dulce y un final largo , solo o con una piedra de hielo.

This is great rum straight up, provided you appreciate an bold, oaky, dry rum. It reminds me of my Cuban favorites, albeit this is a Dominican Rum. It's $ 50.00 in Quebec which is a great price for nice sipping rum. Can't ask for more in a rum. The fact that it is priced decent is irrelevant, just a bonus

Sweetened, a bit too simplistic. OK to sip, but expect little.

Nice bottle, okay rum. Smokey and a bit heavy, certainly not everyman's friend, but I like it.

It’s not at the same level as a ”Top rum”. But if you compare price to taste, it’s well worth it.
Smooth and lot of toffee.

Me gusta, pero con la cantidad de rones tengo que ser justo en la valoración, tiene ese golpe de los 40 grados, pero ese dulzor por el que me gusta el ron no es precisamente lo más evidente y aunque el Ceuta está por debajo de los 20€ hay otros que me gustan más .

Almoast too smooth. Nothing happends when it hits your tounge except nice flavours, no alcohol burn at all. Tastes good but wait..wait......WAIT...nothing. But for the price it's thumbs up.

This is an enjoyable light rum. Not bursting with flavors or aromas, but genuinely delicious. You could have a glass of this anytime. A good straight up sipper. Great price point and value.
