Schöne Flasche und sogar Nummeriert. (Nachbewertung vom 28.12.2018)
Tja, auch schon das beste an diesem Ron. (Nein)
In der Nase fruchtig und etwas bissig. (Relativ dezent, Karamell, Kakao, Leder, Früchte, nicht bissig)
Im Gaumen doch etwas zu flach, Trockenfrüchte, Toffee, Leder. (etwa so)
Nicht so süss. (jawohl)
Abgang schwach.
(Gutes Preis/Leistung Verhältnis für Einsteiger.)

Beautiful bottle and even numbered.
Well, even the best thing about this Ron.
a slightly fruty and biting nose.
On the palate, a bit too shallow, dried fruits, toffee, leather.
Not so sweet.
Weak in the finish.

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.

Very dry and oak taste, but the distillate is not so good.
Alcohol in aftertaste.
In this price, I prefer Diplomatico Mantuano.

This wonderful rum from the DR won't kill you. Taste good but not the smoothest either.

Klasický, nič moc rum, ktorý sa nedá vychutnávať. Dá sa vypiť, ale neulahodil mi, skôr by pasoval k cigarám.

Picked this up very cheaply in Tenerife a few years back. For the price its an excellent golden rum.

Easy drinking, good price for the quality. Better than much other pricey rums and a sure buy.

I like this rum.
I think, this rum has both rich side and dry side.
There is sweetness as brown suger with vanilla flavor and also smooth nuts oil taste.
This price at this taste, it's really a bargain !

actually hard to describe because there weren't many significant characters in smell and taste. It's smooth and easily drinkable, maybe better to use it with Cola...

Nice amber color, smooth but not too sweet. Need 50 characters instead of 44. Happy now?

Smagte denne på en rommesse og var ret skuffet, ikke lige noget for mig
