Vizcaya VXOP rum is produced from sugar cane that is distilled in small batches then aged for between 18 and 21 years in bourbon casks.
The Oliver & Oliver distillery that produces Vizcaya VXOP rum was founded by Oliver Juanillo in the 1800s. It originally operated in Cuba, but in the 1959 revolution moved to the current Dominican Republic location.

I write this as I’m suffering from a cold, so my nose isn’t very trustworthy. Very nice flavors on the tongue with lots of complex tones. Nice, smooth finish with a “warming” burn. Overall, this is a wonderful rum! Nice flavor profile and finish. Hopefully this cold isn’t obscuring anything negative. This is one that I plan to keep stocked up on.

jen ta cena by mohla byt priznivejsi
I found this one on the bottom shelf with dust on it at a major liquor store. Surprise...Surprise, this is a nice rum and won't break the bank. Well balanced, and smooth. It is a sweet rum but not too sweet.
Very nice sipper and even better with a nice cigar.
This is not exactly what I was expecting. It is almost more of a dessert rum than anything else. For me almost exactly like Brinley Gold but with a little more warmth to it, I am sure due to the little higher alcohol content. Not bad at all for a winter night but really nothing super special. Tastes a little flat like a soda that has been sitting out too long. At twice the price of Brinley I am a little disappointed and expected more and I know it is not classified as a spiced rum but it sure tastes like one to me.
I picked this one up because the bottle caught my eye but was surprised at how much I enjoyed it for the price. Without a doubt, the best Dominican rum I have tried so far.
The "nose" has a slight sweetness with a hint of vanilla, the first taste, exactly the same. Back taste has a delightful hint of pineapple with the slight earthy wood tones of the aging barrels.
The smoothness makes this a fine sipping rum and for the price, I will buy more.
Sweet fresh honey, cinammon, clove and beewax in the aroma, body start with sweet freshness booming to warming dark chocolate in the finish, touch of beewax in the body also.
I’ve paired this rum with cigars ranging from mild to full from multiple countries and every pairing has been a memorable experience. Smooth, right amount of sweetness, hints of vanilla, caramel and chocolate. Very cubanesque indeed. Anyone that appreciates rum and cigars will definitely enjoy the pairing.
3 is what i give to sweetened rums, this one also failed the hydrometer test !
i see people lowering points to good aged agricole rums just because they are agricole ...
lowering points for sweetened stuff have more sense to me !
Vizcaya VXOP 21 is a very nice experience. Smell of vanilla and a hint of chocolate. Long, delightful aftertaste that rolls around in the palate. Thank you, Vizcaya!
