I was not familiar with this rum, but I’m very please with the quality. Beautiful aromas of brown sugar, molasses and a slight banana on the edge. Palate is medium sweet with good viscosity and very smooth. Love it
Had a double neat at a bar, so it was expensive. I was expecting a bit more character, however when I discovered it was a Bacardi then I was not surprised it lacked character, however it makes a great bacardi! Smoother with more oak than the normal Puerto Rican rum. Still lacks that panache though.
This is an easy sipper. I did not get a big burst of alcohol at the beginning of the sip, and it developed slowly. There is a strong sweet flavor that dominates the bourbon bitterness, so it tastes more like a rum than a bourbon even though it may have aged in bourbon casks. It also has a lot of body - not syrupy, but very present. The finish has a strong honey flavor that makes this rum much more palatable than others aged in bourbon barrels. For finger food to accompany this, I might choose something slightly snooty on crackers rather than chips or pretzels. It sort of begs for that treatment.
Beautiful caramel color, notes on caramel/oak/vanilla on the nose, similar flavors on the tongue with additional notes of bourbon and added sweetness on the tongue, nice smooth finish. Overall an easy sipper with some nice complexity.
Smells a little bit of caramel granny smith apples.
First taste had great promise. Smooth deep caramel taste. No burn whatsoever. Second taste was more medicinal, prunes and wet tabaco leaves (not in a good way).
I can see why people like this rum, but it was a little weird for me with a lingering funky finish.
