On the nose:
Yes indeed banana, slight ethanol taste, however the banana doesn't smell like modern banana but the original banana (Gros Michel) instead of the modern Cavendish, so it is much closer to the smell of those banana sweets.

On the tase:
Again very banana, very smooth with just a hint of spice remaining as aftertaste. But there is also a slight vanilla note, but it is very faint more like it was aged in a previous American bourbon barrel.

My personal opinion, I'd have it again, either neat or with coke.

Not a sipping drink, definitely best mixed, if you love banana this is a great choicez it's got a kick and sharpness to it, but all in all I would buy again

Gave it a sniff first. Wasn't getting any banana. But when you drink it, it's a totally different story. A backbone of banana but enough complexity to be very enjoyable.

The name gives it away: there's a strong banana flavour on the nose and the palate. Relatively mild and tasty. Wouldn't drink it every day but, boy, this is some happy rum to enjoy!

Dark reddish in color. Very much banana and sweetness on the nose, some smokyness too. Banana really comes to palate with significant sweetness. Alcohol burn is nonexistent and taste lingers some time. For a sweet tooth like me, it's ok.

Molasses based, most likely a pot and column blend and aged for an unspecified amount of time in whisky casks. Bottled at 37.5% ABV and infused with banana peels โ€“ very likely with sugar and caramel added.

A truly nice and tasty rum. Made out of discarded banana peels, it truly send u all the way to the Caribbeanโ€™s Island with its sugary and sunny flavour.

Even though the name pretty much says it all, it was still a nice rum that I can see using in the future in mixed drinks since it doesnโ€™t taste fake or overly sweet.

I hate stunts. I generally despise additives. I definitely don't care for flavorants. So you could say I was not expecting good things from the label. Less so from the nose... Did I mention I'm not a huge fan of bananas? Ya the nose is just.. Banana. To its credit it smells entirely exactly like banana. Not extract or flavoring. Just slightly overripe banana. The kind that's like a day away from being banana bread material. And that's what I get from this rum. A surprisingly complex pour. I get oaty, woody notes on the tip, lovely caramel and molasses and of course the banana, which is not cloying or overdone. It's very present but I can still focus on the rum.

Which begs the question... Is this in fact rum? Or rum liqueur? That's a nice debate to have but it's labeled rum and I'm surprised how much I enjoyed it. I'll add a bottle to my collection for cocktails and will occasionally sip it neat.
