It's not white, it's blonde. A great mixing rum and just a wonderful concept from bottle to name on this one.

I never like trying a rum that has an overdone hype train, but I tried it anyway. I was actually impressed with the blonde. Nice straw color, pleasant aroma, and very smooth. Easily recommended to anyone that wants a "white" rum.

Sugar: 16 gpl. It's a blend of 3,5, and 7 year old rums, but has similar traits found in the much older Pilar Dark rum. This rum is not as sweet or complex as the Pilar dark. I can taste and smell Toffee, a lot of Honey and Maple, some citrus plus some lingering tastes and aromas from the Bourbon, Port, and Sherry casks used for aging this in.
It's a sipping rum in a pinch,and it does make a great mixer. If you find it, give it a try.

One of my favorites now. Good for adding to your favorite mixer, enjoy on ice with a squeeze of lime.

Full bodied and interesting as all get out. Tons of pleasant flavors, not harsh by any means. Surprising to say the least.

I found this to be a good rum, but like the Papas Dark and the Zaya, it's a little heavy on the added flavoring. This has a fair amount of vanilla, along with lime, almond, and oak. It's quite similar to the Papas Dark, but uses citrus rather than maple, and is 42%abv rather than 43% (I could actually notice the difference). Certainly a good rum, but I prefer the maple to the citrus.

Cool bottle and when it comes to thick base bottles that is a good indicator of quality. Dont ask me why or how but anytime a bottle has a thick base its usually pretty good. Opening this guy up smells like maple syrup with some vanilla maybe nuts such as walnuts, no alcohol smell. In the glencarin glass it kicks up the alcohol note and then the maple syrup type smell in the background. Drinking it straight is not the smoothest but boy is it a bold white/blonde rum. This has a flavor you don't mess around with but its too much heat to be really enjoyed straight. In the diet coke, it is a wonderful rum that is on a level of nothing I had before from whites. Its deep and complex with long lasting after taste. I can say a bunch of taste notes but I much rather say if you see it buy it.

A very good rum with a nice subtle flavor. I enjoy it in Coke Zeros. My wife tries rums straight and didn't find it objectionable but did not feel she would want to drink it straight.

Yet another rum with added vanilla flavoring and sugar...and a large marketing budget. How many people bought this for the bottle and the color? Good grief.

Like a 50/50 bar, orange and cream! Big on bright tropical fruit with a hint of oak. Bottled at 42% helps to cut the sugar, which there is plenty of but without being too cloying. $30 plus tax is a fair ticket if your into this kind of rum. Not really my thing and yet I have purchased this a few times now. For what the Pilar rums are regardless of additions and marketing, they are one of the few 'sweet' rums that I find interesting enough to return to every now and then. I like to think of them as a premixed rum cocktail! Neat or add ice and maybe a citrus twist... done.
