Brown sugar, oaky nose. Spicy immediate hit that lasts forever. Incredibly long. Not much gets last the spice, nice balance on the sweet side, but just don’t get many flavours coming out. Try because it’s unique, but you’ll only want a taste likely.

Lemon vanilla flavir, spicy and oak barrel. Modest as expected

You get a big taste of cinnamon and pepper which would attribute to somewhat of a burn plus the alcohol will only elevate the heat. It has a moderate sweetness with vanilla, oak, tobacco and Werther's candies(caramel)!
This could be a decent sipper, though I'd go for the XO instead for about 8 dollars more at Total Wine And more.

After tasting the Barbados XO and the Panama perfecction I though that Kaniche can't fail with anything. But this one I will only use for mixing. Taste of alcohol and black pepper.

Very strong flavor of cinnamon. Actually produces a burning sensation in my mouth. (Capsicum source also added?) Label says "artisan". Seems the opposite of artisan to me- processed food. Might be good in mixed drinks, but I don't drink mixed drinks. So problem is label. If you drink rum for the pleasure of the flavor of rum, avoid this.

Kaniche is a pretty rough ride. It has some subtle off-flavors reminiscent of gasoline, and burns harshly from beginning to end. It's not the worst thing ever and would serve you better than Malibu, but you definitely get what you pay for with this cheap bottle.

After trying the XO and the Perfeccion, which were good but don’t really stand out, I had fairly low expectations for the much cheaper Reserve. It’s quite good, and for like $16 at total wine (on sale, I think), that is an unbelievable bargain. Sweet, brown sugar notes on the front end. Way smoother than expected.

Bit too heavy on the sugar and vanilla, but otherwise an ok bajan rum, with tobacco, caramel and cinnamon.

This rum is vanilla rum. You can smell it, you can taste it. The body is sweet with a bit of lemon, but also spicy. Aftertaste is sweet and shortlasting.

Like all Kaniche and most Plantation, its sweet. Possibly the best rum for the money and my rating includes some consideration for value. Sippable but not as good as XO and Perfection. I will probably always have this on hand for an aged mixed rum that I can sip as well.

Gotta say it, this is very smooth with a load of sugar, banana and vanilla. A decent sipping rum. Feels like more than 80 proof. This is everything I thought Doorly's would be and yet isn't. I get a bit of cinnamon but not as much as others say. Definitely candied caramel as well.

Somewhat reminiscent of Jack Daniels bourbon (yes JD is bourbon too). This is coming from a guy with a whisky background but this has been the best budget rum sipper I've yet had.
