I tried my first bottle of this rum months ago and never bothered to submit my review, so here goes on my second bottle just opened. At only $40 US from Total Wine, this is a pleasant surprise. My initial rating of 7 remains the same.The bitter finish may put some off, but a few ice cubes mellows that out a bit. The age statement is honest and there are no additives. It's younger brother at 7 years is also the best rum that I found for under $20 US. I only hope that these rums keep coming to the shelves over here.

This is just another new branded spirit from Infinity Spirits, finding many of these new brands at Total Wine. Have not been able to find out much more other than aged 16 years in American White Oak distilled in Nicaragua, similar to Flor De Cana. So the meat and potatoes; beautiful packaging and bottle clearly labeled with true age, nice wooden cap excellent presentation for an upscale rum.beautiful light mahogany color, great aroma notes of oak and baking spices. First sip sweet on the tongue not as sweet as Diplomatico Reserve, then a open outpouring of flavors, oak, island spices, smooth as can be. I love this rum and it’s funny I’m not a fan of Flor Da Cana. Long lasting depth, great find.

This group hit a home run on this rum, find a Total Wine and try this stuff. I don’t want to put it down at $35.99 bottle this is excellent.

A pleasant surprise. Strong oaky flavor. With a little burn, but not too much. Straight over mixed. The rectangular bottle’s nice too.

The rum has a very light sweet/fruity smell. It is sweet on the front end followed by a very good fruity taste in the middle to end. It has a relatively smooth finish with a heavy fruit aftertaste.

Great box. Great looking bottle. Nice dark amber color. Been down this road before... and then the aroma and taste are disappointing. Except this not the case with this rum. It is a bit dry, a hint of spice and just the right amount of sweetness with a nice lingering aftertaste with minimal burn, at least for me and I drink almost all rums neat. Fair price at TW under $45. Absolutely would recommend.

Harsh. I was hoping for so much better from this rum. The nose was thin and mostly wood. The initial taste reminded me of tongue depressors from back in the day. Then the burn started. For only 80 proof, I wasn't expecting so long and hot of a burn. Adding an ice cube helped marginally with the burn but did not improve the flavor. Next I tried it in a rum and Coke, maybe I could salvage the bottle? Nope, that is the only rum and Coke I have poured down the drain.

All in all, I regret buying this rum.

Picked this up at Total Wine for $40 based on the previous reviews. I was not impressed. It wasn't bad, but didn't really have much character. There are definitely better rums at this price range. The Total Wines around me have Ron Diplomatica Reserva Exclusiva for around the same price or cheaper, defintely grab that over this.

Really enjoyed this Rum. I’ve been moving away from the sweeter aged rums with added sugar and vanilla flavor. There is a definite spice on the first sip,
a little ice really opens it up. Closest thing to a whiskey you will find in a rum.
Great up after dinner or with ice. Without a doubt my new favorite.. hard to get sometimes my local Total Wines is out but I have 2 bottles on reserve.
