I usually avoid the brands rated below 6.0 here, but the price was about $18 (equivalent), so I took a risk. And, for this rating and especially for this price it was really good value for money. First taste was sweetish and light (but without a feeling of having tons of sugar put in there), and I would be happy to sip it for whole evening with pleasure. Comparing to the Mount Gay Black Barrel I recently tasted, it was less complex, less dry, less "mature", but much easier and pleasant itself. Also, went really well in drinks. I think it deserves much better rating that it has now, so I added a point for that.

Very light vanilla and oak aroma. taste is smooth again with vanilla but missing any complexity. Aftertaste is slightly smoky and spiced. Not bad, but nothing special. 6.5 points

Sippable with ice, otherwise to harsh, non complex flavour.

Strong and bold. Certainly requires ice if to be sipped or consumed on its own. Makes an acceptably pleasant rum and coke. Beautiful gold color, but other than this, it's nothing to write home about. Significant alcoholic bite.

You can get this at a good price almost all the time, at Β£17-Β£18 it's worth every penny, sippable neat with no unpleasantness for my palete but nothing to write home about.

Compared to other rums in the category, this has more flavor due to the heavy-charred oak barrels. It's a little hotter and spicier, at which point I'd rather grab a higher end rum. It also doesn't mix well with everything (definitely don't try it with ginger beer) but it did make one of my favorite daiquris at its price point. All in all, it's not an all-around rum at its price point, but I can see this being the lightly-aged rum for some people.

I've seen this on the shelves for a while now and finally decided to give it a try. I get a little heat with it. An oaky spice flavor up front on the taste with a long vanilla finish.

It's a nice rum to drink on a casual 'beer' night. It's not a heavy taste. Perfect to combine.

A good rum nothing wrong with it but nothing to shout about another one I use in cocktails

It is not really aged so you cant expect but light golden color. The taste is not that pleasant but after a while, I got used to it :)
