This is a very nice rum for the money. It's my go to rum together with Doorlys 12 year old for a good rum for the right price. Nice sipper neat, but also good with a cube of ice. Not too sweet, caramel, vanilla, nice tropical notes. Recommended.

Very dry, not very sweet and heavy alcohol taste. Not something I'd seek to purchase again. Good enough to finish the bottle, but not eagerly.
Not my style, quite fruity. It has a character. Did not enjoy sipping it.
Sampled at a friend's house. Was pretty impressed but didn't spend much time with it. Will eventually buy a bottle.
I love the sherry cask taste of this rum. It’s oaky and dry but a little sweet too. Good for mixing- not a sipping rum.
Smell: a bit alcoholic, grassy notes, molasses, vanilla
Taste: a bit more alcoholic than I like but still smooth, molasses, very dry, oaky, vanilla
Nice sipper but it’s more of mixer for me. Great for Cuba Libres
Complex and mild rum, with some rough edges, a lot of wood. Not too sweet, but still very drinkable. Very nice to drink 2-3 glasses pure without anything added to it or combined with cigar, that smoothes out the slight harshness. Coming directly from the dominican republic.
A smooth and tasty rum. Complex flavors with sweet and nutty notes.
Bruine rum, lekker maar mag iets zoeter voor mij. Ook een rum die in de smaak zou vallen bij menig whisky drinker.

Good value in this price range... 8 out of 10
Similar to my Barbancourt 15, this is one of my favorite "sippables" in this price range....
If you have the room in your personal rum bar, this one is worth having...
