Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Reading some of these reviews, I really gotta wonder. I get no harsh initial burn, no drain cleaner taste, no hot finish - just a solid white rum with enough flavor (mostly unripe banana and coconut ) to make interesting mixed drinks but which is not unpleasant to sip. Maybe someone let their bottle sit in the sun too long? (Very bad for alcohol).
Avast! As white rums go, this one be better than most! Compared with The Ship's Doctor (Real McCoy 12-year), this be a right fine rum given her "experience". On the nose, she be dainty and crisp... sweet, but not sickly sweet, with vanilla and oak. As for taste, she be smooth... not as sweet as she smells, but nowhere near dry either. Oak and caramel are on deck first, and any vanilla from before must've jumped ship. Cowards! Somewhere in the middle, there be a flash of citrus fruit, and towards the end there be a nutty flavor and a bit of spiciness. Not a lot of burn goin' down the hatch on this one. Might this be a good sippin' rum? Aye, though she not be as strong and flavorful as most sippin' rums, the subtleties in this rum might be lost when mixin' with other libations. Still, this nurse has legs, and she be ready to treat whatever be ailin' ya.
A relatively neutral nose with subtle unripe fruits like pineapple and banana. Perhaps a little hint of coconut in there as well. The palate is light, delicious and refined with a hint of the fruity notes mentioned above. Leans towards the dry side but not in a tannic way. Great refined white, is you need something that doesn't stand out to much in your cocktail. Can be had neat as well.
Wanting to expand my white rum selection, I found this one. The nose gives me a faint banana and carmel. Tasting notes, I get vanilla, a fruity note that I haven't placed yet and some spice on the end. I get a small amount of heat initially before the flavors come out.
Initially warm, sweet, and vanilla. A hint of coconut. Almost clear with a slight yellow tint. Smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. Barely a hint of funky.
Kristallklar im Glas.
In der Nase präsent und doch nicht aufdringlich. Ein frisch abgebranntes Zuckerrohrfeld, der süsse Saft karamellisiert an den Stängeln. In Vanillesauce eingelegte Hölzer und kandierte Früchte, ein paar geröstete Nüsse erweitern die Dimension.
Am Gaumen sanft und geschmeidig. Die Aromen erfreuen die Zunge und all die feinen Nuancen schweben ausgewogen darüber. Früchte und Zuckerrohr zeigen ihre besten Moves. Karamell und Vanille sitzen in der Jury. Die feine Asche, vom Feld angeweht, ist so vergänglich wie ein Traum.
Im Abgang wie ein Sonnenuntergang in der Karibik. Früchte und Karamell ziehen sich dahin die Vanille geht etwas früher. Ein lauer Sommerabend bleibt in Erinnerung.
Ein toller farbloser Rum für Drinks, auch zu pur geniessen. Für Barkeeper, Entdecker und Einsteiger.

Crystal clear in the glass.
In the nose present and yet not intrusive. A freshly burned sugar cane field, the sweet juice caramelizes on the stalks. Woods and candied fruits in vanilla sauce, a few roasted nuts add to the dimension.
The palate is soft and supple. The flavors delight the tongue and all the subtle nuances float balanced above. Fruits and sugar cane show their best moves. Caramel and vanilla sit on the jury. The fine ash, wafted from the field, is as fleeting as a dream.
Finishes like a Caribbean sunset. Fruits and caramel drag on the vanilla goes a bit earlier. A balmy summer evening lingers in the memory.
A great colorless rum for drinks, also to enjoy neat. For bartenders, explorers and beginners.

This rum is nice a dry with just a little complexity. It really feels like the standard rum to go into almost any cocktail that doesn't need a ton of bite or oak. Think daiquri or mojito less tiki drinks that need the rum to stand up.
Comparing to Plantation 3 Star the aroma starts more alcoholic, but over time is just more neutral. Very pleasant. Can’t wait to try this in daiquiri!
By far my favorite non flavored rum to mix with coke, does not have a harsh flavor and balances well with everything I have mixed with.
For me the most balanced rum out there. Great nose and very well balanced taste for a great price. No additives which is really good too. But it is almost too well balanced, so there is not that little rough edge which you sometimes want. And just a tiny bit too sweet.
