In spite of the so-so reviews on "Rumratings", I thought I would give Juan Santos 9 yr Reserva Especial Rum a try and I was pleasantly surprised with this Columbian rum simply because I prefer dry rums with no or a minimal amount of added sugar.
My first observation was the darker almost reddish colour of this rum which I find appealing. On the nose I detected very little aroma other than a faint smell of caramel. In the mouth this rum felt crisp and seemed to come alive with hints of spices and caramel. Those who enjoy whiskey or dry rums are more apt to enjoy this rum, if you prefer sweet rums, this rum is not for you.
The centuries old tradition of shipping rum in casks lives on in Squadron. A steadfast blend of fine Jamaican and South African dark rums, oak cask matured to provide a rich characterful blend and smooth satisfying taste. Squadron captures the flavour and stirs the spirit.
Made from Imported Jamaican rum that is blended to perfection with the finest local spirits to produce a rum that is dark and rich in colour, but smooth and light in flavour.
Squadron is a quality rum at a mainstream price point and has been in SA for over 50 years.
