This is a great rum from Barbados. Huge flavor here. This is fantastic. Well worth the cost. My only issue was a broken natural cork when opening. If you like loud flavored rum with a strong start to finish this is it.

This Bajan rum is classic Barbados. It is simply amazing. Well Balanced with aromas and flavors of smoky oak, leather, chocolate and citrus. You can really taste the bourbon barrels it was aged in but it's not overpowering. This is a simple but complex rum (if that even makes since) that is one of my favorite sippers. Cheers

Big, soft and true to it's heritage....Rustic but never rough. Warning: Once you start sipping... you realize you can finish the botttle in one sitting (if you have a few friends join you...)
Got it as a specially priced 50% off closeout item for $18 US!
Rates a 9 rather than an 8 because it is the best value aside from Flor de Cana 4 year.
I'm going to try it in the 1939 Don the Beachcomer Mai Tai recipe. (Previous winners as the foundation of this classic are: Barbancourt, Bacardi 8 and Eldorado 12)

So this is cockspur 12, not 12 year old, its 12. Something that average age of rums in the this bottle is about 12 year old. But 12 years in Caribbean islnads is long time in maturation. This is very well matured and smooth, Something like aged bourbon or cognac, not as fine as cognac, not so big as bourbon. But this is very good and quite cheap. Real bargain and high quality. Not very rummy rum, but I really recommend this, if you like whisky and cognac also. But if you hate all other things and drink only rum, then ... I don't know...

The aroma in the bottle is mild...subtle even. I think Barbados is rapidly becoming my favorite source for rums and I'm not certain why. I notice that a lot of the rums I really like come from Barbados. Hmmm...maybe it's time to take a vacation there. A nice sweetness in its flavor with a little of an oak tingle...quite smooth with no real burn...just a nice warmth that flows down the throat and lingers leaving a nice caramel aftertaste. Definitely a good sipping rum.
