The perfect mixer for a Rum and ginger beer (can't cal it Dark n Stormy as Goslings have trademarked that name) nevertheless its a perfect rum for that drink.

I enjoy this dark rum in many cocktails & it’s relatively cheap

Very plain with a raw alcohol heat at the end - maybe some molasses in there. Good for mixing which is no good for me most of the time as I prefer neat. .

This is a very dark rum, almost impenetrable by light when in the bottle. Caramel colour in the glass. The smell of the rum is sweet molasses and alcohol. Sipping straight assaults the senses with harsh alcohol burn... Although the sweet molasses still comes through. This is OK with Coke, hopefully better with Ginger Beer. Disappointing...

Okay, my palate is not as good as yours if their is such a subjective thing. I bought this rum on a cruise to Jamaica and thought it would pretty good. Well, I was surprised by its flavor. I did taste it while I was there, but it is much better now that I am home. Maybe it's the nostalgia of it, maybe not. I like it and it is a nine to me. I don't have a doctorate in tastology but I like this one if it matters to you.

I first started drinking this rum in Mombasa Kenya in 1981, and even today i still go back to this one rum because the taste is just sensational and gives me the zing that is required in life like no other rum does

First off, the label in Canada looks like it was printed in the worst part of the 1980's. A fellow recommended it to me. I should've known better when he said, "If you like this, you should try Lemonhart". Too alcohol-y, almost paint thinner.

Dark mixing rum. Good with ginger beer. You really can taste the molasses. This is for mixing or cooking only.
