I'm not a big fan of the light rums, but this is one of the best I've had. This is one of the few light rums I've tried that I really enjoy straight. Light vanilla, sugarcane, and oak. Soooo smooth and creamy. VERY highly recommended if you like light rums!

Toffee, caramel, vanilla, and a wonderful thick mouth feel. Goes well with tropical drinks, but not my favorite as a sipper. At $30 a bottle, price is it's biggest negative.

edited to add sugar test results- 8g

This rum has been modified and has had an increase in ABV with a new name called Planas. After reading reviews for both, I decided to grab that last bottle of Blanco on the shelf of the liquor store before it is gone. At $27, it was a bit steep, but it is a good dry white rum with only 8 gpl of added sugar.

On the nose is faint alcohol and nothing else. On the palate, I was groping in the dark to find hints of coconut and banana. Going down the pipe was minimal burn with no unpleasant after taste. It can't quite compete with Plantation 3-Star Artisinal or Vizcaya Cristal, but it is still a good white rum that won't go to waste.

Simply the best white rum I have tried. It could almost be a good sipper! Not tried it in cocktails yet

Pleasant smell of lightly fragrant pineapple (poured into a snifter). Mild and smooth flavor of banana cream, vanilla, toffee, and caramel. The mouthfeel has a wonderful warm velvet quality. I'd pour it into a snifter and drink it neat, or mix it with a good cola. Haven't tried it in a daiquiri, but I'd downplay the lime and sugar if I did. Tasty rum, good for when you want something delicate to sip on.

A nice white rum for mixing, doesn't burn that much compared to other white rums. The smell reminded me of glue.

Tasted at Laka Lono 10/9/22
This is a solid rum, with fiery flavor.
The fourth rum of my day, it held up well to two Plantations and a Don Q vermouth aged so it must have been a good rum day :)
Edit 3/26/23 delicious in a Rum Rickey!

Tasted at Laka Lono on 10/9/22. Pours clear. Mild pineapple and chloroform aroma. Slightly cardboard with a strong sugar candy flavor. A bit better than the Blanco.
