Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
there are worse out there... but also a lot better... it wasnt that i didnt enjoy the bottle, it was just not that noteable
Not really much to say about this rum. A bit of dryness there & makes a great as a mixer. Not to strong, & very easy to drink. A good rum at a reasonable price. Though should be around $40 not $50.
I found this very dry and almost whisky like in taste. Quite a lot of alcohol in taste and a medium burn in the throat. Feels well made and a very straight rum but for me its just a good mixer with both cola and ginger beer.
This rum's colour is a nice golden amber shade, surprising light for a rum aged for 5 years. While it has a slight alcohol/chemical smell to it, it is a solid rum for mixing with cola. The resulting rum and cola is light and sweet and very smooth, although the rum flavour is a little "thin", for those expecting more complexity from a 5 yr old.
This rum is very dry and serious. There is no aditional flavour except light fruit notes. It is quite wild in throat. Rum for experienced people and every day use.
Actually, I'm not sure what the deal is with the plastic wrap I found on this and the 3-Year Barbados. It makes it look like it's price - which is cheap. Thanks to Total Wine and R.L. Seale's connection you can get some good stuff for $10, $15 and $20. It may not be great (like the XO), but if you have a chance, give it a try. I'm not sure there are many other 5 year rums out there for under $15.
Decent rum, great price, 1.75ml plastic bottle.....perfect for pool-side.
I picked up a 1.75 ltr of this in Florida for $20 and now wish I had gotten two. Not as rich or complex a sipper as the 10 yr XO but for the price it really can't be beat.
