This is candy in a bottle. Shame on you if you call this a Rum!! This is artificial garbage especially made for children. Excuse me if you feel offended!!!

Got one because of the funky pirate style bottle. At the same price as a lot of XO rums this is a major disappointment. Very sticky and sweet. Hideous in a mix, average at best as a sipper.

This is a drink created especially for ladies I assume, as alcohol content is less, even though there is still a lil alcohol burn at the start, just to show some “character”. One that can be mixed (price is on the lower end of quality drinks) or sipped. This drink is very sweet, sugar (caramel) taste predominates and there is a veeeery little hint of oak and plum.
I got a headache quickly after, hopefully not because of some artificial alcohol in this :(

It looks like rum but it smells and tastes vanilla. Too much vanilla for sipping. The vanilla takes over your mouth. I would only have it for sweet drinks.

Not the worst thing ever but really bad.
Too sweet and feels like atrifisal flavours were added.
Ridiculous rum for the price.
If you are thinking of buying one, don’t!

this stuff is very sweet and has an artificial banana flavor. almost like a liqeur instead of a rum. also the bottle gives no hint on whats inside, so most will be in for a bad suprise with this one i guess. there may be people who dont find it so bad, but these people would also enjoy a glass of cpt. morgan spiced rum (urgh)

My brother-in-law gave me this to try with him after it first landed locally - a few years ago. It is more like a rum-based liquor rather than a traditional rum. After opening it was like a tropical vacation hit us in the face - banana, vanilla, caramel, sweet fragrances. The taste was equally as circus-like. Tons of banana, vanilla, caramel, other tropical fruit tastes. It is very smooth and very sweet. If you're looking for a sweet, rum-based tropical liquor to drink that's tropical and different - or something fun to toss in your girlfriend's pina colada--go for it. But, this doesn't belong on the shelf along with other rums - toss it next to your other liquors.

This "craft" rum looks decent but it tastes not much like rum. Super sweet and with weird tastes of vanilla and banana, for me also with a slight pear aroma.

Too much sugar, too much artificial flavors (vanilla & brown sugar) . Definately not a pure rum at all. Not my taste, but still better than vodka. I'll never buy again, but will keep that empty bottle.

I’ve learned if you have a nice bottle at a medium price, typically the rum is garbage. This rum is exactly that. No defining quality. Not much different from a cheap bacardi.
