Had it not been for all of the reviews on here stating how this is really a banana liqueur, I would not have bought it. Since most banana liqueurs are dirt cheap and of very poor quality, I sprang $33 for this one. I also needed some banana to maybe cancel out the awful artificial orange of my bottle of Pyrat XO. This may also mix well with my coconut or spiced rums. This could also be used to appease the Bacoo spirit that likes bananas and milk. It smells like banana. It tastes like banana. It goes down like banana and vanilla. There is no burn or bitterness. For banana lovers only.
To me the first smell of this rum was very inviting, yet somewhat artificial. The banana taste makes this an interesting choice for those who prefer sweet alcoholic taste of rums. Overall a fun rum to sip, but don't expect to much of this.
I stumbled on this rum when it was recommended at a local liquor store. A great sipping rum with lots of flavors and very smooth. The rum is sweet and may not appeal to everyone but has very distinct flavors.
Not a rum for me. The taste of banana is very strong and has a bad after taste.
Nice smooth rum perfectly drinkable without mixer would definitely recommend
A nice sweet rum, the tastes of banana, vanilla & sweet caramel could be a bit much for some but it's a smooth rum you should try at least once.
A present for me but inthibk the rum is to sweet. I Can drink it but maybe this is better besides à coffee after dinner or something.
Un bon rhum même si je suis novice et que je n’ai pas encore l’expérience nécessaire à sa totale découverte.
Une odeur de banane est perceptible ainsi qu’un mélange de vanille et de caramel.
Au goût, le caramel et la vanille sont plus facilement perceptible tandis qu’un arrière-goût de banane est légèrement perceptible.
I received this one as a gift. I tried it neat to see how it goes but soon switched to adding coke to it. I enjoyed it as I like the sweetness and would definitely have it again.
The nose smells very sweet. Llashings of caramel and toffee.
"It barely even tastes like alcohol in any way shape or form. No mid palate and definitely no finish not even the slightest hint of alcohol burn. Maybe a little bit of woodiness as it goes down."

Sweet, fun, different 8 out of 10
It is fruity and easy to sip. Not sure I could do an evening of just this while hanging out with friends. But good for a variety and conversation.
