I thought this was a very good rum for the price. I like the 12 and this was not far off it. Nice floral flavours with a bit of a kick. Its fine neat but also an excellent mixer.

A very nice rum and one that seems to be relatively available on most top shelves. If I recall correctly it was smoother than their normal reserve, but not noticeably smoother to not just opt for reserve. It makes for a very smooth rum and coke.

Harsh with some strange flavour, I will wait for 12y.

Bonne odeur sucrée, plutôt fort en bouche sur glace mais appréciable quand même. (env.25e)

I thought it would be a little better than what it was for the cost. It's a step up from the VX, making it drinkable, but having tried the 12 before this, it's a big step down. It's now discontinued, but I'm not sad about that as I wouldn't buy it again when others in that prices range far exceed it, or for a few bucks more you could just go for the 12.

Great Jamaican quality. Not so good as 12 years old, but still good.

If you are looking for a strong rum, this it a good option. It is dry and it makes you feel the alcohol which is made of. You can use as a sipping rum if you are looking for harsh sensation. Worth to try!

For reasons I don't know they sell this often for (almost) the same price like the 12yo in Germany and sometimes even for a higher price, what is really odd. Since I wasn't very impressed by the 12yo I guess the 8yo won't be better...

I guess I'm just not a fan of the Jamaican style of rums. I will never stop trying something new if they get reasonable reviews and ratings, but I have had many better.
