Inner Circle was made by CSR Australia (Commonwealth Sugar Refineries) as a novelty gift for their industrial customers (and the board members, of course); hence the name.

My fellow Australians will feel a twinge of pride taking in the quality produce of the fine land; but after you have, you will probably go back to the Caribbean for your rum.

There’s nothing wrong with it — it’s pretty good — and it will get you where you want to go; but, much as I hate to say it: there are other more rewarding rums out there.

Beenleigh have done well with the green an dblack dot versions but the red dot version is tasteless and pretty poor to be honest

This one needs a can of Ting or Ginger beer to make it drinkable.

Tried the Inner Circle Red Dot Rum while vacationing in Queenstown NZ. Pretty decent bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Strong and dry oakiness to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Pleasant when mixed in. Cheap as chips and easily available.

Not for sipping neat. But as a mixer it is a nice rum. Quite strong, so not much is needed for a nice rum&coke. The bottle will last a bit longer :)

I was given a bottle of this Rum by someone who raved about it so was ready for something great but then i opened it. Boy was it different to what i imagined. Strong initial tasting of something i cant describe but after a few it grew on me a bit but not enough to want to go back and try it again. May be alright as a mixer but i dont like flooding any Rum with sugary syrup or bubbly sweet mixers. A Rum for those who like it strong and a bit different.

Happy as a change from my usual choices, but this is quite 'fiery' and not as smooth as its label would have you believe. Probably won't buy this again since there are better choices for the money (even on a lightning deal) but it is not a bad rum.

Here in Australia, this is a budget rum that certainly sits a bit above the no-name bottom shelf offerings. By no means spectacular, but fine as a pleasant mixer. The other 3 rating was a bit harsh, in my humble opinion.

Starts off nice on the palate with some of those heavy pot still flavours coming through and then quickly goes downhill. Something really unpleasant about this one.
