I tasted this years and years ago in Jamaica. Perfect to mix but sipped neat there are way better rums. If the price is right just buy it

While I know this rum isn't really meant as a sipper, I'm giving it a go neat.

On the nose there is banana, pepper, salt, caramel, cloves and some sourness. The palate is caramel, light oak and pepper. Very thin and watery; simple flavours. The finish is coffee and very short.

Overall a very thin and simple rum, but there also isn't anything very off-putting.

Maybe as a well brand but nothing great going on here, so save it for mixers, don’t torture for me to drink neat.

Was enjoying this as a mixer in a delish tiki drink. Then the end of the night came and I decided to try this on its own. Felt the burn for sure. Will leave it for the mixer world at best.

Aye, this rum dances the line between heaven and hell. Decent aroma! The flavor be spicy, with hints of vanilla and... raisin? This be not an overly sweet rum, but definitely not for sippin'... not without a lot of better rum in you first! There be worse rum to be had. Still not sure? Flip a doubloon. Heads, you try a better rum. Tails, you try a better rum.

There's not really anything else to do with this other than mix it.
