Definitely one of my "meh" rums. Needs plenty of cola to dampen its disappointing taste.

If you're looking for a dark rum to use as a mixer this is the one. It does not have the gasoline finish that Bacardi Gold inflicts on its drinkers. It's a general all-purpose party rum.

Cinnamon and ginger notes with buttery vanilla taste.

Honestly not much difference between this and Bacardi gold in coke. Buy if you want your bar to look a little nicer maybe haha.

No mucho que decir. Solo para cocktails. Olor a alcohol, sabor a alcohol!

I found it a little bitter straight, and that bitter edge worked its way in when mixed with cola. There is certainly a strong caramel flavour here and it isn't too bad, but I would rather go for the Havana Anejo especial.

Not the best but not bad. Definately not the smoothest drink I've had straight but would mix decently with other beverages.

First had this in Jamaica in 1972. I was a rum and Coke guy just out of the army. My taste has shifted to aged, sipping rums, so this is no longer an option. I have fond memories though.

Yup,, agree with all the others, nice mixer - would pick others in preference however, still a good rum
