Desde el olfato hasta el gusto un ron de cuerpo, suavidad y aroma muy bueno.

Lo único que no me gustó fue que tiene dispensador y no corcho...

Very good rum and well priced. Sweet notes but not as complex as Zacapa 23 and Zafra. Good for sipping.

Tried on the recommendation of employee at liquor store. Great recommendation. Chilled adds a whole new dimension to this rum. I know this is not a surprise but it went from a 5 to an 8 after chilling.

Nice one for sipping especially on rocks. It's not perfect but I appreciate it is an overall nice experience - not lacking in any of the rum aspects. And it kinda grows on me so I may rank it even higher later.

Its a good rum for the Cubas Libres and you can drink it in the rocks!

Exceptionally smooth finish and nice sweet flavors without being loaded with sugar. I taste a combination of oak, caramel (in the way of sweetened puffed rice like "Golden Crisp" cereal), and vanilla. All combined it somehow brings forth a prominent chocolatey taste. Slightly viscous but not syrupy. I'm happy with this purchase as there is no cloying flavors, its slightly sweet, and it's different than anything else I've tasted. Exactly what I look for when trying new rums.

Esperaba más, la verdad que para un ron de 18 años se ha de exigir un poco más de pasión

No wonder Hemingway moved there. Thoroughly enjoyable sipper. Can't imagine mixing. As others have said copious amounts of butterscotch and vanilla with oak and tobacco hints to be enjoyed with very little burn. I kept hoping Ricky Ricardo and his band would suddenly morph into my my man cave as I was sipping this rich little treat.

A very smooth Rum with strong butterscotch and vanilla notes. A bit on the sweeter side for me but I usually have this in my cabinet as a staple. Great rum for the price.

Me sorprendió que siendo un 18 años tenga tan concentrado aroma a alcohol. El sabor dulce al principio frutas, vainilla pero con un fuerte y perdurable cierre a alcohol
