I just saw reviews, and i am quite suprised with so many bad comments. Ok, i am rookie on Rum journey, but i just love this one. If someone can tell me better one within same price range, i would be thankfull. Cheers!

The reviews suggested this would be a decent buy, and it was the most unusual rum I have ever tasted, but not in a good way. There is an initial hit of rum taste but it quickly falls away to nothing, a void, as if drinking water, then eventually you're hit with the alcohol air at the end. Sip after sip the same result. It's lost as a mixer too, I ended up simply fortifying other drinks as if it were just alcohol.

Gefiel mir am Anfang nicht so, wurde immer besser als die Flasche sich mit den Monaten leerte.

Apéritif. D'abord le goût de caramel et vanille pour un final très long.

Got a dram of this in the advent calendar. Was a bit harsh as a straight sipper, but would be really nice work a mixer.

I'm wondering why it is so underrated here. I find it very pleasant. One of my favorite.

Note: I'm a sipper. My opinion is based on sipping characteristics.

This is one of the most hated rums, it would seem, because everyone blabs about how heavily "dosed" it is and them lying about the actual age. I can't say whether either of these accusations is true but I can say I really enjoyed my experience. Yes, apparently there is some sugar involved, whether it's for coloring or taste, so what? It's not like in the Zacapa, that's for sure. And at least in my end of the world, this does not cost anywhere near Zacapa. So in my book, it is a great thing to have neat.

Mild balanced and unipressive rum. Easy to drink for but I prefer Dictador 12 y.o. for this price.

Мягкий, сбалансированный ничем не выразительный ром. Пьется легко, но за эту цену я предпочту Dictador 12.
