Excellente qualité, ça commence avec un gout de caramel et se poursuit longtemps par un mélange de saveur complexe chêne,vanille et noix. J'envisage déjà acheter ma 4 ieme bouteille.

This rum at least in the USA was discontinued sadly. There are a few dusty bottles left in my location at several stores. I bought two, one to drink one to collect.

This rum needs time to breath at its heftier 50% ABV. The blend is aged about 2-7 years Let it sit in the glass for a good while and let it open up a bit.

Aroma after breathing has a nice spice to it, alcohol wafting through the breeze. The tasting is classic bajan, with a nice bite. A nice classic strong spice hit on the palate. A classic example of how Bajan rum should taste. This at 50% does not feel that high of an ABV. Incredible smoothness on its finish no bitterness. The finish lasts for a long while, nice spice that lasts.

If you can still find one I suggest the buy. An easy sipper for me..

This rum took me back to my early years in which I loved rum and simple life style.
Made out of molasses and the purest water found in the beautiful Barbados.
I spent many sunsets i that island sipping this rum paired with fine cigars. Unforgetable experience.

You have to be in the mood to be warmed up to drink this straight, and it will add a hefty kick to any drink you mix it with. That being said, I like the smooth mellow flavor, it's just classic "rum", a little vanilla with hints of molasses.

At around $20 this rum is a screaming bargain. It shares some of the interesting qualities of its outstanding big brother Extra Old, and is bottled at 100 proof, though still sippable neat.

All you would want from an overproof, very rich flavour, a bit of sting and it will get you drunk faster than the regular stuff. This was exactly what I was looking for relative to Mt. Gay Eclipse, much more concentrated taste. I know they're meant to be a different blend, but I find that MG Eclipse is like this with water. I recommend black on the rocks (where there is some burn, but not as much as some reviews would have it) or with coconut water or coke. Really stands up to all mixers and is well priced too.

A very smooth running but I prefer the sharpness of Eclipse. Lovely flavour and good aftertaste.

But at a higher alcohol percentage and mostly pot stilled. Classic Bajan rum- dry, bananas, caramel, leather, toffee, and delicious.

Mellower than the eclipse which means a little less coke and slightly more enjoyable rum characteristic.
