I had soured on all rums from this company and saw this one on clearance for only $60 US. It was too good to pass up. To my pleasant surprise, it wound up at the top of my list for this company. That was months ago and that bottle is long gone with no more on clearance. It was a pleasant dry rum. The fine print on the sides of the gift box states that a lot of the congeners have been removed. So for those of you that rave about congeners, stay away from this smooth rum.

Update April 16, 2023: I finally found another bottle on clearance for $60 US. Being that it is bottled at 94 proof, I now have it classified as over proof, even though my threshold for this classification usually starts at 100 proof. In my book, if one needs to add spring water or ice to make a rum drinkable, then I classify it as an over proof. Adding ice cubes to this dry rum is where it really shines! I originally had it ranked in my top 18% by taste of all rums that I have tried. This has not changed at all. For $60 US, this excellent dry rum is still a bargain. Even if you can find it for less than $100 US, it is still a good buy. The taste is memorable without being offensive. When the bottle is finally gone, you will be asking yourself why you cannot find another bottle on clearance.

This was a disappointing rum. Higher priced then the Reserva Exclusiva but nowhere as smooth or tasty. Overall it has too much of the alcohol and it burns the nose and your taste. It's not as sweet as the RE. It seems that it's been rushed to market and I think they should take it down to the normal 40% and let the base rums in this vintage age a bit more.
As it is now, it would be good for a mixer but as a sipper, it's not for me.

A good sip of this rum gives a nice feeling in mouth and troat. Do enjoy this one, if drinking to quick it becomes just liqour.

I like very much Diplomatico 12(reserva exclusiva) and somebody persuade me to try this one. But taste of this rum was what I expect from it, maybe it was question of alcohol 47 %, maybe something else but for me it was wasting the money.

Meilleur que le No1 Batch Kettle. Bon rhum de dégustation un peu cher, mais le reserva exclusiva est un meilleur rapport qualité/prix. Si vous avez la chance d'y goûter, sauter sur l'occasion.
