Avast this be an outstandin' black rum! Aye, there be blacker rums, but few as good. This rum smells sweet, but not overly so, with vanilla, burned marshmallow, and a wee bit of caramel. Toasty smelling goodness! As taste goes, she be a little on the sweet side. Just enough to not be "dry". There be milk chocolate on board, a wee bit of caramel from before, spices, and wood. Not oak. Wood. Bright and earthy wood. She be smooth with barely any burn. This rum be affordably priced and worth every doubloon. May I drink a bowl of brimstone and fire with the Devil if I not be tellin' the truth!

I enjoy both the Vizcaya white and the black, both very smooth with great flavor. Highly recommended.

Very, very smooth. Probably the second or third smoothest rum I've had. It has a slight artificial taste, reminiscent of Captain Morgan, but still a very good rum.

I originally gave this rum an 8, but as I continue to try numerous runs, I come back to vizcaya black and realize that itโ€™s not an 8 but to my taste it is a 10. In fact I like this rum so much as my evening drink I think the other 9 rums I currently have on my shelf will last much longer than my next several bottles of Vizcaya.

Have high expectations from this rum. on the nose, I find it very nice with some sweet notes and vanilla tones. but on the palate is too sweet I'm pretty sure is heavily dosed with sugar.
On a side note, they mentioned the rum is created using Agricole technique, similar to the Rhum Agricole from the French-speaking islands, but honestly, I didn't feel anything related to this style of rum.
It goes down well with coke or on Old-Fashioned.

I have been to Blackbeard's castle and took the rum tour. Which I would advise any of you to do if you are a rum fan. I was looking for this rum but unfortunately I never found it in any stores in the Caribbean. I tried it and enjoyed the smooth taste that it had without a lot of the burn. you can drink this either as a cocktail or like I did straight for a dessert on many occasions until my bottle ran out. I am looking forward to buying my next bottle and enjoying it just as much as this one.

Woohoo gooood. Like a dreamwrapped in sex. This is probably one of the happiest rums I've put in me. Like heaven was made of caramel, brown sugar, and black women.

I really enjoyed this rum. Not as good as some of the top black rums I've tried, such as the Kraken, Punta Cana Black, or the Lemon Hart Blackpool Spiced, but it's definitely better than most black rums I've tried.

It has a nice sweetness to it, which I enjoy. Smells and tastes of chocolate, vanilla, spice, charred oak, and marshmallow.

Not a bad rum at all, though at this price point ($29.99, 2018 price), I'd go with the Kraken, which is slightly better (to me) and a bit less expensive.

Subtle bouquet of vanilla. Get hints if vanilla on the front end and chocolate on the back end. Also get a very subtle hunk of oak that enhances the flavor.
