Possibly the finest rum I've had at this price point. Gloriously smooth, brilliant on the nose, and excellent on the throat. Cant believe this is 7.8 rated, its far far beyond that
Very smooth. Sweet just enough to make you think it could be sweeter while at the same time appreciate that's not too sweet
Not much to say, than it is a worthy rum with good analogies, to buy. The least you can rate it is 7 but really worth your time and money.
Second tasting, slightly disappointing. Initial taste is very smooth but on the weak side. If you swallow you get a kick with a slight alcohol burn. Aftertaste is the best thing about this one for me, very smooth and very long lasting.
Tasted at Laka Lono on 10/14/21. Rich caramel aroma. Delicious! Rich fruity brandy-like. Long toffee finish.
I know hardly anything about rum I'm just giving it a rating so it shows up in my 'cabinet'. That said, it was very easy to drink. Seemed somehow less flavourful than the Diplomatico RE I had, but also smoother. After drinking this the Diplomatico seemed like it had much more of a burn.
"Mount Gay Extra Old rum review by The Ultimate Rum Guide"
"The nose is very fruity. Raisin, prunes and currants with a little banana and some tropical fruits a little pineapple perhaps."
