Of the rums I have tried this one may be the best. Smooth and flavorful with not to much spice or that nasty twisted face you make after a drink of some of the others. I would defiantly buy again and may try some f the other Don Q rums.

This rum takes you to the place mentioned in the title: the stars.

Because of its little extra touch of alcohol, it is quite heavy for a night of drinking. The combination with its amazing rich taste - the taste is pure and does not feel like to much extras are added - makes it a dangerous rum for a good night of drinking.

Please inform your taxi driver because this rum isn’t easy to refuse, and that’s a damn compliment!

This is one of the better spiced rums I've tried.

Smells and tastes of oak, sweet vanilla, spice, and caramel, with just a hint of bitterness. It's a very good spiced rum.

In fact, as of this review, this is my second favorite spiced rum after the Koloa Spice. Maybe a little burn to it, but great tasting!

This rum surprised me. Reviews gave me an "ok" expectation, but the taste was much better.

Drinking this on the rocks is a bit heavy for me. Cant handle alcohol in its purest form. Mixing this gives me a great taste of smooth rum. No chemical reaction, just a fine rum with good taste and a good aftertaste.

Would buy this more often as a decent replacement for "drinkin rum"

Lots of vanilla and spice with a good quality base rum behind it.

Brought over by friends so don’t know price point. Not bad, with vanilla aroma and forward note. Mixed well and better than any I have tasted.

Jednoznačně nejpříjemnější spice rum, koření jen zlehka, jemný, přírodně nasládlý

For it's cost, I found it decent. A quality bottle that was moderately sweet and disappeared without any drama!

Previously I only tried some spiced concoctions from Captain Morgan and such and they never made me any happier but I thought (inspired by Paul B) to give it one more go. But this time as dry as possible please and with some real rum in there, not some vanilla-sugared flavoured vodka.

So I found this one (a nice deal at €20) with for at least 3 years aged rum, real spices and at just 9 gpl. Oh, and an ABV of 45% so it seems serious enough.

The nose is rather sweet, with mostly vanilla, fudge and some cinnamon and a hint of oak. On the palate you notice the higher ABV, spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of cloves. The vanilla is a bit much for a young and rather light-bodied rum so I think some is added as well. There is a little smokiness from the also present oak. It ends with a mocha/dark chocolate and spiced caramel. A peppery touch stays also present for quite a bit. Despite the 45% it goes down easy enough but it is a bold rum for sure.

For a spiced rum it is truly nice but spiced rum? I don't see me sipping this all night (even at 9gpl just a tad too sweet) so it is a rum for one or two shots after a winter stroll instead of the glühwein/vin chaude or an old tawny porto I would normally take. Nice addition but at the €30 it normally goes for I'd rather spend them on anything from Foursquare or such. But by far the best spiced rum I tasted, that is certain.
