This is a unique white...its sweet! Its great in a rum and coke. The price is inflated. Yes, its one of the best whites out there but still almost $50 after tax is a bit much for a light rum of any caliber.

This rum presents with Avery sweet aroma, almost like bubble gum, but it doesn't deliver that taste. It starts very sweet like pure cane sugar, and has no noticeable flavors after that. It is very smooth to drink but after a few sips the sweet taste weakens on the tongue and it just leaves a watery taste. It doesn't have enough flavor for a mixer and cannot stand on its own.

Although not a bad rum, this is one that should be skipped if there is something clearly better on the shelf at the store. The first thing I noticed is the aroma after popping the synthetic cork. It has a very noticeable astringent odor. Made me think what I was about to sample would be way too harsh. However it was mellower then the aroma indicated. However it's not great. Sipping it exposes a rather noticeable sweetness with obvious vanilla and caramel flavors...even...butterscotch??? Actually the more I think about it, it does have some resemblance to butterscotch lifesafers candy. I wouldn't want this as a sipper but definitely would be interesting in mixed drinks. Any recipe calling for coconut rum could use this as a substitute for a variation on the recipe.

Expecting something undrinkable but it was actually smooth with hint of caramel on taste and bitter burn. Good for mixing but might be better white rums for that for the same price

Tasted at Laka Lono on 11/13/18. Pours clear. Alcohol aroma jumps out before the faint molasses. There's not a lot here, but perhaps the best of their offerings? Harsh palate sends you off with a residual burn.

For an American rum this is pretty tasty. I got caramel, vanilla, toffee and maybe a little bit of orange.

I am not a real white rum fan unless i am mixing up a chicky drink. Tasted this stuff at a rum festival and we all rather enjoyed it. Thought the flavors were very welcoming and would be good in a mixed tropical drink. Will be picking up a bottle when i find it.

40% ABV. Very unique nose. Extremely reminiscent of Red Vines. Artificial cherry flavor. Liquorice. Almost Hampden-like, but not in a good way. So far this is really not my profile. But at least there's no astringency, and the fruitiness could make for an interesting mixer. Perhaps the taste can rescue it? P: No, this is terrible. Tastes like artificial licorice candy. Very sweet and medicinal. Cherry finish.

My goodness. I do not recommend this rum. There are plenty of decent white rums out there. This one, frankly, gives American rum a bad name.

I like this rum very much. It is very sweet, and may be too sweet for some. I would not drink this rum all the time, just like I wouldnโ€™t drink my high-end/expensive rums all the time. Every time I come back to this rum I enjoy it a little bit more.
