This rum has a scent that I can easily and will compare to Brugal Anejo. If you had a glass side by side I may easily mistake the two. Brugal being one of my favorite rums I can say this smell was very inviting though not surprising maybe brugal uses the same bourbon barrels from this company. I have consumed over 20 bottles of Brugal anejo and would say this smells exactly like the newer white fiber bottles. The older gold fiber bottles have a different flavor and smell which I also enjoy, the taste more so.

That being said the flavor is much stronger being aged in new barrels as opposed to used, this has a stronger whiskey flavor to it. This has a much longer and stronger flavor to it. The finish lasts as long as 5 minutes. Prichards is sipped much easier and is more enjoyable to sip slowly.

I would call this a full flavored Brugal any day of the week. I like this rum and it is overall a rum any rum connoisseur should sip at least once.

This Rum is a True American Colonial Style Rum aged in new charred american white oak, not used barrels. Phil really nailed it with this fine spirit. Great rums, distillery and very nice people at the distillery.

It's good stuff... It's a little on the drier side and is unnecessarily expensive. But, still, its a rum worth trying.

I was not impressed with the Prichard's Crystal but they have redeemed themselves with the Prichard's Fine Rum. A beautiful amber color with a delightful sweet aroma. I am so terrible and trying to identify odors but can tell what I like and do not like. I like this rum's aroma. The flavor however has things I do identify. Like the initial sweetness revealing toffee and vanilla flavors. There are others in this rather complex rum but my palate ain't THAT educated. So I will identify what I can. The sweetness is replaced rather quickly with a distinct oak tone that can be a bit overwhelming. It's a little stronger than I normally like but not objectionable. This also brings in a pepperiness and spiciness which slowly fades to a very subtle cotton candy and vanilla flavor. This is definitely good stuff but it seems to be priced a little too high. Makes it a bit cost-prohibitive. There are rums out there similarly priced that are better. However if you care to try something nice and are willing to pay the price, then get a bottle of this.

You can really taste the flavor from the barrels that are used. Flavorful, smooth, an excellent sipping rum.

I have been tempted in recent months to try out Prichard's rum, especially since I live close to both of their distillery's that finally I have given in to temptation.

That said, it is hard for me to determine the flavors. Maybe after I down a few more :D It is smooth with subtle hints of sweetness. I do enjoy this one neat or on the rocks. Tonight I am using it in cola and well, it's decent. It doesn't enhance that sweetness that others like El Dorado 12yr rum does for instance. You get more of the rum flavor without overly changing the sweetness of the cola. However I enjoy the sweeter rums like El Dorado.

So I rated this one as a 7. I really do enjoy this one. Like one other commenter stated though, for the price, I did expect a little more. You are looking at $42 + or - depending on taxes for this bottle.

Although young rum, it has good matured tastes. This rum is the only one American rum that it is introduced in French rum book, “101 rhums à découvrir”.

One of the best sipping rums I've tasted from the continental United States. I found this on a trip to Lexington.
