This is priced like an aged rum and has the complexity of one. Funky taste due to the Batavia arrack component. Great mixer or sipper.

This is one of the best white rums I've had. Very good to mix with.

A balanced, flavorful and complex rum. Good for both sipping and mixing. At the UK Rumfest in 2012 they mixed it with Ting (Jamaican grapefruit beverage) and it was great!

Banks displays a heat and strong heads taste unexpected from an aged white. I would still recommend it for mixed drinks such as mojitos, but not to sip.

This rum was on my to try list for while given its pedigree. It is not a great sipper. Far too odd beyond funky in aroma and taste. I simply did not enjoy this one. Possibly great to mix but my mixed drinks still had that odd taste which I did not personally enjoy. It is smooth just odd in profile.

Great rum introduced to me by a bartender in Vegas. It has relatively limited distribution making it a real threat when found. Its simply extremely enjoyable to drink.

A mish mash of flavours.

Some of the rums in the blend are prominent others might as well not be there. Not worth the money a very average white rum and the price is just silly

Not a big fan of your average, vodka-like white rum. That said, I'm a new fan of this one. It's full-bodied and chock full of flavor, with a natural, semi-sweet finish which quickly dissolves into gentle spice. Can't wait to make a batch of daiquiris with this because they will be amazing. BTW, it's great straight up as well.
