This is a very particular rum in that there's context that goes around it (similar to rating an agricole - you need the context of what they're trying to do). In this case there is a long tradition in island nations to knock a coconut down and put rum directly into it to consume with a straw or to take coconut water ice cubes to put into your rum. This rum basically cuts the corner of having to do that and does it for you but without tasting artificial. The nose is just a tad coconut you can barely notice it, the taste is definitely 8+ year aged rum, the finish burns like a 3 year old rum, think abuelo 12. Definitely worth it whenever you have a Miami mind-set or are watching Scarface.

This is a really good sipping rum, with the addition of coconut water. I tried batch 3, which had a nice combination of sweetness and a bit a salinity from the coconut water, but it isn't over powering, and the flavors come through on the finish. It is really refreshing and I could see drinking this on a summer's day.

Tasted a sample of Batch #3 and was pretty impressed. Coconut water is used to let down cask strength rum, which yields a more viscous mouth feel without very much coconut flavor. This is not like other artificially flavored rums. Subtle sweetness and a nice long finish.

This is good. Mixing the rum with coconut water gives it a much more authentic taste that those ridiculously artificial coconut rums like Bacardi. There isn't much else to this. A little punch, no complexity, no finish. Just good pineapple taste. Would make a nice mixer.

Rum tasting on a Saturday night because why not. Coconut Cartel Special Rum has a unique bottle and label design. Light golden color. Very clear and distinct coconut water flavors and mixed straight in the very young Guatemalan Rum. Very sweet ending from the coconut water. Rather dry ending. One of the most unique flavored rums out there for sure.

Well I saw a lot of reviews regarding this rum so I have to give it a try, it’s not what I was expecting a little salty with a hint of sweet, not my top choice for sipping.

No hiding the coconut flavor here. Personally too forward on the coconut to drink straight, but you could if that’s your preference. Still smooth. Good scent. Great for mixing into cocktails

The use of coconut water in this rum is a game changer. It sets it apart from any other rums that I have consumed. It goes down very smooth and is great for sipping.

Not as much coconut flavor as I was expecting. Have only tried this on ice and was pleased. Nice mild coconut flavor on the finish, with a nice little burn at the end.

This rum is great with anything!!!
As a sipper goes down smooth with a few drops of water even better. A rum old fashion its incredible since its made with coconut water (the rum). Did a tasting and its was a hit!!

Neat, this brings salty seawater. Add a cube of ice and you'll get the flavor of the coconut water, as well as a hint of banana pudding. A nice summertime sipper.
