A+ rum, price is right proof is right. A bit obscure in the realm of classic rums. Perfect right down the middle young rum with a solid foot on the dry side. Care has been taken into crafting this, If your seeking good quality rum you will not be disappointed one bit.

I saw the positive reviews on this board, so i figured I'd check it out. First-off, and this is of minor significance, but online images gave me the idea that this had a cork-cap, yet i was dissapointed to receive my Scarlet Ibis with a screw-cap... sorry, I just hat screw-caps!

Now, little more to the point - the real dissapointment came when i took my first taste: The rum was completley off-balance, inelegantly bottled at 49% (which i don't usually mind). Before any flavours reached my mouth or nose, i was overwhelemed by blatant notes of acetone. After the overpowering ethanol died down there were supple of hints of vanilla and tropical fruits, but overall it was just way to harsh for me.

However, as a mixer it worked alright with coke but that's about it... Sorry guys, can't see what all the fuss is about

Nice rum some spice with smooth finish. Could be a good sipping, rum lost some with coke.

This is what you'd expect from a good rum but rarely get in a single bottle. Strong but with mild and wide spread notes of wood and tropical fruits and a fulminant development in your mouth and palate. Not the cheapest but I will definitely get another one! Use only in high quality cocktails, if not better straight!

View: Pours light gold.

Nose: Very banana forward with a ltitle vanilla in there to boot.

Initial Tasting: Banana and spice up front; little bite.

Body: Vanilla lingers a bit with banana still ruling the roost.

Fade: Finishes with vanilla and banana on the tongue.

Fresh and light aroma. Smells like sweetened sea water with a subtle brininess to it, in a good way. Interesting peppery harshness at the front. The back end is where you find the faint molasses flavor. The finish is surprisingly smooth. No burn in the throat but a pleasant heat in the chest (that 49% doe). Would work great in a well crafted cocktail when looking to add a sharp flavor profile as opposed to sweetness. Definitely not an entry level sipping rum but enjoyable neat or on the rocks when looking for a peppery smack in da mouth.

Unfortunately my bottle didn't come as pictured above with the attractive long neck and cork top. Better luck next bottle.

This is a lovely well-rounded rum; somewhat dry and perfectly spicy. this is really smooth for a 3-5yo spirit. At 49% you would expect it to be hotter than it tastes too.

This goes on the short list. VERY WELL DONE!!!!!

This is an outstanding dry estery rum that has a lot of clove flavor to it. tastes like a spiced rum but it not. Adds a very unique aspect to mixed drinks, especially when used as the jamaican component in a Mai Tai.

When it comes to my bar staples of rum for casual enjoyment I either swap between this and Pyrat. I remember the old recipe for pyrat, the one that was a little drier and a lot less sweet. This reminds me of that. The initial sip has a little more burn than usual, but that doesn't bother me.
