A bit strong straight up, but it mixed okay. I will give it some more time (and tastes) and adjust the rating as appropriate. A 5.5 on my scale..

The 49%abv makes this pretty bitey, but the flavor is still very good. It's a little dryer than most, but still has some sugar, honey, and vanilla to it. The spice is very interesting.

A bit spicy up front, get some barrel flavors, had it neat but I usually like ice but overall an excellent rum.

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.

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.

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.

I found this rum to be quite good, but not great. My tastes lean more to the sweetness of the El Dorado's or the whiskey like tastes of Bacardi Reserva Limitada or Havana Club aged rum.
