Wish I could get this where I live. It would be my standard mixing rum.

I first tried this rum on Grand Cayman. It is good on the rocks and better in a mix.Not a sipping rum.
It will add a little kick if drizzled over a Tortuga Rum cake.

Nose - I’m not entirely chased away...it’s not too shabby. Light and easy, mostly molasses, caramel, toffee, leavened by the light notes of coconut shavings, honey and nougat. Some dark fruit - raisins, blackberries, ripe cherries.

Palate - Again, light, with some firmness lending it a bit of authority and solid tastes. Nougat, honey and coconut, like those white Ferrer or Raffaello confectioneries my much-loved chocoholic daughter can’t get enough of. There’s some sharper fruits here -- ripe pears, apples, berries -- as well as a touch of salted caramel and molasses, and brown sugar in a hot latte. Nice.

Finish - Warm oily, sweet, smooth. No problem. Honey again, coconut shavings, a raisin or two, but for me to tell you there’s more would be reaching.

Thoughts - Given my despite for its blandly inoffensive white sibling, I didn’t walk in here expecting much. But it wasn’t half bad - a completely unadventurous and reasonably tasty light sipping rum. Maybe it’s sold in the right places after all.

The smoothest tasting rum with a Caribbean aroma. You can't go wrong with any line of tortuga unfortunately it's not available in many state in the U.S. i find the gold here and there but not the 12 and 141 or coconut those are my top picks

Good cause its only $15. And actually you get a bottle free if buy a few bottles of the other Tortuga rums at the port shop.

This is not a sipper or on the rocks. This is a classic mixing rum

Can you make a stop to any of the Caribbean islands, visit the Tortuga Rum Cake factory and be lured into the free tasting of the Tortuga 'rums' ? Not really, so let's get straight to business. The Tortuga Gold has a strong alcohol taste and a nasty burn at the end, so not recommended to be a neat sipper. Mixed it with Coke and there is a slimmer of hope left.

I purchased this on the island of Grand Cayman, a few years back and enjoyed it. I recently found it again in the Bahamas! Usually associated with their luscious rum cakes found, it seems, on every Caribbean Island, Tortuga rum has a nice flavor that can be enjoyed neat but ideally suited, mixed in soda. Try baking your own rum cake using Tortuga rum...ah, paradise

Sugar: 0 to 5 gpl. This is a good rum for mixed drinks, especially rum and coke. Lots of flavor that blends well with Coke or in Pina Coladas. It's not available in Canada and when I am in the Caymans, or on a cruise I pick up a couple of bottles. I would not classify this as a sipping rum, but for a bar rum it is a very good value.

Not bad. Has a little bite to it, so I tend to mix.
