Tasty, but not quite great

I bought this rum while vacationing in the Florida keys. It was a nice rum to drink while hurricane partying. But this rum is a mixer. Although it has nice flavors, this rum lacks depth and it has an overly alcoholic taste to it. At $33 USD, I’d rather invest in something else.

For all practical intents and purposes this is a bourbon. And when I'm in the need for bourbon I buy bourbon. Next.

Very smooth for a Barceló (will still warm you up) and good for drinking neat.

Great rum for cuba libre, slightly sweet which makes a great mixer.

Smooth, gets better after the first taste. Always have a bottle of this to have it ready when friends come over

Блеклая вкусоароматика, достаточно питкий, достаточно посредственный ром.

Pretty looking bottle, especially the huge 1.75L one. Nice darker colour, the rum is a little boring at first - not much happening. Then the taste comes in. Nice hints of wood and leather. If the taste was a little stronger from the get-go and also in general, this could be an 8. Maybe it could also use a little more voltage - it just seems too smooth for its own good. Still great especially given the price.

Good Qpr and sippin' rum, but a bit closed on the nose and not that aromatic (it opens up after 20-30 min in the glass).
Nice brown/orange color, not too heavy and bodied but also, not to light or thin bodied.
Otherwise decent alcohol and not over-burning on the throat. Fair rum.
