Nice rum with a powerful aroma and warming feeling. Dry oak, smokey, leathery. It has a bite. Very good value for the money.

This is a classic Dominican/Cuban style Rum. In Germany not much more expensive than the Barcelo Gran Anejo. It should be between 20-25 €. I have to add, this Rums really benefits if it is drunked with a cigar. This really can't be said about most rums in this price segment. I I add one point.

Un peu brut de décoffrage, un final intéressant, même si cela reste un rhum linéaire. Super rapport qualité prix. Je suis fan.

Ne příliš sladký rum, mě připomíná trochu bourbon, vyvážená chuť, dobře se mi pije. Klidně si ho příště koupím znovu.

Un bon rhum de dégustation, puissant.
Nez peut être un peu agressif, mais agréable en bouche. Notes de caramel et boisées.
Note de réglisse en finale.

Sugar: 5 gpl. Soft on the nose and very smooth going down. Nice caramel aroma with a soft oak taste. Not a lot of burn but what there is sticks with you for a while. So soft it will sneak up on you in a mixed drink as it tends to get lost in the mix. If you don't like a strong rum taste in your mixed drink then this is a good rum. In a pinch this could be a sipping rum. Great value here in Canada at $39.
If you can't decide what to buy, then give this one a try.

Este ron es una desilusión total, a pesar de que es añejo su sabor no es agradable

big favourite of mine. Great value for performance. Love the almond/nut smell as well as the chocolate. Taste is great, sweet, yet with touch of alcohol. Just loving it

Jede produzierte Flasche ist mit verschiedenen Nummern versehen und gilt daher als echte Rarität. Kann ich im Geschmack nicht ganz nachvollziehen.

Had a few rounds of this at a bar in the dominican republic. It's a good rum with a nice and soft scent of caramel and figs. The palette offer notes of burt sugar, oak and caramel, with a rather smoothe finish. Good value.
