Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It really isn’t a sipping rum to me. Nothing offensive about it if you use it as a mixer or cocktail rum, but there are cheaper runs that do that just as well.
Sweet on the nose and really sweet on the pallet, with brown sugar, vanilla, and oak.
Caramel and grass on the nose. A strong grass and sugar cane on the pallet. Not as hot as I would expect from an overproof rum.

Harsh on the nose and hot on the initial pallet. Has a bit of sugar to it. Smoother finish than the initial taste suggested.
The black barrel definitely adds a layer of smoke / wood flavor and reduces the harsh alcoholic taste that young rums have, good for a dirty mojito or compliment to piña colada.
Well spiced but maintaining the rum taste. A bit sweeter that capt Morgan, but not as sweet as kraken.. a good chance it'll become my favourite (when camalcamelcamel inform me of the best price)
In the bottle purchased at Total Wine in Tampa for $16.99. Not sure if this is still a distillery that remains open. Claims to be a “continuously aged” rum. Is that supposed to be a permutation of solera? The unique/ Weird thing about this rum is that every bottle has 2 little chunks of Hungarian oak wood sunk to the bottom. Perhaps that’s the continuous thing. Pours a rich dark amber. Odd aroma of quinine and mustard. Up front sweet honey flavors. Slightly biscuity. Finishes with a mild black pepper. The wood is discernible, but not a dominant flavor. If all 5 years was in the bottle with 2 chips, barrel aging does not have to fear obsolescence.
Somehow the barrel expression resulted in unique egg-yolk taste, it meshes well with the wooden background. No sugar detected.
Dočítal som sa, že tento dominikánsky rum so 40% podielom alkoholu zreje 12 rokov. Fľaša ako od koňaku, s peknou zlatou aplikáciou na hrdle. Vôňa je skôr nenápadná, jemne karamelová, so silným dubovým podtónom. Chuťovo ide o suchší rum, pomerne ostrý, okrem vanilky a dreva dominuje koža, po prvom otvorení fľaše s výrazne alkoholovým, až technickým podkladom. Chuť je svojská, určite nie nepríjemná, cítiť tu aj určité ovocné, prípadne až kvetové odtiene. Vo výsledku však z neho mám dosť surový dojem, potreboval by ešte dozrieť, záver je trochu alkoholový, až horký. V zásade je ale tento druh vychutený zaujímavo, aj vzhľadom k nižšej cene sa jedná o celkom zaujímavú voľbu. Subjektívne silných 6.
It has a very pleasant taste - oaky and sweet. The taste is semi sweet, oaky with vanilla dominating. A really solid sipper. Value for money is really impressive as it costs around 30 euros.
Grassy but less character than martinique or guadeloupe rums. But performs adequately with coca cola and lime.
Caramel, a little spice. Maybe nutmeg or something. Thyme? Pours slightly golden white. Sweet finish. Just had a mini of this from a total wine in Lauderdale.
Horrible. On top of that you can get rums that taste just as horrendous for half the price. Then again, why would you buy such rum? You're better off buying a bottle of water.
