Nice dark brown amber in color. Strong alcoholic sugary aroma with hints of oak.
Molasses coats the palate with woodsy notes of banana. Oak is very present. Syrupy. Definitely coats the tongue. Hints of maple. Nice. May be too sweet for some. Slight spice on the front of the tongue.
I found it had a great overall palate. Soft after taste but had a fair amount of final heat. Buttery smell and middle taste but it finished dry.
Good smooth blended rum. Comparable to some bourbon blends from Jim Beam in Bardstown, KY. Want to try the 10 and 12 to see if there is a noticable age progression.
Excellent PR rum. Golden, bold with a smooth finish. Found it in a small grocery store in Aquadilla and it turned me into a rum runner!
Ron makes some weak rum. Its a great choice for adding rum and vanilla flavor to a drink without and taste of alcohol. Its like those flavor shots you can add to your beverage at the gas station. A tad fake flavor but a welcome addition to a diet coke. Probably the most easily alcohol product I have ever consumed.
Oh and did I mention its cheap, I mean really cheap. Most bottom shelf booze are undrinkable. This one isn't half bad. Serve this at a party just don't let them see the bottle.
N- Fresh pressed orange juice, now this one surely nose more like a liqueurs than rum. Citrus-y, vanilla with just touch of floral underlay. Some wood chip smokes whirling around the salty tang with whiff of oat. Lighter and charmer compared to the thick Cafe. (84/18)
P- Light and tasty, destined as a good mixing component with good dose of vitamin C without excessive sugar. (83/18)
F- Medium, feeling more peels now with tinge of bitterness, nutty and lightly oily. (84/18)
B/B- 84/18. Probably better than Cafe on getting rid off the weird floral nuance.

I have to say this is a pretty decent rum for bacardi standards! Tastes great pure, just can't think of what it tastes like. I never had this before and it still feels like i had it before..
Had it during a flight to South America - the flight attendant saw I was sipping the Abuelo Añejo (younger rum) and brought me this. The 12-yr is definitely an improvement when compared to the Añejo as the first smells in nose are that of toffee, caramel and a hint of vanilla, and after it comes the alcohol smell. In mouth it is smoother and you can taste less the alcohol than the Añejo. It is a woody rum so expect a dry aftertaste. I am sure that the older versions are worth exploring. Can’t wait to try the older versions!
Had it during a flight to South America. I drank it straight with no ice and found it harsh in nose (strong alcohol smell) with some hints of caramel/sugar and vanilla. In mouth it was very dry and woody, with an alcohol taste as well. Mellow after burn.
It is a good rum to have at home to share with friends who don’t know much about rums or to mix it in cocktails. It is cheap also!
