Heaven in a bottle!
My favorite rum right now, don't ask me why... Tried it one day at a local bar. At first the kick was harsh, but then all this stuff started happening

3 Well-Deserved Stars from Puerto Rico!
A friend of mine mailed me a bottle brought back from his visit to Puerto Rico. It instantly ranks up there with my favorites. A distinctly different
Aloha Tiki Rum
Really strong, really good, really smooth... pleasantly surprised. Discovered a bottle at the liquor store next to the Danbury airport, probably the o
Another Plantation Contender!
I tried this one yesterday at Fat Cat Pie in Norwalk, CT. Their distributor suggested it when Fat Cat ordered more Jamaica 2000. It's very smooth, sof
XO 20th Anniversary
Smooth as Bourbon!
Finally got a chance to buy a bottle today and tried it this afternoon... It's everything it's cracked up to be. Smooth, complex, smoky... almost bour

Slip and slide...
Great bottle to slide along the bar... low center of gravity, like an electric car. As for the rum, a little one note on the vanilla, a little medicin
Got me started back on the road to rum
I fell in love with the bottle, the concept, everything... not often that advertising and a brand image hooks me in... then I drank some and remembere
From Holland, strong, distinctive, flowery but agreeable after taste. Good stuff, conversation piece named after Churchill's quote: "Don't talk to me
The bottle of rum I ordered hasn't arrived yet, so I had to find something else to tide me over in the meantime. Went to a liquor store I hadn't been
For the Tiki Bar
I've tried a few coconut rums because I'm a big fan of tiki drinks, it's a must in the mix. Though I'm no big fan of Captain Morgan, I must admit thei
The cork was rotted, had to scoop it out, strain the rum, and pour it back in. First shot went down like 90 proof with an aftertaste of upchuck. I put
What you expect!
It's exactly what you expect a good rum to taste like, it's strange... I took a chance reading all the reviews, bought a bottle, it's as good as they
Came into contact with the brand during a green trade show few years back when I still wrote frequent posts for the CocktailOrganico faux blog. I'm no
Organic Artisanal Cachaça
Again, not a big fan of clear rums, but this one was sent to me by the company when I was still posting to the CocktailOrganico blog. Cuca Fresca is a
Now comes with new bottle art
Reminds me I still have a half bottle of this on my shelf... nice tasting, if not all that colorful. Smoky flavor. The new more conservative bottle ar

Glass Bottle Nips!
Tried it this afternoon. I expected more syrupy from an old rum. It's a little antiseptic under the nose, and a little harsh in the throat, but there'
Special Reserve 15-Year
As promised, Rum Ratings send me a nip of this rum in the mail for joining the site and writing reviews. It's not bad, although I suspect it's probabl
Good Honest Stuff
It's a good rum for the price, better than most in fact. A little harsh, not really smooth or sweet enough to drink neat, but nice in mixed cocktails.
Super heavy on the chocolate! Not a bad thing, but more like a flavored chocolate rum than a rum-rum. Very sweet. I want to believe the flavoring is i
Strong, harsh, nice taste, but no real magical feeling once it's gone down... I love the bottle, the spirit of the brand, certainly remains on my shel
Rhum Orange Liqueur
Cointreau, Grand Marnier anyone?
Good as an after dinner aperitif, a little pricey to douse on pastry. An orange liqueur, not really a rum despite what it says on the bottle.
An old standard
I've been drinking this since forever, half the time without not knowing it, since this is probably the favorite bar staple for making Hawaiian drinks
Cellar it for a few years!
I'm a staunch advocate of green consumerism, so I have mixed feelings. It's awesome distillers are experimenting with organic spirits. But it takes a
Who is the model who posed for the label?
Strong, sweet vanilla taste... more like a coconut rum. Great with pineapple juice. Not a high end brand, but the bottle art is rad. A fun rum.
Gran Reserva 18
Descendant of Seth; son of Enoch, said to have lived 969 years.
Someone handed me a nip of this one the other day, thinking it was going to be something quite special. I wasn't thrown back by it, just a good standa
What the Volt is to the Tesla
I knew trying it for the first time that I was drinking a Kraken clone. It has the color and the texture, but none of the subtle after taste and buzz
Every bar has this
Honestly I can't even remember what it tastes like... it's become so ubiquitous... remind me to try it again later. I suspect it's chuck full of artif
Needs more personality
I wasn't a big fan of this one.. it simply didn't taste like anything distinctive. Cool name, cool bottle, but maybe wasn't my day.
This bottle sits on the shelf of this bar I know, nagging at me, three quarters empty... it smells OK but I'm not about to spend 7 bucks to try a sip,
Robert Louis Stevenson Deserves Better!
I found this bottle for ten bucks. It's cheap, harsh, heavy on the vanilla... but love the bottle. Don't really know what Geronimo has to do with it.
The Real McCoy
has no artificial flavors, inks or perfumes
They had me at no artificial flavors... Neat, it's a little harsh and medicinal on the uptake. It's positively unbearable when iced for some reason...
Hoti, Zen Patron Saint
The Gentleman Stumbler blog has a really funny review of this rum. It's so ubiquitous I bought a bottle just to see for myself, and sorta regret it. P
Surely branded for biker rallies. I can see this bottle bandied around Sturgis, or lying around tattoo parlors. The taste isn't all that great, not me
8 bucks at Total Wine. You get what you pay for. Instant migraine. Just happy I'll have the empty for my pirate bottle collection. The label is printe
