Simply the Best
Extremely rich flavor, very smooth, great color, everything you want in a rum. To call it the Cadillac of rums would be to overestimate Cadillacs. I p
Drier than 12 and slightly less flavor, but still one of the best sippers out there. A bit pricey only when compared to other ED products, but much be
Great Rum, Souvenir
Very smooth rum, but does the smooth thing without going all bland on you. Lots of subtle flavors, highly recommended. On the basis of its taste, it w
Excellent Rum, Better Value
Really nice tasting rum. Smooth, with a little bit of smoke and a lot of dark berry fruits. Definitely a sipper. If you like Appleton, this is a rum f
Another Excellent ED Rum
Great sipper, neat or on the rocks. Different enough from 12 that you don't mind having both in the house at the same time. As always with ED, very ch
Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva
Great Sipper, Cool Presentation
Has a lot of wow factor as a gift due to the leather sack. Very smooth, so watch how much ice you use. Oaky vanilla flavour is really nice.
XO Extra Old
One of the Better Sippers
Excellent sipper, nice smoky flavor with the right amount of vanilla/banana sweetness. Also very smooth. One complaint though is pricing. In the US, i
More than a Historical Showpiece
Really nice complexity here, some bitter, some sting, some oak and a nice mix of burnt sugar and caramel. Highly recommended for a conversation starte
Has some sweet, some smoke and lots of oak in there, so a lot more complexity than most aged rums, making it a great sipper. Would merit 8.5 on taste
Very Rich Flavor
All you would want from an overproof, very rich flavour, a bit of sting and it will get you drunk faster than the regular stuff. This was exactly what
Single Barrel Reserve
Big flavors here and decently smooth. Pretty cheap to boot.
A True Premium Rum
Nicely subtle flavor, very smooth. And what a cool bottle!
Great Sipper, Best Mixer
Excellent on the rocks (probably too hot for sipping neat), nicely complex and oaky. Mix it with coconut water and you have the world's greatest drink
Almost Too Good for a White Rum
Love this on its own on ice, but if you like to mix it can be difficult as it has too much character for most conventional rum cocktails. Mixing with
Excellent Rum, but Not a Great Value
Tastes and looks great, you won't be disappointed sipping neat or on the rocks. But this is a bit pricey outside of the duty free world for the qualit
Real Value Rum
Excellent rum when you factor the price in. Definitely sippable - smooth and sweetish. Has a smoky note that reminds you it's Dominican but it doesn't
I try to keep this on my shelf at all times. It is less smooth than other 12 yrs but is so deeply flavoured, I'll take the trade off. I sip this, some
Very strongly flavoured so I agree with others that it is likely spiced. Still, it is smooth enough to sip and has a really rich butterscotch flavour.
Top White Rum
A nice, sour white rum that adds flavor to cocktails rather than disappearing like some or sticking out too much like others. Ideal in citrus cocktail
For Whisky Drinkers
Definitely one for fans of scotch. A bite of smoke in the middle makes it a prototypical Dominican rum (and Cuban for that matter). Sweet and smooth a
A Staple Rum
A must have for any collection. Full bodied and rich flavoured, surprisingly smooth for a 5 yr. Eye-catching bottle, etc. Good enough to sip, cheap en
Definitely agree that there are better out there, but this is a nice one too. Very Central American in terms of light color, soft and subtle taste, bu
Better than Expected
Given its reputation and the source of its name, you might expect Screech to be a bit harsh, but it's actually smooth and flavourful. It stands up to
Cigar Smokers Rum
Not a bad rum if you can get around the big leathery tobacco-like note at the beginning. I personally don't like it, but if you sip your rum while smo
Very smooth, too smooth in fact. Not enough flavor for the price. 1919 is the better rum.
A Bit Too Light for an 8
Flavor is excellent and only lacks depth/strength for a higher score. Haven't had the Black yet, but am expecting it will solve this problem. Can be h
Very dry and invisible in most cocktails. Interesting to mix with coconut water as you'd swear there wasn't anything there. If this is what you want f
A sippable rum that is fairly cheap. Flavors are definitely oriented towards cigar smokers. Very similar flavor, actually, to Flor de Cana.
Sippable but Better Mixer
Has the distinct Appleton fruity taste, but a bit astringent. Definitely needs ice if you want to sip. I loved it with coconut water and all Appletons
Nice but Bland
Decently smooth but much too bland to sip. Does however add a distinct flavor to mixed drinks. Great with coke or juices. Packaging could be improved,
Flor de Cana
Rum for Whisky Lovers
Not a bad rum if you like whisky, but not for me ultimately. The good: cheap, some character up front, smooth finish. The bad: not much in the way of
Sweet, Very Sweet
Nice as a dessert rum, very sweet (heavy vanilla in particular) and smooth. Can't have more than one or two, though. Can taste the Trini/Angostura inf
Not for sipping, where it tastes a bit like a spicy raisin. Also it's not incredibly smooth either. Still, makes a good, flavourful mixer as you'd exp
Cheap and Good Enough
This is a white that disappears into cocktails and mixed drinks. If that is your thing, this is a good option as it's cheaper than most too.
Has a strong, raw cane smell/taste to it, but reasonably smooth. Compared to the 8 or 12 it seems like an out of focus version of the older Appletons.
5 Star Reserve Especiale
Some Bright Spots
Definitely as dry as you'd expect from an agricole, but this isn't a good thing. Very light color, light taste. On the plus side, decently smooth and
Flor de Cana
Black label 5
Don't sip this, you may die of boredom. It is smoothish, but has little flavor. Not a bad mixer if you like the invisible rum thing and just want the
Nice bottle and reasonably cheap. For sipping, it is smooth but forgettable, literally. I left it on my shelf for months because I forgot I had it!
Everything you hear about this rum is true, unfortunately. A rich, deep flavoured, beautifully presented, orange liqueur. Definitely not a rum though.
Fernandes Black Label
Paint Thinner Anyone?
Avoid this unless you are really drunk or need some paint removed from your siding. Very harsh and only a strong molasses note saves it from being a t
I don't like most agricoles, but this is the worst I've had. Tastes like someone put out a cigarette in a bottle of cheap scotch. And expensive to boo
