Better than Zacapa XO
Did a side by side with zacapa xo. This was smoother with equal depth and flavor. Best rum I’ve ever had.
XO 20th Anniversary
Best rum, best price
World class. I’d put this up against any rum in the world, any price, in a blind tasting.
Hard not to give this a 10
It’s the best rum I’ve ever had. Don’t know why i didn’t give it a 10. Just assuming that magical 10 is out there somewhere. Love the strong vanill
El Pasador de Oro XO
Dollar for dollar one of the best rums around. Sip this beauty.
Side by side winner
Tasted side by side with Royal Jamaican and Appleton Rare with four others. This was the clear winner.
Hard not to give this a 9
Love the strong vanilla and molasses flavor. On the sweet side.

Can’t wait to try the 18
This is probably the best 12 year I’ve ever tasted. Dying to try the 18. Very sippable. Great bargain.
Now a 12 year
Not sure the 10 year is still in production. Tasted the 12 year side by side with Monymusk and Appleton Rare with four other people. This was the cle
Flor de Cana
This is a borderline rum: barely sippable but a good mixer
Probably best as a mixer, but it’s smooth enough to sip, and a great value in that regard. Very strong on the vanilla if you like that.
Rare Blend 12-Year
Side by side loser
Tasted side by side with Royal Jamaican and Monymusk special reserve with four other people. This was the clear loser. It’s sippable, but barely. 7
Drinkable, even sippable
Very light and sweet. Lots of added sugar. Put this Maryland distilled rum against Flor de Cana 12 and Mount Gay black Barrel. This was clearly sup
High quality mixer
Wouldn’t bother with this as a sipper. A high quality mixer.
Strong, probably not for sipping
If you want to make good, strong cocktails, this is great. Not really a sipper though because at the price you should opt for Diplomatico Reserva Exc
Oddly better than pricier Appletons
Sippable, but nothing to write home about. I will not that i enjoyed this more than the pricier “rare”. If in Jamaica, this is widely available at m
Not bad for a island generic. Very sippable on a hot day. Versatile because you can mix or sip.
Don’t bother sipping this. Strictly a mixer, but admittedly a good mixer.
Just a mixer
This did not meet expectations. Lacked any smoothness and the burn drowned out any flavor the rum might have had.
4 is generous
This is a mixer, not a sipper. Calling this xo is an insult to other runs.
Never given a 1 until now
This is absolutely swill. It should be a great mixer or ok sipper based on price. But this isn’t even worth mixing. This is the most terrible rum I
