Cool Vanilla Beans
Vanilla, then caramel, then oak in a smooth rum with a mild bite. My favorite of this genre and one of my first reaches to sip neat.

A very nice rum
Neat it has a very light burn with very nice aromas of butterscotch, a little leather and pepper spice. I enjoyed at a local premium bar at a premium
For $30 less I like it
Found on sale for $71. bottled in 2015. It takes a while sipping to tease out the complexity. Traces of fig, honey, dark sugar (without being to swee
118 reasons to like!
WOW. How 118 proof is as smooth as it is, is beyond me. Spicy. Hint of vanilla and chocolate. Worthy for my bar.
1703 Old Cask
Remember what it is not
Not sugared. The sweet is is is the age. So the flavors are long lasting and the finish is fat. Others tasting notes describe the profile. I respect
I can appreciate. WOW
If I were a coffee drinker it would be perfect. Thus the 9. Neat: Wonderful vanilla toffee with hint of cinnamon. Some butterscotch. A hint of coffe
Insolent vs. Perpetual
Both shine in their genre. Insolent a touch of maple, Perpetual drier with dried fruit/vanilla. If you go back and forth you can decide which way you
Aged for the last year in sherry cask and it shows
Aroma is rich and full sherry fruit. Same taste follows with wood and dark chocolate at the back. Quite pronounced flavors. I have noticed a lot of
Foursquare right on
Foursquare Rum Distillery Empery is a blend of Pot/Column distilled rum aged for14 years in ex-bourbon casks and a portion of Pot Column distilled rum
This is remarkable. There is a harmonious flavor note you have to tease apart to find it’s components. Caramel, Oak, almonds, hint of vanilla, cacao.
Complex notes on the front end with molasses vanilla weight. Burn goes to end with whiskey like light burn. The Real is the 1 point up.
Deep mahogany color. Old oak over dark fruit followed by dark caramel and vanilla. Echoes of sherry and bourbon. Long balanced finish. Bottle number
Had both this and the Real when in Costa Rica. Both are superb but to my taste the Real won the day and was the the bottle I bought home.
If you must be infused this is it
5 years in a bourbon cask in Panama. Blended with cacao by a master blender. The bottle states: To be sipped and savored, mixed, neat or on the rocks
Ron Del Barrilito
Best Puerto Rico rum?
It has all the flavor notes and gets to third base. Molasses,some pepper oak, touch of sherry, almond/orange. Dry and no added sweetness. When in Pue
Botucal Reserva Exclusiva
It is what it is, but good
Neat: nose is molasses/vanilla. No burn. Aromatic taste as weird as that sounds. Definite chocolate notes. Vanilla. Definitely grows on you. Worth ha
Grander 12 is worth a taste
Light amber color. Allspice orange and vanilla. Hot at first then mellows to floral and aged oak. Not overly sweet. No additives but the barrel.
If you get a navy ration pray for this.
Overproof goodness. The alcohol burn is mild. You can drink it neat and feel the raw or cube or water it and the burn becomes a wisper. Airing let’s t
Splits the middle
Not to sweet but sweet. Drives down the middle. Drinking in a bar. I’m adding to my collection. More later.
Master Reserve 21
For less than $50 a really good rum for brown liquor drinkers or anyone else
First and foremost, a quality sipping rum without too much sweet or burn. Second, their is a hint of cinnamon that is interesting. Third, I agree for
Distillery Collection No1 Batch Kettle
No added sugar makes this one different
Light caramel color and taste. Burn leaves replaced by an oak char taste. Worth adding to your collection.
Flor de Cana
Has it right but missing the magic
Some what bitter molasses/vanilla notes with slight burn. OAK. I prefer Zara Master 21 for my middle of the taste road rum.
Silver Rum from Louisiana
Interesting rum in a pretty bottle. Ran into this in a Baton Rouge, Louisiana restaurant. Neat it has a fermented cane,vanilla nose and taste with a
Goes up and down
Some will not like neat but I like the flavor profile, which is dry, oaky, and slightly spicy. It has a sweetness and a caramel nose. If I was taking

Dry front, sweet middle, slow burn
Sort of like a rum, bourbon, sherry cocktail. Not unpleasant but somewhat confusing. The alcohol hides some, than finishes with a light burn. It is di

Good dry rum
Honest dry rum with light burn and honest rum flavor
Second time around not as good as I thought
In Sept. I rated an 8 and I wrote “Not sweet, no burn leaving a light vanilla nut that carries to the end note with hidden chocolate fruit. There is a
Oak Barrel Spiced
Vanilla spice mixer
Brought over by friends so don’t know price point. Not bad, with vanilla aroma and forward note. Mixed well and better than any I have tasted.
Smoke on Spice
When you want a variation. Aged in double charred American oak casks. The bite is too much for some. It does have some leather and tobacco overtones f
Lots of undertone notes; but sweet
Complexity overwritten by cognac and sweet. Allspice/vanilla is strong. Fills the mouth and nose. Like others, I like Plantation XO anniversary better
Maple sweet on sweet
Smooth maple overwhelms. Few other notes make it out. Too sweet for me. Just right for others.
If you don’t like Black Seal this will probably fit
Have used this as a mixer rum for 40 years starting back when rum fruit drinks were king and I was a teen. My recommendation is stack this as your mix
Smooth Spice but ......
As the ratings show there is a lot of differing opinion on this rum. It claims it is based on 16th century local recipes. Neat it has no burn with to

Talk about wild ratings. Love/hate. The thing for me is a few notes that taste fine but I get no depth. It’s OK but i’m not telling my friends they go

Pleasant is not enough
Nothing wrong but not enough right. Light flavor and burn. Almost no nose. Price point is high for what you get.
Very light floral nose. Light vanilla bean. So neutral not sure what to do but mix. I prefer more of everything.
I want to like it
The bottle notes say balanced blend of caramel sweetness & oak with a warm buttery finish. Some of each is in this light orange rum but it doesn’t del
Try the small bottle first
In the $16 range and a mixer for sure. Pale Anejo with no strong notes to recommend it otherwise.
