Special Reserve 15-Year
Perfect for drinking on the rocks. Strong start with a full flavorful middle. Not too much linger, so it keeps you wanting more. A bit of a one-not
Dark and yummy
This is easily my favorite rum. It's delightfully dark, has a little bit of a kick, and goes great with Diet Coke and a lime. Spicy, molasses-y, yet
A new favorite
Tried alone, it's a bit harsh on the alcohol/heat, but it mixes like a dream. Very balanced, good vanilla notes, as well as cinnamon and other spices.
2002 Single Vintage
Oh man so good
No bite, so smooth. Caramel and dulce de leche notes.
Excellent choice for a sipping rum - perfect with 1 or 2 ice cubes. Flavorful and strong, without much of an alcohol bite.
Hearty and delicious
A bit of a bite at the first sip, but very smooth finish. Has a whiskey vibe to it, likely due to the 8 year cask aging. I was initially surprised t
Wow, great flavor!
This rum is really different than any other rums I've had. It's not really dark or light enough to go with cola (for example, either Kraken or Bacard
Kirk and Sweeney
Smooth and powerful
This rum starts out very smooth, but builds over time. It has a very long middle, but doesn't linger too much at the end. Definitely has a bourbon vib
Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva
Smooth with a long finish
Love the aged smell of this rum. Starts off with a sharp bite, but smooths out quickly. Flavor stays in your mouth for a looooong time. Perfect for si
Balanced and flavorful
First smell is a bit strong on the alcohol, but it goes away pretty quickly. Lots of flavor and super balanced - no one note stands out. It's definite
Kraken, but not dark
Has all the fantastic aspects of Kraken (smooth, well balanced, strong), but without the spice. Great step up from Bacardi.
So smooth. Subtle notes of vanilla and caramel. No burn at all.
Sweet on the nose, some apple and caramel notes. Well rounded with a bit of heat.
Smith and Cross
Surprisingly smooth for such a high proof
Sweet, honey notes, very smooth, no bite. I had it with diet coke, but I'd be curious to try this on the rocks as well.
Clean and crisp
Love it when bars have this as their rail rum. Very clean, not a ton of flavor, but that makes it a great mixer. Crisp, almost floral, and very smoot
Sweet and smooth
Tart flavor with a long finish. The notes on the bottle indicates hints of apple pie, which I can sort of taste. In the right cocktail, the apple pi
Light and delightful
Even though this is a spiced rum, it's fairly light. Definitely very smooth and has plenty of flavor. The oak is there, but not overpowering. Good
Flavorful and delicious
If you love Kraken, but can't get it at your local store, see if you can find the Captain Morgan Black. It's full-flavored, dark, with a little bit o
Bright and delicious
While Kilo Kai is a spice rum, it's not super dark. It's almost fruity and would be great in tropical mixed drinks. Very bright with some cinnamon a
Smooth, light, and fruity
Most Cruzan rums are just delightful and this is no exception. The 9 Spiced Rum is a bright, fruity rum that goes well in either cocktails or with so
Pretty much all the flavors of Cruzan are wonderful, but this is a great rarer flavor. Goes with any fruit drinks and adds a delicious splash of fun.
Tastes Like Trix
And not in a bad way. It's advertised as a shot (which it does very well at), but I found that it is excellent with ginger ale. It's not a red fruit s
Tastes like a Jamaican rum
Smooth, good flavor, no tobacco notes at all. No alcohol burn. Tastes like a Jamaican style rum.
Flor de Cana
Anejo Oro 4-Year
Smooth, even flavor. Caribbean style, which is not my personal favorite, but this was enjoyable. Great value.
Blue Chair Bay
Key Lime Rum Cream
Found this in one of the little tiny bottles and I was surprised at how delicious it was. Tasted just like key lime pie. Not sure how best to consume
Dark and strong
Thicker than most rums, stays with you for awhile. Dark, almost chocolately flavor. Medium smooth, full mouth feel.
Smooth and delicious
Only a bit sharp at the beginning, but smooths out. Notes of vanilla and cinnamon.
Delicious spin on a spiced cocktail
This is not your traditional spiced rum. Definitely notes of cinnamon and vanilla. Absolutely wonderful as a Cuba libre. Very smooth, almost no bite.
Barbados Grande Reserve
Super smooth, no bite, lots of honey notes. Sweet, but not too sweet. Wish it was a little more complex. Would be great in fruity drinks.
Smooth and sweet
Well-rounded and flavorful. Not to alcohol-y. Spices are fairly mild. Definite caramel notes, but found it to be too sweet. I tried it with diet cok
Old New Orleans
Not too bad :)
Quite a bit of an alcohol taste, but smooths out with coke. Good oak flavors, vanilla, spices. Taste does not linger at all.
Very serviceable, but not fantastic
This rum has plenty of flavor, but it's not super balanced. I keep thinking that if there was something else, it would be more well rounded. It's sh
Smooth and clean
Nothing too fancy here. Smooth, easy going flavor with not a lot of bite. Great value!
Plain, easy to get, not terrible
Nothing wrong with Bacardi. It's an easy staple at almost every bar, so if you're looking for something other than rail, it's a good bet. Nothing fa
Straightforward Middle of the Road
Nothing too special about this rum, but it has plenty of natural flavor. Little bit of vanilla and caramel, but not too strong. Agreeable to most pala
Classic rhum agricole
Okay, almost whiskey like, not too sweet. A bit one note and not exactly my style, but do not regret purchasing.
Sharp, but flavorful
Vanilla and cinnamon notes, bit of caramel. Flavor is great, but super sharp at first. Smooths out as the drink goes on.
Sharp, not a ton going on
Smooths out when mixed, but starts out sharp. Not a ton of distinct flavors, but can catch some hints of honey and vanilla.
Cheap but flavorful
Sailor Jerry is a great cheap rum which still has a bunch of flavor. Fairly spicy, but still has a bit of a lighter fluid feel. Not bad if all you're
A bit one-note
Not a whole lot going on in this rum, but still enjoyable.
Definitely has a lot going on. I didn't get as much of the tobacco flavor as others had mentioned, but I've never smoked, so maybe I didn't know what
Not a Kraken clone
I got this thinking it would be a good Kraken substitute, but it turns out this is much different. It's got way more "red fruit" flavor and tastes be
Spicy and flavorful
A little harsh, but not too bad. Lots of spice, some toffee notes.
Good with ginger ale
By itself, this rum is fairly plain, tasting and smelling mostly of just alcohol. I happened to have some ginger ale on hand, so I tried that instead
Good effort, needs some refinement
I got this as a gift for Christmas, which was a lot of fun. Always good times trying a new rum. This particular rum had a real strong alcohol bite to
Tastes like pure fire
On the rocks tastes like nothing but alcohol. Almost no flavor, which is not what I expected from a non-white rum. Very fire-y. So-so with cola.
Way too molasses-y and not well rounded. Leaves a kind of sticky residue in your mouth. Good dark fruit flavor though. Will not buy again.
Way too sweet
All I could taste was sweet sweet sweet. Had some interesting floral notes, which was intriguing, but I just could not get past the sweetness. Would p
Not great, but it'll do the trick
Harsh, not much flavor. Would work okay in tropical drinks.
Why did I get this exactly?
After a bad experience with Gosling's, I am not really sure why I thought this would be any good. I like Cruzan rums in general, but the "black strap
Blue Chair Bay
Zero flavor, very long alcohol burn. Might be okay in a frozen daiquiri or something, but otherwise avoid this rum.
Kind of gross.
Found a rum in Hungary I hadn't tried. Do not recommend, however. Syrupy, sweet. Brown sugar, medicinal. Similar to a Jamaican rum.
Bones dark aged rum
This is bad
So much alcohol flavor, no real flavor. Smells terrible, only tolerable with lots of Diet Coke.
Gross - super syrupy
I'm pretty okay with drinking rail rum in a pinch, but this rum is pretty bad. It's really syrupy and super fake tasting. No real flavor of it's own.
