Good, but a tad too pricy
Didn't buy the bottle but found some at a tasting bar. Honey-toffee clean and no burn. Probably my favourite tasting rum however prohibitively expensi

One of my favourites
Very smooth. Rosewater and sugar notes. Very little wood. Probably the best looking bottle on my shelf too.
Very nice Cuban

Close to perfect.
Very flavourful. Warm but not a burning sensation. Very woody.

Very high quality.
My GF picked this up in Cuba a little while ago. Nose: Aniseed, sherry. Feel: Warms up nicely. Taste: Caramel, honey. Presentation: Toss up betw

Nose: A little musky. Feel: Small amount of astringency but at 46% that's OK. Smooth finish. Taste: Heavy wood. Sweet caramel. Chalky. Nice long aft

Good, but not great.
I got a bottle after having a great experience with a different single batch rum. Maybe it was because I had expectations that I found this to be a li
Super dry, delicate taste.
Great nose. Light color. This rum seams to be a great divider of opinion due to the very dry taste. I like it. (The lowest score seems to have vote
OK nose, light colour and awesome bottle. Dry lIght caramel, good spicy and nutty notes, maybe a bit of apple. Very good value for money.
Full of character.
I wasn't expecting much as this rum very much plays second fiddle to the 151 in this brand but I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this
Solid, and in my opinion, redeeming of the rum side of their brand.
I was a fair bit disappointed with the 1919 line and was a little hesitant to pick this up but everyone(/thing) deserves a second chance. Nose: Thi
Not as good as the 12, but if thats not available...
This is the next best thing. Shares a lot of good qualities with the 12 but a clear step down. Nose: Nice and funky grass and fruit. Feel: A bit
Flor de Cana
Very dry. Very good.
Nose: Not much Feel: Smooth. Almost no burn Taste: Really dry and oaky. I'm really enjoying finding this after going though some overly sweat duds.

Very solid navy strength rum.
Favourite naval strength I've tried yet. Great for Tiki drinks. Nose: Very rich. Honey and Maraschino cherry. Feel: Little Oily, followed by a sha

Nice but limited usability.
While a good overproof, at 84.5% it has limited uses other than to get people where they need to go, fast. It stays out of the way quite nice. I alway
Punches above its weight
Rich golden thick rum. Quite fragrant for a rum (sweet). Smooth, low burn and not too much of a kick. I find it has a heavy molasses-y flavour rather
Special Reserve 15-Year
Good nose, dark colour. A very flavourful rum. Molasses, oak and lime. Quite sweet. A little overbearing but very agreeable.
The good ol' go-to.
No nose. Medium colour. Light caramel and lemon. It really is a simple rum. Very smooth and easy to drink. I drink it on the rocks but most of m

Really tasty but no complexity.
So I'm 99% sure this is the rum that is now labelled the 7 year which my SO brought back from Cuba. Very smooth. Nice and sweet but with no follow-
5 Star Reserve Especiale 8-Year
Can we taken neat but works better in a cocktail.
Great as a mix to broaden the flavour range with a English or Spanish style. Sweet sugar and then grass.
Good cocktail material

Nose: Nutty Feel: Gets warmer. Not overly smooth or harsh. Can be sipped. Flavours do progress nicely. Taste: Very nutty (I would say walnut) and a
Best Cachaca you can always find on the shelf.
Best Caipirinha material right here. Nothing much more to say.
A little different. Very accessible.
Nose: Not much. Feel: A bit rough. I actually prefer this one on ice which is rare for me. It seemed to smooth it out more. Taste: Black Pepper-y an
So on the border.
This is very nicely placed rum. Nice enough to drink neat. Cheap enough to mix for friends. Nose: I had this on the rocks so the nose was subdued,
Need a little more complexity out of something in this price range.
Nose: Light caramel. Anise. Feel: Very light to start. Slightly oily. Walms up for a sweet sharp finish. Lingers slightly. Taste: Muscovado, sherry
Very strong vanilla flavour but otherwise fairly balanced spiced rum. I don't mind this with ice or in cocktails which call for a spiced rum (as long
Flor de Cana
On the border
Harsh nose. They have changed the bottle which I think is nicer now. Caramel, a little woody and fresh grapes. Really opens up with an ice cube.
The Candy of Rums
Overly sweet caramel flavour. Some spice and nutmeg. Unfortunately its completely drowned out.
Strong lemon and sweet candy taste. Goes well in mixed drinks or cola. Not for sipping.
Especial Extra Dry
I couldn't imaging sipping a white rum...
But I am. Very clean. Almost no aftertaste. No other taste but sugar but that's ok. Mixes well too.

Brings noise, funk.
I keep on hearing how Jamaican rums have a funk (In a good way). I could never really describe them as funky even though it was always in the backgrou

Really not that great.
Sure, its an OK sipper, but it is not the great Bacardi redeemer. Quite light for a aged rum, sugar, lemon, little burn, weak tail, no wood. Comple
Better than Bacardi
Sure, it's a mixing rum, but better than the alternative.
Not the worst - which is quite a lot to say about a Bacardi.
I'm no fan of Bacardi, but this had to be the best from them I have tasted (yet). It is still totally outclassed my many other products in this catego
Ok, but really standard non-interesting stuff. Nose: Very little. A touch of ethanol. Body: Oily. Fairly smooth, and not much of a kick (probably
Meh. You can do better (even though its cheap).
Given where this sits in their lineup I was expected more. Nose: Nothing really except for a little alcohol. Feel: A litte oily. Harsher, medicina
Middle of the pack.

Nothing to write home about.
Sickly sweet and no depth. It burns no via alcohol but by acidity. Ok for mixing I guess but there are far better rums at this price point (27 Canadia
A very bad example of a golden rum.

Just drink vodka.
There are almost no redeeming features of this rum. It has a chemical taste that barely make you think of rum.
Someone left some after a party
And it was as awful as I expected. I'm not going to go though my normal review process because I don't consider this rum.
Elixir de Cuba 7-Year
Should be called a flavoured rum at best.
This product is sickly sweet. Undrinkable even when combined with cola at homeopathic levels. The product is soaked in raisins. I don't consider it a
