Possible the softess spirit I have come across. Reminiscent of the 21 year but more balance. The add time in the cask has dual up the oak and down the
The best value in the rum world
It is flavorful, full bodied, with just the right amount of sweetness. It is similar to brugal 1888. Maybe a slight bit more sweet and less fruity bu
Kirk and Sweeney
As good as I have found
A truely great rum! Sweet but not as sweet as plantation xo or zaya. A good bit of oak but not as much as I would expect from 23 years. Well balanced
Low expectations are the key to happiness
I expected this to be a more spicy verison of Mount Gay XO. My expectations were off. Its sweet and fruity with oak coming true on the finish. The s
You can smell the age
Has a musky smell that tips off its age. More oak flavor and better balanced than the 12 and 15. Still on the sweet side. Its better than the 12 and 1
The best of the mass marketed rums
Its sweet but the sweetness isn't over the top. Good combination of brown suger, vanilla, caramel, and oak. One of the most balance rums I have found.
Kirk and Sweeney
Only beat by the 23
This maybe the 2nd best rum I have ever had. It is miles ahead of the 12 and just a little behind the 23. Nothing suprising here. It exactly what you
Master Reserve 21
This is some of the best rum I have had. It is complex with a smooth finish. My only critism is the vanilla flavor comes through more than the others
El Pasador de Oro
This is up there with kirk and sweeney 18 and 23 as far as bang for the buck. Maybe not as smooth but very balanced. The 23 borders on being over age
Good value and standard flavor
It is hard to beat a 12 yr. agricole for under $30, $26.99 to be precise. It taste like a quality spirit, with a dark color and decent finish. It's no
Port Cask Finish
What you would expect
It tastes like what you would expect. The sweetness from the port comes through early. The wine taste hits on the mid palette. The signature dry Seale
Very dark in color but it stayed balanced. Its on the dryer side of rum. Not as dry as seale's but more than most. There is nothing offputing. The oak
I try to imagine what this could be with less added suger. It has has great taste and profile. The finish is smooth but dominated by suger.
Suger dominates the profile. Its similar to Diplomatico Exclusiva with maybe a slightly better over flavor. There is some maple syrup, vanilla, oak, a
Good if you like sweet
It remind me of Zapaca 23 with a shorter finish and less balance. You get a little extra spice for the sherry aging. Good, but a little to sweet for
XO Extra Old
Not overly sweet
You can tell its an well aged high quality rum. One of the dryer rums I have tried. It is not the best i have come across but i prefer it to the overl
XO 20th Anniversary
It is a sweeter rum with its own flavor. I can taste some coconut which sets it apart. It is smooth and complex but the suger overwhelms the other fla
Good but not for the price.
It is good but not hardly any better than the 23 year solera. At less than half the price, save you money and get 2 bottles of their standard offering
Not nearly as sweet as the Reserva Exclusiva, but still seems like there is some added suger. The sherry influence is heavier than any other rum I hav
A rum for scotch drinkers
Dry, smoke, oak and full bodied. Reminds me of a Flor De Cana.
Solid rum for the price
Smooth and not overly sweet like a lot of rums. Lots of oak and Jamaican rum funk. Full bodied, thick, and flavorful. It would be a great rum if the
Not as good as the original
A good smooth rum. It is very similar to the original with extra char and ash on the finish. I prefer the regular 23 solera. This rum is an 8 but i d
Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
A little disappointed
The flavor is what I expected. The pinnaple is there but light. Its not overloaded like some spiced rums. The problem with this rum is that the base
Cinnamon and suger
Syrup on the palate and cinnamon on the finnish. Nothing off putting. One of the better quality spiced rums i have had. Up there with chairman's reser
Better than expected
I was expecting a harsher version of plantation xo. While it may have been that, it appeared darker with more influence from the oak. Still on the sw
Light color for a 7 + year old rum. Not overly complex. Nothing offensive. Pepper comes in early. The finish turns bitter and is the low point. Updat
Flor de Cana
The Islay Rum
Its not peaty but it is smoky. Not sweet at all especially for a rum. Smooth finish. When I go for a rum I prefer something a little sweeter but wit
Top of the spiced run latter
The best spiced rum I have had. You get some sweetness and some spice / cinnamon with out it tasting artificial like some. I would bet the base spir
Good but sweet
Sweet and smooth at first with some spice on the finish. Predominant flavors is maple syrup and caramel. Possibly the sweetest rum i have had. All th
It is not the smoothest. It is not as sweet as most rums, but i wouldn't call it dry either. No overwhelming flavors, maybe some banana. Its not as g

Kirk and Sweeney
No dominant flavors
It a good all around rum. By far good enough to drink neat but also light enough to make a good mixer. Not as flavorful as i would expect form a rum w
Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva
One of the more balanced rums I have tried. Not overly sweet like some rums but you can tell its a rum. It taste older than its age. Strong flavour w
Great for the price.
Smooth and balanced. A little suger and some wood but not to much of either. There is an unusual earthy taste that is hard to place.
It did not taste sweetened. Nothing offensive. Average finish. Would mix just fine. Not enough of a flavor profile to drink neat. Probably hard to jus
Ron Del Barrilito
Strong but bad
I typically like rums with a strong profile. This was the exception. It has loads of flavor but one that i didn't particularly enjory. The finish was
Reminded me of big red bubble gum. Not bad but the cinnamon is over done.
Single Estate Old Georgia
Aged about 3 years and you can tell. Not as refined as some of the older rums out there. Not horrible but definitely not worth the price.
It is what it is
Not bad for fruity drinks or cheap shots. Similar to bacardi limon with some added lime and grapefruit.
Flor de Cana
Not what I like
Dry and smoky. Not what i typically look for in a rum.
Not bad or great. Strong flavor. Reminds me a little of appleton estate reserve but not quite as good.
Reminded me of a Tennessee whiskey
I wasn't a fan of it neat. There are far better for $5 more. If i had another bottle i would probably mix with coke. It reminded me of a bourbon or Te
For the price....
I had very low expectations considering the price (750 ml + four glasses for $9.99). It really wasn't that bad. It was good either. Its definitely an
It had an unusual flavor that wasn't for me. I would rather have appleton estate reserve or pusser's navy for the same price.
Not a fan
There are better in the price range. I got an unpleasant tar taste.
Not bad for what it is.
I wouldn't drink on the rocks but if you are looking for a light tasting mixer or something cheap to take shots of it works.
Not for me
To much vanilla and suger. It may mix well but it is not a sipper.
It tasted like a young rum that had flavor added to it to make it taste more mature. Not good enough to drink straight or on the rock and if you are g
Can be mixed
Takes me back to college. Haven't had since and may not have again. Mixed ok in a cuba libre.
No reason to buy this
I can't think of any reason i would buy another bottle of this. The limon is slightly better.
