Wow, Great Flavor at Excellent Price!
I have rated only 3 rums to date. Excellent deep, smooth aged taste. Great for sipping and enjoyable on the rocks. Excellent value means that this
Now This is Really Nice
Deep rich taste and color. Nice aged taste that is like an aged whiskey. Purchased at Duty Free in Cancun Airport for a pretty good deal. While not
Now That is Nice!
While in my local adult beverage supermarket, I was looking for some new rums to try. I have a champagne taste but have a beer budget. Based on revi
A Fine, Mature Rum at an Excellent Price Point
Admittedly, I am a person with a champagne taste with a beer budget. I am always searching for the best rum that I can both enjoy on the rocks while
Great Aged Taste with Unique Spices that Make it Just Right!
Found this at a local restaurant. Fantastic aged quality. Heavy spice (you can taste the anise) but does not overpower a great tasting rum. From th
Great Sipping Rum, But Pricey in US
My Favorite Rum from Puerto Rico. Great sipping rum. A bargain in Puerto Rico, but pricey in PA.
Ron Del Barrilito
Most Excellent Sipping Rums
I cut my teeth on rums while in Puerto Rico. Was in a small restaurant bar in Old San Juan and asked the bar tender for his best rum. Sold on first
A Great Aged Rum at an Excellent Value
Great aged flavor for every day. Nicely balanced and deep richness. Good for sipping on the rocks. Very good price. Not a 9, but a solid 8
Really Nice, But Incremental
Thanks to RL Seale and Foursquare for a broad range of excellent rums! More mature than the 8-year with deep rich flavor. I prefer rums bordering on
Good, but There are so Many Other Finer Choices
I really like this rum but there are so many other choices that are finer (more aged) taste; Foursqaure/RL Seale come to mind.
More Tasty, From a Great Brand!
Cruzan and RL Seale (Foursquare) have always been my favorite brands due to taste, consistency and price. Cruzan Single barrel hits the mark with its
Pleasant Surprise. Nice, Almost a 9!
I was wary of this at first thinking that the label was cool but less than sophisticated. Great “anejo” taste and aged to the point of a good taste o
Son of Gran Anejo, Great Value
Don Q Gran Anejo (DQGA) is one of my top rums ever. Don Q Anejo (son of DQGA) has a similar “Anejo” taste but is clearly less “anejo”, that is, aged.

Jonahs Curse had been my favorite to date (I am price conscious) until this rum. Gosling’s is good but not as good a value. The Cruzan brand has alwa
Smoother than Kraken, Has Become May Favorite Dark Rum
Back to back bottles of Kraken (formerly my favorite) and then Goslings. Kraken is good on the rocks but heavier in retrospect. Gosling's is about t

Went to a “Rum” restaurant tonight. Much better aged flavor then two major brands I also tried. There is a lot of overpriced stuff that cannot compa
Great Value and a Good Sipper!
Agree with the other posters that this is a good sipping rum, especially for the price. A little sweet and not as mature and complex as some others t
Very Tasty, Almost to Perfeccion
I was about to restock my shelf with a Doorly’s 8 year but was persuaded to try this fine rum. I am sipping kind of person and like mature almost age
Local Distilleries Crafting Quality Rums
Appears that we need to watch for local distillers for the are crafting some quality beverages. This is the second Pennsylvania rum I have enjoyed.
Flor de Cana
Better than its younger sibling (aged 7) but not worth nearly 2x the price
I have had the luxury of tasting some excellent rums while on vacation in Mexico and other places in the Caribbean. At our most recent visit to a 5 s
Flor de Cana
Good, Pleasant Taste but try the 7-year for the Value
We purchased this in the Cancun duty free last year. I enjoy sipping aged rums for their complexity and am a fan of aged "Anejos" (redundant I know).
One of My Favorite Black Spiced Rums
Great on the rocks. Good taste but, a little over powering so should only be sipped occasionally.
Flor de Cana
Good Aged Rum, Favorite on Vacation
I am a big rum fan and like to taste available rums when we have vacationed in Mexico All-inclusives these past years. This is my favorite "top-shelf
Really Nice, Especially for the Price
Nice aged flavor with deep caramel undertones. When I say aged I mean with tastes closer to aged scotch. Easy to drink on the rocks, will remain in
Black Gold Special Reserve
Best Black Rum So Far
Deep dark taste. As good or better than Goslings. Nice to sip on ice. However, prefer other "aged" or "Anejo" rums
Good Rum from a Consistently Excellent Rum Maker
RL Seale/Foursquare continues to come up with consistently excellent rums, Old Brigand being pretty good. Unfortunately there are better rums in thei

More Overrated Stuff from Bacardi
Deep flavor but not aged. Ok on the rocks but only as a standby
Good, But Does Not Stand Out
Nice and light over ice. More vanilla than spice. Not aged since I prefer aged rums. Much better than most Black Spiced rums which are either too he
Disappointed After Liking Select, Closer to a 6
After trying Bayou Select (an 8 plus) I was disappointed by this ok rum overpowered by the taste of sweet cherry. I prefer spiced rums like Foursquar
Good Flavor, Other Choices Better Value.
Deep, rich, aged flavor but there are excellent alternatives at same price or a few dollars more.

Great Brand, a Little Light on Taste
When in Riviera Maya, FdC is a major a major brand offered by 4-5 star all-inclusives. FdC 7 is awesome as a go to, daily favorite. FdC 12-year is “s
Too Light on “Age” and Taste, Costly
I saw this in a drinking establishment and after reading the reviews thought I’d give it a try. The pour was generous but not worth the price. While
Nice and light
Nice and light on the rocks. Good value. Hint of Caramel I was thinking Kahlua. A decent rum but there is so little time. Won't be in my cabinet
Wow, interesting. Sweet but much less heavy than “the K”and Jonahs Curse (my favorite until now). Great on the rocks, probably pretty good as a mixe
Good Rum on the Rocks and a Good Value, but There are Better Sipping Alternatives
Thanks to Total Wine in DE for the amazing selection of rums. This is an interesting complex rum that has some nice dark flavors. I would give it a 7
Kirk and Sweeney
No Richness,not Impressed
Had this on the rocks. Mild flavor but no richness. Not bad but not a good value and there are plenty of better sipping rums as a much better price.
Good But not a Good Value
Had a glass of this neat and was hoping to be wowed, especially for the price. A decent taste but not great. Looks pretty in the glass, deep color b
A Very Nice Dark Spiced Rum
A Very Nice Dark Spiced Rum, better than my favorite Jonas Curse. I like many of the comments about the “age” question. That is, is this rum really
Strong Alcohol Taste without the Age

Deep Flavor, Not as Mature as Hoped
Bought this at my go to spirit shop based on the rating (a 90 pts) and the price. Deep flavor (hint of spice) with vanilla as main highlight but not
Nice Aged Rum, But a Little Light for Sipping
Good aged rum taste. Excellent value but I like a more mature composition than this rum provides. It appears that there is a divide among my Rum coll
Good but not Great
Let me be fair, I was drinking this along side of Flor de Cana 12. The taste was good but not memorable. I enjoy strong, bold rums that border on fi
Good but Light
On the rocks this rum is light. To be fair, I need to try more before saying that this brand is over-rated like Captain Morgan.
Great Dark Flavor, Good Value
Great dark flavor, better than the Kraken but not as good as Goslings. Although anyone on a budget should choose Jonahs Curse over either two.
The Brand is 2nd Place Behind Flor de Cana
Speaking of the Brand. We have been to Mexico 3 years in a row and Matusalem, as a brand, is often offered at the all-inclusive bars. Much better, on
Cruzan, Best Brand…For The Price!
Really like Cruzan 9, especially for the price. I was looking forward to trying a new Cruzan rum that I can sip on the rocks. Good aged rum for the p
Ok, But Over Priced
Not over spiced with a taste of vanilla like many reviewers have stated. Not a bad sipping rum (on the rocks) but pricey on a beer budget.
Good Rum, Great Price if Purchased in Duty Free
Purchased in Duty Free when there was a promotion. Good sipping rum on the rocks. Agree with many comments about the taste.
Great On Vacation
Readily available at all-inclusives in Mexico. Great on the rocks. One of the only decent Bacardi's which I think is an over hyped brand.
Clean and Best Cold
Will satisfy in a pinch and best on the rocks. Clean flavor for those who want non-flavored rum taste.
Good Rum Taste, Not Over Spiced
I have champagne taste but a beer budget. Only drink rum on the rocks with the exception of top-shelf rums. Cruzan 9 has a good (not great) rum tast
First Taste was the Best
I really like their beers. I sampled this rum at my favorite establishment and had to bring back a bottle because it was fairly good and interesting i
Sippable at a Decent Price
Nice light spice above good rum/alcohol taste. Decent price. Unfortunately there are better tasting/quality rums at the same price point.
Tasty but not Mature
Strong flavors but not complex like many aged rums. I also like the strong alcohol taste but it is not mature (ie aged Scotch) or “anejo” like many o
Prefer the Doorly’s 8
I really like the Seale rums having tried Doorly’s 8 and RL Seale. I thought I’d try something new from Seale. I agree with many other reviewers tha
A Little Sweet, but not too bad. Good Value
I enjoy rum on the rocks only. This has good vanilla flavor and just slightly sweet. Much better than many Value spiced rums, although Cruzan 9 spic
Underwhelming, Not Aged and Cherry Note
Bought this at "duty free" in Cancun airport. So far, the Ron Zacapa brand has been un-impressive. This rum is underwhelming with a very light "aged
Only Good in Rum Cake
Bacardi and Cap Mor are the most over-hyped brands in the rum world (in my humble opinion). That said, to make an excellent rum cake my wife would onl
Light on Taste
Light, almost tastes like watered down vodka. No rum taste when tried on the rocks.
Tasty and Great Value
Not a bad rum, especially for the price. Strong alcohol (but not "rum") taste. A little sweet.
Pretty Good, But Have Become a Rum Snob…Sorry!
Pretty Good for sipping on the rocks in the summer but I have, admittedly, become a rum snob so have moved on…Sorry!
"Easily consumable in a bind" is being kind
"Easily consumable in a bind" is apt if you drink it as a mix. When we were in Mexico in Sept 2016, the bartender questioned whether I really wanted
Ok in a Pinch
I disagree with many that this is really bad. I like the "pure alcohol" taste with a "spice" flavor. Was on sale and I was on a budget. Ok in a pin
Original Spiced Gold
Over Hyped, Over Priced
Much better alternatives. Don't shop by a brand. If you do, you are missing some good stuff at a better price.
I have tasted a lot of spiced rums and there are much better alternatives. Bacardi, for the most part, is an over hyped brand.
Avoid All Rums With Capitan/Captain in It's Name
Nothing about this is "anejo" because any other flavor is overpowered by cherry.
There are better Coconut Rums for Decent Price
More like a liqueur than a flavored rum. Not bad, but way too sweet and coconut when tasted on the rocks. It may be good in something but not worth
Light and Fruity
I bought a "sampler" bottle. When poured over ice, how I like my rums, it is light and fruity. There are much better rums (e.g. Cruzan) at the same
More Hat and Less Cattle
It is an ok aged rum, but when placed next to others of the same vintage (e.g. Flor De Cana 7) there is no comparison. Over-hyped in my opinion. Even
If You Like the Taste of Medicine
Like others, I thought because of the label and the name, this would taste like a less expensive (I am currently on a budget) Kraken. Very strong med
