The smell of this rum is like toffee. It is very nice at every sip. The taste is not too sweet and you can enjoy the very light oak taste. Refreshing!

Gran Anejo Guatemala & Belize

Raleigh Sweet Dark
It's name says it. It has a nice dark colour and it is so sweet. A little oaky but there must be sugar added.
Sweet Appleton taste. It stings a little when sipping. Perfect with a bit of Sprite.
As good as any regular rum. Light smell. A bit stingy but light taste. To me it is as good as any regular rum. I love rum so it’s a pretty good produc
Smooth at the start and simply rum finish. Not spiced not sugary just rum with a bit of sting. Nice colour and bottle. Good to mix.
It's all about the bottle. The rum is not as bad as you would expect thought. Harsh finish. It's ok with sprite or for drinks on Halloween.

This rum is your standard for drinks. Sipping is a bit harsh. With Sprite it is sweet with a sweet finish. It is cheap enough for a Party rum.

Bacardi is not for me.
With its dark colour I was expecting a more pronounced taste. It smells a bit the oak drum but has a medicine like after taste. It's good for mixing.
As far as rum goes, this rum is more of a punch. It has more taste than a traditional ti-ponch (sugar sweet) because of the mango and piña. It is ok t

Flor de Cana
Not what I was hoping for.
For an aged rum, it still remains a bit of the hay taste of typical agricultural rums. Not to my liking. The bottle is classy.
This rum is only good in drinks where the extra vanilla taste is not detrimental to the drink. The vanilla is too much.
Not a colourful flavour
The bottle is nice. The smell is of alcohol. No specific smell. The taste is neutral. No spice and not specificity. Unusual for Dominican rums. It is
Ok agricultural rum
Smell of tobacco. The hay taste is not too present. The finish is tobacco and sweet. It's better mixed with soda.
Elixir De Ron
Not the best flavoured rum
Mulata Elixir de Ron Smells a little like tobacco. It has a amber colour. The taste is very sweet but hard to describe. This sweetness is it cherry?

Not very good
I’ve had worst Bacardi rum. I was expecting more from this one. Still not a very good rum. I come to the conclusion that Bacardi rums are not for me.
El Ron Prohibido
This rum is not sweet. No caramel taste nor is it oaky. It masters only bitterness which is hardly diminished with soda..
Too much vanilla
It looks like rum but it smells and tastes vanilla. Too much vanilla for sipping. The vanilla takes over your mouth. I would only have it for sweet dr
This is not a Cuban rum
This rum is called Havana Club but it is not Cuban. It's Puerto Rican !!! They are stealing the name. It has no special taste nor smell. At best coul
Nothing elegant about the rum itself. I found it harsh without significance nor specific traits.
Cherry to mix
No character. I think it was designed for drinks. With Sprite you can tastes the cherry flavour. It makes an ok drink.
Harsh on the tongue
This rum has little character. It's a bit harsh on the sides of the mouth. Not a general bad taste but nothing special. It is ok to mix.

The Leatherback rum at 57% alcohol has a nice amber colour. The taste has nothing fancy. It smells like Home Depot. It is ok mixed with soda.

Daufuskie Island rum gold edition has a light golden colour. The taste is not harsh but has a strong agricultural hay taste that I personally dislike.

It smells aromatic and herbal. It's white rum but with a heavy taste like rotten hay. Simply very bad for my taste. I prefer the sweetness of dark rim
One of the worst
This rum is a shame to the name. It's like a chemical liquid. I would say it should not even be used for flambés. It ruins the taste buds and the nose
