Awesome Jamaican rum. Amazing complexity and really the definition of Jamaican "funk". Some spice and plenty of octane :) Try it neat for the full
The classic Jamaican rum
This is it, classic Jamaica!! Lots of funk and a little harsh, the way rum should be. Wish it were easier to find in Texas!!
Funky pot still greatness!
This rum has that west indies funky taste in spades, I only wish I had tried it sooner!! I will definitely be keeping this one on hand permanently.
Wray & Nephew
Great Traditional Overproof
It is rare to find something that hasn't been tinkered with these days. In my opinion this is what rum is supposed to be. It doesn't necessarily len
XO 20th Anniversary
Vanilla, caramel, really fun complex taste. I tried it neat in a cognac glass and it was a bit much. In a more open whiskey glass I was really able
Royal Jamaican 10 Year
Really nice and smooth product of Jamaica, not quite as smooth as Appleton 12 year but really nice nonetheless. Complex taste, some chocolate and spi
Good coconut rum
Produced in Jamaica for that classic taste, good substitute for Malibu. Probably slightly stronger taste.
Delicious and sugary
Very sweet, but definitely in a good way :) love getting home from work and having a scuuch. Great sipping rum. Never tried it mixed with anything,
Haven't really found the dark rum of my dreams yet, but this one is the best I've had so far. Gosling's and Myers's are less interesting to me, for
Black Gold Special Reserve
Solid dark(ish) rum
I really like this one with ginger beer. Not bad on its own neat, but definitely a cut above for a nice jamaican dark(ish) rum.
Kirk and Sweeney
Good sipping rum, probably sweetened a good bit
I like this rum for sipping neat, but it is very smooth and sweet. I would be surprised if there was not added sugar. That being said, I don't mind
9-Year Port Cask Finish
Really nice rum
You can definitely taste a bit of port from the port finish. I think it adds a nice character. The bottle is pretty cool, if a bit kitschy, with wax
Was really good
A bit sweet, but with good complexity. This is an aged rum, and has a nice warmth to it. Unfortunately it was difficult to figure out where this b
Reserve du Domaine 15-Year
Excellent smooth rum
Very good rum, not overly sweet, not overly harsh. Very good to sip and enjoy the taste of Haiti. Well balanced in my opinion.
Sweet & smooth
Really nice for sipping, sweet and smooth. Another that hides the alcohol flavor a bit, if you like that you'll love this rum. Good complexity and
Gran Reserva 12-Year
Sweet, great for sipping
This is a really sweet rum, IMO great for drinking neat. Certainly on the fruity side, with not much bite. The rum flavor is a bit hidden, so depend
I admittedly don't have much experience with spiced rum but this one is nice. I think I detect some cinnamon? Maybe this is the new fireball ;) T
Estate Diamond Light
Really nice light
Really like this rum, way better than Bacardi for me. Great for all your mixers. Most light rums are young, this one is a little more interesting.
Not really designed to be sipped neat, mixes great though. Very good value, made and bottled in Jamaica. I'll take it over Bacardi any day.
Great for mixing
This is a really good smoth rum for rum punch or any fruity drink. A bit strong on it's own, but nonetheless the quintessential Jamaican dark.
Rare Blend 12-Year
Really nice smooth rum, with plenty of complexity too. Great value especially if you want to drink it neat.
Cruzan 151 proof aged rum
Packs a powerful punch, made in St. Croix. Forget Bacardi this is better.
No Bacardi fan but this is not terrible
This is really not terrible IMO. Even neat it has a decent molasses flavor to it, and it goes great with Ginger beer. Glad I gave it a chance.
Not bad for Canada eh?
Surprisingly good! Has a unique taste, probably a little tough for most to appreciate neat, but I went through the bottle in about a week so it can't
Decent rum, nothing to write home about. Has a nice west indies pot still taste to it. Bottle says aged 5 years, perhaps a bit more aging might brin
Great Jamaican Rum
I prefer the 12 year "rare blend" but this one is very good as well. Authentic taste of the islands, you can usually request it at the all-inclusive
Rebranded Appleton Special
No idea why Appleton Special renamed to this. Standard Jamaica rum, got that funk and probably not a sipper. Still an authentic Jamaica rum. Ya mon
This rum is decent, although it didn't seem to have much sweetness, and reminded me more of a bourbon than a rum.
Not as good as I hoped
My sample is old and appears to actually be from Cuba. However, the taste was good but not great, I think my expectations were a bit high for this ru
5 Star Reserve Especiale 8-Year
Good Haitian rum
I found this Haitian rum to be good, but not great. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, and this fell a bit short. However still a nice rum over
I like this one even neat, for sipping, but of course it is great in mixes, worth every penny
This is what I would consider to be standard rum. Made in Jamaica, a little bitter by itself, mixes great.
Estate Diamond Dark
Very nice, not super smooth
You'll still know you're drinking rum, but this has a really nice flavor, smokey and bitter. Good stuff.
5 Estate Diamond
Both Light and Dark available in 5 year Estate Diamond
Light Cruzan 5 year is like a more interesting Bacardi, nice and light. Dark 5 year is really good, compares favorably to Appleton.
Nice Mexican rum?
This rum was surprisingly drinkable to me. Couldn't find any info on it, and Mexico not exactly known for rum :) So I figured what the heck. Didn't
Not really rum
This stuff is ok, especially for those cold-weather sugary drinks. But let's be honest, this is not really rum.
Great for mixing with fruit juice, soda, etc. Not very strong, if you don't like to taste the alcohol in your drinks this is for you
Made in Austin TX
I feel like this rum should be better, but when the ad says "We use only Texas molasses" I get a little skeptical. This rum tasted alot like a whilsk
Strong as they come, uninteresting
Comparing this with Cruzan aged 151, it has the same belt and burn, but this one lacks any actual interesting flavor. Granted the Cruzan is aged, so p
This is not sweet, not complex, not smooth. I suppose if you added enough fruit juice you could get it down.
But there's not much else you can say about it. Found at every bar ever, unfortunately.
