Outstanding bang for buck. This 8 year old rum is easily sipped. Very well balanced. Smooth and not too sweet but not terribly complex. Great for every day sipping. I prefer to all other rums sourced in Nicaragua. This is the youngest rum that I enjoy sipping straight up.
That's really about it. There are other flavors there but they are overwhelmed by what tastes like a lot of added sweetness. This could possibly have been a good rum, what I can discern through the cloying sweetness reminds me of the subtle dry flavor of Flor de Cana 7 year. For the price there are so many others that are better.
