Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Since I have Don Pancho's Cana Brava 3 Year old White Rum rated at an 8, being the best white rum that I have ever tried, this Selva Rey White almost makes it to my rating of an 8. Don Pancho may have even used his own Cana Brava in this blend for all I know.
The company searched for two years to find the right distiller who could produce a white rum that can be enjoyed on the rocks. Mission accomplished, but it is also a great mixer as can be found by the many recipes on their website.
Update October 2, 2018: I bought another bottle and also opened my last bottle of Cana Brava 3 Year white rum that I had been hoarding because it is so hard to get. It was time for a side by side neat taste test in Glencairn glasses. There is definitely some of the Cana Brava 3 in this Selvarey! However, the Selvarey has more subdued flavors whereas the Cana Brava flavors are strong enough to be in your face. I suggest to keep both on hand so that either one can suit whatever mood you happen to be in.
Wasnt expecting much from this one
Found it on clearence never had herd of it before but glad I bought
it bought for mixer but its good straight also.
Neat, this is just a mess of ethanol, but I've had it in a few cocktails, and it was enjoyable. Sadly, nothing to go "ape" about.
This is a really nice white rum. Smells and tastes of vanilla, powdered sugar, sugar cane, marshmallow, and a light peppery spice. Solid for a white rum, though I've rated a few even better as of this review (Banks 5-Island, Vizcaya Cristal, and Diplomatico Blanco).
ok, so it's not as X rated in terms of it "shouldn't be legal" like the Cacao one is, but this is unequivocably, the smoothest, cleanest white rum you've ever had. it's unreal. it's amazing. ah mayy zzing neat. NEAT. WARM RUM HAS NEVER BEEN SO UNHOLY AND WONDERFUL. it's that good. it literally puts every other rum you own to shame and you should throw them out of your cupboard. and you should feel proud about that. seriously, go high five a stranger, you're doing amazing things. drink this rum. it's clean, crisp. smooth. IT DOESNT BURN. no harshness, brah. it finishes on the palate in a cleansing manner, not a "oh golly, i shouldnt have done that" manner.
