Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Great flavor, smooth, little bite. Definitely my favorite light rum I've had.
It's nice and dry, but I get quite a lot of alcohol on the nose, and very little fruit. Was mixing Daiquiris for guests, so wasn't able to let it sit and re-taste. At around $20, it's a fine white mixer—infinitely better than what is offered by the bigger brands. But I can't say it's much better than the FdC 4 Extra Dry, which is simply a better value (at least in my area).
That said, it's definitely worth a try, and if your options are limited, this is a much better choice than most, and I imagine a noticeable step-up from ED's Superior White (which I haven't tasted, and am in no hurry to).
This rum works just fine as a cocktailrum. This is for when you are making a mojito, or perhaps, if you want to do a sharp daiquiri.
Excellent mixer for classic rum cocktails and tiki drinks. Comparable to Caña Brava with a great pedigree.
I'm a big fan of this one for mixing daiquiris and other cocktails that call for a light rum. It's light and fruity and it reminds me of vanilla, bananas, coconut and other pleasant tropical flavors. Not an especially complex rum but a bargain and what it does it does very well.
Better than bacardi for your mixed drinks, good in tiki cocktails
Perfect for mixing which it was made for. So...mission accomplished :) Very smooth for a rum that young, nice hints of vanilla and coconut.
After tasting it I drank it with tonic, lemon and a sprig of thyme. It was a nice alternative for gin and tonic.
Nice white rum probably best white rum not a fan of white but I'll drink it
Great white rum for mixing. Simply love this stuff.
A nice mixer, not my favorite but good enough. Its has an easy flow didn't burn but lack the vanilla I've come to enjoy.
An okay white rum. Tastes most of coconut. Greta fornmixing
I think it is one of the best light rum I know. Great for populars rum cocktail like Pina Colada, ti punch, Cuba Libre... More taste and more smooth than most of competitive product. I believe is underestimate especially at this price.
Flavour has no trace of aging, funk, or anything at all for that matter. Maybe a faint sweetness but I'm reaching. Could have been a bad batch but gives the impression of being filtered an inch from its life.
Aged white rum with tastes of chocolate and coconut.
I needed a bottle of light rum, which I don't usually buy, for a punch. Tried it with a cola first, very average but was happy with the taste. Can't expect an over whelming flavor for a rum that's not aged very long.
Chocolatey and vanilla initial taste but then goes pretty quickly.
Barely any aftertaste (good or bad).
Exelente, intenso, lleno de sabores, uno de los mejores rones blancos que he probado.
Samler genet slog til og denne gang er vi så i den billige ende :)
Dette er så en jeg vil mikse med en god iskold Cola!
I use this for mixing drinks like Daiquiri's and Pina Colada's.
I have given this a 5 but to be fair I am not really a white rum drinker. That said I found the flavour rather harsh and not at all smooth. Mixed it with coke
I keep this on hand at all times. Sweet and yummy. Rum is my drink of choice, but I have not yet learned to review and distinguish all the nuances and subtleties. I just know what I like. And I like this one very much. I have tried nearly every El Dorado rum that I have had the opportunity to purchase. I actually like this a little better than the six year Silver. Much better than the Superior White.
Nothing really much to write about this. Great step up from the basic silvers out there, however I would probably still rate it lower than its alternatives (Havana club 3, Plantation 3). Paid 25 CAD.
Nice body for a young rum. For $14 it has a lot of bang for the buck.

This is a decent white rum, has a strong initial blast, fairly smooth going down, faint vanilla, light fruit, a bit of sugary sweetness detected in finish. Fairy cheap, sweeter, less dry, and harsher than Matusalem Platino, which I would recommend over this.
