As the ratings show, opinions vary widely regarding this rum. Personally I think it's pretty good. Not great, but pretty good nonetheless. It has an appealing deep amber color and an inviting aroma both in the bottle as well as a snifter. It has an initial sweetness when tasting and a nice butteriness. A little bit of a warm burn but the ABV is slightly less than that of typical rums. Definitely tingles the tongue. Look forward trying this in Coke Zero. A nice rum.
