Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I really enjoyed this rum. Not as good as some of the top black rums I've tried, such as the Kraken, Punta Cana Black, or the Lemon Hart Blackpool Spiced, but it's definitely better than most black rums I've tried.
It has a nice sweetness to it, which I enjoy. Smells and tastes of chocolate, vanilla, spice, charred oak, and marshmallow.
Not a bad rum at all, though at this price point ($29.99, 2018 price), I'd go with the Kraken, which is slightly better (to me) and a bit less expensive.
I had a high expectation on the Vizcaya Black Rum after liking their VXOP 21 for years, but this one is a long ways from the 8 rating I granted for the more matured one. Vizcaya Black Rum is a very mediocre rum in isolation, but compared to the older sibling, it is very unmature and has an over powering sweetness to it plus a burn at the end which the 21 year does not have. Mix this one with Coke, and it's okay, but still not great.
