Great for rum and coke but can't say I've ever drink it straight. May try it some day.

being Scottish I had to try o.v.d it does have a strong smokey taste but is nice to drink.

A nice mixer, or on the rocks, but a little harsh and indistinct neat. I think as a demerara rum, it works well in cocktails too. A good one to have on the shelf!

Its very nice but when revisited the "cold coffee" tastes becomes a bit cloying

The first thing you notice when pouring a glass of Old Vatted Demerara rum is the amazingly deep dark color. Only the Black Tot color surpasses the OVD color, its that deep! The OVD is very mellow to the nose. Biggest disappointment is the taste. Its exactly like someone left a coffee cup steaming on the table, went to bed and drank the stake and cold coffee the next morning. OVD rum is very easy to find in UK and Scotland and comes off from most liquor stores for less than 20 quid.

Lehká, kávově kakaová vůně. Chuť opět jasná kávová stopa. Neštípe a celkově to není špatné.

Very rich chocolate flavours, OK to have one but would get sickly after that

Great rum for the money. Clean taste that doesnt excite you, nor bores you.

My first rum 30 odd years ago .classic rum great in coke guaranteed to get in most pubs.nothing fancy , old favourite

Not as rich as Wood's but I'd prefere it to the Skipper's. As mentioned by Eigon, it could be a bit stronger which maybe would give it some more profile. But it is a good smoky Demerara with molasses and full aroma. Very good in cocktails, medium sipper...

This is a very dark rum, and has a nice smooth taste it. You can get a real Demerara taste. I found this on Amazon only £15, so an excellent bargain.
Would recommend

Probably could be a 4, but as it is easy and soft, it is OK at best. Too treacly, too unsophisticated, too expensive for what it is, too short (flavour).I don't particularly like rum mixed, but am sure that this would make a good mixer. But it is soft and easy and inoffensive (damning with faint praise).

Nothing special for the price of it... Lacks in flavour and any quality

This is another good dark rum that wont break the bank. Very rich in treacle and caramel with a nice balanced smokey/sweetness. Great with cola, ginger, but if I was to choose which to dark rum to drink straight I would usually choose Wood's or Skipper, though overall not a bad dark rum.

Lovely stuff. What I usually go for. Smoky taste full of molasses, brown sugar and treacle. Lovely neat but best with cola.

A bit thin and volatile when drunk straight up or on ice. Best served with cola. About as good as Bacardi is to white rums.

Wiederum ein sehr schöner Rum um bei der Cocktailrunde mal einen anderen Rum aus dem Hut zu ziehen.
