Seleccion Esplendida 1985
The only 10/10 I've found.
Absolutely delicious. Vanilla, caramel, chocolate, and cigars are the major players. Tickles the tongue, no burn. Starts with an immediate hit of vani
Centenario XO Premio Platino
Ron Zacapas best product
Very smooth, rich, very little burn. The cognac casks it was finalized in gives it a unique palette for a rum. Delicious. Newer bottle.
To be enjoyed clean. Allow to breathe for a moment. The pour is a lush golden amber that doesn't cling to the glass. On the nose is vanilla and rich o
XO 20th Anniversary
A home run by Plantation
They've outdone themselves here. A mostly pure rum with a little coconut intervention. Caramel, oak, bourbon, tobacco, banana, and vanilla. Finishes w
Family Reserve Old
Seriously good stuff
This is hands down one of the most unique, full bodied rums I've had. It's a sticky, dark pour, and has a very potent nose full of aromatics. Starts o
XO 20th Anniversary (old bottle)
Among the best you can get
The 20th Anniversary XO is a full bodied slip into heaven. I can die happily having drank this. Oak, caramel, coconut, cigars, and a hint of banana. V
Flor de Cana
Almost as good as the 25 year, better value
I keep this stocked on my bar. It's very well priced for the quality, at a quarter of the price of the 25 year. This body is a buttery vanilla, wi
An oak forest
If you like lightly sweet, oaky rum, this is for you. If you can find it, nab a bottle. Great with steak. Tastes are oak, molasses, a touch of sticky
Flor de Cana
Great rum, overpriced
Flor De Caña has a very good catalog. This is the only one I probably won't buy again because it's priced way beyond what it's worth. You get a slight
Original Dark Double Aged
Plantation strives for greatness
A sweet, oaky pleasure. Perfect for sipping, hints of banana, cherry, and Oak. This is a staple of my rum collection, I always have it on my bar.
Better than the 12
But more of the same. A bit more of the oak cask is apparent. It's got an earthy taste that doesn't overstay its welcome.
Very sweet, sticky, and smooth
It's been a mainstay on my bar for years. It's a midgrade rum both in price and quality. The reviews on here seem to be giving this way more praise th
Bumbu is the cotton candy of rum
Bumbu is a very unique flavour, bordering on liqueur. Like being punched in the face with bananas. If you like very sippable, very sweet rums, this sh
If you dump 8 sugar cubes into your coffee, you'll love this. It has so much potential, but I can't get around the added sugar. Otherwise palatable, b
A tad harsh
It's not bad. It tries to hit the mark on oak and caramel, but the flavours don't linger for long and collapse under the wildly unhidden alcohol.
Good, but spend the money on the exclusiva
They're very similar, but I feel Diplomatico Exclusiva delivers more bang for the buck. It's harsher, and had less overall body. Getting past the
This is one of the very very few rums you only buy for the bottle. Looks neat on the bar, but that's about it. It's not the worst rum out there by any
Good, but an acquired taste
It's very expensive for what it is. This is a very dark rum, and they've twisted the wording to sell it as a 23 year aged rum. It's not a true aged ru
Gran Reserva 12-Year
Nice for when a vanilla craving sets in
To the chase: starts off with a potent aroma of vanilla, rolls past the lips with vanilla, beads thinly off the tongue with vanilla, and finishes with
It's not bad
Definitely not scowl or gag worthy, but it's not making me say "Mmm"
It's the best Bacardi out there
But that's like saying you prefer to drink name brand bleach instead of no name. This doesn't hold up against almost anything out there. Minimal b
Slap all the silly labelling you want on it, it didn't sit in the cask long enough.
Bland, uninspired, unoriginal
It's rum, and it doesn't taste like gasoline, so there's not anything predominantly bad going on with it. It's just not anything special.
Pretty sure Brugal was a typo
Perhaps they meant to type "BRUTAL" on the labels and just went with it. If I ever need to chlorophorm someone in a pinch, this might work if it doesn
Brugal can't get it right
I've tried almost their entire catalog, and the reviews for most of their line are spot on. They're average. The 7.6 rating this got gave me hope. Unf
I'd buy it as a gift for someone
If I hated that person. It's chemical warfare in a bottle. Artificial spice, artificial colour, added sugar, soulless.
It's so fake that celebrities are using it as a facial scrub. All I can taste is sugar and artificial spices. Send it back to the abyss from whence it
Overall uninspired flavors
It beats the bottom shelf swill out there by a couple of points, but the money is better spent elsewhere. You're paying for the packaging.
Brugal hasn't impressed me yet
This rum is a step up from Captain Morgan's. Unfortunately, Captain Morgan's is what I use to unclog my shower drain. I might use this to strip the pa
The coke jumped out of the glass
Awful. A dumb frat boy's drunken wet dream. If you're GPA is 1.1 and you're trying to drown the pain of your latest D grade, bottoms up. If you're int
Can't recycle the bottle
A hazmat team was required to dispose of the bottle after I poured it down the drain. Irrigation needs to be replaced. Killed the local fish populatio
Gasoline would be insulted
First, if you open the bottle within a 6 kilometer radius of someone with a nut allergy you'll cause them to go into anaphylactic shock. You'll be doi
Good for molotov cocktails
Not suitable for consumption. Has a Ph of -12. Pure acid.
Original Spiced Gold
I poured it into a glass and it lit the ice on fire. Awful.
Varnish is smoother
I think 151 was accidentally mistaken as proof, when it's actually an octane rating. Pure jet fuel.
Oh dear lord, no
I'd list the flavours, but it's a short list... Fine: Poison Alcohol
Even mixers can't make the gasoline fumes dissipate
If you're a frat boy looking to get drunk cheap, feel free to purge this into the toilet it belongs in at the end of the night.
Don't waste your money
Obviously not fit for consumption. Using it as a car parts solvent now and it's doing a half decent job. Unfortunately, the parts will need some time
