Crisp, smooth, perfection
The initial taste almost comes off as a spiced rum, follows through to an unmistakable caramel amber finish. Hands down one of the best rums I have e

Arguably the best by my taste
Very deep oakey, yet caramel flavours blend flawlessly on the initial taste. Rich fruit flavours are complimented by a lingering smokiness on the aft

Where purely spiced rums are concerned, this is a gem. Very strong caramel flavor with a subdued, yet present and tasty spice flare in the throat to
Perhaps a bit generous of a rating, but by my preferences this is outstanding rum. Hefty tastes of banana and vanilla create a deeply tasteful and sm
The first spiced rum I've had with a notably unique flavour profile. Vanilla and standard spiced flavours accented with prominent notes of cinnamon.
Gran Reserva 12-Year
For my taste, this is great stuff.
Hefty Vanilla tones on the nose. Alarmingly smooth wash through to an oak tongue, sweet caramel finish. Subtle banana and what seems to be apricot h
Gran Reserva 15-Year
For a particular niche
If you're a fan of lighter bodied, yet deep, oaky tastes, this is imo the best dark rum/cost there is. Either poured on rocks or with a splash to 1:1
Pure taste sipper
Very rich, almost creamy foretaste ripe with sweet caramel, followed by a nougetty finish that lasts on the tongue. Very smooth and leaves you cravin
Gran Reserva 18
Similar to the 15
Much like the 15-year, this rum is remarkably smooth with very deep oakey flavors. A rich, fruity aroma welcomes the first tastes. Strangely tastefu
Tasty in its own right
By conventional rum standards, it may be a little over sweet, but who cares, it's very tasty. Hefty banana essence and a sweet vanilla finish. For a

Hinging on a 9
Lacking in depth, but very very smooth. Light banana and nouget tones on the back of the tongue. Definitely an exquisite sipper.
A tasty treat
For a long time this has been my go-to drinking rum. Good over ice which brings out more of the already present and delicious, rich sugarcane taste,
Very smooth, very oaky
Similar in taste and style to a Ron Zacapa. Hearty oak body with subtle vanilla undertones. An elegant delicacy.
Special Reserve 15-Year
Very sharp taste, smooth finish
On the first touch of your palate there is a hefty warmth, almost to the ilk of a spiced rum. Unbelievably smooth oaky flavors fill the body and wash
Sweet and spicy
Hefty spice forefront. Littered with strong pine and cinnamon essences. Smoothly transitions to a caramel maple (oh so Canadian) finish. Definitely
Super rich in caramel
The wash over the tongue lacks any distinguishing flavour, yet the secondary and lingering tastes unquestionably raise the standard of this rum. Rich
Giving a high rating for complexity
As the title implies, I'm not sure how to rate this. I'm not a white rum fan at all, prefer my darks and spiced, mostly for the notable complexity of
Solid oaky backing.
Where dark rums are concerned, this one has a complex, almost fruity forefront. Hefty notes of apple and apricot adorn the palate, quickly followed w
Tasty, something new.
Cognac overtones wash through to vanilla, nougat aftertastes. Amazingly smooth, a definite sipper. Worth the cost to a T.

Something completely different
Soft tones on the nose deceive the taster. Prominent pine and mint flavours lead the charge on an aggressive tongue. Follows with subtle vanilla und
Hefty tones of Vanilla, both on the nose and the mouth, accented with an offset almost saltiness prefacing the back of the tongue. Comes through stro
Unique chocolate taste
Carries a deep cocoa, chocolate, almost coffee flavour.
Very interesting. Toffeeish
A blast of HEFTY caramel sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Washes to a toffee finish. Notes of caramel on all levels. No other real way to descri
I've always been a believer that Bacardi was a go to for VERY light bodied, smooth tasting, but also mild-flavored, lacklustre rums. This is the firs
Very very smooth
Oaky smokey tongue, follows with a nourishingly smooth caramel body. One of the smoothest I have had. Could deserve a higher rating if not for my fi
Very sweet, smooth.
A sweet, almost tart forefront. Washes out to a fruity, banana finish. Quite tasty, blends phenomenally with just a splash of cola.
Perhaps a generous rating
A very light, very smooth amber rum. Light hints of vanilla compliment the subtle sweetness. Again, maybe generous on the rating at a 7, but I'm def
As a pure sipping rum, this is absolutely delicious. Very hefty tones of coconut and cocoa. Not much of a burn on the throat. A tasty treat.
Maybe a bit generous
Lacking in complexity, but definitely a certifiably tasty spiced rum. Very deep, dark caramel flavors with a hefty mid-range flare.
Potent first taste ripe with alcohol infused sugar. Leads to a caramel rich after taste. One of the best rums in my collection when mixed with Coke.
Like a Marshmallow
Tastes like a golden marshmallow when mixed with Coke. Not much depth as far as complexity of flavors, but definitely drinkable in a pinch. Easy to

Where spiced rums are concerned, captain is the bare bones, prototypical mixer. As a standalone rum it's a little sweet with some moderate spice, sti
Hefty tropical theme
Hearty amounts of Banana flavor on the forefront with a tasty caramel finish. Definitely a simple sipper if so inclined, functional as an easy mixer.
A smooth, tasty treat in a pinch
I was surprised at how smooth this run was, given some reviews I'd heard. Subtle citrus tastes hit on the tip of the first sip. Medium body rises to

Different but not as good
Harsh tongue leads to the familiar captain throat. Like most black rums, carries notes of strong coffee. Altogether interesting, but not a recommend

Surprisingly not bad
Strong Vanilla/caramel flavors. Hefty burn in the ilk of a poor man's spiced. Follows with a whiskey aftertaste
Very drinkable, lacks complexity
Just sat down for a quick cheap spiced at a bar, and was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of this rum. Lacks any depth or character, but is stu
Dark chocolate front
Very bitter cocoa first taste, followed by a smooth, nutty finish. Wouldn't advise for a sipping rum under any circumstance. A splash of Coke lessen
A little bland
Comes on like a freight train in the nose with a potent alcohol burn. Taste is very mellow. Subdued vanilla and virtually no burn to it. A fine mix
Agree with the responses
Nose is very light. The tongue is hardly complex in flavour. A faint caramel immediately swallowed by a nail-polish removed burn and follows with a
