Finally it's here.
Needs time in the glass as it gently wakes up. I'm not qualified to discuss this rum properly, I only know I've found a special rum. I poured myself a
This is an alcohol soaked Alex Ferguson screaming in your face and blowing your hair back. I had 3 different bottles arrive today and for some reas
10/10 in value for money!
This beats any other rum I've tried in this price range. Mount Gay Eclipse, Havanas, Sailor Jerry, Kraken, Captain Morgan, Red Leg are all second
last of 5 but not least - Like Cognac!
Have to say I'm impressed with this one. It's almost like cognac. Slight smokiness about it, prefer it to the smell of ED12 but can't pick much out, I
One of the best
Being the first fine rum I tried I had nothing to compare it against, only Mount Gay Ecplise! After getting to kknow a few more rums I began to apprec
Loved this rum to begin with. By the time I'd bought my 4th bottle I'd learned more about non sugared rums and I realised how heavily sweetened this w
I'm new to this so beginner's review only!
Such a completely different drink to ED12. Strong smell of apples, same colour as apple juice, light and crispy, fresh and can taste apples also. This
Dark and mysterious!
Dark mahogany colour and lovely thick legs here. In the same league as DRE, ED 12 and Ron Millonario, just a slight bit more of a burn which isn't a n
XO Extra Old
I reviewed this too soon into my rum research days where I didn't appreciate non sugared rums as much as I should have,. I'll need another bottle now
Flor de Cana
Been meaning to try this and finally got around to it. I'd say MGXO and Appleton 12 were slightly better but it's the same kind of rum, good flavour a
Family Reserve Old
Quite a unique taste, I always wondered how people got chocolate from tasting rum, but that's the first thing that I noticed with this. Nice dark maho
Zinfandel Cask Blend 11-Year
What do we have here then? To be honest I don't know yet. It takes me longer to get used to the drier rums, as it did with Seale's 10 and Clement Agri
Reserva Especial 15
Great tasting rum, cola cubes!
High in sugar but a great tasting rum , will probably buy again.
Needs to breathe
I've read other ratings on various rums and have seen how people say the sweeter rums are good for beginners. As a newby I'd agree as I've found Diplo
Better than Malibu
Finally got round to trying some and it's quite nice.
A quick sample
Only had one try of this, too much of a burn and not much else. When you compare it to MGXO, Appleton 12, Seales 10 or Flor de Cana 12, it doesn't co
My rating will probably rise to a 10 the more I get to know this rum. The 12yr old is lovely but this is an obvious level above. Very rich, dark fruit
Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva
1 shot review
Very perfumy, for want of a better word. I had one shot to go with desert, and while it was pleasant enough, I doubt I'd buy a bottle. It was a bit mu
12 Anos Gran Reserva
It's worth a try if you want to try a selection of different rums. It's quite nice but I won't re-order, there's others I much prefer at the same pric
My review for this is the same as my review for El Dorado 8. Pay the extra for Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva if you want a sipping rum. Get this i
Will make a decent mixer, but as a sipper you'd wish you'd paid the extra few quid for El Dorado 12, which is the best of all the range, not including
A bit smoother than the more smokey Havana 7. All good drinks with coke zero and lime with ice. I'll buy this again next time I need a mixer.
It's the best one available at the supermarket, either that or Mount Gay Eclipse. I went for this tonight because I wanted something a little darker t
Canne Bleue 2015
Rhum Agricole takes some getting used to. This white version is very grassy and I wouldn't recommend it for sipping, not that I think that's what it's
One of the first rums that got me hooked. Haven't had any in years and can't wait to have another bottle. I bought some for the bar where I work recen
Special Reserve 15-Year
Stick with El Dorado 12
To be fair I only had a 3cl sample bottle of this. I took a long time over it but from first opening to final sip there weren't many changes for me. I
Over rated mixer.
Ok rum and coke mixer. Once you've had this it would be a crime to revisit Captain Morgan dark turpentine. It's one to have on the shelf for when y
Not too bad
It's ok, if you're happy to experiment and try different rums then this one is worth a go. After a bottle I see no need to revisit as there are so man
Used to love it
I think I've outgrown this one. Used to rave about it but now I notice more the sharpness and its inability to sip on the rocks. Doesn't stop me from
Stick to the spiced
Decided to try this since the Spiced version is so good. This one's just like Captain Morgan, although I'd have this before that. Disappointing but wa
Friend got me Dark Matter. I'm not keen on it but still waiting to see if it grows on me, doubt it will. It's the same mouth feel you get after dri
Will do for a cheap mixer.
Tried this for the first time this year, better than Captain Morgan Spiced and on a par with Kraken. They're all at the same level so it's just a matt
Better than the dark
Much like Red Leg, quite a nice drink when you're bloated from pints and moving on to shorts. More I review of these cheaper rums more I look forwa
Only reviewing this because it needs to be improved or taken from pub shelves. Why do so many bars have this as their main dark rum option? I used to
Waste of £20
Bought Pink Pigeon spiced today. What a waste of £20. Rebellion same price and 10 times better. Artificial, burns, maybe some hint of nail varnish.
