“This is another of the good low cost rums out there and as time has progressed my score has gone up for this rum. In my mind very well balanced especially if you consider the price tag on it. This one I would also consider a rum for both beginners as well as those more picky in rums.”

“I think it’s a quite mediocre rum relaying on sugar. It has definitely tastes similar to other Panama rums, but it’s weaker than the ones I like. Picture: From a blind test with Ian Burrell at Birka Cruises.”
