“If you take all of the rums in the El Dorado Rare Collection, then this one is the bottom one. Not saying it's bad though, it's still a really good zip 😊”

“In contrast to the CBH 98 Diamond, it is much tamer, milder and rounder. Milk chocolate, cinnamon, allspice, mint leaves and dried raisins and dates with cinnamon. Extremely deliciously balanced and complex. However, the CBH is much more "on the nose" and much more complex and fuller than this one. However, I'm complaining at a high level, this really is a great Diamond!”

“Great nose! Needs a little time to breathe, but unfolds superbly. Creamy, spicy and intense on the palate. However, it lacks the complexity of its CBH sister cask for a top rating.”
