Better than expected! Good value for money!

Somewhat works with coke and lime. However even for that application you can find loads of better rum. Not recommended.

For the price it comes at this is a really nice sipping rum. Typical Barbadian in nose and palate. A very young rum so don't expect too much from it. A pleasant nose and ok semi complex fruity palate with a finish that ends almost before it begins. Price to quality is very good.

Die Nase dieses Rums ist ein runder, aber dünner Mix aus tropischen Früchten, Honig und Vanille. Beißende Alkoholnote schwingt auch mit. Im Mund schmeckt man die Süße deutlich, im Abgang kann die scharfe Alkoholnote nicht mehr überdeckt werden. Dazu etwas Ungewöhnliches (chemisch oder blumig). Dennoch bleibt vor allem Honig/Sirup und etwas Frucht übrig.

Als leichten mixer im Pina Colada und Cuba Libre benutzt. Dafür super geeignet, angemessen im Preis und gut verfügbar.

Lekkere rum voor een goeie prijs. Eerste Plantation, maar niet m’n laatste. Benieuwd naar de XO.

taste a little to much of alcohol, like a cheap Rum

Very sweet aromas of dried fruits, marzipan and arrak. The taste does not dissapoint! Incredible round and sweet at first and then the taste of spices after a few seconds. Very pleasant taste that makes this an excellent sipping rum and one That I frequently reccomends. (Easy to find here in Sweden and at €27 it is a bargain)
