Top reviews for Banks 5 Island Rum:

― This rum has a bold, unique personality and stands on its own well in a rum-forward cocktail like a daiquiri. It even has a great looking bottle that doesn't hog space in your cabinet. It's a bit more earthy than your standard issue white rum, so just be aware.

― Beautiful rum. Perfect for the classics, like daiquiris and mojitos. It's got a little grassy funk. Medium bodied, thick and oily. Smooth.

― I guess I'm still not a white rum guy. Maybe it's too sophisticated for me. Distinctly different flavor spiral from the dark rums. I'm waiting for the neighbor to mix up some Mojitos with this.
