Adam,
Slinky smooth like honey bee
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Smooth, but muted. There were no bad flavors, but there was little flavor overall. This was from the Galaxy 2 sample. So, perhaps there was a problem there.
 
Miles
Miles,
Notes of maple, baking spices and most of all, dark brown sugar blend smoothly on the tongue. Sip this neat.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Maple at first sip. But the roasted honey came through on subsequent sips.

Strong flavor of french toast ; lots more maple than the flavor spiral would suggest ; gorgeous
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
FRENCH TOAST! Thank you! I was trying to think of how to describe that sweetness that was maple, spicy and roasty all at once. Nailed it.
Brian
Brian,
I get a strong maple flavor smell and was excited to try. Definitely smooth and a solid rum.

Brian

Caramel nose. Warm flavor with leather and more caramel. A bit of burn, but for its price class a very nice sipper.
 
Jeff
Jeff,

one of the finest things i have ever drank. pure roasted honey
 
Edward
Edward,
Got this in the Rum Galaxy 2 tasting box and it was the unanimous favorite for both my wife and I. The nose immediately reminded me of a large stack of buttered pancakes dripping with maple syrup. Sprinkle in a side of cinnamon sugar dusted muffins. On the palate it is sweet but not cloying and again I get the maple vibe with a hint of cinnamon.
 
Paul
Paul,
The nose is amazing, like maple syrup or a pecan praline. Palate is complex and balanced, with a long spicy finish
 
Elizabeth
Elizabeth,
Nice and smooth, tried it on a large rock. It's not overly sweet. This is one to have in the collection.
 
Brent
Brent,
One to have on hand. Price is probably right maybe even good for a 20 year.

This one isn’t bad. Definitely get the honey and oak flavors. Goes down pretty well
 
John
John,
Smell is a bit rough but that flavor from the moment it leaves is smooth and sweet though not overly so. Even people I know who don't like straight liquor said they would have no problem drinking this. Hands down my favorite bottle in my collection at the moment.
 
Steven
Steven,
Very smooth. Very good tasting rum

This one was my least favorite of the box. Harsh and very dry.
 
mathias
mathias,
Great after dinner rum full of sweet molasses and other sweet flavours with a nice almost liquorice/aniseed finish. Great value for money!
 
Casey
Casey,
Tastes like maple syrup

Ajit
Ajit,
Very smooth. Almost like a knob creek smoked maple bourbon. It’s smoky and sweet. Little on the sweet side and easy to sip and enjoy.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very complicated. Almost a dessert rum. The maple is verrrrrry strong almost too much so. But incredibly refined and complex.
 
Michael
Michael,
Love it very smooth
 
Bries
Bries,
Deliciously rich and complex. I get caramel & roasty spice on the nose, molasses, tamarind, vanilla, and maple on the palate. Dark, warm, ruby-amber, visually.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
My wife doesn’t like rum at all, but when we got the tasting box with Dictador in it, she is now a convert to excellent rum. Dictador is a smooth after-dinner drink that is well worth the price.
 
Celestino
Celestino,
Very good. Very tasty. Recommend this.
 
Susanna
Susanna,
I am not so familiar with Rhum, but this was excellent. It was spicy and yet not too spicy. A heartwarming drink in February’s cold weather. I recommend this.
 
Chase
Chase,
Very sweet start and a complex aftertaste that leaves you wanting more.
 
chris
chris,
i absolutely love this
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, rich, dark rum that has a rich birth; while an even richer life ; that leads to a long & smooth death with loads of dark brow sugar..
 
Kalle
Kalle,
Great rum for sipping. Paired with good cigar, it's nearly perfect.
 
Roy
Roy,
Strong Carmel tones. Great flavor and easy to sip.
 
Lindsey
Lindsey,
Pretty damn good for a $60 bottle of rum! Smooth and balanced. Good oak and honey and caramel notes. A little spice and sweetness on the finish. Perfect. Could be a little more robust and rich to get to that 10 starts though.
 
Steven
Steven,
Smooth, lovely aroma and delicious finish

Holy moly maple syrup!! Ever want to get drunk eating pancakes well you have found the solution. What amazing balance of flavor, depth and smoothness. Very sweet on The pallet.
 
Adam
Adam,
Amazing flavor!!
 
Bill

Well balanced, smooth and rich with a great caramel flavor the has a chocolate and slight citrus note. Amazing rum for the price point.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Honey in the forefront. Hints of coffee and bit of heat
 
Scott
Scott,
Easily in my top 5 rums. Sweet, sweet vanilla.
 
Jens
Jens,
The smokey flavor isn't really my thing, so keep that in my when seeing the review. Prefer something like Plantation XO 20th and Ron Cartvaio XO.
 
Michael
Michael,
I like the complexity and richness - worth a bottle.
 
Michael
Michael,
My wife and I love the smell. This is an outstanding rum, with a great finish.
 
Desirae
Desirae,
The smell alone was tasteful. Every sip was delicious. Favorite!
 
Cory
Cory,
Very rich and tasty. It almost resembled a great port wine, very easy to sip.
 
Jackie
Jackie,
Nice sweet aftertaste
 
Raoul
Raoul,
My first rum after a long time. A bit disappointing: high alcohol and unpolished, not as much taste and flavor as the Barbados or Venezuelan rums.
 
Rodney
Rodney,
I'm typically a Scotch and red wine girl and bought this to try something different. The reviews and flavour Spiral seemed quite accurate to me. I enjoy the rich aroma and could definitely get the hints of toffee and muscovado sugar. Has a slight bite to start, though finishes smooth and sweet. Not the kind to mix with anything other than a cube. Can this replace my port for a apres-dinner digestif? Pairs best next to the fireplace with a cozy blanket and good conversation. Make it a long pour!
 
Mathew
Mathew,
I’m not generally into rum, but this is excellent. It’s like maple candy with spices and hints of vanilla. It’s still a tad sweet for my taste but I didn’t know rum could be this good.
 
Shannon
Shannon,
So smooth and warming
 
Eric
Eric,
Likely the best rum Ive ever tried. Just wow.
 
Josh
Josh,
This was in the Flaviar Awards 2017 tasting box. It was my least favorite, but I'm not really that big into rum (so take this review with a grain of salt). It tasted a lot like brown sugar to me.
 
Scott
Scott,
Sweet with a hint of smoke
 
Brady
Brady,
Aroma presents a smoky and surprisingly fresh, plant-like smell. This may be due to the virgin sugar cane. Taste is very smooth! You can taste the virgin sugar cane - pure at the forefront. The rum-like spiciness is tailed by honey flavor. Not too sweet though, for a coffee-maple factor follows after that, and lingers on the palate. The flavor spiral™ on this one correlates nicely. Very palatable, and unique. A delicious twenty year aged rum, making it a must try!
 
Troy
Troy,
My first time drinking 20-year-old rum and I have to say is excellent

Very smooth rum, better than their 12 year.

Very different rum from others. Not as strong in terms of alcohol, but very rich in taste it's taste of oak and honey. Definitely a recommended rum!
