Top reviews for Gold of Mauritius Dark Rum:

— Best rum so far

— Enjoyed so much bought another 4 bottles for friends

— I cannot describe it less than “Dear God”. It has a great flavoured taste, is the type of rum that goes well anytime. You would be able to make cocktails out of it, but I think you would ruin it if you fo that. If you want a flavoured rum bottle around, pick this one. I know I will.

Richard
Richard,
A very nice rum with subtle hints of smokiness (reminded me a little of bourbon in the taste).Not as sweet as many I have tried and quite light on the palate. Very easy to drink on its own. For the price I would happily buy this again.

Niko,
Very nice, own kind of rum... Not too sweet for cuba libre. Takes some time to get used to after morgan but i could take another bottle of this in future... i also like the bottle design
 
François-Xavier
François-Xavier,
Not Natural and not in a good way... The color is very dark, which is troubling for a 1 year old rum.. but it spent 3 months in porto cask, so I didn't judge it there, I don't know enough about aging in porto cask, maybe the coloring is much faster then with bourbon for instance, so moving on. Then the smell is something almost medicinal, with a first smell of sweets and then on the end on bananas. At this point I was almost scared to taste it, but at the end, it was almost a relief, as the medicinal feels like is gone. Very smooth, almost heavy, definitively with added caramel/sugar, more like Ron. A Rum for who never tasted good Rum

A rum that taste some like a sweeter whiskey. Not super as it self maybe a 7 tops but mix with coke and it is perfect as not too sweet and not too rough.

As a liquorice lover this rum was like a dream. Loads of liquorice scent and when I tasted it i first got even more liquorice notes that slowly turned into vanilla and butterscotch.

Having been lucky enough to travel to Mauritius for my honeymoon I made it my personal side mission to try as many Mauritian rums as possible. Without doubt, this was my favourite and came home with me on the plane. I think my wife is still there? Deliciously smooth, and well balanced well worth a try.

Great one!

Jonas,
This is a young, intencsive and jumpy rum suitable well as a substitute to a Highland malt.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Nice, smooth Rum with a sweet, chocolatey palate. Velvety smooth, peppery punch for a finish. Great rum and I don't usually go for a neat dram of the stuff.

Not sure why I'm getting rum. I don't like this type of alcohol. Best served by not.

Jon
Jon,
Simply the best rum I have ever tasted! I received the sample in one of the tasting packs and had to buy 2 bottles immediately. Sadly, those are now gone and I can't find this rum anywhere. I'm waiting very patiently for Uncle Flaviar to re-stock :)
 
Onni
Onni,
Excellent and really smooth rum. I think it might even be smoother than Ron Zacapa, my another favorite. I really like the base of this rum and I enjoy it straight.
