Joe
Joe,
I have to agree it's a rum for bourbon drinkers. It's extremely light, short on the palate, astringent on the nose, yet citrus and vanilla linger. Overall, enjoyable rum but better can be found at the price.
 
Alan
Alan,
Spicy but smooth and satisfying

Molly,
G: def won’t have neat. Main flavor is a toasty bourbon-y-ness M: tastes kind of bland in overall flavor. Just heat
 
Adam
Adam,
Awful start to finish.
 
Miles
Miles,
I'd agree that this is a rum for bourbon lovers. I enjoyed it and think I'll buy a bottle to share among my whiskey drinking friends.

Michael,
Spice, oak, sweetness.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Harsh, and does not come off like a rum. It's not bad, and would not turn it down if offered, but would not pick up a bottle either.
 
Ray
Ray,
Tasted this blind and thought it was bourbon. TONS of oak, no sweetness.

brandon,
close to a good whiskey. a good bite and enjoyable
 
Elizabeth
Elizabeth,
I tried this neat and w/ pineapple in the mix. It's a very strong smell, spicy and finishes harshly, not smooth at all. With pineapple, you can taste the alcohol much more. This isn't as good as I expected for an 8-year-old rum.
 
Brent
Brent,
Surprisingly harsh for an 8 year. Good for a mixer I suppose.
 
Liam
Liam,
Not bad, decent pepper but not very flavorful
 
Robert
Robert,
Loved it. Very smooth.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Starts hot then mellows with a warm finish. Taste of alcohol dominates and doesn’t let the flavors shine all that well. Not my favorite.
 
Pierre
Pierre,
Dark flavor and smooth but a spicy foretaste. Not my cup of tea
 
Michael
Michael,
Do not really like this one. It’s really hot in the throat and nasal cavity. Not for me
 
Louis
Louis,
Nice after taste. Harsh start.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I would describe this as complex in the sense that at first the alcohol taste is slightly overwhelming, but quickly resembles a whisky and ends with a vanilla/caramel taste. Echoing other reviews, this wouldn’t be my go-to for sipping but it has an interesting taste that would go well in a mixed drink.
 
Kelli
Kelli,
But if a sharp taste - not one I could sip on its own, but did mix well with Diet Coke.
 
Samantha
Samantha,
This tasted like cheap rum. The flavor profile was overshadowed by the alcohol taste.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
There’s a really complex flavor profile with this one. I really appreciate the experience of this rum. I do think it’s quite a unique rum. A lot of reviews are comparing it to whiskey more than rum, it definitely has whiskey character to it but it still has a rum sweetness to it. It has a very warm burn in the back of your throat that I love. All in all, I don’t think it’s my favorite rum, but I think it’s great if you’re wanting something bold and expressive.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Had light notes of vanilla and was toasty tasting. I would gladly purchase this.

Ajit,
Smoky, little sweet. Smooth with a dry finish. More like a whiskey than rum. But not my fav.

Reminds me more of whiskey than rum. Not bad but not incredible either
 
Chase
Chase,
Smooth start and good aftertaste but it leaves a strange flavor in my mouth.
 
Paul
Paul,
Little too much attack for my tastes, a bit harsh and cigary; too spice/pepper flavor & dry & proofed up.
 
chris
chris,
as a whiskey drinker this is the smoothest thing ever, very dry at the end
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, dark rum aged for 8 years that has a rich birth; while a rich & oaky life; that leads to a long, dry & delicate death.
 
Lindsey
Lindsey,
Not bad for a standard rum but not good for an 8 year rum. To me, this is a top shelf mixer not a stand alone sipper or high end aged rum.
 
Steven
Steven,
Ok but astringent
 
Becca
Becca,
Not bad but not amazing
 
Nelo
Nelo,
Smooth, not much flavor. Not too exciting. light flavors clearly taste the alcohol.
 
Sarah
Sarah,
Very smooth to begin with, tastes like a light whiskey. Not much depth in flavor.
 
Michael
Michael,
Its not bad but it doesn't really have much flavor - smooth but without depth.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Bright copper color indeed and believable they are not adding any sugars or coloring to their rum. Dry and drinkable but lacks real character. Very light oak and vanilla flavor that ends on a spice note. It would be acceptable for mixing and cocktails but not a go-to sipping rum. It also lacks a real age statement from the TTB and Flaviar's description even leads you to believe its a blend of ages. Glad I tried it, but will not be picking up a bottle anytime soon.

Good but strong.
