Reviews and Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Light, reddish amber colour.
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Sweet, Orange, vanilla, cola, cinnamon, brown sugar, honey. You will be able to identify this Rum from several feet away once you pop the cork.
 
Flavour / Taste / Palate
Very sweet aromas - almost like Triple Sec - of orange, tangerine and lemon, are the most dominant, followed by a waxy vanilla and brown sugar, and perhaps a hint of cinnamon and pepper spicing it up.
 
Finish
Sweet finish that leaves you smacking your lips with an orange and cola flavour that just lasts and lasts.
 
Comment
Quite controversial Rum among Rum lovers for its very noticable orange taste. Because the aromas and flavors are not too complex this is an excellent entry point into the world of sipping Rums. 

Flavour spiral
Orange, brown sugar, cola, cinnamon, sweet, sweet vanilla, lemon, honey, tangerine.

William
William,
The nose definitely has primarily vanilla. Sip this one real light first to allow the taste buds to get accustomed to the alcohol. The second taste is where the subtle complexity comes out. sugar sweet and oak come out in the after taste as you sit and contemplate.

Alex,
Wonderfully smooth, easy drinking. A tad sweet, but drinking straight is the way to go! Not quite a favorite, but definitely a good one to try, savor, and enjoy...

DeWayne,
Once you let this breathe for about 2 hours, it’s true form awakens. Pretty nice
 
Tucker
Tucker,
I found it much more enjoyable sipping with some ice to dilute it down, which brought out the citrus and sweet vanilla flavors. Not smooth enough to enjoy straight, but a great value for a novice sipper not looking to spend much.

It is an outstanding, rich cane liqueur with an old-fashioned finish.

Sweet but not overly so, great set of flavours that develop as you drink and even wonderful, if it's not sacrilege to suggest it, with a mixer! Wonderful stuff

Orange aroma & flavour but a light bitter taste in the finish. Complex and long lasting. Nice.

Zu viel Orange für mich. Vielleicht um Dessert zum abschmecken besser geeignet...

One of my fav rums. It's also in one of the tasting packs where you can compare it with zacapa and dos maderas which are my #1 and #2.
