Dos Maderas PX 5YO + 5YO Rum
Todd,
I loved this rum. it is sweet and gentle on the mouth. Truely a rum that is savored as you drink it.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Manuel,
Smooth drink, love the vanilla smell and taste. If you have the drink over ice, the drink feels stronger and less of a vanilla taste. Room temp seems to be smoother. Will be a normal purchase for me moving forward.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Sara,
If you are serious about your rums- definitely skip this. I suspect this would be fine as a mixing rum but it is clear that there is a large amount of Artificial flavoring and sweeteners added. Rum ratings has a number of well written reviews about Don Papa. It’s clearly over priced for what it is https://rumratings.com/brands/1052-don-papa-small-batch
Ron Millonario Sistema Solera 15 Reserva
Daniel,
Sweet, smooth, smells a bit of the ocean.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Joshua,
This rum is VERY aromatic and has a lot of bold flavors. After cracking this one open, I had friends in the next room commenting on the wonderful smell wafting out of my glass! It has all the flavors you would describe a tropical island befitting to the Philippines. My only problem with it is rum doesn't sit well for me. If I'm going to go for rum in the future, this is the one!
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Edwin,
Really good sweet and smooth, not a big rum drinker. This will be good for that special occasion or in a rum cake.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Eric,
I'm not a big rum drinker but I sure loved this. It's very sweet and fruity. Probably lacks a lot of characteristics that real rum fans enjoy. For me, it's a nice contrast to my ryes. I was drinking it neat. I'm going through the bottle faster than I anticipated because I keep reaching for it.
Facundo Eximo Rum
bob,
I have given this rum to 2 of my friends and they could not have liked it more. Smooth. Straight up Or over the rocks. Throughly enjoyed it.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Peter,
This was a bit of an experiment and was very pleasantly surprised. It is lovely and not being a rum drinker generally i was so pleased with this!
Larga Vida XO Rum 2019 Edition
Stephanie,
Good and tasty by itself or mixed . Not my favorite though. Smooth in the beginning with a little kick to it
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Jaron,
One of the better rums I have purchased, the sweet, honey finish makes this a perfect dessert drink. Caramel, vanilla, and dark chocolate notes are the most discernible with a moderate amount of spice mixed in.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Richard,
Very smooth and flavorful
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Steve,
I was able to try this and it quickly became a hit. It’s not my favorite rum but it is in the top three. Very nice caramel and vanilla flavor with a hint of spice but smooth going down. I would recommend if you enjoy Rums
Larga Vida XO Rum 2019 Edition
Jarvis,
Really disappointed with this rum. It’s got a good nose and taste but for the price, I was expecting more. I’ve had better for less. There’s nothing special that stood out.
Coconut Cartel Rum
Jarvis,
I was really shocked with this rum. It’s mellow and smooth and has nice legs in my Glencairn. I prefer my rum neat and this is one that you can definitely sip with no added ingredients. On the nose I got a light coconut aroma and on the taste I got coconut but it’s not overwhelming, Vanilla, and on the finish I get a little bit more coconut but it rolls into a light chocolate profile. Totally satisfied with this. A worthy buy and one that will be a staple in my bar.
Barbancourt 8 YO
Michael,
Excellent value for money - this has been my go-to dark rum for a long time
Dictador 20 Year Old Solera System Rum
Patrick,
The finish on this is quite amazing. Never really had a rum quite like it. Worth a taste. Will be drinking again.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Malcolm,
Not had rum for ages. This is good for an occasional tipple but not an everyday drink. This bottle will last a wee while!
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Colin,
A candied flavor that went well with pineapple juice.
Dos Maderas PX 5YO + 5YO Rum
Stephen,
Decent, a little on the sweet side for my taste. I would think of mixing this with something to take advantage of the sweetness.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Eric,
Awesome!
Kirk and Sweeney 12 Year Old Rum
Lisa,
A bit harsh...
Ron Zacapa XO Solera Gran Reserva Especial
Tharon,
Very nice balanced rum. Not too sticky sweet and had a medium finish.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Tharon,
This was too sweet, flat, and cloying. It didn't have much of a finish. It's not awful, but it wasn't a favorite either.
Ron de Jeremy XO
Tharon,
This was our family's favorite of the "Game of Rums" tasting box. It had the longest finish of the three and wasn't cloyingly sweet. Lots of vanilla at first, but more spicy and oaky on the finish. Really well balanced and lots of fun (except for having to explain to my daughter-in-law who Ron Jeremy was ;->).
Zaya Gran Reserva 12 Rum
Ajay,
Smooth velvety not too spicy. You can taste the extra years. very good rum for the price, not an elite top-shelf rum but knocking on the door and an impressive go to for high end rum cocktails.
El Dorado 15 Year Old
Marieka,
This rum was freaking YUM! I would add banana to the flavor profile as well. This is a perfect, smooth punch of flavor for sippingn rocks or with just a splash of coconut, pineapple, and a big slice of orange.
Mount Gay XO Reserve Cask
Marieka,
It was decent rum, but a little sharper than I like and less flavor than other premium rums. Wouldn’t buy again.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Nathan,
A fine spiced rum with plenty of sweet notes. I enjoyed it most when taken neat, and the overwhelmingly sweet finish from the cane honey base makes it feel like a dessert drink.
Ron Zacapa Solera 23
Randy,
The only rum I've ever not mixed. Yum.
Larga Vida XO Rum 2019 Edition
Danny,
Little too sweet for me. Had a finish like maple syrup.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Matthew,
Such a nice sweet taste to this drink. Really took me by surprise
DeadHead Rum
Cody,
Very good! Pretty smooth. Love the look of the bottle!
DeadHead Rum
Robert,
The 6th star is for the bottle. It really does look fantastic. As for the rum, don't expect wonders. It has all the smoothness of a really good rum but as far as flavor it's a bit of a "?". There are some notes of caramel and spice but the finish has an almost "plastic bottle" flavor... nothing really stands out. I've only tried it straight but I'm sure it'll disappear smoothly into some cola or ginger beer.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Tomislav,
Waste of true spirit. Too much of artificially flavour for my taste.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Scott,
Smooth sipping rum with prominent honey vanilla flavors. The oak comes through around the third sip. This was definitely a surprise!
Dictador 20 Year Old Solera System Rum
Brian,
Caramel nose. Warm flavor with leather and more caramel. A bit of burn, but for its price class a very nice sipper.
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Brian,
Very smooth with vanilla and tobacco notes. A bit leathery but lovely to sip.
Kirk and Sweeney 12 Year Old Rum
Jeff,
Very smooth on the rocks. Subtle hints of vanilla. This one is delicious.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Michael,
Terrific! A rich, bold flavor that I can’t wait to have again.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Todd,
Gave as gift; not a heavy rum connoisseur, did try a glass neat(@ start). Wow a heavy spice kick upon the nose, a little less upon the tounge. Was anticipating a little sweeter after taste, but never came. Ended up with a splash of coke on the first one and full mix on the next 2. Better than Bacardi and Malibu style when mixing, but shipping for this one took 4 weeks.
Plantation 5 Year Old Grand Reserve Rum
Ray,
Sweet and smooth with strong hints of vanilla and cinnamon. A very good sipping rum.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Tom,
Great Rum
Bumbu XO Rum
Jerry,
Fantastic! Great sweet to boozy mix with the sugar and carmel you want in a rum, yet the smoothness you want to sip it on ice. well played!
Pyrat XO Reserve Rum
Lee,
Wouldn't buy again..
