Ron Zacapa Solera 23
Elaine,
Dry, smooth, Vanilla with a hint of caramel.
Bumbu The Original Rum
Alison,
Strong banana
Ron Barceló Imperial
Chris,
A very good every day sipping rum. It's definitely on the sweet side and is like a mouthful of caramel. For the price, it's an excellent buy and I've enjoyed it very much.
Ron Abuelo Centuria
guest,
Probably the finest rum I've tried. Very smooth and balanced, with hints of prune and an oakey finish.
Ron Botran 18 Year Old Solera 1893
Gregory,
This is a nice rum. There is a tartness about it upon swallowing that I don't like. Everything else is good in the rum world but not great. For a 18 yr solera it just does not have the fullness and complexity I would expect. A pleasant drink and very nice finish. But not a truly great rum.
Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Rum
Jake,
Smooth and solid dark rum and also sweet.
Mount Gay Eclipse
Kevin,
Refreshing taste
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Michael,
Listen, I'm an expert on rum. I can confirm that this is in fact, rum. Sippin' rum
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
John,
Notes of orange candy, honey, butterscotch, and vanilla. Soooo smooth...almost too sweet. Perfect neat or over ice.
Plantation Barbados XO 20th Anniversary Rum
Alexandra,
Our favorite go-to rum until very recently. Sweet molasses, vanilla aroma and fuller bodied finish. Also great as a mixer.
Diplomatico Ambassador
Alexandra,
Richer flavor. Sophisticated molasses notes. Smooth!
Bumbu The Original Rum
Alexandra,
Super drinkable - neat over ice perfect. Banana and vanilla sweet tones. One of the best reasonable priced rums in the market.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Lili,
Coffee and carmel in the nose. The dark chocolate, coffee notes upfront with lingering licorice and carmel finish. It delivers a very different flavor profile.
Ron Zacapa Solera 23
Rob,
Dry, stone fruit, leather, vanilla, sugar cane
DeadHead Rum
Bryan,
It was a bit stronger than I expected but once you mix it with coke, coffee, or juice it becomes very sweet and easy to drink.
SelvaRey Chocolate Rum
Gissela,
Nice sipping rum, but not as great as others. Was hoping for a more cocoa undertone, but didn't quite find it. Also lacked the buttery richness of some other rums I've tasted. The flavors on both end were very subtle.
Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy Rum
Steven,
Sweet, pineapple/citrus
Brugal 1888 Rum
Ashley,
Woody aftertaste is excellent.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Shane,
Regular Papas Dark is good, but the sherry cask finish is where it's at. My favorite rum.
Kirk and Sweeney 12 Year Old Rum
Shane,
Decent sweet rum, nothing too complicated.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Curtis,
One of the finest rums I’ve ever tasted. Almost as big a treat for the nose as it is for the tongue. A mixture of caramel, sugars, fruits, and spices.
Ron Zacapa Solera 23
guest,
Vanilla, smooth. Bang for the buck!
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Jakub,
Very sweet, with a bit of spicy but mostly vanilla flavour. Full flavour, rather heavy. Perhaps a bit too artificial vanilla flavour but overall a good fit for cravings for a sweet spicy glass of a beverage. Will buy again. Further down the bottle - maybe too artificial flavouring?
Plantation 5 Year Old Rum
Jakub,
Spicy, slightly sweet, somewhat strong sensation yet smooth
Grander 8 Year Old Rum
Peter,
Very good initial flavor, and smooth at first. Not a very pleasant after taste. Personally did not like the hint of nutmeg at the end.
Grander 8 Year Old Rum
Jordan,
Can’t figure out the nose. Maybe oak. Spicy with a sweet finish.
Ron Centenario 30 Year Old Edicion Limitada
A.,
It’s yummy
Kirk and Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum
Lydia,
Loved this. Better than some top shelf Irish whiskey.
Ron Zacapa Solera 23
Jaka,
Very cocoa, very lovely!
Ron Del Barrilito 3 Star Rum
Kevin,
This is one of my absolute favorite Rums. I was on a tour of Old San Juan and the guide who was a local younger woman probably in her late 20's. We were going by the Bicardi plant and she said "If you like Bicardi that's good but trust me get a bottle of 3 star. 3 star and coconut water on ice... That's all you need." She was right. Sweet, Caramel, Toffee, soft feel.
Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Rum
Benjamin,
Flavorful for a rum - some strong nutmeg and spice notes.
Ron Botran 18 Year Old Solera 1893
Dance,
this was good.
Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Year Old Rum
Kevin,
Sweet and rich. One of my favorites
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Brian,
Best rum I ever had.
Ron Zacapa Solera 23
Derek,
If you like Brugal 1888, you’ll like this.
Goslings Black Seal Rum 151
Emmanuel,
strong taste of sugar cane, very enjoyable, one of the best rums I have tasted
Ron Del Barrilito 3 Star Rum
Jeffrey,
In 1978 I met a student from Puerto Rico in college, and prior to spring break gave him $10 to bring me some rum back from his visit home. Of the three bottles he brought, one was Ron Del Barrilito, and I found it delicious. I've been looking for it ever since! Found it on Flaviar and had to have it. It is still delicious, one of the best rums in my bar.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Lonni,
This rum has the right balance of flavors. The aroma is vanilla and spice. Excellent to drink neat or mix cocktails. I am on my second bottle.
Bumbu The Original Rum
Aaron,
This doesn't meet the standard for rum by definition, I think. Bumbu has an intense sugary taste like a liqueur. Strong notes of banana and toffee/caramel and other sweet things will assault your nose and mouth upon drinking. The aftertaste is a sweet and vanilla-y experience. All in all, Bumbu is acceptable. It's nothing mind blowing, but if you like sweets you'll probably enjoy this flavor-added drink. This seems like a drink you serve to someone new to drinking, as the character falls flat after it's initial burst. Personally, I'd rather invest $15 more and get one of the many fantastic drinks in that price range. It's not bad per se, but it's nowhere remotely near good. It's cheap and it falls a little on the quick-and-dirty drink side. Sometimes you have to tolerate a few 4s to really appreciate a 9, right? Just don't try that same line of thought with your partner. ;)
Mount Gay Black Barrel
Walter,
Hard to parse out just why I like it. Tops is that it is very smooth drinking it straight. Slight sweet caramel taste. Pleasant warming after taste.
Captain Morgan Private Stock Rum
Joshua,
For the times when sweetness with a kick sounds perfect.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
guest,
One of the more finer rums and definitely my favorite to sip on!
Brugal 1888 Rum
Marcia,
Liked it, loved it. Love the window dressing too. This was my 2nd time ordering it. I’ll order it again !
Ableforth's Rumbullion! Rum
Roodley,
Loved it, intense taste but the flavor is not over shadowed by the alcohol. It can be mixed for a nice winter cocktail or sipped as is paired with a nice cigar.
Pusser's Blue Label
Chaz,
This is definitely a unique rum with a unique backstory. I could see why they gave it to sailors for such a long time. It packs a punch and helps you relax after a strenuous day. I wouldn't make it as a sailor because I can't do it as a sipping rum, but it is ideal for a rum and coke for me.
Plantation Barbados XO 20th Anniversary Rum
Chaz,
Quintessential Caribbean Rum! A go-to of mine for a rich, smooth sipping rum.
Plantation 5 Year Old Rum
Chaz,
Would recommend for a nice, full-tasting rum and coke. Attempted to sip and there are much better Plantation rums for that.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Gene,
Like it
Dictador 20 Year Old Solera System Rum
Micah,
Think French toast breakfast! Smooth and sweet. Too sweet for me, but wife loves.
Bumbu The Original Rum
Jay,
Incredible flavor. Probably the best general RUM I've ever had. Perfectly sweet and balanced. The nose on this is absolutely beautiful. You can't go wrong here.
