Dictador 20 Year Old Solera System Rum
Bries,
Deliciously rich and complex. I get caramel & roasty spice on the nose, molasses, tamarind, vanilla, and maple on the palate. Dark, warm, ruby-amber, visually.
Bumbu XO Rum
Jason,
A great sipping rum. On the initial sip, you feel the vanilla. You catch the hints of toffee in your mouth as the warmth increases. It finishes with a great roasted sweetness. I'll be sure to keep this one stocked.
Ron Zacapa Solera 23
Steven,
I immediately added this to my bar! My wife and I met a wonderful bartender at Jamian’s in Red Bank, NJ, who after hearing I preferred whiskey, brought a new bottle of this out. He insisted I try it, saying it drank like whiskey but was, of course, Rum. I do like Rum but this brew is amazing!! Highly recommended and it will always be stocked by me!
Appleton Estate Signature Blend
Michael,
Get's blown away by DR rum, not drinkable
El Dorado 21 Year Old Special Reserve
Jamie,
Completely unique from any rum I’ve ever tasted. The flavor is immediate and long lasting. While I can’t afford the bottle, it would be nice to get used to it. Otherwise I would prefer what I’m used to.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Michael,
Sweet but not over the top. Very smooth. Great with a cigar after dinner.
Bumbu The Original Rum
Austin,
This is a good rum, but I would 'almost' call it a flavored rum. It has a strong note of vanilla caramels and banana, I can also pick up some coconut and burned sugar / creme brulee. There is only a little 'spicy' characteristic making it very smooth.
Kraken Black Spiced Rum
Jason,
If you like Spiced Rum, this one is pretty damn good. Its not bourbon, but its still pretty damn good.
Due North Rum
Jamie,
This one was special. It stood out as the most well balanced of the tasting package.
STOLEN Overproof Rum
Jamie,
I loved it. I’ve read a few reviews about a bad smell, but I can’t smell. The flavor is immediate and unique and I could really taste the fruit. I don’t know what to tell all you smelling types, cover your nose? Drink it out of a skinny glass?
Dictador 12 Year Old Solera System Rum
Vincent,
oaky vanilla nose, vanilla caramel taste, with a sweet finish. It is truly smooth and easy to drink

Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy Rum

A very nice rum, It is not like most rums. If you like pineapple and you like rum, this is a rum for you.
El Dorado 21 Year Old Special Reserve
David,
This is phenomenal
Dictador 20 Year Old Solera System Rum
Timothy,
My wife doesn’t like rum at all, but when we got the tasting box with Dictador in it, she is now a convert to excellent rum. Dictador is a smooth after-dinner drink that is well worth the price.
Leblon Cachaça
Mike,
Strong sipper, heavy aroma of sugar up front and mellows out into a marshmallowy sweet finish. Not good for mixing!
Flor de Caña 25 Year
Mike,
I ordered this rum, after reading it's bio, to sample the so called rum of rums. I was blown away by the aroma, the smoothness, and the after glow in my throat. I believe that it truly is the rum of rums. Definitely in my top 5 of aged rums that I have had the pleasure to taste.
Mount Gay XO Reserve Cask
Joel,
My go to rum, tastes great neat, with ginger beer/cola or in cocktails
Spytail Black Ginger Rum
Michael,
Smells very sweet and a pleasant smell, but the taste and aftertaste are disgusting. On the plus side, it is rather smooth. I would never buy this one, not even to give to my worst enemy.
Ron Zacapa XO Solera Gran Reserva Especial (700mL)
Todd,

Pusser's British Navy Gunpowder Proof
Brian,
Not normally a rum guy but I was going to a friends house for a party. They liked rum so I got this to take along. Long story short, I took it to the party and gave it a try. Holy cow! Nice flavor, a bit strong but it's 109 proof so I get that. Every one who tried it loved it including me. I got a second bottle for the house.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Cyrus,
Exceptional taste and very smooth
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Melanie,
Who needs dessert when you have this rum in your cupboard. This is perfect for after a savory meal to sip on. It's one of my favorites.
Bumbu The Original Rum
al,
Buttery smooth with hints of brown sugar, vanilla and butterscotch. No mixing here: awesome flavor straight from the bottle.
El Dorado 15 Year Old
Aaron,
Very sweet with lots of brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, and molasses. Flavor isn't artificial tasting, which is why I normally shy away from dark rum. Very tasty!
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Paul,
Lovely, bloody lovely!! Very vanilla. Ginger ale and lime. Gorgeous
Chamarel Premium Gold Rum
guest,
Nose: Dark spice, vanilla, sweet stone fruit and dried grass. Palate: The nose leads into the palate with caramel, sandalwood and a little more fruity tang too. Finish: Dry and spicy.
Bumbu XO Rum

This is a great rum. Toffee combined with sticky syrup, some vanilla and allspices. A great drink
El Dorado 15 Year Old
Stephanie,
Very sweet with brown sugar and Carmel. Had to mix with ginger ale to finish it.

Just bit too spicy for my taste.

Great for mixing, but just a little too sweet for sipping. All in all, a very nice flavor though.

This is a very enjoyable rum to drink straight without ice or frozen cubes.
Bumbu The Original Rum
Daniel,
Very easy to drink straight. Really sweat and smooth.
Ron Millonario Sistema Solera 15 Reserva
John,
Wonderful aroma of candy and fruit, and great on the palate. Thick and sweet, but not overbearing in sweetness. A great sipping rum for after dinner or just relaxing on the deck.
Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy Rum
Terry,
This rum is smooth light and has the nice flavor of pineapple without being overpowering. For the price this is definitely worth buying or even trying atleast once.
Leblon Cachaça
Dan,
Not sure yet
Kraken Black Spiced Rum
Kevin,
I like it. I know a lotta' rum snobs turn up their nose, but for the rest of us there's always something interesting and exciting about Kraken. It's great on its own or in a mixed drink. It's bold and strong.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Israel,
Amazing sweetness balanced by cinnamon and citrus flavors. This would be an amazing rum with a cigar!
Zafra 21 Year Old Master Reserve Rum
Athanasios,
Easy to sip and simple, definitely can taste the hint of bourbon from the cask. Above average but nothing crazy
Dictador 12 Year Old Solera System Rum
Angela,
Oaky, vanilla nose. Strong caramel flavoring, with some burn. Over ice and it's really smooth
Wild Tiger Rum Special Reserve
Nicholas,
This was my first taste of a rum and very pleasant it was. I usually enjoy whisky and bourbons and now look forward to trying out some more rums.
