Flor de Caña 4 Year Añejo Oro
James,
Very nice for the price. Makes a nice Daiquiri.
Bumbu The Original Rum
Roger,
I so wanted t like this, but the cloying sweetness was too much too handle. Perhaps, poured over vanilla ice cream, it would taste like a banana syrup that might work, but there was no alcohol twinge and only overwhelming artificial banana smell and taste. Live and learn.
Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy Rum
Steven,
Very good. Not overly sweet and good down easy.
Bumbu The Original Rum
guest,
Tastes like spiced bananas and candy, but not in a saccharine way. It reminds me of things like caramel and toffee simply because of the creaminess but it’s not super sweet, it’s just a hint of sweet, the perfect amount imo, but the notes of banana, spices, chocolate, and molasses give it the impression of sweets minus all that sugar. It’s really hard to describe it, and I’m sorry if I’m not doing a great job, but it’s magical. The nose is similar, you don’t smell any ethanol unless you really stick your nose deep in the glass. This review is for drinking it near, I’ll update after trying on the rocks and mixed, but I think the fact that it is this smooth neat (and warm/room temp in summer) says it all. I love liquors but hate the taste of ethanol and often need some sort of chaser at some point. Not here. I don’t even want a chaser for this, I just want to enjoy the deliciousness. Which is easy, since it has an excellent long lasting finish that is all flavor and zero ethanol. 10/10
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Robert,
Not a bad sipping rum but a bit too sweet.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Elizabeth,
Really solid and beautifully unique flavor. Had it in a tasting box and had to order a bottle.
El Dorado 21 Year Old Special Reserve
Thomas,
Really great stuff. Fairly new to the world of high-end rum but tried a taster of this and it was magnificent. Well worth the try.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum
James,
I found it to be very sweet with a cloying, almost medicinal smell lingering after a sip. My Fiancée liked it however.
Mount Gay XO Reserve Cask
Ross,
Bourbon and Gin guy but starting to dip my toes into more complex Rum's. This makes a great Daiquiri or nice on a rock. Love the spice and caramel notes. A very solid buy.
Matusalem 15 Gran Reserva Solera Rum
Maarten,
Good tasting rum that I use as mixing rum. No so great for sipping but a quality basic rum.
Gold of Mauritius Dark Rum Solera 5
Maarten,
Nice rum for sipping and mixing as well. Sweet taste with tropical notes. Hints of vanilla and banana
English Harbour 5 Year Old
Jonathan,
This is an excellent rum that punches significantly above its price point. Coconut husk and oak are present. I'll drink this neat or in simple cocktails, but often neat.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Jonathan,
Very sweet. Thick on the palate to the point of being almost sticky and cloying. Lingering taste that is reminiscent of maple. Smooth enough to sip, but I can't get past the sweetness and that is said as a fan of Diplomatico and similar style rums.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Deborah,
it wasn't what I expected, was looking for a sipping but I like it better mixed with a little water or on ice.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Michael,
This is a rum for the bourbon drinker. Smooth and flavor a normal bourbon drinker like me should like.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Purcell,
The smoothest rum I have ever tasted. Can't stop sipping
Bumbu The Original Rum
guest,
Delicious! My new favorite!
Due North Rum
Bruce,
Let me start by saying I am new to sipping rums. Rum is my favorite alcohol to mix with something, but straight up is a learning experience for me. The first thing I notice from the tasting glass is its pungent alcohol scent! As I move to the side to aquire the secondary ingredients, I can detect a burnt caramel aroma. The alcohol smell remaims overwhelming and I'm at a loss to identify anything else. The legs are on the thin side and of a medium length in my novice estimation. The first sip greets my tounge with the same overpowering alcohol I smell. This time, I taste burnt in the alcohol flavor. This rum is consistent in its ability to let you know it is alcohol you hold. Mixing the sippping rum may be a sin, but I need to do something so I can get this down. Tasting as per what my pallet is accustomed to, I find the alcohol smell is still primary and is nearly overwhelming anything else. However, now I can swallow it and think about something other than alcohol. This allows me to the recognise burnt caramel flavor. There are hints of banana in the finish. I'll summarize by saying it's all in a name. Van Brunt Stillhouse's Due North Rum could be called Van BURNT Stillhouse Due North Alcohol -- it's lighter than Sterno.
Bumbu The Original Rum

La Hechicera Fine Aged Rum
Charles,
Dark, rich, and sweet - just what I look for in rum of this class. Personally, I would only ever sip it.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Jennifer,
This is so good. The flavor profile is spot on. I can just sip it and I love that it is sweet but not too much. It is smooth and gentle bite. I'm so glad I chose this one ❤️ it's my new favorite
Kirk and Sweeney 12 Year Old Rum
Newell,
Very enjoyable. A bit sweet and caramel but additional nice complexity and smooth. I find this very similar to the more mature 25 yo sibling, but not quite as smooth and complex.
Kirk and Sweeney 23 Year Old Rum
Newell,
I thought I'd like it more than the younger K&S, but not really noticably smoother. Don't get me wrong, it's excellent, just not sooo much better than the younger sibling.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Anthony,
Love this rum, it has layers of complexity, and deep flavors with a bright finish that makes you feel like being under a palm tree with your toes in the sand.
Ron Abuelo 12 Year Old Rum
Robert,
Amazing.
Santa Teresa 1796 Solera Rum
Burr,
This is rum in particular, has a complex and sophisticated flavor profile. Venezuelan rums specifically have a unique flavor and depth that I think most avoid based on geography. If you love rum I urge you to explore Venezualan rums, you won’t be disappointed. This is a flavor avenue that is rich and an enexpcted departure from Caribbean rums that are the social standard. B
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Becky,
The description was good, but at the end of the day we didn't know what to expect. WOW! This is really, really good - smooth, sweet, and far superior to most of what is out there today. YUM!

Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Ethan,
Smooth, sweet, with only a hint of burn on the swallow. Top Tier Rum, and definitely one to sit and sip on while contemplating the finer things in life.

Lovely easy rum beautiful with coke
Bumbu The Original Rum
Adam,
Best Rum I’ve ever tasted, not even close. Bought a bottle on the hunch that it would be something special and 1) I was right, 2) I will be getting my hands on some more. Do yourself a favor and grab a bottle for yourself.
Bumbu The Original Rum
Tom,
Lots of vanilla, very smooth. My wife’s new go-to for Cuba libres
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Tom,
One of my favorite daily drinker rums. El dorado is top shelf but this is a good daily Caribbean vibe Rum = island time all the time
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Jana,
I liked it in a frozen strawberry daiquiri and a rum punch. It wasn't great mixed with soft drink. I'm not a big drinker, so I'm just trying to find out what I like.
Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy Rum
Craig,
Very good flavor, not quite as sweet as I had hoped. Easy on the tongue and nice, long finish. Very nice sipper and wouldn't waste the flavor in mixers.
Dictador XO Solera Insolent Rum
Terese,
Very nice to sip. Smooth with a vanilla/caramel tone.
Pusser's British Navy Gunpowder Proof
Cieran,
I have had this in the virgin islands, by far the best navy rum available.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva
Shayne,
Excellent, smooth rum. It is not spiced, just how rum is supposed to be. I highly recommend Diplomatico! If you're not a fan of Rum, try this one, you will be.
La Hechicera Fine Aged Rum
Andrew,
Deliciously complex without too much sweetness.
Dictador 12 Year Old Solera System Rum
Richard,
I have been looking forward to this bottle since I got some in my last tasting box. Thoroughly enjoyable run. A little pricey but worth it.
Ron Zacapa Solera 23
Jeff,
Love it! Great recommendation from a friend down in Miami, who said this is a local favorite. Has a bit of a smooth bourbon-like taste.
Flor de Caña 18 Year Old
guest,
Amazing! I usually drink it neat with an ice cube and orange peel. Love it!
