Reviewer's opinion

  • This Barbados rum opens with typical notes of caramel, vanilla, spices, and fruits, including coconut, but isn't overly exuberant. On the palate, it's very smooth, with hints of caramel, coconut, orange zest, and gentle spices. The moderately long finish introduces earthier notes like tobacco and a slight smokiness, balanced by wood, caramel, and chocolate. Overall, it's a smooth rum designed to offer something different from the usual Hispanic profile while still being accessible.
  • Deliciously balanced. Unfortunately, a bit too sweet and not intense enough for a high rating.
  • Coconut, milk chocolate, and cream toffee. Almost like there's cream in it.
  • Fresh nose, not too aggressive. Pleasant, round mouthfeel.
  • Very pronounced vanilla... Good but can become cloying.
  • Flavored rum as I love them! I recommend this rum, which has a slight resemblance to Don Papa, in my opinion.
