I visited a friend over the holidays and she had a bottle of this she had gotten as a gift. I seldom drink but had occasionally enjoyed rum and cokes with my mom while playing scrabble so my friend suggested we have a couple and play a game.
I've not tried a great variety of rums so my knowledge base is limited, mom usually drank captain morgans reserve or ronrico, she liked dark rum.
This stuff completely leaves them in the dust. rum was always just a variation of alcohol to me, I also used to drink whiskey and cokes with my dad and I didn't have a preference across the two until now.
This has a lovely rich molasses like sweetness, with ronrico or captain morgans you really don't get that cane sugar taste, this has it in spades, along with other flavor nuances that made my tongue go "oooo" in delight! I usually mix rum in coke but this is so lovely I've actually sipped it straight like whiskey over ice. fantastic stuff!
I live in a very rural area where the lone liquor store basically carries budwiser, budwiser and budwiser, jack daniels, southern comfort, canadian mist and a lot of crappy schnapps and cheap wine. Fancy for them is crown royal. I liked this rum so much I sought it out online and forked over for the shipping (ouch...I'm on disability and a tight budget, but as little as I drink I thought hey, I deserve to have something truly wonderful when I do!) I will most definitely order again, I wish now I had ordered two but I did not know how much it would increase the shipping by and I only had so much money budgeted back for treats.
