While raiding my buddy's teetotaling father's liquor cabinet some years back, we discovered an old unopened bottle of this shoved into the back behind the mostly empty Jacks and Absoluts and such. The label looked completely different than today's. "Extra Older," if you will. Not having had much rum besides stock Bacardi and Captain M here or there, this was a delicious surprise. Complex smooth mellow sugar banana deliciousness! It was a true find and is wonderful to sip, maybe with a stone or two. Haven't mixed it, but I'm sure it would make a good rum cocktail exceptional...YAY VERILY

I first had this in a mojito in a bar in Sydney and it blew me away - I had to go back and find the same bartender to discover what rum he used!! Even in a cocktail, it stood out massively!! Delicious

This got to be one of the very best spirits in the world today, not that i've tasted all of the best, or even close but this puts the bar sooo high. Watta Rum... And for the price a real bargain

As a rum drinker for many years, of Trinidad origin, I have tried many, discarded many, and would say that this is amongst my favourites along with Santa Theresa 1376, Diplomatico Reserva, Pampero Anniversario, English Harbour 7 yrs, ...to name a few. Smooth, great nose, not overly oaky. Good sipping rum, great with mixers (best with proper coca cola or ginger ale), a good export for Barbados, brings the sunshine out on a winters days...enjoy.

This is the real deal: smooth, consistent-like an old friend you know you can depend on. The flavor is complex with a smooth feel and a long finish. Every rum lover should have a bottle on hand.
