Finish: Long, sweet and easy-going!
A fantastic Rum from Peru, it is no surprise that it has won so many medals. I would recommend in a heartbeat to anybody who wants a good sipping rum for a good price!
This was one of the first bottles of sipping rum that I purchased, and after finishing it with glee I revisited it some 12 months later. It tastes like a sweetened rum, very much like the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, and it’s easily drinkable. Would I buy another bottle? Probably not as I prefer the complexity and subtle sweetness of the El Dorado 12. Though this is a good rum for those who enjoy sweet and not particularly complex rums.
