Tasting Notes by Simon Difford (CLASS Magazine)
Clear, golden amber with polished gold highlights
Spicy apricot, ripe banana and vanilla with rum and raison ice-cream.
Fiery but velvety, honeyed palate with cooked fruit, ripe banana, toffee apple and sweet pastry notes overlaid with spicy oak - cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
Long dry oaky finish. Light-bodied but very rich and full-flavoured.

hot and short.... not a great combination
Doesn''t compare to Diplomatica. Doesn''t have Diplomatica''s sweetness.
Ice, XO and a splash of bitters will have you back on Dover or Rockley Beach. Perfect rum.
The best rum I have tasted and a favourite of mine since my first visit to Barbados in 1987. Smooth, rich flavour with a hint of bourbon hiding in the background. Great on its own but also superb with coke. A "pint of Bajan" is a must to quench that thirst. Recommended.
One of my favourite rums. Sip it on a Tuesday afternoon with some tropical fruit, brown sugar and your choice of junk food and half a bottle later you become ridiculously handsome.
Not a favourite rum, but I managed to polish off half a bottle one Saturday morning without realising. You get a brown sugar sweetness and some tropical fruit - its the junk food of the rum world (in a good way) and shouldn't be compared to 'sipping' rums, although its worth noting that half bottle vanished without mixer or ice.
You can taste the Carribean Sun! On a cold Winters night it warms the soul.
Another staple of mine! I have come to judge bars on their selection of rum and whisky. This is one of the marker bottles I look for along with Diplomatico ER. A very good rum for the price. If you like your sipping rum, get a bottle of this, El Dorado 15 and Diplomatico ER
