Hi Popol Z

Your comment surprised me as I did not recall mentioning anything about the 21 rum being smooth.

"I yearned for the sweetness I could not find, but realized that the sharp orange peel and more bitter oak flavours would not allow this sweetness to assert itself. The promise of brown sugar spices and cinnamon bun deliciousness was never realized, and instead a complex bevy of bittersweet oaky flavours held dominance...."

That comment from my review seems to match your observations. (And I like the MBL much better too and even the Appleton 12 to my mind was superior.)

Please let me know where I used the word "Smooth" in my description because as I skimmed my review I could not find it. (I am tired so maybe I missed it.)
