I actually just picked up a bottle of this stuff last week.

My only comments in addition to the original post is that this is one of the only rums that I would call truly dry. It also has an acidic bite that tingles on the tongue, for me. And even though my login name might hint toward my bias, I most definitely detect a flavor much akin to Cruzan Black Strap in it. The taste of molasses in this rum is rivaled by few, such as Black Strap itself or Myers Dark.

I don't think this is a rum that would convert non-rummies, like Pyrat XO or Zacapa 23 might.

It's far from my favorite sipping rum, but like stated in posts above, its uniqueness is well worth having around, and definitely worth the price if you're at all serious about collecting fine rum.
