Oi! I liked 10 cane. That's why I bought a second bottle. Not easy to come by here. Got #1 in Juneau and #2 in Utah.

Definitely as has already been noted by other members, anything made by Bundaberg. As we say of something awful tasting downunda, it would kill a brown dog. Plus if you overindulge you are likely to into a hyped up state from the excessive sugar content in the stuff! That's putting it mildly.

I know I've tasted some underwhelming premium rums over the years. But nothing else comes to mind as standing out right now. I may remember later perhaps as I ponder it more over a glass...

I found that quite nice. As usual, I hate the smell of agricole but love the taste. Unbelievably funky stuff. I think its great in a Ti Punch! That's the beauty of rum though, opinions differ.

For me, Pink Pigeon didn't hit the mark. All of the hype and style but I was a little bit disappointed by the flavour.

Unhappy disappointed

This is for sure a personal opinion , but for me it is the plantation Barbados.
It is too sweet . Not that sweet rum isn,t good!
There are plenty of sweet rums wich are good but this one has the sweetness
like it is not natural at all.

Well, I gotta say I was pretty disappointed in El Dorado Silver 6 yr. I'm a sipper, and it ain't what I was expecting. After reading Arctic Wolf's review, I see that Demerara were kind of aiming at the vodka market with this one. Guess I have to learn to mix.

For me of what I have tried in my inventory I would have to say Flor de cana 12 year. Many noted bloggers and rum enthusiasts swear by it but I just say no. The flavor did not really appeal to me.

had a similar reaction, don't find mount gay XO very exciting either. opinion on the forums seem to be split between those that like smoother, subtler flavors, and those that like stronger, richer flavors.

I just ordered this along with several other rums online as it was fairly cheap and not available around here. Ed Hamilton actually has an online review he did about this rum on this website on the reviews. He seems to find it "very sippable." I will follow up with my thoughts here when I get to it.

Iceberg was pretty bad as far as I'm concerned.
