Default Barcelo Gran Platinum

During an excursion into the Barcelo destillery Quisqueya (near Juan Dolio) I managed to taste their new "Barcelo Gran Platinum".

I was told this rum was developed to be competition to the vodka. It was introduced to the market in August (if i understood well) This rum is aged 4 years. For me the rum had really strong alcohol smell. I have to say it reminded me on cheap vodka from supermarkets. The taste was also very vodka like with a hint of sugar cane and lemon at the end.

What do you think about this rum? Has anybody tasted it yet?
