Excerpt: Perhaps it wasn’t such a good idea to kick off the Barbados tour with a filtered white 3 year old. It was thin, watery, too weak, and the tastes struggled to get out and make themselves felt. Maybe it’s the charcoal filtration that takes out some of what I like in my rums. The profile is there, you can sense it, just not come to grips with it…it’s tantalizingly just out of reach, and like the Doorley’s XO, it lacks punch and is simply too delicate for my personal palate. For its price point and purpose it may be a tough rum to beat, mind you, but my personal preferences don’t go there. And having had white rums from quite a few makers who revel in producing fierce, joyous, in-your-face palate shredders, perhaps you can understand why something this easy going just makes me shrug and reach for the next one up the line.
Excerpt: It stands up better in more tropical based drinks where the oak and spiciness give the drinks a little less sweetness. It goes nicely in a Daiquiri as well. So if you are more sophisticated than me you may find more use for this
Excerpt: This is incredibly mild as far as spirits go. There isn't a ton going on here. This seems like its best in a cocktail paired with another bolder rum, to be honest. I don't hate it, but its a bit like Ambien in a bottle.
