Wow, save your money. I was underwhelmed by this Rum.
Bought it because it was a great looking bottle and told it was as good as an El Dorado 12yrs. Beleive me, It's not even close.
It would be an OK Rum if the price was in $19-$20 range but not at the price $30+ range

I've never heard of it. Let me know when find a bottle of Kirk & Spock Rum, though. I'd buy that.

I find it interesting that you don't care for it Longboard. I bought it two weeks ago in Florida and was pleasantly surprised by it... In a good way. Granted, I have only recently begun to expand my rum pallet and my appreciation for the finer varieties, but I found it to be very smooth with lots of vanilla and honey notes. I have not compared it directly with Eldo 12, but I rather enjoyed it on it's own merits.
I guess this calls for another tasting... Oh, darn.
Cheers and aloha!
