This rum is very good but you have to let it breathe for a long time. I tried it at 30 minutes vs 90 and it is damn smooth at 90. If you pour it and drink it immediately it is a harsh biting rum.

Not horrible, but not great in my opinion. Maybe Im just inexperienced but it tastes like an overpriced Doorlys. Dont splurge on it unless youre sure about what youre getting.

While this is a fine, well aged rum, the sheer level of sweetness puts it a notch below the best rums Ive had: El Dorado 15 & 21, Plantation, Zacapa XO, and Admiral Rodneys. Vizcaya is the dessert wine of high end rums, bursting with notes of vanilla and cream soda. Very subtle tones of the bourbon barrels it is aged in temper the candy like sweetness. This is a summertime, sitting outside with a bold cigar rum.

Products in the vein of alcoholic candy, such as Malibu, should not be called "rum". Why? Because of products like this, that occupy the same category. I'm comparing paupers to princes, but I think it stands that crafted spirits like Vizcaya Cask 21 demand to be considered apart from needless clutter in their own segment, and amongst the world's best in the realms of whisky or wine. The flavor profile of this rum is similar to spiced rums such as Foursquare and Doorly's XO, but this one bests those very solid rums without a second glance. Vizcaya Cask 21 is a stellar aged rum, of a quality that surpasses many others in the same price league. I easily rank it the best rum I've yet had. Whatever the formula used to create it, be it Cuban or Dominican, this is a rum that absolutely needs to be kept in any serious collection. The flavor is bold, the feel smooth, the color is classic, the bottle elegant, and the experience high-class. No serious rum collection is complete without this one.
