This rum is not made any more and has become hard to find. The metalic medallion label gives it a very classy tough IMO.

It is a very potent, aromatic blend of pot-stilled rums and is not to everyone's palate. I would give it a higher rating except that I picked up a slight phenolic burnt rubber aftertaste, everything before that is outstanding. Smith & Cross is a similar rum which is much easier to find and I don't get that aftertaste. Also the S&C is substantially less expensive, at less than $30 vs $40 for Sea Wynde if you can find it.

Not to be served to the faint of heart, wallet, pocketbook and/or stomach! This is a strong rum that hits on the sweet but also the peppery heat that hits your throat and chest. Oak, vanilla, coffee, tobacco, baking spice, maple syrup and pepper characterize this rum. Can be enjoyed neat, however, better suited with a splash of water or ice cube to tone down the heat and immense flavors. If being used in cocktails, cut down the rum amount by half, if using Sea Wynde again due to the strength and flavor composition of this Navy strength rum.
I believe this rum was last produced in 2011-12, October, so if you can find a bottle pick it up! Expensive now and Very hard to come by now...

Dufter hen af Whisky og brændt gummi

Smager også lidt af Whisky og cognac samt brændt mørkt chokolade.

Eftersmag, let sødme, mørk chokolade og mokka noter.

Its difficult to get your head around it at first but it's a classic pot still flavour and I love it. Small doses, but as soon as the bottle is open, you know about. Similar to Pussers and certainly gave me more of an appreciation for Pussers 15 when I went back to it!

46% ABV. A blend of Jamaican and Guyanese rums. Very dry and smokey. Little bit of funk. Also, briny (like a sea wind???). Medium finish.

A really fun rum with rough edges and character. Sadly, this bottle has long since disappeared from the market; I fear it was a little ahead of its time. Today, it would be in high demand. An intriguing sipper, and a first-rate top-shelf “navy style” mixer (Punch, anyone?). 8+

Update: re-visiting it with less-tinted glasses, I do see that it is a bit light, young, and harsh. This could work as a premium mixer, and still boasts some industrial notes that are hard to find these days (and any days, really). With a few more years of ageing, this would really be special. Still, it holds a special place in my heart :) 8--

Given I don't care for Pusser's Rum either, it could be that I don't care for British Royal Navy style rums. Couldn't find a way to finish the bottle after trying it. That is not a problem I typically have...

Ja, im ersten Eindruck hart, wahrlich , insbesondere im Vergleich zu sonst gängigen weichen Vertretern seiner Art.
Aber!, als Begleiter einer gepflegten Zigarre, mäßig in winzigen Schlücken ist er mir immer wieder lieb. Herb, rau, dunkle Schokolade, Holz und Rosinen . . wie in kalt-feuchter Nacht mit guten Freunden auf einer Klippe an einem Lagérfeuer sitzen, vorn Warm, der Rücken kalt, der Wind bläst einem niselige Seeluft und beißenden Rauch ins Gesicht . . manchmal einfach schön.

In all fairness, this was one of the first craft rums I tried. So while it comes off as abrasive to some, it was a great bridge for me to get into rum as a Scotch and bourbon drinker because it has strong oak notes, but also the unmistakable molasses sweetness of rum. Because it is still aged in part in pot stills near the sea, I feel as though the rum imparts the hard-to-describe, but pleasant taste of the sea and the Caribbean.

I like the idea behind this Rum, but it is a bit too heavy for me. Comparable to the Smith and Cross Navy Strength Rum, which is also not a proper sipper. NOTE: Gave it an upgrade from 7 to 8, the Sea Wynd fits better to the others bottels, which got a "8".
