Pirate’s Grog rum is produced in Honduras on the island of Roatan by blending various rums from around the Caribbean that have been aged up to 5 years in American oak casks.
The name ""Pirate's Grog"" heralds to the mixture of 90 proof rum and water known as grog, which was first rationed by Admiral Sir Edward Vernon to his ship's crew in the early 1700's.
Recommendable to most
Fantastic nose full of butterscotch, quite fruity, taste is clean with not many notes standing out - some light vanilla , almost no burn or spice. Short nice finish. I could imagine it would make a fantastic high-end mixer, as it is easy sipper as well especially considering the limited aging.
I've been sipping on the Golden for several years now. The first time was something quite new. I sipped it neat. I fell in love at first sip. It was smooth, no bite. It was soft, sweet, subtle, really easy. I usually drink bourbon, then scotch... neat. Now if I had one choice, it'd be this rum. Always exceptional. My son loves rum, would really love to be able to send him a bottle soon.
This has to be the tastiest rum I've ever tried. With over 10 years in the bar trade I have never come across one so smooth. The ageing in Bourbon barrels really help bring in the flavour tones of vanilla and raisins. Sipping or as an espresso rumtini. Winning
I was given this rum in a beautiful chest for my birthday, it even had a little scroll in the box which my hubby had written a nice happy birthday message on. Unfortunately it's been polished off already so I'm hoping bottle number two will be under the Xmas tree. We drank it neat most of the time but it also mixed really well with Cawston's pressed apple and ginger juice. I'd definitely recommend this rum to a friend :)
Even a sipper at a push if you enjoy the Pot Still Jamaican style
