English Harbour 1981 rum was produced in Antigua in 2006 after maturing 25 years in used whisky and bourbon barrels.

Recommended by the owner/bartender at the Occidental Lounge. Easily became one of my two favorite rums. A delightful mixture of strong oak and caramel.

If it would not be so dry it would have been 10 for me. It wins on briefing for at least 20 minutes.

Fără glume proaste, un rom corpolent, serios, arome distincte, curat, fin și bogat. O alegere corectă.

The bottle is cool in a classic way. 1981 is the year I was born. If I hadn't been going through a restrained phase I probably would have just bought the bottle but decided to sample it first.

I'm glad I did as even with strong mental incentives to love this I just didn't.

The smell is very interesting and varied but just doesn't follow through into the taste which is just mainly harsh.

I tasted this back to back with the rum nation Panama 21 which just totally blew this away.

Beautiful rich copper colour with rum spice, smoke and orange smell is an invitation to taste. Smooth smoky, dry wood taste, hints ofroasted cashew and espresso. All this followed with long finish with rolling tobacco at the end.
Not the cheapest but very worth trying.

J'ai eu l'opportunité de commandé cette bouteille à un tarif intéressant et j'ai donc sauté sur l'occasion connaissant la réputation légendaire de ce rhum. J'ai attendu la bonne occasion pour l'ouvrir et je dois l'admettre : j'ai été très déçu ! La première chose qui m'a choqué est son côté très gras, avec cette sensation huileuse sur la langue. Ensuite je l'ai trouvé très linéaire et n'ai pas découvert de grande complexité malgré l'âge. Bref à confirmer lors d'une seconde dégustation mais pour le moment c'est un grand regret.
