Now this is some good stuff
No gimmick here... a smooth and tasty rum from Blackwell. Very slight bite, and great for sipping or mixing. Fairly priced, this rum comes in a cool 007 bottle. Maybe I am partial because I love the James Bond movies.
I thought this might be a movie gimmick but it's really surprising how good it is. Nose has some moleassses and some black pepper. Lovely molasses spice without cloying sweetness. Leaves a lovely caramel and green grass aftertaste like you sipped it ice cold after mowing the lawn. Really really fantastic. I've got another order of bottles in to sit on a few.
I was given a bottle of this 007 rum for Christmas. Forget all the packaging (which is rather nifty), this is a great rum. Being a bit keen on Jamaica, rum and James Bond, I thought this rum may be a case of all packaging and no substance, however this is a great rum. An excellent sipping rum. Smooth caramel, smoky flavours.
Great rum that is not overpowering, uncharacteristic of Jamaican rums in my opinion. Slightly pricey but flavour is sweet and worth the price I paid.
I think this one is the same juice as the cheaper Blackwells bottle.
The nose is quite complex and beautiful. I get dry fruits, blueberries, burned sugar and coconut.
Then some vanilla cookies, some molasses and dark wood.
The taste starts sweet with burned sugar, then blueberries and coconut with vanilla. It's tasty, at the end are some notes of young distillate.
The middle is already spicy, then sweet with caramel and some bitter notes of tannins. Then again pleasant with coconut and vanilla cookies.
The finish is spicy again with flavours of coconut, vanilla cookies and blueberry muffins.
There is the issue with the dilution and it could be older. It should have more strength and maturation. But it's better than many other rums in the price range
I would rate this one with 76 points.

i opened the bottle on new years eve with good friends and we were not disappointed. to be honest i didn‘t expect it to taste this good, very smooth and well balanced. and the black 007 bottle completes the overall impression. so i can clearly recommend it.
