Bought me three bottles of this one some weeks ago. Tasted it April 30th to celebrate the forthcoming summer which is a tradition during this day in Sweden.
I made the tasting back to back against the Velier 2012 English Harbour.
In the nose I can recognize fruits, wood, smoke and some vanilla and chocolate.
In mouth and palate it’s very fruity, woody, flowery and intense with hints of orange and chocolate.
Overall it’s very intense, strong and complex
I can really recommend it especially if you feel sorry that you missed the Velier 2012 English Harbour edition you here can get a rum that’s about the same. I’m quite sure that I can’t separate them in a blind test.
Pictures: The two bottles tasted back to back out in the Stockholm archipelago & My ADL shelf by moment.

Ffffff

English harbour is not my favorite rum.
I know that many people like these bottlings. But I think the rum often has metallic aromas and some bitter substances from a column distillation. In addition, the rums are bottled too young in my opinion, with a longer aging they would be on a higher level.

Nose: Sweet nose with caramel, bourbon wood (vanilla), a lot of dry fruits (raisins, peach) and cinnamon. It's also a little bit flowery. Some metallic aromas are in the background, it indicates that it's a column still distillation. It's quite sharp, I can't stick my nose too deep in the glas. A hint of barrel aromas is also there (orange zests). Good nose, very sweet and almost too sharp.

Taste: Sweet start with caramel, dry fruits and metallic aromas (this is the weak point). The rum is sharp, the sharpness increases towards the middle and releases some tannins. I get more white oak and vanilla from the bourbon caks. It tingels in the mouth and continue sweet with many dry fruits and some bitter tannins. The finish is sharp, bourbon wood, vanilla, dry fruits (peach, raisins), some bitter tannins.

Aftertaste: dry fruits, bourbon wood, cinnamon

This rum has good aromas, it reminds me of the RA Belize rum. It has some weaknesses. It's too sharp and the metallic aromas with bitter substances are too present on the palette.
Column copper savalle still destillation means the most of the heavy aromas are killed. With some more aging this could became a very good rum.

Overall: 84 points

Sweetness: 3/5
Fruits: 3.5/5
Sharpness: 4.5/5
Complexity: 3/5
Value 58€: 3.5/5
