Tasty, but not quite great
Very underrating on Rum Rating, but not surprising because Mount Gay is too.
I don't know how many distillery are in Barbados, and Rum Nation do give the name of the distillery like for some other of their rums.
I would like to make a head to head with the MG XO, because I think it comes from MG.
Typical English type of rum, but whitout the high easter of the Jamaicans, I also found the same smoothness and richness of MG, very impressive for an only 10 years old without added sugar, once again, like MG.
Ce rhum traditionnel distillé en colonne et alambic a bénéficié d’une maturation de neuf ans dans d’ex-fûts de Bourbon, puis d’un affinage de 12 à 18 mois dans d’ex-fûts de Brandy.
Ce contact prolongé avec le bois noble lui a permis de développer toutes ses saveurs : de délicieuses notes mentholées, herbacées et réglissées, qui constituent le profil aromatique original de ce Barbados 10 ans.
Notes de fruits à coque, de caramel au beurre salé, de pomme cuite et de lait de coco complètent généreusement ce profil.
Une cuvée qui mérite toute votre attention…
Quite sweet and easy (only a little bit alcohol harshness). Fruity freshness (lemon) and oak with some smoke. A very nice one!
After letting it breath for a while, I am getting bits of banana, papaya and a hint of coffee! Not too sweet, with a hint of oak! Nice sipper after a long day.
I am in the jorney not only testing different Rum products and the country producing it. For my taste I like Barbados rum in general but of course it differs some. The one I hold high is the Rum Conpany Barbados Rum and therefore I like to compere to that one. Rum Nation 10 years is the class under Rum Company but not bad. I am sure that the 12 year will give better competition, I will come back to that.
