Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The Duppy Share Caribbean rum is produced using a combination of 3-year Jamaican and 5-year Barbados rums. Both are aged in bourbon barrels and brought to London for bottling.
The name 'Duppy Share' comes from Caribbean folklore where the dark spirit 'duppies' take their share of rum from distilleries, similar to the traditional term 'angel’s share' when rum is lost due to evaporation during the aging process.
One of my top 3 rums - the use of the Barbadian and Jamaican rums makes this blend particularly versatile. The fire and punch of the Jamaican rum gives it that extra kick needed for ginger-based cocktails, while the Barbadian rum rounds the taste so it doesn't overpower other aromas and tastes. This roundness also makes it very enjoyable neat, or on the rocks. Would recommend this to both those starting out their foray into rum, and those with an already developed palate.
Nice taste easy to drink, gave me some mind bending dreams though 🤷♂️
Very nice Rum to sip in the evening with a nice coffee and cigar
In the whisky world, the angels take their share of whisky from the casks maturing it. In the Caribbean, it's the mischievous Duppy spirits that travel from island to island, taking their share of rum from the casks. This legend is where the stylish Duppy Share Caribbean Rum takes its name. It's made from a blend of bourbon-barrel-matured 5 year old rum from Barbados and 3 year old rum from Jamaica. A bright, bold and altogether very handsome rum.
Nose: Green banana, cinnamon, slightly oily, caramel.
Palate: Sultana and raisin, followed by vanilla and a hint of brine.
Finish: Lasting brown sugar, ginger and fresh lime.
2nd best rum I've ever tasted, very popular at Rumbq
Funny how some people mistake uncoated real rum as "artificial". No doubt the nose gives of some of the classic Jamaican funk, which is very aromatic, fruity and slightly fermented. Combined with the more subtle, but also fruity and lightly oaky barbadian profile, it all starts to get very interesting. I love the nose. It's bustling with exotic notes of pineapple, banana, mango and peaches. It's slightly sweet with an underlying woody spiciness. The taste delivers with a lightly bodied, elegant and smoothe rum that retains an interesting and very flavourful profile with subtle fruity notes, descretely woody spiciness and a little hint of the fermented Jamaican funk. The Jamaican/barbadian combination works supremly in my book. At this price it's a real steal for a very sippable rum.
When I pulled out the cork you are hit with a string dusting aroma. Fantastic with ting.
Often the marketing claims are not backed up with a good product. Exactly the opposite is true here. Flavourful Rums sourced from credible producers makes this a great Rum at a sensible price.
Lovely fruity spiced taste. Absolutely love this Rum
Pretty new to all this, but so far this is one of my favourite tipples!
Nice mix of spices, delicious on ice or with a mixer.
I went into this one with low expectations after reading some of the reviews on here. I was presently surprised to find that it's a very pleasant rum, both neat and with Coke. I haven't tried it with Ting or ginger beer yet, but don't anticipate problems.
Starts with a fairly fruity flavour, bananas, mangos and peaches, then ends with a rich brown sugar finish.
Good stuff. Perhaps not the best I've ever had, but in fairness I've had a fair number at this point and it's among my favourites.
Prijemny karibsky rum. Trosku stiplavejsia chut po alkohole, ale nie agresivna.
It's a nice simple dark rum. Not too sweet, which I like, but not spicy enough for my taste.
Great for cocktails.
Easy to drink. It's drinkable pure or on the rocks but it doesn't feel too premium so I guess it would also work with coke.
This was a pleasant surprise. Not only did I have a bottle which I enjoyed but found a duppy share tent at winter wonderland in Hyde park which had created a lovely hot rum punch. I enjoyed best with ginger beer. And it didn't carry too much of a Jamaican kick which meant it was also enjoyable for me over ice.
Young rums from Barbados and Jamaica have been blended to make this pretty fair juice. It presents with both an initial soft sweetness and a fiery follow-through. Fruit and spice abound. Although it's not a top-tier rum, it's perfectly adequate as a mid-level sipper and mixer.
A refreshing rum, that in my opinion should be used for cocktails or lightly mixed.
40% ABV. Mmmmm, an aged Jamaican and Bajan blend? Sounds delicious!
The Jamaican immediately delivers with light but unmistakable funk right off. The taste was just a bit too harsh for me to enjoy too much neat, but I imagine this would be stellar as a go-to mixer for cocktails. This plus a cute/clever name and appealing design makes it fairly attractive.
Compare it to Appleton Estate Signature/Reserve (also a pot/column blended rum).
Update 12/17: Very dry nose. Not unlike an agricole vieux. Grassy, briny. Similar palate. Slight hint of funk.
This is one of 24 rums "Drinks by the Dram" given to me as a present.
Never heard of this, and honestly the name didn't impress me much. So, "never judge a book"...and all that.
So, on to the review. Light color with a pleasant slightly spicy nose. ( I get that "funk" others have mentioned, but not unpleasant). First sip-big mouth feel, cinammon and other spices, a lot of alcohol burn and finish. I don't love this as a stand alone sipper, but suspect it would be terrific with some tonic as it has tons of body and flavor. Not overly sweet. I'd give it a 6.5 if I could, but will settle on a 7.
If I'm honest I was drawn to the bottle, but this has turned out to be very pleasent. Smooth enough to drink on it own but enough flavour (just) to have with a mixer (their recommendation is bitter lemon which isn't my usual choice but works well).
I really enjoyed this simply mixed with coke and while this did raise the sweetness of the drink it was very moreish. I tried some on its own and with a touch of ice melting into it, both providing a smooth and warming, if unexciting, experiences.
At £22 for what, for me, is essentially a mixing rum it is a tad expensive but I will be buying it for that express purpose again.
velmi zajímavý rum, který až velmi připomíná whisku.
Nejvíce bych přirovnal k jamesonu. - omlouvám se za až tak subjektivní přirovnání :)
Chuť velmi vyvážená a jemná.
Ale celkový dojem je lehce slabší.
Smell and taste is light, with hints of wood and vanilla. Finish is lightly sweet and fruity with citruses notes
