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.
Tasty, but not quite great
The best of both. Lovely smooth buttery start to the taste on the front of the tongue, then followed by the kick of the pot still Jamaican. Two of the best distilleries in the world combined for a great rum. Tastes great in a daiquiri, over ice or with ginger beer and lime
You're gonna find better rounded aged expressions from accross the Caribbean, but at its killer price and looking and feeling as great as it does, if I had to give one rum to someone which showed how great the category is it would be this one...
Delicious. Finally a great rum with a beautiful bottle. Looks great on my home bar and an amazing gift.
The liquid has a kick but softens nicely - holds up well in cocktails and with ginger. Nothing artificial or sugary which is a bonus.
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.
Surprised at the poor reviews. This is a very smooth blend. Not sweet. Great body. Balanced with some bite. This is NOT Jamaican funk. Vanilla and wood. Nice oily, thick and rich. Definite sipper. Definitely a good rum.
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.
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.
