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.
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.

Body:artificial,strong alcohol,no-way to drink it straight up
Bottle:pharmacy like,etiquette pop-art
It's been a while I drunk such a "bad" rum...I could not finish even the one shot...Too artificial, too alcohol taste.
However I like the bottle and etiquette, reminds me pop-art style.
I didn't have much anticipation for this rum, but I have to say... It's quite good! Nose is spicy with a nice sweet and sour mixture. Taste has caramel, hazelnut, and molasses. Not hugely complete, but not harsh at all and easy to sip straight. Medium length finish is a let down as its slightly sour and lingers (not in a great way)
Spicy, slightly harsh. A bit like pusser's but smoother.
I haven't tried it but would be very good with ginger beer.
Still on my list to buy at some point when I have more shelf space but pretty low down.
The label is very cool.
The Duppy Share features a fruity and light aroma. Yet it is very spicy. Unpolished perfection?
2nd best rum I've ever tasted, very popular at Rumbq
When I first smelled the rum I thought it would be really strong and burn, but it actually goes down very smooth, nice taste but could maybe use some spices.
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.
