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
It's not great, certainly wouldn't recommend it straight and almost always overpriced due to popularity that seems to be gained with a big marketing budget rather than being a good product.
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.
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.
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.
Very, very mild, no depth of flavour at all, just a generic weak rum taste with very little aroma. It is not a bad rum, but way overpriced for what you get. There are Rums ( e.g. Plantation, Barcelo ), in the same price range that wipe the floor with it.
Po marketingovej stránke je The Duppy Share veľmi podarený produkt. Originálna fľaša s peknou etiketou, rum ktorý ma svoj príbeh. Je to zmes 3-ročného jamajského a 5-ročného rumu z Barbadosu, ktorá zrela v sude po bourbone. Po naliatí a chvíľke postátia v pohári, zacítite dubové drevo, pražené mandle, možno nejaké ovocné tóny. Chuť je podľa mňa nevyvážená, na začiatku (hneď po prvom kontakte s jazykom) je dominantná horkosť, ktorá trvá a trvá. Až po chvíľke sa dá urobiť lepšia analýza rumu, lebo tá horkosť na začiatku je skrátka priveľa. Chuťovo veľmi priemerný rum, navyše nedotiahnutý do najlepšieho konca za relatívne veľa peňazí (cca 40€). Neodporúčam piť samotný, iba ak ako súčasť miešaného drinku. Veľká škoda.
I'd compare this to Doorly's XO in some ways, or maybe Doorly's 5 which I've not ad enough of as yet. They are not a million miles apart anyway. I'd say that this was sweeter than the Doorlys and that it had a more potent smell.
One of those rums, perhaps, that serves very well as a benchmark to bouce other rums off of, since it's good without being any more than that.
