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.
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.
Mixture 3yo and 5yo rums, bourbon barrels.
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.
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.
