First of all, this is a 5y old rum without added sugar/caramel, so it is pretty dry compare to the usual "premium" rums. It is finished in Kentucky bourbon barrels.
That said, it is pretty smooth with no after burn, which is a 10 for that kind of rum.
The nose is amazing, notes of chocolate, coffee and grilled bananas.
The taste then will give you a hint of vanilla, but then maybe the bourbon finishing is a bit too present for me to feel more aromas,
Overall, best 5y old rum I have tested so far. Very nice rum for an even better price, fair you said? ;)

as most rum brands strive to reach premium by slotting longer aged liquid to make deep character, it's rather uncommon for a good rum to come from a single digit years of aging. mass produced products can benefit from their available vast sources of liquids to blend but small craft brands must strive for a little differentiated character of their own. this rum affords such with only short 5 years of aging but shows great potential if aged few more years. rather good choice if you are into organic ingredients, fair trade certifications and small batch craft rum.

I recently spotted bottles of Fair Gold 5 yr Rums at our local liquor stores and was intrigued by this product from Belize. Upon reading reviews on Rumratings and learning that this product does not contain any added sugar, I decided to splurge ($55 CAD) and try it for myself.

My initial impression was that of a dry rum similar to most Bajan rums yet, with a natural sweetness as opposed to rums altered with added sugar or other additives, with distinct notes of vanilla and oak. In spite of its young age, I found this rum to be very smooth, enjoyable and unique (to me). Being fairly new to the rum world and unfamiliar with the taste of bourbon, this unique flavour may very well be a result from aging in bourbon barrels as reported by other reviewers.

In my view, this rum is indeed a good sipper and I now wish older offerings were available for purchase in my area. Well done.

It has a distinctive taste, You can feel the purity of the rum. When we talk about the taste You can feel, This rum has a diffrent approach from the classic rum producers. If it would just stay for a bit longer in properly aged barrels, a great finnesse would acompany the allready rich taste. You can only love or hate this rum, but for me it was a pleasant surprize.

A 5.5 on my scale. A little bit of oak. A lot more burn than I would have liked at the end. Mixed okay. Co-op grown in Belize. Wonderful motto: Think Human, Drink Fair.

This is a simple, ok rum of good quality. Nothing to go on and rant about, but it is an honest rum. vanilla, bourbon spices, wood. No added sugar, thank God.
