1931 82nd Anniversary rum is the first addition by St Lucia Distillers to celebrate the first distillery in St Lucia the Dennery Distillery, which was founded in 1931
The 82nd Anniversary of 1931 is a combination of 9 casks from 3 pot stills and 1 coffe still that were aged in either port or American oak casks from 1999 on. After combining the vintages the final rum is lightly filtered before bottling.
Tasted all their rums, nothing stood out except for a not front runner. nothing tasted as if it had been manipulated so i am guessing you are getting their true flavor.
C'est le genre de rhum j'aime savourer lentement, un nez agréable des saveurs qui persistent dans la bouche tout est bien balancé avec une belle longueur en bouche. J'ai donné 8 comme cote mais pourrais être plus, j'attend d'y regoûter à un autre occasion...
Ordered 2 bottles of St. Lucia 1931 rum under the impression I was purchasing the black label version, as advertised on the website. I must say that I was disappointed when I received the teal version as it is the only version that contains added sugar. Since I prefer dry rums I was apprehensive but the fact that this is bottled at 43% ABV helped get over the sweeter side of the rum.
1931 rum is definitely a quality rum regardless of the version and I am enjoying it in spite of my preference for dry rums. Well done.
Robe foncée. J'ai été déçu de ma première expérience avec ce Rhum, mais par après j’ai appris à l’apprécier. Gros côté sur le tabac et épice avec un nez sur la banane. Sec, bonne complexité avec une finale sur le caramel. Par contre, alcool assez présent pour un rhum de ce prix
Mange smagsnuancer, som gør den lidt forvirrende. Desværre føler jeg, at jeg står lidt tilbage med en smag af røg og måske også lidt lakrids. Tror jeg havde sat forventningerne lid for højt.
Sugar: estimated 18 GPL. Another winner from the 1931 lineup. This one is sweeter than the 81st version but has a similar full bodied flavour and aroma. Pleasing aromas of leather, tobacco, oak and caramel with maybe a trace of chocolate perhaps. Tastes of honey, vanilla, oak, baking spices with a trace of smoke. Well balanced with a smooth and lasting warmth. Aside from the sweetness factor, this is an old time rum blend of various aged rums. I have no idea of the ages used but the blend works. Some similarities to the Angostura 1824, but I say this rum is a better buy. Well worth having in your collection.
1931 4th edition - complex, rich, strong flavours bursting with spices and warmth, when I am a little older I might be mature enough for this (im 45 next month!) Lovely colour and sweetness, a little heat on the finish but a bloody full mouth of lushness.
Have heard a lot of this high rated rums, but way to much barrel tate for me, where is the sweetness typical to rum ?? and would like more deepth aswell.
I ordered the 1931 81st Anniversary Rum, but was shipped the 82nd Anniversary, which is much lower rated as of this review (7.38 for the 82nd vs 8.60 for the 81st). However, I am quite impressed with the 82nd anniversary!
This has notes of sugarcane, oak, vanilla, and honey. Very smooth for a 43%abv rum.
I think this is a very good rum, and a very good value at only $61.99 (Mission Wine & Spirits, 2015). Definitely worth a try!
All and all I like this stuff but it doesn't wow me.
It is very simplistic and smooth.
The one thing I don't like is it is hard to smell or taste anything else but cinnamon
It almost reminds me of when we were young and we mixed tequila and goldslogger together.
hopefully I will get a chance to try the other 3 some day
To be honest i'm not a fan of added sugar in a rum. I like my rum sweet and can't say that I can tell that this rum has added sugar. I just hate the idea of adding sugar in rum.
That being said, it is a nice enough rum. the nose is good, the taste, well I don't really like the smokiness. Aftertaste is decent.
I know people that love this rum, it's just nor really for me.
to the 1931 (1st edition). Still quite funky and a little vegetal in some ways but is slightly more refined and seems to have blended a little better.
Still not as good as I was expecting though
