Nice smell and reasonably priced. Sweet notes of candy most notably caramel with similar color. Smooth on rocks or with coke. Very good overall. I was overlooking the Gulf of Mexico when I was enjoying this and I believe the setting was as good as the taste

Afrohead's original 7 year blend is a sweet treat with a little bite at the end. Not too cloying sweet, but a bit of a candy rum to my taste. Some say it is really Angostura 7 Year. This was my first Trinidadian Rum and it grew on me quickly. Might nave to make it down to Trinidad for Carnival if this is what we will be drinking!

Some interesting aged flavors, a hint of sugar and some oak. Mellow, easy to drink on the rocks.

Pretty good rum. Just ok as a sipping rum. It’s an awesome mixer.

Recommended and I wanted to like it, but found nothing great and nothing fully redeeming. Taste middle road alcohol burn middle road, flavors mild to lacking,

Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Afrohead rum bottle and label design looks nice and unique. Light golden color from artificial flavoring. Strong alcohol, wood and caramel to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Whisky lovers can add 2 points, but this is not my cup of tea.

Smooth at the start and simply rum finish. Not spiced not sugary just rum with a bit of sting. Nice colour and bottle. Good to mix.

I missed out on a chance to picked up a bottle or two of John Watling's rum while in the Bahamas over the summer. While looking for a bottle of the Watling's, which I seem to be hearing it is not available in the US, I came across a bottle of the Afrohead. This is my first real bottle of rum and attempts at being a civilized drinker. I came from the vodka world of shot after shot. I thoroughly enjoyed this bottle and must say I rank it above the Pyrat XO I replaced the empty with.

We bought this at the Sandestin food and wine festival earlier in the year( yes I was surprised I owned it the next day) - a long story in itself.
It mixes well, the girls liked it a lot, no problems.

First off I am shocked to have found this locally. I am more shocked to find it in a local Winn Dixie liquor store where anything exotic just cannot be found.

I have to admit up front that I am really fond of the logo. Reminds me of the art found in the late 60's/early 70's especially in the animations for the old Electric Company shows on PBS. Makes me a bit nostalgic.

However, I digress...

I am glad I did find it. I reviewed their 15-year rum after getting a bottle at a Total Wine and More store in Jacksonville, Florida. This rum is aged about half as long at the 15-year.

It has a nice amber hue shifting to a golden color in the shallower portions of the snifter. It has a wonderful aroma in the snifter with noticeable vanilla extract tones. Nice.

The flavor is quite good. Definitely sweet and perhaps sugared a bit but really not cloyingly so. The vanilla flavor is noticeable and blends well with the oak tannins. A bit of butteriness and pepper flavors appear. Not much of a burn. Relatively smooth. Makes for a nice sipping rum as well as a mixing rum. Definitely a versatile rum that is delicious. I hope this rum becomes successful. It is excellent.
