Tasty, but not quite great
N- Blackforest banana mousse cake garnished with strawberry and berry compote with drizzles of rich molasses, cotton candy floss sweetened hot coffee to go with it too. Sounds sweet? Indeed, but is not just sugar despite the rather intense cola sweetness. Whiff of strong nutmeg and chinese herb oilmen to keep it fresh. (85/19)
P- Not as fresh and charm as the aroma, thin over smoky oak, herb oilmen still presents and keep it quite comfort on palate. But then soapy and menthol gum emerge that feel rather artificial. (82/17)
F- Short, diluted oak juice, soft, harmless with lingering red fruits. (83/18)
Weighted Rate- 72pt

The label in itself makes this rum earning its place at my rum shelf, but I really like it. It’s a very good everyday rum to bring to the table with lots of bananas in nose and taste as well as in the afterburn. Grenada rum is more or less impossible to find in Sweden. Bought this one and a Westerhall from UK.

First of all I love the cloth sack it comes in - Nice! That said the bottle label is nice too - I'm a sucker for pictures of old time sailing ships.
This rum has a beautiful golden colour with a slight reddish hue. It has a nice syrupy smell accompanied by spices and vanilla with only a hint of alcohol. Sipping it straight was harsh at first, but it actually quite smooth with only a mild burn. This rum makes an excellent mixer with cola - A perfect light balance of spice and fruit (I thought of citrus, although I'm reading people say banana - Hmnnn).
This is quite a special one with a pretty distinct scent of banana in the nose. Positive: tastes less artificial than Bumbu (also banana). Not very complex though. A bit alcoholic and sharp, not very well balanced.
Serve it on the rocks on a hot summer eve.
This is a decent rum that is hard to come by in the States. Usually, I can only find this in the U.K. Clarkes Court is the largest distillery in Grenada and uses dark molasses to produce this lovely golden colored rum. Smooth with notes of oak, various fruits and spices linger long after the last sip.
Interesting tidbit is that Clarkes Court uses the old technology of steam to run and produce their rums.
Enjoyable neat or mixed...
Truly the fruitless rum I've ever tasted. Can be difficult to find but well worth picking it up if you can. Very unique from other rums. One of the lightest I've experienced as well.
