Recommendable to most
Just incredible for the price, if I could only drink 1 rum again, it would be this. Downside is its possibly a bit sweet for the hardcore rum nerds, and hard to acquire outside of Australia
I liked this. Would have bought it under most circumstances after trying a friend's, but then tasted it alongside the small batch reserve and preferred that one. Now I'm wondering if I made the right choice
This one is not as sweet as Bundaberg Red for example, but you can still feel some sweet notes from port barrels which makes it very interesting. Very nice to drink neat, but not excellent.
I had an amazing opportunity to try a dozen different unopened Bundaberg's with my Aussie colleague last year and the Small Batch Vintage Barrel is one smooth rum. Has a lot of whisky like flavor profile and a bit of a afterburn at the end, but out of all the Bundy's I had a chance to try out, this was one of the smoothest of them all. Very close to the 10 year old Bundy in flavor profile.
I get the port taste from the barrels. It's about the only thing that keeps me interested. It's not terrible but it's not nice enough to drink neat and too expensive to mix. It's joins the ever growing list of rums these guys are pushing out as part of a seemingly never ending market push. Save your money and buy the solera. It is exceptional and theses all batches really aren't that small.
This is a very nice rum , 8 yrs old then finished in 100 yr old port barrels. Very sweet but not artificial. A bit spicey with honey taste in the background , excellent long finish , a big port influence which I like , 7.5 overall.
