A 5.0 (at the time of my review) is really not doing this rum just. A very well balanced rum with a little character of its own. When it would have come from any other country you would call it an ester-ritch rum but being Jamaican it is actually rather mild on esters; they are certainly there but this is not Hampden, this is Worthy Park!
On the nose I get alcohol first (let it rest for a while) but then the sweetness of hot apple sauce hits me, along with other fruits like banana and passion fruit. It is slightly sourish in a pleasant way with floral notes.
On the palate it remains very fruity and floral, very sweet for a dry rum, with some licorice and other candy in there. A little vanilla and light woody tones are in the mix as well. Maybe the sweetest dry rum I ever tasted till now. It goes down very pleasant with a medium to long aftertaste that has a bit more wood (more sweet than bitter) to it.
A really nice rum that invites me to explore Worthy Park a bit more.
Beautiful nose - smell like flowers and tropical fruit. The taste is very similar although it goes away pretty quick and you're left with a bland fluid in your mouth. Still a pleasant experience overall.
Smoother than I expected for a WP. It’s not too heavy on funk but it’s certainly there. If it leans in any direction it’s towards tropical fruit. Good burnt cane finish. A very solid bottle of rum.
Day 20 from my Rum Advent calendar. Young rum from Jamaica, I expected a dry rum. Done but the rum is definitely young for my liking (4 years old).
Big funk. Not really my style. Much smoother than Hampden. Some banana and fruit. No real burn but plenty of bite. Short finish. Quality rum. A preponderance of funk is just not my personal preference.

100% Pot Still
Worthy park does not use dunder tanks, it relies on custom yeast strains and state of the art stills and technology
Nose: Buttered caramelized raisins, toffee, baking spice, and flambeed banana, not much hogo esters at all really.
Taste: Light hogo on the palate, strong toffee and flambeed banana, strong butter, and caramelized raisins and surprisingly sweet for unsugared rum, lots of baking spice, nicely mellow for bit stronger abv, decent touch of oak and vanillins on the back palate.
Finish: Mellow, lightly oaky with some vanillin.
Excellent lightly aged pot still from worthy park, very light on esters and hogo and not something i would really sip but as a mixer its one of the best in its class.
