molasses. dry rum.
i´ve tried this rum in berlin directly from alexander kong from worthy park. great guy, great rum.
typical jamaica notes. fruit. pepper. creamy, mild. i made it very warm in my hand, so do this too, if you want the real taste! ;)
if i understood it right, they will relaunch it under worthy park label.
This Rum is stored in 4 years and 40% strong. It feels mature with some body and ii is very much Jamaica style Rum. Okay Rum!
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.
Aged 4 Years in used Jack Daniels barrels
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.
Info: 50% ABV. Mostly 4 years old, with a little bit of 8yo. Mostly WPL marque. 60-119 g/hL AA (I think?) for the unaged distillate. Caramel color added for batch consistency. Aged in Brown-Forman bourbon barrels.
Flavor profile: Banana, but also a high amount of astringency and a cherry cough sleep flavor I don't care for. The palate is more approachable and vanilla-forward.
A great Jamaican mixer, but not my favorite (nor in my top 5). I love Worthy Park, but this one was a bit of a let-down.
Note: this is likely the same rum as the following entries:

- https://www.rumratings.com/brands/5278-worthy-park-gold (pre-"Rum-Bar" label)
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.
Intense fruity aroma.
Taste is also friuty with bananas dominating accompanied with cask tones.
Very smooth and round when sipped, but it should be great mixer too.
For the price I was expecting this to be purely a mixer. However the 4 years aging did ther job. Its perfectly fine to sip on its own and be enjoyable. It can't beat sippers in the much higher price range, but its a good experiece. Will be seeking out more Worthy Park Estate rums!
