Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Palate: pretty dry, almost harsh, some hints of beer (?) and maybe some hints of oak. At least it gives a warm feeling 😉 one extra point for that.
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.
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.
Enjoyed two glasses of Worthy Park Rum-Bar Gold rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design looks pretty dull and low end. Extremely strong glue and funk straight to your nose and palate. Super strong burn at the end. Even mixing this, you get the funk shining through.
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.
