Now this is some good stuff
Nice and fruity nose with vanilla, banana, chocolate and a little bit of oak. Perhaps a bit of coffee as well, as it heats up in my palm. There's a very pleasant and fresh sweetness to it.
It has a nice and light texture in the mouth and an overall delicate expression, typical of many bajan rum.. The flavorful palette fits my bill with notes of juicy tropical fruits, ripe banana, vanilla and rounded oak. The finish ain't no explosion, but very nice with a lingering fruity, coffee sensation. This is exceptional value, if your into the non-sweetened, but very flavourful bajan rum's. One of my favorite styles.
This little port cask experiment from mr. seale turned out just right and I do hope more of this kind is on the way.
Well that is if it is your style as some might find too much wood and too much port influence. But to me, coupled with the sweetness from the port wood, this is a fabulous rum. The rum itself isn't the most complex in the world, but all round this is a winner and at a very sensible price.
i smell coffee, dried fruit and some spice.
i taste coffee too, some raisins and some grape. pepper notes, marzipan.
10/10 - subtract 5 points if you love the sweet stuff
one of the best.. a clean, light rum with a lot of flavour. dried fruit and of course the coffee note from the port aging. a good real rum to show you the taste of aging in a port wine cask!
The aroma of port wine is immediately present and powerful, and so my senses were primed to taste aged port...but instead I got rum with very heavy port overtones. Now, I like port and I like rum, but not in the same glass. I don't feel that the flavors blended well to make one fine drink. Instead, there are two prominent and distinct profiles, and little harmony between them.
Notes of Peaches, Vanilla, even some Red Apple the rum also has a hint of red wine/port which runs through it.
"When sipped, the rum has quite a lot of oak. It’s very clean and smooth."
