Tasty, but not quite great
So this is cockspur 12, not 12 year old, its 12. Something that average age of rums in the this bottle is about 12 year old. But 12 years in Caribbean islnads is long time in maturation. This is very well matured and smooth, Something like aged bourbon or cognac, not as fine as cognac, not so big as bourbon. But this is very good and quite cheap. Real bargain and high quality. Not very rummy rum, but I really recommend this, if you like whisky and cognac also. But if you hate all other things and drink only rum, then ... I don't know...
Big, soft and true to it's heritage....Rustic but never rough. Warning: Once you start sipping... you realize you can finish the botttle in one sitting (if you have a few friends join you...)
Got it as a specially priced 50% off closeout item for $18 US!
Rates a 9 rather than an 8 because it is the best value aside from Flor de Cana 4 year.
I'm going to try it in the 1939 Don the Beachcomer Mai Tai recipe. (Previous winners as the foundation of this classic are: Barbancourt, Bacardi 8 and Eldorado 12)
This Bajan rum is classic Barbados. It is simply amazing. Well Balanced with aromas and flavors of smoky oak, leather, chocolate and citrus. You can really taste the bourbon barrels it was aged in but it's not overpowering. This is a simple but complex rum (if that even makes since) that is one of my favorite sippers. Cheers
This is a great rum from Barbados. Huge flavor here. This is fantastic. Well worth the cost. My only issue was a broken natural cork when opening. If you like loud flavored rum with a strong start to finish this is it.
Nice arome with warm tones, confirmed also during first taste. Full complex and smooth body, with shery tones, almost not burning. Aftertaste not bad, but very short.
The nose is very nice tropical fruits mix, with pronounced coconut, the body is light, sweet, but without any sugar added, full of tropical fruits, some toffee, playful and sexy composition. For this price, and someone who loves Bajan style - this is a must-have. Very good sipper, I guess it would make a nice mixed drink too - but the bottle disappeared too quickly, maybe next time.
Amber colour. The nose is on chocolate, the wax of old furniture. Light notes of banana, candied fruit, toffee, coffee, cherry with alcohol. On the palate, it is very fine, delicate, always chocolate, tobacco. It is also acidic with bitterness. It's not very long and the final is on red fruits, brown sugar, caramel. Beautiful discovery, in line with Mount Gay rum but with his own style.
Typicky Barbadosan. V chuti spociatku sladky (avsak bez pridaneho cukru), potom suchy, melasa, ovocny a lahky. Velmi dobre sa pije, uz som si objednal dalsi :) Za mna urcite 8+ a viac
Pro mě excelentní vůně, poté co jsem ochutnal přes 80 druhů rumu začínám oceňovat výš ty bez cukru, díky kterého se kryjí neduhy, podobně jako u vína. Jen proto, že mi MountGay XO chutná o něco více a dostal 9 bodů, dávám Cockspuru 8+. Snad jen o chvilku déle v sudu a byla by alkoholová stopa jemnější. Což mu tady vytýkají ti co mají raději sirupy. Ztratil by ale svůj úžasný charakter nedoslazovaného rumu. Výborný rum za skvělé peníze.
