Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Just does not have the balance of other aged bajan rums. Doorleys is a better option imo. more available in the states for a reasonable price.
Dire que ce 12 ans va devenir un plantation Barbados vendu 3 fois Le prix 😫
Enfin on peut imaginer ...
Très bon Rhum pas cher, laisser respirer 10 bonnes minutes avant dégustation
Everythig in place and nothing really wrong or extraordinary.
To the nose: butterscotch, oranges, marzipan, vanilla, coconut
On the palette you get a strong dose of citrus fruits, dried fruit such as fig and date, tobacco and wood.
Very little burn on the back end, just enough to say your drinking rum. The flavor remains for a considerable amount of time. The citrus tens to be more prominent the longer the rum has a chance to breathe.
Žádný zázrak (kór s ohledem na deklarované stáří), ale zase rozhodně neurazil, i když další zcela určitě už nikdy více nepopiji.
Like average rum, nothing special neiher surprise, but still competitive.
again this was one of the first I tried and I don't think I really appreciated what I was drinking at the time. Keeping an eye open to get another bottle.
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)
My first review. I like this rum because it is not overly sweet, but has all the rum flavor you could ask for. It is smooth enough to sip on the rocks, yet inexpensive enough to allow mixing in drinks without grimacing. Found it being discontinued at the liquor store and scored a case.
Très belle surprise. Offert à Noël. Vidée au 31 décembre. Un régal sincèrement
Lovely as a smooth rum super probably better as mixer . .decent flavour on the palette
un nez agréable, doux sans être un sirop, je le bois seul ou avec légère dilution mais pas en cocktail
Good rhum, spicy in mouth, clear final, perfect with friends.
This is one of my favorites - smooth, great flavor. I definitely recommend this one.
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
Angenehm in der Nase, im Mund eine leichten Rauchgeschmack und Schärfe im Abgang.
À venir prochainement.............................
Un rhum britannique avec des notes rappelant parfois le Caroni, parfois le rhum traditionnel, mais avec une finesse moindre.
Des notes de pétrole, caoutchouc, mais aussi de caramel et de fruits exotiques en nez. Bouche légère, courte, moyennement sucrée, avec un peu de fruits. Finale courte.
Intéressant mais dispensable.
Nose : I smell some esters : very slightly "jamaican" I would say ? Mostly Alcohol at the beginning but let your glass breathe for a while and some better aromas will come. Taste : quite smooth, oaky/vanilla. I find the taste very different (and smoother ) from the nose which is always something interesting.
OK it is not smooth and complex as others (RL Seales...) bot honnestly at this price tag it is really more than decent ! A good surprise. Perfect to try a "true" bajan rhum for a budg if you only know sugar-syrup like rhums.
Le nez me rappelle un peu les rhums jamaicains , toute proportion gardée. Comme beaucoup d'autres rhums il mérite de s'évaporer un peu quelques minutes sinon on sent surtout l'alcool. En bouche c'est plutôt sympa, finalement beaucoup plus doux et rond que le nez le laissait présager. Pas mal de boisé et de vanille, pas autant que du RL Seale's ou des rhums plus chers mais franchement à ce prix c'est plus qu'honnête. Une bonne surprise quoi.
Je le recommanderais à ceux qui veulent savoir ce qu'est du "vrai" rhum de la Bardbade sans se ruiner.
This was the first sipping rum I tried, and every time I have it...it still holds up.
I got into this rum from my father in law who made it his go to after Mount Gay decided to increase their price on XO (had to pay for that fancy new bottle design somehow). It is a great to sip on and has notes of vanilla and is very smooth. The mouth feel is not as thick as say Diplomatico or some of the other longer aged rums, but it nonetheless excellent.
The aroma in the bottle is mild...subtle even. I think Barbados is rapidly becoming my favorite source for rums and I'm not certain why. I notice that a lot of the rums I really like come from Barbados. Hmmm...maybe it's time to take a vacation there. A nice sweetness in its flavor with a little of an oak tingle...quite smooth with no real burn...just a nice warmth that flows down the throat and lingers leaving a nice caramel aftertaste. Definitely a good sipping rum.
This one good, but compared to the other 12 year old rums, its just not there. Glad I tried it, but I won't buy it again.
So far this one is my favorite from Barbados, after I became disappointed by the Barbados rums from the Foursquare company. But still, the Guyanan Rums are still my favorite.
