Recommendable to most
You know what, I could sip on this rum for a while. It has a great Carmel and molasses nose, and the taste is mild with a little character. Little too tart for me, but not obnoxious. Have a try, but there are better between 10-15 years old
I like this distillery. I really think this is overrated. Great nose. The kind of nose that gets your hopes up. It is velvety smooth....then “ hey what happened here”?The taste just isn’t there. A little bit of oak and plum, but very little. Disappointing. Not complex. The only thing rare about this is the taste vacuum. I tried it neat and on ice. Both were pretty pedestrian. Finish was also unremarkable and short. I will try it again. Might like it better next time. I can’t see rating this as high as some others have. There are much better Appleton rums out there for sure.
Fermentation: 36 hours
Distillation: Pot and column stil
When I opened a new bottle the nose reminds me a little bit of Clarendon rum, there are some typical plants with citrus.
But after some minutes they got weaker. Still a good and balanced nose. Quite intensive with 43%, it was a very good decision from the masterblender, I would prefer around 50% I think.
Except the nose there is not much flavors that reminds me of Jamaica rums.
It's not funky, I can't smell any esters. If you think this is funky try a Hampden or a Savanna HERR first.
The taste is not that complex but very pleasant. There are a lot of dry fruits, could also be a rum from Venezuela. A part of it reminds me also of Barbados rum (Mount Gay). In the middle there are not that many flavors and the initial taste is a little bit weak.
It's a good 8, I like this new version but there is still not enough intensity for a 9.
Great value for just 20€. Very enjoyable and natural rum. My recommendation.
Nose: dry fruits, plants, some citrus (sour note), caramel, earth, some floral notes, molasses, orange peels in the background, some oak, this is not a funky nose
Taste initial: dry fruits with some caramel but not very sweet, plants and citrus
Middle: orange peels, oak, burned sugar
Finish (middle long): spice, some earth/barrel, oak, orange again
Aftertaste: oragen and oak, after 5min sour apple
Value (20€): 4/5
This is a simple Jamaican rum. Nice introductory rum as well. Not too sweet. But sweeter than other rums from Barbados. It is smooth, however I cannot drink this one neat. I prefer this in a rum old fashioned omitting simple syrup. Has a bit of bite at the end as well.
