Recommendable to most
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.
Very enjoyable meeting with a real 12 yo. I strongly recommend for sipping, however at the moment I slightly prefer Mount Gay XO.
Nose: mildly sweet wood, some banana and brown sugar, with a faint chocolate note at the end. I detect no Jamaican “funk” whatsoever (I like all types and styles of rum). Really nice nose! On the palate, it’s smooth, balanced, with sweet wood providing a framework on which one detects some banana, molasses and brown sugar as prominent flavours - but this rum is definitely dry, not sweet. A lovely sipping rum. Excellent price to quality ratio.
Aroma is quite funky with ripe banana and vanilla
Taste has less funk than you’d expect from the aroma but still has a little bit in there. Buttery brown sugar and very smooth.
Great as a sipper and makes a decent daiquri but not really one to use in cocktail. Very nice indeed
Nose: fermented fruits,
I don‘t like the smell at all.
Palate: not very aromatic,
similar to Stroh-Rum. But pretty well balanced.
My wife and I got married in Montego. I bought this one for the first time at the duty free in the airport there. Absolutely loved it. It's dark and complex with alot of the Jamaican funk. One of those bottles I find my self going back to alot when I'm in the store. It's an all around outstanding sipper.
