Cockspur 5 Star Fine rum

Cockspur 5 Star Fine

Barbados | Gold

Cockspur 5 Star is a golden combination of column and pot-stilled rums matured in American white oak barrels before blending. Coral-filtered water is used from a nearby aquifer to dilute the rum to bottle strength.

The company Cockspur was founded in 1884 by Danish seaman Valdemar Hanschell. Barbados was chosen as a location beccause at the time it was one of the Caribbean's largest shipping ports.

Tasty, but not quite great

Nutty nose with brown sugar. Taste takes a while to come through with delayed tingly spice that lingers. I get walnuts, oak, maybe even a little blueberry undertone. Finish lingers and isn't great, little sour. Not overly complex but surprisingly OK to sip on with a few ice cubes.

I'm fairly new to the Baja style of rum. I got spoiled with R.L. Seale's 10yr for my first taste, though at least as I move along I can't really seem to find a bad one.
Its really nice, and I like that it has some pot-still weight. Has a somewhat thick mouthfeel, with toasty dark sugar and fruity notes, and a spicy finish - all very well behaved and balanced.
No added sugar or artificial flavors, and no tricks or misleading labeling. An honest rum; a good one to keep around.

reference base rum, not for sipping. 6+ ....... Качественный совсем недорогой дистиллят примерно трёхлетней выдержки. С характерным ароматом, чуть маслянистый, обманчиво сладкий. Годится для короткого знакомства с барбадосским стилем или в составе коктейлей.

Barbados rum, produced by the Hanschell Inniss distillery since 1884, which was built by the Danish trader Valdemar Hanschell. Distilled from molasses, the distillery uses spring water filtered through limestone rocks. In the nose: grapefruit, cinnamon, dried fruit, iris. It's very botanical, other than the heavy rum from Barbados. Sweet, mild, fruity notes - peaches, and in the finish - spicy - cinnamon, nutmeg.

A really nice rum, but perhaps not a top sipper. Easygoing, clear notes of Bourbon cask, no additives, dry and lively. It is light, and simple - but nithing wrong with it.

Bought a bottle in 1991 on a recommendation from a total stranger, wish I could thank that guy. A perfect rum in my opinion at it's price. I'm not an expert by any stretch, but me thinks this is what a good all round rum should taste like.

Tried at a rum bar in Munich. Somewhat strong nose, thin taste and a slight burn. Meh.
