Tasty, but not quite great
Quite a statement i know, but as im not the biggest fan of dark rum and trying this was an absoulte pleasure of a suprise, im going to stick to it! Really nice heavy mollases content gives you a great taste of caramel, almost treacle actually aswell as a light oak finsh creeping through... Would happily drink this with coke but even happier with on top of my Zombie!
Nose: Strong dark sugar and spices
Feel: Very smooth. Surprisingly sippable. Long finish.
Taste: Familiar Demerara taste. Quite woody with a hint of spice notably black pepper.
Price: 35 CAD.
I was waiting for my local to get more Lemon Hart 80 proof in because I was getting low and to my surprise another Demerara showed up. Normally this kind of rum is reserved for cocktails or on the rocks however I find this to be very sippable neat. I wouldn't say it is a replacement to LH - which is 10 bucks cheaper and works better in cocktails - however I think can sit on the shelf quite comfortably next to it.
Not as 'rich' as Wood's, but certainly smoother, and tastier making it one of the best dark/navy style rums out there. Mixes well in the common favourites like cola, dark n stormy, grog, lemonade etc, and isn't too bad straight either. I would agree with the 'lack of complexity', but rum is rum and this is a dark rum and this is how dark rums should taste.
Skipper rum has a really nice deep dark red colour, and a pleasantly sweet (with a little alcohol) smell. This rum starts with a heavy molasses taste, followed by a sweet treacle flavour.
