Wonderful darkly sweet molasses flavor ends with a nice finish

Favorite mixer and very smooth straight

Was recommended this after expressing an interest in dark rums. It's great in dark and stormys and with coke.

Had to wait to finish the Jungle Bird list, but it was pretty good.

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!

Easy drinking rum in which the molasses come through strong. Enjoyed straight or with coke.

I must have something to collect, so here is another fine rum.
In time, i must taste it, but not now :)

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.

Un rom straight... Pur, adevărat. Ușor after taste, probabil foarte bun în mix-uri dar eu îl prefer "on the rocks" :)
