I bought this bottle without knowing it was from my hometown because the looked of the bottle really intrigue me. After knowing it came from ottawa i was even more exited to taste but it is a big let down. From the price tag and looked i tough it would be a sipper but it turned out to be a mixer, but it brings a new taste to the original rum and coke that iv'e never tasted before.

The Leatherback rum at 57% alcohol has a nice amber colour. The taste has nothing fancy. It smells like Home Depot. It is ok mixed with soda.

I bought it at the distillery. I realize there are different types and tastes of rum. This rum was not similar to any other rum I have had. It was bad. I actually poured the balance of the bottle out.

I also bought some of their "spiced rum" for a friend who indicated it was good.

North of 7 is Ottawa's first craft distillery. Leatherback rum is distilled from 100% molasses, with no additives or added colouring. The rum is a copper colour; aromas include molasses, oak and vanilla. It's warm on the palate, with flavours of spicy oak, molasses, dried fruit and vanilla. Not smooth enough for a great sipper but makes a great mixer.

fresh taste - if you are looking for something warm and complex - not so much
Excellent for sitting on the dock and enjoying the sunshine
Canadian - eh?

...quite this bad.
It’s like rum mixed with whisky.
In order to not waste it, I gave it to a genuine alcoholic.

Pas facile à boire, disons qu'il est serait mieux en cocktail

A good Canadian rum, at 80 proof. I wish they said what the oak barrels they used for aging were, as this has a wonderful smokiness to it that I've never tasted in a rum! I've only had it neat, and it's a good sipper. The light smoke on the nose just explodes when you taste it. I imagine it would be good mixed, but I've never tried ☺️

Much different taste due to molasses I guess, I liked the fact that there are no additives so true taste better on ice
