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.

Ottawa rum with good notes. Ok on the rocks but really good as a mixer.

Not bad for a Canadian Rum. Smooth oaky flavour and pretty good chilled.

This is Batch #2 of Leatherback Rum; I hope this rum improves with future batches.

On the nose there is dusty molasses, solvent, soap, sourness (some off-note that isn't to pleasant). The palate is simple and thin (40% ABV) molasses, and a little soapy. The finish is mild pepper, apple and citrus. Pretty unimpressive, but still drinkable; I use it to mix things successfully, but even there it isn't my favourite rum to mix.

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
