Tasty, but not quite great
Sweet grassy caramel nose. I wouldn’t call the taste overly complex, but a nice balanced spice and funny how it seems to start sweet and then quickly the finish turns dry. Some notes of leather and nuts, rubbery. I would drink alone often, but actually tastes great with Coke. That and the sweet to dry curveball moves this one up from 6 to 7. Maybe an 8 for whisky drinkers.
A 5.5 on my scale. Pleasant enough both straight and mixed. Was hoping for a bit more interesting flavors when I saw the bottle.
Before my first sip, I consider the fact that this Rum is a unigue blend of 3 Rum, Trinidad, Guyana Demerara and Jamaica heavy Pot still Rum each aged for 3 years in Bourbon barrels and all baring use of additives and colorings. No sugar after distilling is a good thing I look forward to in Rums. I'm not the greatest fan of aging Rum in Bourbon barrels. I don't want my Rum to taste like Bourbon which this does. However it's not bad, and for the price, at just over 20 in Maryland, I'll keep buying it. Bottle makes a great sconce for deck lighting too!
Now, when I’m drinking whisky, I can’t get enough peaty, smoky malts of the kind you might find in an Islay whisky. In a rum, not so much.... but that’s what you have here. There’s a rum-y aftertaste, but I get predominantly whisky. It’s not bad, but for me not a sipping rum.
Tiene un color muy claro, llamativamente amarillo. En nariz debo decir que personalmente no distingo nada, un aroma demasiado suave. En boca muy alcohólico, hasta el estómago. Algo ahumado. Será muy alcohólico pero en cuestión sabores muy pero muy rebajado, casi no se distingue nada. Definitivamente no me gustó. Quizás funcione con Coca Cola.
It's got flavor and funk and body. It's not the most fantastic sipper, but it is dry, and it may please some whisky lovers. It's pretty fantastic for a flavorful cocktail base. Consider that the elements are similar in sourcing to the old British Royal Navy Rum.
Purchased a 3cl sample of this from Master of Malt for £5.06 after reading about it in an article from the World Rum Festival 2018 with it winning best rum and some other awards. A blend of a Trinadadian column still, a Guyanese Demerara column still and a Jamaican Pot still.
The liquid is a fresh, golden yellow. The nose is tropical with mango and pineapple, and touches of coconut. Its quite smooth with a touch of firiness, more of those exotic fruits come through finishing on the Jamaican I believe with more pineapple.
