This is a premium by any stretch of the imagination but it is a nice drop on the rocks . I imagine it mixes better but I prefer my funk on ice ... For the price it's a good Jamaican rum in the market
This rum has a nice dark amber / gold colour and when I pulled the cork for the first time I was enthralled with it's sweet and complex melon-like bouquet. This led to some high expectations which were quickly dashed when I actually tasted it. Sipping the rum straight was not a good idea - It had a strong alcohol taste - Period. It was ok when mixed with cola, although the rum was quickly lost in the soda. The rum had a Jamaican funky smell, but the flavour was not there to back it up.
I'm not a big fan of most gold rums. This is no exception. It's not bad, but it's not great either.
Smells and tastes of oak, spice, molasses, and a hint of brine.
An ok gold rum, but nothing special to me.
Monymusk Classic Gold has a nice and deep color, quite a strong alcohol smell to nose very similar to the cheaper Appleton's, and then you get the familiar Jamaican glue to your taste buds. Just awful. Struggles for a 4 score.
The classic gold has a colour that lives up to its name. It's smells like regular rum, no spices, no other smell than what you expect. The taste is a bit stingy at first but the finish is oak. Light tasting all together. Its very good with ice and sprite on a hot summer afternoon.
The rum is presented in a stubby bottle with a cork top. The aroma is of a typical Jamaican pot still rum, a rich bouquet with notes of spice and fruit. The palate is rather delicate, making it quite unusual for a Jamaican rum. The initial taste is spicy on the front palate, developing into tropical fruit on the mid-palate with a smooth long dry finish. A truly unusual but impressive rum perfectly suited for cocktails and sipping.
