Rums under the English Harbour label are produced from fermented molasses via copper pot distillation. Maturation takes place in small 220 litre x-whisky and bourbon barrels. This 'Reserve' bottling has been aged for a minimum of 10 years, with components up to 25 years of age included in the final blend.
Taste like EL15

Purchased this due to my love of English Harbour 5 year. I is better than the 5 year but only slightly. Would give it an 8.5 if i could. Surprisingly, not very sweet but has a great finish of vanilla.

This is a delicious rum for sipping neat because it has an abundance of warm flavors...toffee, coffee, vanilla, burnt sugar and some spice. It's mighty fine and perhaps worth a nine rating but the price (US $95) knocks it down a solid notch. I can buy 4 bottles of Seale 10yo rum for less than the price of just 1 bottle of this rum, also 10 years old. No contest.

This a good rum for sipping. A little ice mellows down the small burn and improves the taste. The price is in my opinion to high for this rum. Next wil be the English Harbour 1981.

Cruising through the Eastern Caribbean, I had my shopping list I had prepared early on. I did not have the 10 year old on my list, but, having found it to very elusive, my quest was laid out for me. After an afternoon of searching, I found one bottle. I saved it to share with my son. It was worthy, all that I sought in a really good rum. I have difficulty in finding it close by here in Florida, as is even the 5 year old.
Fortunately, I have friends that appreciate a variety of good spirits, and will shop as we travel. May your spirit be with you in your search of heavenly nectar so.

This rum has an initial sweetness to it, albeit mild, that is overtaken by a nice buttery spiciness with oak undertones. It has a decent burn to it but is not harsh at all. Then the burns fades into a bit of vanilla and caramel with a little bitterness leaving the tongue tingling. Definitely a fine rum. For me this is not a sipping rum but others might enjoy it as such. I prefer it in Coke Zero.

Smells of oak, bourbon, molasses, toffee, and vanilla. The taste adds some spice. It’s a bit dry for my liking, but smooth and easy drinking.

This is a good dry rum. However, I prefer a touch more sweetness.

We brought a bottle back from Antigua and I really enjoyed sipping it. In fact, I enjoyed it so much... it is now gone. I got a bottle of the 1981 for Christmas, so I'm happy now.

What I mean the 5 year is a great mixer this one could be drank straight or mixed. I bought my first bottle in Antigua for $40 definitely worth it. Now it $95 not a chance.

Had the pleasure of trying this in Antigua. Light and smooth enough for a warm afternoon on the beach. It held up well to the ice and lime, but went down well neat later in the evening.

This rum has a lot of character and you can feel it when you first taste it. The first sip is strong and intense. It gets smoother after it rests in the glass for a while. In the UK, you can find it at around £55. I am not sure I would be willing to pay so much. I got it directly from Antigua at a much cheaper price (around £30), which makes it an interesting purchase.

I love this rum , smooth and balanced , great for sipping, it’s criminal to mix this rum.

Strong banana peel nose, the taste is quite dry, which kinda completes the peel analogy. Worth a try for the interesting nose, otherwise just ok.

N- Well aged rum (....nevermind the wood chips added), filled with nutty, herbs, raw spices, scents of floral and candy notes. Fondly influence by the oak, rather thick, not smokes but smoggy sphere. (86/20)

P- Molasses flow thru with bitter charred nuance. Weak body letting the oak shines, traces of aging are presence but rather flat on the distillate. (83/18)

F- Short-medium, pickled ginger and warm spices open up well, but single dimensional with lonely oak playing the soloist. (83/18)

B/B- 84/18. Do enjoy what it delivers on the nose.

weighted Rate- 74pt

This English Harbour 10 year reserve rum made from molasse has matured in ex-whisky barrels. Nice nosing reveals sweet notes of caramel, chocolate and cane which also define palate and finish. Overall this rum is very balanced and smooth, almost no burn. Nice.

I started with the EH 5 yr - then found this on sale so committed to a bottle as well. Enjoyed this neat much more than the 5 yr - more complex and lingering flavors. it's a dry rum - dried spice, caramel and lots of oak and a little burnt toast on the nose. dried fruit and fiery cinnamon on the initial tongue, which smooths out to a lingering finish. there is hint of brown sugar, but this rum isn't sweet or anywhere close to cloying. To me, almost needs a water back as it is, as mentioned before, a dry rum. spice profile is complex, but dryness makes it good +, not great. List price locally was $60, but got it on sale for $45. Like the lower price better, but will reach for the El Dorado 15 until that is empty before i finish the EH 10.

Not strong aroma and body, but has his own unique character. Longer smooth aftertaste. Good sample for RUM explorers :-)

I tried this only as the 1981 25 year old had only a dribble left in the bottle at the famous Rum Bar in the beautiful Whitsunday Isles in North Queensland recently.. what a nice experience the 10 year old was.
Sweet and strong with toffee , burnt brown sugar , with a lovely spiceyness thats smoothes the sweetness out. Didn't think I would have so much appreciation for a youngish rum. You can even taste molasses from the barrel in there. Cant wait to try the 1981 one day if I can find one !

40% ABV. Formerly XO. 10-12yo. A little dryer than 5. Not as fruity, nor as smooth (more sugar added to the 5?). Earthy. Some bite despite the low strength.

A perfectly enjoyable sipper, but rather tame and boring.
