Got this as a gift. It is very good. It tastes like carmel love
I love this rum , smooth and balanced , great for sipping, it’s criminal to mix this rum.
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.
I’m a fan of English Harbour and this one doesn’t disappoint me. Very dry and oaky. Can’t compete with the 1981 but a fantastic rum which I always enjoy when I find the way to the bottle.

Amazing stuff. I love subtle taste of this bottle and strong favlour.
Engels Harbour 10 jaar is een expressief rum met subtiele hints van kokos, kaneel, tropische vruchten, bloemige tonen en hints van koffie en gebakken appels.
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 !
Tried it for the first time tonight. Was surprised at the ethanol bite at first but it really opened up with subsequent sips and hand warming.
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.
one of the best rums i had they mixed it with coconut water for me its really balanced rum
Really enjoyed my first taste of this offering from Antigua. From the first look at the classy bottle, a solid proper cork and a wonderful colour, i wasn't disappointed.
Very smooth sipping rum, very little if any burn, and a lasting taste, that somehow reminds me of leather, puts this rum in my " not to be mixed" group.
Mixing this with anything other than ice or a drop of water would be doing the rum a disservice in my opinion.
I bought a bottle back from Antigua as a souvenir. A little too much alcohol in the nose but a really good sipping rum. I found a little splash of water improved the overall flavour.
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.
Park my boat in this Harbour, this was a great for my tongue.
Ordentlicher Rum für den Abend. Gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Nicht zu süß. Sehr lecker
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.
For the price you pay in comparison to others in this price range I feel it comes up a bit short.
Its a drier rum with a alcohol bite but give it time and you will like it. The 25 is better this I feel falls flat but it's worth buying if you enjoy rums to see how good this is with others the same age
Good oay rum. It is has a nice finish that makes it refreshing. Dry with vanilla and spice.
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.
Jemná příjemná chuť, pije se dobře. Lepší než z Maria Galante
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.
Milde würze und getrocknete Früchte und minimal Kokosnuss
