English Harbour 5 Y.O. is een heerlijke gouden Rum die 5 jaar heeft gerijpt
in kleine eikenhouten vaten. Aroma's van gedroogd fruit, honing en een hint
van vanille. Kruidig met een lichte bite.
Veel rum voor weinig geld
Absolute rum perfection. Smooth, mellow, flavourful. Expensive but worth the experience even if only once.
Nice rum with a soft finish.
It is a great value for your money.
This rum is awsome, its smooth and its great for a party and hangout. It is also great to mix with coco cola soda
Origin: Antigua and Barbuda
Aroma: The aroma is heavy, buttery, with the impression of caramel, sweet and spicy, a little lacquer. Clearly recognizable coconut tones. (88 b)
Taste: The taste is no doubt that drinking rum. The sweet-spicy, distinctive. (86 b)
Summary: This is a dense, heavier style of rum, suited to cooler weather, I got him to such a Christmas feel. Nice rum that warms the body and soul.
One of my favorites. All round great ru. Very enjoyable
Didn’t expect the five year to be this good but I really like it
I really like this rum, despite the whiskey sounding name. Very tasty, and smooth
Whether you mix or sip I think this could appeal. It's light colour does not elude to much. The smokey whiskey aromas hides a naturally sweet fruity taste hit that quickly fades back to that dry woody aftertaste making you go back for more quicker than usual. It's much smoother than any other 5 year that I've ever had. It's elegance in simplicity and would go well in most situations
I've heard that this rum tastes a lot like rum would've back in the pirate days. I absolutely love this rum. Most rums are a blend of different rums from different countries around the caribbean (Sailor Jerry, Captain Morgan etc.) but this rum is just one basic rum, which sounds kinda boring but it's fantastic. It's smooth and very clean tasting. It goes well in almost any mixed drink (notably rum&cola) and it tastes great by itself and on the rocks! Definitely my go-to for occasional drinks!
Drank on the rocks.
Aged in whiskey barrels for 5 years; this rum lets you know that as soon as it hits your lips! With a lovely after taste, making you want more...
Love this rum. Not easy to get hold of all the time though. Always drink over ice, sometimes with a small piece of lime as it is quite sweet.
This is a nice mellow slightly spicy Rum. Great in Rum and Coke.
Picked up a bottle of English Harbour 5 year when I was in Antigua. I had asked what would be a nice rum reflecting a fine rum made in Antigua. This rum does not disappoint! Not too sweet and not too inundated with oak, tobacco or burn going down. A nice sipper that I wouldn't advise mixing with anything. Looking forward to trying their 10 year old presentation next.
The ten-year rum from English Harbour seemed more dry than this one. Its aroma is quite pleasant. No harsh alcohol astringency. A beautiful medium amber color. A sweet flavor with molasses and vanilla taste and just a hint of toffee. A rather nice warmth rather than a harsh burn. A bit thin in consistency. Definitely tingles the tongue. Quite good stuff. Works as a sipper as well as a mixer. A very good versatile rum. Quite nice if you can find it.
This is my favorite ''cheap rum''. Good on it's own or mixed with water and a splash of cola.
Love this rum for the cost. Neighbor bought me a bottle to try and I loved it. Very mellow and smooth. Enjoy with soda and you can't go wrong for the price.
This goes well in mixed drinks, and is good to sip as well.
My favorite Antigua rum. A wonderful dark and full flavoured rum that bodes well alone or with cola.
Amazing rum for the price. Was recommended by a local Antiguan when i asked what she drank (they didn't serve it at the resort). I bought 2 bottles and unfortunately drank them both. Great smooth Caribbean rum with a oaky chocolate finish. For the price it's a ridiculous value.
There is burnt caramel, the smell of toasted coconut, a little vanilla, oak, a smokey edge and a slight fruitiness to the aroma. For me the taste is true to the aroma. It also has a lovely smokey finish with apricots and peaches. A nice bit of fire in its belly too.....and who doesn't like a kick in the ribs.
I think it has a very pleasant nose. Lots of molasses and vanilla. Spicy, but not artificially spicy. Taste wise, I'm not sure that I'm capable of picking out the individual notes, but it's very pleasant. It has a fairly long finish, pleasant as well. My feelings on this one may change as I mature, but I've spent more on rums that I enjoyed a lot less!
A friend of mine's favorite wjich jas found its way into my cabinet. I often go to it when having a few rum and colas while watching the game.
This rum must be the best you can get to this ridiculous low price. I haven’t found anyone that can compete so far. It’s an everyday rum to an exceptionally low price.
