Dry rum with some bite to it.

Some rums have a very clearly definable taste. Not this one.

It's a good dry sipping rum, which probably won't be on my top shelf. But for a rum in this pricerange, definitely go get it if you want an alternative to all the sweetness.

I somehow imagine that this was what the sailors drank. An unremarkable but still quite good sip.

A surprisingly tasty sip at this price point. I found it in the BVIs and came to enjoy the light weight on a sunny afternoon.

As far as a 5 year old rum goes, it is rather standard. On the sharp side due to the immaturity, otherwise quite bland.

This one actually tastes a bit nosed to me amd to others that I blind it on. No real finish buy there are some red fruits, chocolate, and caramel throughout it.

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

This is a pretty clean, neutral rum. Not a whole lot going on, but still smooth and easy drinking

V chuti karamel, hrozienka, alkohol. 5 rokov zrenia. Na mňa prilis iednoduchy, je chutný, ale plytky, v porovnaní s Doorly's 5 mu viac ako 6+ nemôžem dat.

Certainly drinkable, enjoyable rum. Pleasant molasses and caramel nose, and based on that, surprisingly big, slightly bitter first taste on the tongue. definitely spicy at first, but flavors (spices, some clove, drying quickly) don't last. probably better in a cocktail - given initial big spice. Can drink alone, but there are better options for neat rums.

It is on the bottom end of English Harbours line, so I shouldn't have expected much.

Certainly stronger than the 23, but a nice oaky aftertaste just the same.

surprisingly smooth for a rum at this price point! recommended to people who want an affordable, inoffensive and slightly sweet sipping rum. not really enough intensity to be interesting for mixing.
