The Rum Nation Jamaica Rum was stored in bourbon barrels for about 3 years and then again for about 2 years in Oloroso Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry barrels. The rum was made in Pot Still in the St. Catherine Distillerie (Worthy Park) and bottled with 50% alcohol without any colouring or additives. For a rather young rum it is quite dark and the bottle is nice to look at.

In the nose the Jamaica funk comes through immediately. Light adhesive and a lot of ripe but also fresh fruit. Some menthol and light seasoning swing along. The PX barrel is rather weakly represented here and shows itself from time to time. Exciting. For the nose, Jamaica rums are so interesting. On the palate, the rum is strong with a good body. Raisins and tropical fruits come through. Dried fruit and pastry spices pair with a little vanilla. The whole thing is rounded off with sweet sherry notes that catch the Jamaican well without killing it. The alcohol distributes the aromas well and warms wonderfully. Who knows how to take the 50% should tolerate the sharpnes easily. The finish is fruity with some solvent. What was surprising was how long the rum would remain present in the mouth.

I can't understand the many average reviews. The rum is very good and deserves an 8.5 because it is beautifully complex. The Oloroso finish is well done and the short storage makes the rum fruity and wild. For less than 50 euros really a lot of rum. It is not a rum for every day or in between. He wants to be drunk consciously. Top.

Der Rum Nation Jamaica Rum wurde erst ca. 3 Jahre in Bourbon Fässern gelagert und dann noch einmal für ca. 2 Jahre in Oloroso Pedro Ximenez (PX) Sherry Fässern. Der Rum wurde im Pot Still in der St. Catherine Distelerie (Worthy Park) hergestellt jnd ohne Farb- oder Zusatzstoffe mit 50% Alkohol abgefüllt. Für einen eher jungen Rum ist er recht dunkel und die Flasche ist schön anzusehen.

In der Nase kommt sofort der Jamaica Funk durch. Leichter Klebstoff und viel reife aber auch frische Frucht. Etwas Menthol und leichte Würze schwingen mit. Das PX Fass ist hier eher schwach vertreten und zeigt sich hin und wieder. Spannend. Für die Nase sind Jamaica Rums einfach interessant. Am Gaumen ist der Rum kräftig mit einem guten Körper. Rosinen und tropische Früchte kommen durch. Trockenobst und Gebäck Gewürze paaren sich mit etwas Vanille. Abgerundet wird das ganze mit süßen Sherry Noten welche den Jamaikaner gut einfangen ohne ihn zu erledigen. Der Alkohol verteilt die Aromen gut und wärmt wunderbar. Wer die 50% zu nehmen weiß sollte die Schärfe gut vertragen. Der Abgang ist fruchtig mit etwas Lösungsmittel. Überraschend war wie lange der Rum im Nachklang präsent bleibt.

Ich kann die vielen durchschnittlichen Bewertungen nicht verstehen. Der Rum ist sehr gut und verdient eine 8.5 da er schön komplex ist. Das Oloroso Finish ist gut gelungen und die kurze Lagerung macht den Rum fruchtig und wild. Für unter 50 Euro ist das echt viel Rum. Ist kein Rum für jeden Tag oder Zwischendurch. Er möchte bewusst getrunken werden. Top.

With 50% of alcohol is little bit stronger, and with aroma of smoke is like single malt whisky. But it is still rum.

This is a classic taste of Jamaica. Due to the fact that it is only 5 years old it has a lot to offer. I recommend you try it.

Den her rom smager væsentligt bedre anden gang jeg smager den. Jeg bevæger mig op på et 7-tal.

Den har en del at byde på efter en anelse sprittet start.

A potent 5 year old little devil, finished in oloroso barrels. A deep amber hue reflects in the glass and the nose gives of notes of deep oak, heavily roasted coffee beans, raisins, sour cherries and a hint of buttery dark chocolate. Given the money, there's no lack of aroma here. Same goes for the taste that unfolds intensely with the same notes from the nose, alongside tannic and charred overtones in the medium long finish. I would call this rum more manly than refined, but the 50% vol is acceptably integrated. It works out, but perhaps not for everyone, you gotta fancy the overproof and oaky style to enjoy this.

I'm starting with this and moving over to TRCL Jamaica WP 2013. Since this bottle is produced in St Catherine, could be a release from Worthy Park too but do correct me if I'm wrong.

Leathery and herbicious and it's very much on the oaky woody side with aroma of coffee beans. Fruity banana with sour cherry compote.

Tannin on the gun and tends to be more funky compare on nosing with spicy and sweet dried fruits. Tobacco leaf and earthy Black coffee.

Tannic on the finishing with fruitiness and acidity of cherry compote. Light funkiness lingering towards the end but mellow. Pretty low on ester but manage to influence a few non Jamaican rum drinkers with it.

Powerful and complex aroma. Taste of raisins and some sherry.

A little harsh and a long and complex aftertaste...notes of ripe fruit and sugar cane that highlights the typical side of jamaïcain rum.

50% alc! Un rom tare! Straight! Corect, fără nimic adăugat. Probabil din cauza tăriei și aftertaste-ul este suficient de persistent.
