Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I have been getting more and more into Jamaican rums over the years and in my journey I had to seek out something from Worthy Park. This is the first bottle I tried from this classic Jamaican destillery.
Nose: Funky bananas, caramel, vanilla and a warm fruity feel
Taste: Bananas, apples, vanilla and toffee with a long and strong aftertaste
Overall: This is not a bad rum from Jamaica. There is a lot of funk upfront, but it makes a turn in the aftertaste and becomes somewhat to mellow for me.
20ml uit een advent kalender. Typische Jamaicaanse "funk" en bananen. Niet spectaculair verders.
Enjoyed two glasses of Worthy Park Rum-Bar Gold rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design looks pretty dull and low end. Light golden color. Very strong glue and funk straight to your nose and palate. Super strong burn at the end. Even mixing this, you get the funk shining through.
Info: 50% ABV. Mostly 4 years old, with a little bit of 8yo. Mostly WPL marque. 60-119 g/hL AA (I think?) for the unaged distillate. Caramel color added for batch consistency. Aged in Brown-Forman bourbon barrels.
Flavor profile: Banana, but also a high amount of astringency and a cherry cough sleep flavor I don't care for. The palate is more approachable and vanilla-forward.
A great Jamaican mixer, but not my favorite (nor in my top 5). I love Worthy Park, but this one was a bit of a let-down.
Note: this is likely the same rum as the following entries:

Ein Rum der gut für Cocktails geeignet scheint!
Eher nicht zum Pur Genuß
Nope, to thin in taste and a not so nice grappa tone in smell. But still ok. Nose: lemon and plums. Palate: citrus and blood orange.
En skuffende rom som er meget skarp og samtidig let i det den forsvinder hurtigt uden at man fornemmer nogen smagsnoter.
Pas mal mais manque de punch par rapport au blanc et le vieillissement le lisse un peu trop. Il en perd de la personnalité.
Slet ikke mig, men ikke så sprittet i smagen som forventet.
