Tasty, but not quite great
This is a very nice locally made rum here in Queensland. Made from molasses and distilled in both ex brandy and charred bourbon barrels for 5 years. They even use their own home grown yeast !
Has one of the best noses of any rum i've tried. Toffee , caramel and a kind of spicey citrus.
Sips beautifully , on its own or with an ice cube. Unfortunately its not a very good mixer , the citrus taste which is like a spicey marmalade , doesn't blend well... sort of like Pyrat XO. Will tour the Distillery in the near future and try some of the up market rums !
I like it but they have added extra sugar better than Bundaberg really vanilla caramel oak tones to this but again the too much sugar comes through for real rum lovers
I normally avoid Australian Rums, Bundaberg in particular as I find them too harsh and basic for my taste. Apparently this is a common feeling with Europeans and when i recently toured the Bundaberg distillery they even said their rum wasnt refined enough for the European palate and most of their rum was bought by Aussies here and when on holiday abroad.
Anyway, back to Beenleigh. i was at a bar in Sydney and explained to the Barman the sort of Rums I liked and he suggested I try this. Very nice, smooth, clean flavour and not too sweet for a spiced rum. Another bottle added to the rotation of my collection :-)
Once again an aussie drink shines through
Nice bottle and great smell to the drink
It is a a powerful drink but sutle to the palate and you shud buy one asap
Enjoyed some Beenleigh 5y Double Barrel Rum while vacationing in Melbourne. Pretty nice bottle and label design. Golden color. Pure alcohol, oak, citrus and mild toffee to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Mix it up and down it goes.
Purchas price is reasonable and taste is pretty good. Great flavors throughout with what seems like a hint of vanilla. I would definitely buy this rum agai
