Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I couldn’t wait to try this rum. Had heard many great things about the product. I debated about the port cask and I think a whiskey cask. This had higher reviews. I was disappointed vs the hype. It was ok. Sippable but slowly. A bit hot, spicy alcohol coming through. I found the Port cask confusing the flavor should it be port forward or whiskey forward. I have not found or been a fan of multi cask rums. Papas pilar this one etc.
Sublimely drinkable, perfect proof, easy on the nose and not adulterated with sugar or flavoring. Truly a great rum that everyone should seek out. Most rums twice this price aren't this good.
I find this rum delicate, yet powerful. It is not for neophytes. This rum is for connoisseurs, aficionados, enthusiast, in a word, this rum is for "US"! A depth of flavor, layers of perception. This is an introspective, questioning, alliance of dry and the essence of sweet. This is not sweet by any mean, but the "allure" of sweet is certainly present, buy
I convince my self that the fine port barrel really was there, in the back of my mouth, but I may just be drunk, I don't know for sure. :)
Got the chance to compare this one to the more expensive Zinfandel cask and 2004 Bourbon cask and I have to say this one blew those out of the water. Reminded me a bit of the Mount Gay Black Barrel (as it does have significant bourbon barrel aging) but definitely a step above. Wouldn't say it's especially complex but taking into account the price point it really does a good job.
