Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I had high Hope's for this one, but was left wanting something more. Light in color and body. Alcoholic burnt carmel on the nose. Upon tasting, slight burn that fades quickly then transitions to brown sugar, light oak, light orange zest then disappears. You are left waiting for something else, but nothing else comes. It wants to be whiskey, bourbon and rum. Neither wins.
Had Batch 002. I found it absolutely overwhelmingly flavored by the barrels and citrus peel, specifically undesirable grapefruit, masking the supposed glory of this rum, its natural sweetness. I could still taste that undertone, but there was so much dominance by the barrels and peel that it led to a lack of complexity. This didn’t taste like rum and was not even close to worth its price tag. There was enough to make me want to try other batches but certainly not to pay for them.
Taste is different. Flavoured tastily, but as well harsh and burning. Not my cup of tea, end up in a long drink....sorry for that!
This rum is meant to be a single estate rum so I imagine that the flavour profile to be different from the usual manufactured company's ... Sadly I was disappointed
Expected very dry stuff, but is was more to my taste with the molasses flavor playing bigger part.
I didn't much care for this. It has some decent qualities and I think some people would like it, but it tasted a bit whisky-like to me and also maybe a bit like cognac. I would drink it but it would never be a rum that I'd buy, though I'd imagine that some would love it.
First sip went down my windpipe LOL.
High proof rum with great color and flavor. Similar to batch #1 but I think I like this one just a bit more.
