Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A 5-year-old blend of rums from Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Panama, and Trinidad. 50% ABV. A: Dark (uncolored) with bits of sediment from the welcome lack of chill-filtering. N: salted caramel, oak. Bananas and mangoes. Hint of funk. P: Same as palate, along with some cola (spices?). This rum's got some bite. The youth shows here, but it's not at all unpleasant. Delicious freshly poured, but responds well to 15+ minutes breathing. Warming. F: medium-long; astringent but lingers for a while.
What a lovely rum. In my opinion, this bottle just about represents the epitome of blended rum. The Platonic ideal "rum." It's got everything you want and expect from a rum: natural dark color, rich caramel yet not sugary, hint of funk and brine, oak, presumably tropical + continental aging, admirable strength, and it's well-suited to mixing or sipping. I do think it's a bit overpriced considering its youth ($50 in the US, when I think it should be closer to $30–35; so I won't be mixing it in more than a Daiquiri or two), but I can't argue with the quality. This may be my new "desert island" rum...
Good blended Caribbean rum from Cadenheads.
Bottled at 50% needs time to open up but full of dark toffee, demarera and tobacco notes. Water brings out some fruit compote and stewed apricot..
So Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Panama... in one bottle... no sugar... no additives... no coloring.. no chill filtering... and all playing nice together??? Hell yes!!! First thought upon nosing... yep, there's the Jamaican, you funky little b@stard! Not overpowering or off-putting for those that don't dig the funk, but more than something like an Appleton. Initial sip... on the front end there's definitely that Bajan style that's my personal favorite. Dry, oak, fruit, toffee. The mid and finish are where the Guyanese and Panamanian influences come in. Sweetness. Just a hint of sweetness... which leads to a lonnnng finish of everything I dig in a rum. Dark fruits... caramel... bananas foster... oak. Paid $48 in D/FW. There were 2 on the shelf. Will be going back for the other one tomorrow.
Label says 6 year old blend from five named islands and 50% proof. No CF and the only adidive is water. Strong in flavour and I like some ice to reduce the burn. At £30 from their warehouse its good value.
It's dark colour and deep molasses aroma stands out even when mixed with ginger ale or coke. It's a bit harch to be sipped smoothly, but brings a dry molasses, wood and nutmeg taste to the mixture. Very flavourful and rich. Would like to find the older varieties from the same maker.
An alright rum, nothing special, yet I had to pay quite a lot for a bottle. I'm sure if you can get this for cheap it's decent enough, but I won't be buying another bottle
Well...... put on your cowboy boots this stuff has a kick. This is a rum purest rum, no artificial flavors or back sweetening. At 50%ABV it has some kick, typically for a rum of this strength i can still drink it neat, but i put on the wifes pantyhose and added a few drops of water which in truth opened up the grog. Has a great nose, decent mouth but the finish will burn thru platinum. Good yes, great no but for $60 uhhh i would pass.
