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...
This is a great blend of Guyanan rums, with a wide palate
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..
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.
Un goût de whisky et et scotch plus que l’égout du rhum. Différent et j aime.
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.
Cadenhead’s Classic Rum is bottled at 50% ABV. Fruity and spicy notes dominate this rum (nomadded sugar) and in spote of the higher % ABV this rum is very enjoyable neat. Pleasantly sueprised, will definitely purchase again.
Enjoyed a glass of Cadenhead's Classic rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design looks okay but nothing special. Dark amber color. Very strong and offputting oak and glue straight to your nose and palate. Nasty burn at the end. Better mix this one up.
a slow sipper to get all of the flavors and aromas.
