Väldigt mycket övermogen frukt, tydligt Jamaikansk. Lite tillsatt socker men den förhöjer bara smakerna och jag upplever den inte alls som för söt.

Ma première expérience de rhum Jamaïcain. Très belle découverte.
En bouche on sent un rhum toujours fruité et puissant/fort (concentré). On y sent une touche de fumé, surtout à la finale qui est assez longue.

Bright golden amber in colour. Oak, straw and hints of fruit on the nose. Fried banana, sugarcane and fresh oak on the palate. A bit short finish with oak and a bit alcohol burn, as you might expect from a five year old blend. Nevertheless, it is well blended, pleasant and classically Jamaican. Unavailable in my home country, but it seems very decently priced and it could easily be my favourite mixer in the category slightly aged Jamaican rum. It is less punchy than, say, Smith and Cross but I find it is the perfect level of character you need in tiki cocktails and the like, it does not overpower everything else yet loud and clearly says Hello from Jamaica. Decent enough to sip, by all means, but not very interesting.

Sweet nose. Palate dominated by burnt banana combined with some distant notes that let one think about shoe polish. Initial taste is accompanied with some burn, followed by sweet notes. Only short finish. Would have given a 6.5 mark. Rated it with 7 as this rum has no added sugar and no artificial colouring.

I'm used to great rums from La Compagnie des Indes but this 5 years Jamaica was kind of a disapointment. It's not a bad rum, but for the price i was expecting more depth.

Typically Jamaican, with flowers and fruit. Complex, but not very mellow

Le nez est plutôt agréable avec des odeurs gourmandes (meringue) et sucrées .
Au gout, l’amertume prend le pas avec des arômes de pamplemousse ou d'orange. Le côté sec, brut, estompe ensuite les arômes précédemment évoqués. L'ensemble est néanmoins agréable même si le côté "peu sucré" et "sec" de ce rhum pourra rebuter les plus "sensibles".

Dry rhum / Sweat but bitter taste (grapefruit, orange).

6.5 Points.
Good for the type it is but not worth a 7.
It’s noted as a 5year old blend of Jamaican Rums matured on American Oak ex-Bourbon casks.
The Rum has only a slight notes indicating it’s maturity.
Color: light coloring with yellow/gold hue
Taste: soft floral notes to start with and quickly intensifies to bold pepper, with long lasting flavors

Eerste kick met bananen maar wordt vrij snel vlak. Met een zoetje

Smagte faktisk fint. Men tror bare ikke rigtigt jeg er den store fan af Jamaica rom
