Recommendable to most
This bottle took me by surprise. It delivers a lot of jamaican soul, but it's easygoing and at a price that's more then fair. It's not mind blowing rum and nowhere near the intensity of a well made Hampden, but the expression is flavorful, true to it's origin and very drinkable, excellent as a weekday sipper.
The color is light and straw yellow in the glass.
On the nose there's some funk with fruits (mostly banana and sweet peaches), raisins and hints of glue stick. It's all rapped in a bit of fermentation.
Sipping this, the first notice is how drinkable it is while still tasting like a true jamaican rum. It's medium bodied with the same notes from the nose alongside a honeyed sweetness and vanilla.
The finish presents subtle toasted spices with lingering vanilla and banana.
If you'r looking for a casual jamaican sipper, try this. It also mixes very well (8.7)
Typical jamaican aroma. Taste is nice with esters, fruity, grass and other tones, but bit burning. Aftertaste could be longer, but overal it is fair for 5y old rum.
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.
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.
Een rum die met veel fruit(annanas/banaan) maar gaat snel over in hout tonen .
Niet heel verkeerd maar zal hem niet zo snel weer nemen .
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.
Väldigt mycket övermogen frukt, tydligt Jamaikansk. Lite tillsatt socker men den förhöjer bara smakerna och jag upplever den inte alls som för söt.
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).
