57% ABV. Vibrant orange color. N: Pretty sure I'm getting some Hampden funk. Quickly followed by sweet caramel and rich demerara aromas. The Jamaican funk all but disappears after a few minutes. Rich, semi-sweet palate (dry if following something sweeter). Touch of smoke.
A strange departure for Golden (AKA Kill outside the US) Devil. TBH, I expected (or hoped for) a little more from this rum. I had notions it might rival Hamilton Navy Strength or Plantation OFTD, but at first glance it seems closer to a funkier Wood's 100. Of course there's color added, but the sweetness at times is a bit overkill. It's still an extremely good value, and versatile for use as a Navy-style rum, dark Jamaican, or Demerara rum in mixed drinks. I've also had success with it in punches and canned cocktail cherries.
Update: This has been re-branded "Golden Devil Navy Style" in the US.
This is quite pricey in western Canada and at 114 proof is heavy heavy. There’s strong jamaican and Guyanese vibes as you’d expect and it packs an appropriate punch. For me, the colouring seemed off and the afterburner was surprisingly savoury
Great blend of rums from Jamaica and Guyana. I like it better than OFTD and it's a lot less expensive, too. I believe this is a K&L exclusive in the U.S.. I will definitely be picking up another bottle.
I am generally leery about overproofs, but this one was decent. For me it was much better mixed than straight, and I am looking forward to trying some of the other Golden Devil products.
