This comes out of, allegedly, the oldest rum distiller in the United States, ~20 years old, and well I really was not impressed. It lacks complexity and came off really flat to me. Its not terrible, but there are so many better choices.

I associate USA with a lot, really, but making rum is not one of them, so I was excited to try this one, but honestly, if this is the standard, then it is better if they stick to something like bourbon.

Nose: Grapes, grass, sugercane and rubber
Taste: Sugarcane, lychee and grapes with a somewhat good funky aftertaste
Overall: To me this rum was all over the place. It tries too many things and fails at almost all of them. I can see, that I am in the minority here, which is fine, but this is not a rum for me.

Mattes Honiggelb im Glas.
In der Nase sehr penetrant nach angebranntem Karamell das mit Löse- und Spülmittel von einem verkohlten Stück Holz gelöst wurde.
Im Gaumen ein wenig besser, verkohltes, bitteres Karamell mit leicht ätzendem synthetischen Unterton. Weisse Früchte und Zuckerrohrsirup sind auch noch dabei.
Im Abgang süss und bitter, so wie ein alter angerosteter Ananas-Dosen Deckel.
Ein sehr spezieller Rum der für mich künstlich und unharmonisch wirkt. Für Wagemutige und Masochisten.

Matt honey yellow in the glass.
In the nose very penetrating, burnt caramel which was dissolved with solvent and detergent from a charred piece of wood.
On the palate a slightly better, charred, bitter caramel with a slightly caustic synthetic undertone. White fruits and sugar cane syrup are also included.
The finish is sweet and bitter, like an old rusty pineapple tin lid.
A very special rum that seems artificial and inharmonic to me. For the daring and masochists.

But I couldn't. Fruit notes, but a general nasty taste in my mouth that overpowers. Please see my review on the Crystal for more information.

This was my favourite of all of the rums I sampled at Old New Orleans Distillery. They have another rum they call King Creole which they are a bit more proud of, but to me it has too much Jack Daniels in it from the barreling process. I like the 3 year better because it still taste like rum and retains a bit more of the original molasses flavour which I love. They lost a lot of stock in the aftermath of Katrina but they are snapping back from the tragedy. One of the few American distillers of rum and well worth it.

At a recent Rum tasting my Nephew brought this as a gift. It was a hit! Now interested in tasting the whole line.
The aroma is very pleasing. Yes some woody overtones but a wonderful butterscotch touch. Good old brown sugar too.
Taste - Many amber rums reach out and grab you - this is seductive, like a New Orleans woman. Very little tongue bite, smooth in the mouth. It has a sweet/wood flavor and a real smokiness that I like a lot.
This rum is great to experiment with. It will stand up wonderfully with any mix, in a glass with a ice rock or two - even a splash of water. It will be hard to pick one below.
A 9 all day

Tried it and was not that impressed. Had it on the rocks. Might work as a mixer.

Minner lite om Rum, synes ikke dette smakte godt. Trur ikke jeg kommer til å kjøpe Rom fra USA flere ganger.

What a surprise! From smelling it to having a second sip it is a whole journey! In love. From butterscotch to rubber to beautiful paradise! So many tastes and so pleasant.
