Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Has some pleasant sweetness to go along with some oakiness to reduce the sweetness so it isn't over the top. Baking spices and vanilla are also evident to give this a nice flavor. I have only sipped this rum neat and enjoyed it a lot. Kind of similar to Old Monk XXX.
UNFORTUNATELY, THIS RUM IS NOT EASY TO FIND.
Vanilla touches and smooth after taste makes for an enjoyable sipper and could hold other surprises once I get to know it better.
Nice, dark amber colour in the glass.
The flavours seem to explode in your mouth and then settle to the back of your mouth.
There is a good lingering aftertaste, however the initial alcohol burn is a bit more than what I prefer.
Mixing with Coke or putting into Hot Chocolate creates a really flavorful, enjoyable drink
Tried the Old Port Matured East Indian Rum and initial impressions looked good. Nice looking bottle, fancy little story on the label, dark alluring color, and a very pleasant smell to the nose. Then it's downhill from here. The rum has a damp cellar taste and a rather offputting afterburn plus a strong alcohol kick at the end. So much lost potential with this particular rum.
A very enjoyable rum, the Old Port Deluxe Matured is dark, sweet and very atmospheric. It has a lot of character, although I understand some of the below sentiments that the taste can be somewhat artificial in taste, but I think that's mostly due to the lack of proper spark in it. It's a very good sipper, but I would not recommend this to the experienced tongue. I do however love it, I would always have one ready for consumption!
Using coke should be avoided, I find it to make the drink too bland and really steals away the distinct character that this rum has.
I find myself Liking this one more than I should. its a decent sipper. nose is sweet oak and almost cherry red wine like. tast upfront on the tounge is a little thin but sweet with a peppery cinnamon after a bit. going down it explodes with spice and oak flavore that actualy makes this one worth sipping
A little harsh, yet thin? Artificial taste and smell too. An interesting failure. I'm glad I tried it, but I can't imaging purchasing it again.
Drinkable with coke, but thats about it.
There are better mixers out there.
Tried one sip neat before I added the coke, but its too harsh for that.
Update: Not taken in to account in my score, but extremely poor screwcap on this bottle.
