Tasty, but not quite great
Just found it in local liquor store (BC) and love it especially considering the price - $25, and the fact that Eldorado 12 price jumped to $38,
I guess it's not as "refined", though. While most reviews say it's better mixed and/or with ice -I enjoy drinking it neat.
The best Demerara I've found but sadly not available where I live (Saskatchewan). Any time I travel Young's Old Sam comes back with me. The only Demerara the local government liquor stores stock is Lemon Hart so that's my substitute and the occssional Caribbean.
Step1: find rum section in local liquor store.
Step2: look at bottom shelf, for cheap looking label and screw on cap.
Step3: have your mind blown.
It's dark, sweet, delicious, and I passed it by so many times! I'm glad I found this site, because I would have missed out on this amazing rum.
The packaging actually do a great injustice to this product, making it look like a low quality hooch rather than a delicious mixer and sipper. This one is enjoyable on rocks or not, mixed or straight. Its sweet, oh Lord yes, but such a great flavour and nose.
Notes of molasses, spice, leather, and wood, and a pleasant and smooth bit of burn.
I tried this in a dark and stormy, and preferred it over Goslings. This is definitely going to stay in stock at my home.
I came back and edited my review.
This is a very basic rum. There is nothing outstanding about it, but there is nothing heinous either.
This is not a rum you would want to sip, rather you want to mix this with some Coke.
I most likely will not buy this one again. It was good to try it and expand my palate, but it’s not worth a repeat.
The label and twist cap make this look ghetto. I was so surprised to taste something this nice.
This is a really sweet rum. It’s like drinking boozy molasses- which sounds delicious to me.
It’s really more like a 7, but I’m giving it a +1 bump for a great price. Here in BC it is about as cheap as they come, but it’s better than many of the more expensive rums.
Sampled Old Sam Demerara Rhum which I enjoyed in spite of being sweet and so young. Not really a sipping rhum but nevertheless better than many other young rums I have had.
