Tasty, but not quite great
The first thing you notice when pouring a glass of Old Vatted Demerara rum is the amazingly deep dark color. Only the Black Tot color surpasses the OVD color, its that deep! The OVD is very mellow to the nose. Biggest disappointment is the taste. Its exactly like someone left a coffee cup steaming on the table, went to bed and drank the stake and cold coffee the next morning. OVD rum is very easy to find in UK and Scotland and comes off from most liquor stores for less than 20 quid.
Exactly as good as I had hoped it would be. This classic dark Demerara rum with notes of toffee, molasses, and rubber is bottled in Scotland. Since there is no distribution here in the United States the shipping cost was twice that of the bottle price, yet I do not regret making the purchase.
For a lonely night and wanting to have a good time. Excellent rum, can be taken directly. If you like to talk and sing this is your rum. Have lemon on hand. only for the ship's captain.
A nice mixer, or on the rocks, but a little harsh and indistinct neat. I think as a demerara rum, it works well in cocktails too. A good one to have on the shelf!
Its very nice but when revisited the "cold coffee" tastes becomes a bit cloying
