Neat stocky bottle holding a lovely amber colour rum. Initially smells of coffee with hints of port from the cask finish. A great sipping rum with a slight burn in the mouth warming the inside as it goes down.

On the nose there is strong charcoal and frankincense, the first glasses actually did not have any other apparent scent component. After a few glasses and a few days it started to reveal also other smells which are usually associated with red wine, mainly blackcurrant. The English Harbour lineage is quite apparent, the rum body is similar to the 5y old, what is different here is the blackcurrant jam and charcoal components. For 46% ABV and some 6y aging it is remarkably smooth, but for me the charcoal and frankincense notes are indeed quite odd and they actually spoil the fun for me.

I didn’t have high expectations for this rum because when I think of port cask I will also think of the Foursquare limited release which was amazing. That said, while this isn’t it that league it was still very nice.

It has a sweet nose with hints of vanilla and coconut. The first taste is also sweet but not overpowering sweet. The aftertaste has a nice lingering spice flavor.

A great sipper that’s will definitely be in my rotation.

I bought this one and Sherry Cask Finish.
They are both good, however Port Cask finish is better for me.
Becouse sherry flover is familiar in spanish style rum, this Port flavor is noble feeling than sherry.

I like this rum but prefer something with a little bit more molasses.

English Harbour have never disappointed me. Bought me this during a vacation in Antigua, have one from batch 001 since before without have tasting it. I also got the opportunity to get a guided tour at the distillery (ADL) and the “ageing house”. My fantastic guide who origins from Madeira and is related to the founders of the brand told me that the Port Cask Finish is the one of the three they’re most pleased with in batch 002 and “I’ll drink to that”.
I can tell you that this one has a fantastic nose. The taste is very distinct with great flavours and the afterburn is great.

The English Harbour Port Cask Finish is a small batch rum from Antigua. After five years in oak barrels, the rum is stored for another 3-6 months in 100-year-old Royal O'Porto Port wine barrels, which come from the birthplace of the founders of Antigua Distillerie Ltd. The limited filling comes in a drinking strength of 46% and is unfiltered, not sweetened and without dyes. The bottles are numbered.

In the nose, the rum is directly very fruity. Tropical fruit pairs with light berries notes. The rum is also spicy and nutty. Pepper and wood come along. Not intrusive but also not too mild the smell is very pleasant. On the palate, the rum convinces with a full body. First of all, the rum is spicy with tobacco notes. Then comes a distinct sweetness with lots of fruit. Plums and berries. The rum is more intense than i thought and the 46% are very good integrated. The Port Wine Finish is not dominant. The finish is warm and spicy again. This is where bitter substances come along, which remain present in the mouth for a long time.

The English Harbour Port Cask Finish convinced me completely. Full-bodied and lively, it offers a lot of rum for about 40 euros. The Port Wine Finish is perceptible without dominating. The finish is nice woody and dry. Only the bitter substances you have to like, because they are very intense. I am completely satisfied and here you get a lot of rum for little money. For me it tasted better than Foursquare's Sagacity. Therefore, I round it up from 8.5 to 9.

Der English Harbour Port Cask Finish ist ein Small Batch Rum aus Antigua. Nach fünf Jahren in Eichenholz Fässern wird der Rum noch einmal 3-6 Monate in 100 Jahre alten Royal O'Porto Portwein Fässern gelagert, welche aus dem Geburtsort der Gründer von der Antigua Distillerie Ltd. stammen. Die limitierte Abfüllung kommt in einer Trinkstärke von 46% und ist ungefiltert, nicht gesüßt und ohne Farbstoffe. Die Flaschen sind nummeriert.

In der Nase ist der Rum direkt sehr fruchtig. Tropisches Obst paart sich mit leichten Beeren Noten. Der Rum ist aber auch würzig und nussig. Pfeffer und Holz schwingen mit. Nicht aufdringlich aber auch nicht zu mild ist der Geruch sehr angenehm. Am Gaumen überzeugt der Rum mit einem vollen Körper. Zu erst ist der Rum würzig mit Tabak Noten. Dann kommt eine deutliche Süße mit viel Frucht. Pflaumen und Beeren. Der Rum ist intensiver als gedacht und die 46% sind sehr gut eingebunden. Das Portwein Finish ist nicht dominant. Der Abgang ist warm und wieder würziger. Hier kommen deutlich Bitterstoffe mit, welche lange im Mund präsent bleiben.

Der English Harbour Port Cask Finish hat mich voll überzeugt. Vollmundig und lebhaft bietet er viel Rum für ca. 40 Euro. Das Portwein Finish ist wahrnehmbar ohne zu dominieren. Der Abgang ist schön holzig und Trocken. Nur die Bitterstoffe muss man mögen, da sie sehr intensiv sind. Ich bin voll zufrieden und hier bekommt man viel Rum für wenig Geld. Hat mir besser als der Sagacity von Foursquare geschmeckt. Daher runde ich die 8.5 auf 9 hoch.

Aroma is nice with fruity tones. First taste is nice, fruity and sweet. Aftertaste is shorten and bitter. Higher level of alcohol (46%) is helping.
