Very beautiful Worthy Park, directly from the distillery.
The nose is not very complex, but very tasty and bright. Grasy notes, orange and bananas are first in your nose. In the background is some anise and white oak. The balance is great with 45% abv.
It doesn't overwhelm beginners, but neither does it boring advanced conaisseurs.
After some week this rum develops also some vegetable flavors (I love them, this reminds me of Fiji rums).
The taste is bright and fruity. A little bit watery start with grasy notes. Beautiful bananas as I expected with some oranges, good balance again. Quite spicy finish. There is also some anise. Tasty WP, very good that this quality is an official release.
With more intensity or cask strength this one would be as good as Velier.
I would rate this rum 87 points. Very tasty.

This has some serious “funk”. But unlike Hampden it is balanced. Oak, banana and vanilla right up front. Also the fine strong bite. But is all in balance. It hits the pallet so smoothly revealing the molasses and some tobacco notes. Great body. It goes down as easy as water. So smooth with a very long lingering finish. Fine rum. Money well spent. This is what a Jamaican rum can and should be.
This Jamaican rum is characterized by an aroma of vanilla, caramel and fresh fruit notes of oranges and bananas on the nose. It is somewhat reminiscent of Cherry Coke. Palate shows aroma of plums and ripe bananas. In addition vanilla, honey and spicy barrel notes. Yes, you will find some of the funky notes so typical for Jamaican rum! The finish is medium long-lasting and spicy and sweet with vanilla, pepper and spices. Fine price / quality ratio.
On the nose: shoe polish or a slight note of glue (after a few minutes it will be gone), lots of sweetness, pineapple, sugar cane, tobacco, especially yellow plum, baked banana with cinnamon, fermented tropical fruits, raisins.
On the palate: spicy, alcoholic hot, especially ginger, baked banana, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: spicy with pepper, some cocoa chips, some alcoholic heat, some rubber and polish, ripe pineapple, dry.
With a little water: chocolate in the nose and on the palate. Great stuff!!
In der Nase: Schuhpolitur und leichte Klebstoffnote (nach ein paar Minuten verflogen), viel Süße, Ananas, Zuckerrohr, Tabak, vor allem gelbe Pflaume, gebackene Banane mit Zimt, vergorene tropische Früchte, Rosinen. Am Gaumen: würzig, alkoholisch scharf, vor allem Ingwer, gebackene Banane, Muskatnuss und Pfeffer. Im Abgang: würzig mit Pfeffer, etwas Kakaosplitter, etwas alkoholische Schärfe, etwas Gummi und Politur, reife Ananas, trocken. Mit etwas Wasser auch Schokolade in der Nase und am Gaumen. Wow, der rockt!!
Une joli couleur or leger.
Un nez légèrement caramel, et peu agressif.
Une bouche fruit confi et légèrement caramel.
Un final légèrement pivotant et plutôt long.
Une belle réussite.
Among the jamaican’s, worthy park has their own signatur funk, which seem’s more well behaved than some of the naughtier names, like Hampden. This doesn’t make it more or less appealing though. The nose is really aromatic and a little earthy with notes of banana, musty pineapple, milky tea, hints of rubber, varnish and sawdust. Given a little time, chared wooden notes also peaks out.
Given the potent nose, the taste is, a little surprisingly, somewhat light bodied but not without flavour. Tasty rubbery notes unfolds with an underlying banana sweetness, then rolling towards black tea and a bit of a spicy finish with pepper and ginger, ultimately giving way to the lingering pineapple sweetness.
It started out as a 7 for me, but as I’m getting to know this bottle, it’s closing in on an 8. The price is perhaps slightly to high, but it’s no biggie. Recommended and enjoyable bottle if you like Jamaican.
An interesting take on Jamaican Funk. Dry with the alcohol coming to the top on the nose and a little bit flat as a sipper though pleasant. Mixed very nicely in Coke, ginger ale and citrus; will probably be a great blender.
Tough decision on whether or not to keep in my bar; prefer it as a mixer and the price is higher like a sipper.
Bottled at 45% abv, this rum really showed me what Jamaican funk is all about - and I am aware it's not among the more funky out there!
Nose: Very strong aromas, at least in the nose it's very funky, dominated by banana, as is the signature for Worthy Park. The other notes, Jamaican-style, are acetone-like in nature: varnish, green tomatoes, pears, crisp olive oil, grass, definitely some brine... it really hits you directly with the surreal estery bouquet. It has very little to do with Bajan rums, much crisper, sharp, and is clearly funkier than Appleton Estate.
Taste: Floral, macerated fruit, tropical fruits, passionfruit, brine, high complexity, but simultaneously thin texture and mild body - might be interesting to try at cask strength, could the lower ABV be to blame? Definitely on the milder side, but still showcasing the esters. As I progressively accustom my palate to the Jamaican profile, it shows more of its deeper coffee notes, carob, almost bourbon, but nothing to do with the "brown" earthiness of Bajan rums.
I will revisit this rating as I go along.
Strong aromas, with molasses, tobacco, cocoa powder, toffee and a slight hint of vanilla. Would drink this on the beach of Jamaica rather than in a bar... :)
