Tasty, but not quite great
This rum has a scent that I can easily and will compare to Brugal Anejo. If you had a glass side by side I may easily mistake the two. Brugal being one of my favorite rums I can say this smell was very inviting though not surprising maybe brugal uses the same bourbon barrels from this company. I have consumed over 20 bottles of Brugal anejo and would say this smells exactly like the newer white fiber bottles. The older gold fiber bottles have a different flavor and smell which I also enjoy, the taste more so.
That being said the flavor is much stronger being aged in new barrels as opposed to used, this has a stronger whiskey flavor to it. This has a much longer and stronger flavor to it. The finish lasts as long as 5 minutes. Prichards is sipped much easier and is more enjoyable to sip slowly.
I would call this a full flavored Brugal any day of the week. I like this rum and it is overall a rum any rum connoisseur should sip at least once.
This Rum is a True American Colonial Style Rum aged in new charred american white oak, not used barrels. Phil really nailed it with this fine spirit. Great rums, distillery and very nice people at the distillery.
I was not impressed with the Prichard's Crystal but they have redeemed themselves with the Prichard's Fine Rum. A beautiful amber color with a delightful sweet aroma. I am so terrible and trying to identify odors but can tell what I like and do not like. I like this rum's aroma. The flavor however has things I do identify. Like the initial sweetness revealing toffee and vanilla flavors. There are others in this rather complex rum but my palate ain't THAT educated. So I will identify what I can. The sweetness is replaced rather quickly with a distinct oak tone that can be a bit overwhelming. It's a little stronger than I normally like but not objectionable. This also brings in a pepperiness and spiciness which slowly fades to a very subtle cotton candy and vanilla flavor. This is definitely good stuff but it seems to be priced a little too high. Makes it a bit cost-prohibitive. There are rums out there similarly priced that are better. However if you care to try something nice and are willing to pay the price, then get a bottle of this.
A picked up an airplane bottle of this for $1, and was surprised to find that it contained a decent rum. A pleasant aroma of over-ripe fruit that reminds me of Jamaican rum. The first taste has a little bit of heat, but with a lot of flavor that reminds you of bourbon and leaves you wanting more.
There is a plethora of rum companies in the U.S and it seems like every day a new distillery is born reminiscent of the colonial period of US history, where distilleries were on every street corner, it seemed.
Prichard's is yet, another example of how American rums can maintain high standards and keep up with other rum producing countries by offering good quality and flavorful rum. A descent sipper with a moderate price tag.
This is a good, solid, drinkable and mixable rum. It is lighter than some. Unlike other reviewers, I don't find that it has a "whiskey" rather than "rum" taste. Good job, Prichard's!
