RL Seales 10 Year is a premium rum produced and bottled in Barbados by Foursquare Distillery. It is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of ten years prior to blending.
This rum comes in a nice fancy bottle, although I prefer to see the colour of the rum I'm buying. The rum actually has a nice golden colour, and a hint of caramel and smoke in it's smell. The minor caramel and smoke can be tasted as well, although it doesn't last long as the harsh burn kicks in. The way it warms you up, it's kinda more like a scotch than a rum (to me).
I drink rum straight up and my lady drinks tropical rum drinks. After trying this rum straight up against other highly rated rums like Pyrat XO this rum has been relegated to my lady's mixer rum shelf.
Seales 10 is an outstanding rum with a very fitting presentation. Its taste reminds of young high quality whisky although typical baian rum flavor is present all the time. The distiller offers an exemplary corporate responsibility.
Nice smooth sipper and the bottle is quite fun, looks to me like a seal stretching up to catch a fish...A genuine rum, real Bajan flavor, no nonsense and no sugar added, a real rum!
OK nose, light colour and awesome bottle.
Dry lIght caramel, good spicy and nutty notes, maybe a bit of apple.
Very good value for money.
An ok sipping rum, but don't expect to be blown away.
Strong.Bottle easy to pour.
