Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
At first I had to double check the percentage as I thought I might have bought an overproof rum by mistake. It's a fairly standard 40% but tastes much stronger.
The label claims notes of vanilla and tobacco, but I feel like I missed the vanilla entirely and the tobacco was somewhat overpowered by the general petrol-like qualities of it
Will be drinking the rest of the bottle in cocktails to disguise what is a rum that is frankly, not to my taste at all.
I have had this bottle for a long time but had forgotten about it. I am now drinking the last shot and it's time to rate. Nothing outstanding here for a dry rum but it shows quality without additives. I will have to try the older forgotten casks bottle, thinking that all this needs is more age. This does make an outstanding rum and Coke. $40 @ LCBO
Surprisingly harsh for Chairman’s Reserve. Mixes well however
Solid but they make a lot better runs. And even better beer are using their barrels.
N- Soft, fresh cut grass, chocolate, molasses with tinge of turned earth, breezy and light note between ripe and green mango. Neither with much good nor bad that stays right at the edge, Thought had a sip would improve the aroma greatly with more pleasant molasses and vanilla emerged. (86/20)
P- Neutral and authentic without being heavily "chaptalized". Candlewax, ripe fruit and pleasant mouth coat. Not with much characters, but you can't dislike it either. (86/20)
F- Medium, dry, unexpected waxy sour fruit cling at the back palate. (86/20)
B/B- 85/19, all good but wee light and lack structure.
Weighted Rate- 79pt
