Had a chance to sample this excellent Bajan offering from RL Seale, who should be appointed President of Rum or something. King, maybe. Anyway, this is a masterful blend of column and pot still rums which result in a superbly smooth and full-bodied drink which has a little funk and spice in the finish. It is not sweet, so if you're a fan of sugared rums you'll hate this. I love it straight up. Very tasty indeed.
On the complex nose i pick up notes of molasses, chocolate, orange, vanilla, coffee, oak and banana. It open's up real nicely after breathing for a while. On the medium bodied, oily palette I find rounded oak, juicy orange and baking spices. It's refined quality rum, but with a little bite at the same time. The balance is just spot on. The finish is medium long with nice, slightly dry and warming tingles, perhaps imparted by the last 4 years of maturation spent in former Jack Daniel's barrel's. Simply one of my favorite rums. Foursquare know's their stuff.
I quite complex rum that tastes vanilla and chocolate but also a little bit spicy. There’s quite lot of pricewhorty rums from Barbados, and this is one of them.

A nice strong golden colour. The smell is handy and oily, light sweet and spicy. The taste is spicy and only light sweet. The finish is long and soft. A nice complex one.
I love Bajan rum . None of those artificial additives that you find in rums from most other locations. Used to love MG XO but after changing the formulation and materially upping the price point, it became quite pricey in the UK and the MG Black barrel has too much burn for my liking. So looking for alternatives stumbled on this. The RL seale 10yo is good too but price point vs R66 is usually a little higher. Pound for pound I don’t think there’s a better rum out there . Smooth with just ice, or a splash of coconut water or in an Old Fashioned .. enjoy!
