Naprosto originální chuť. Citrus, ovoce, dřevo a čokoláda s vyšší voltazi. Bez přidaného cukru.

This rum is on another level, really powerful. The initial nose is clearly Demerara but soon enough the Jamaican esters takes over and dominates. On the palate I get raisins, oak, vanilla, tabaco and leather at the end lingering with a strong burn but bearable. You have to sip this rum really carefully and graciously. Not for beginners or faint of heart for sure. A truly special rum for real rum lovers.

Uhhh yes, Worthy Park and Demerara is clearly the combination here. Some heavy aromas from Guyana and fruity flavors from Jamaica.

The nose starts with honey, molasses, sage/herbs (the dilicios combination of Guyana flavors). To make this perfect there are fruity notes of WP, orange, banana, apples with wood.
Also heavy notes of leather and Demerara wood with earh. This is a truly good nose.
The flavors are very shaped and clear, no doubt that it's a WP/Demerara blend.

The taste starts with caramel notes and WP fruits. The start belongs to Demerara and WP.

In the middle I get Demerara flavors of molasses, honey, mint and other herbs. Quite heavy and dark body, after the bright start it's a very beautiful development.
The finish starts with spice, citrus and dry orange peels. Your mouth gets dry, you get great WP oranges with anise finish. This is clearly a high end rum finish.
The aftertaste is dominated by WP with Demerara flavors at the end. It's the logical continuation of the finish with a lot of mint.
The WP has the most part of the taste, but in the middle and in the aftertaste there are also Demerara flavors.
In comparison to Velier Navy Old Rum, the Tiger Shark is much more interesting. The old navy has a bitter wood note from the Caroni cask that distrubs the other flavors from the beginning. There is also a Caroni coating over all flavors.
I would prefer the Tiger Shark, because I know better Caronis than Velier Old Navy Rum, but I don't know better WP/Demerara blends.
It's is a great blend and a very good navy rum, by far the best I ever tried except the Black Tot 50. 91 points.

Nose: honey, molasses, sage/herbs, dry orange, apples, pencil shavings, pickles (a slightl sour note), caramel, wood/earth, vanilla, oil
Taste initial: caramel, dry orang peels, honey, Demerara wood with tannins, leather
Middle: molasses (salt), herbs/sage, mint, honey, wood/tannins, orange peels, anise, leather
Finish: spice, citrus, astringend mouth feel, dry orange peels, anise
Aftertaste: like WPM 2009, fruity, mint, leather, oranges, honey and molasses

Rum tasting in Brussels with my good old friend continued with Velier Royal Navy Tiger Shark. Very nice high end bottle and label design. Blacked out bottle. Bright golden color. Strong alcohol mixed with oak, liquorice and bananas to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Bottled at 57.18% it is potent stuff. It might be much better at around 50%.
