This is very similar to Bajan rum's such as Foursquare and Mount Gay.

This is the most aromatic appealing rum I have ever sipped. The flavour isn't bad. It seems to add a little extra twist to the already fantastic Bajan rum experience.

A fantastic rum at under £30!

I am a great fan of this rum. Initially I was put off by a screw cap, but that obviously doesn't affect the contents. The nose is relatively light with hints of oak and vanilla - pencil shavings. On the palate, the fruit is weightier and the oak and vanilla carries through but there is a good hit of alcohol. Being truthful there is a merest hint of a rough edge, but it is appealing none the less and very much adds to the character and is soon forgotten, although it does help add to the length of the oaky finish. A very, very nice easy rum. Well priced as well. Definitely worth a try if you haven't had it before.

Edit - I have a couple of bottles in the rack at the moment, and both have gone hazy. I must confess to not knowing whether chill-filtration takes place as it does with whisky, but presume that having been bottled at 40% this is the reason for the haze. Not that it afffects the taste, just the appearance and I can look past that.

Beautiful taste for a very friendly price. It's definitely not very sweet, but a little smoky instead (if that's the right adjective). Anyway, this is a perfect choice if you spent a few sleepless nights dedicated to work and you like to release yourself.

herkomst: St. Vincent
fles: 5 cl
abv : 40%
kleur: amber
aroma licht. fruit, vanille, karamel.
smaak: zoetig en zachte rum met hout, vanille, fruit, banaan, kruiden als munt. Maar niet te veel allemaal, goed in balans, zelfs de alcohol prikt net genoeg.

Prima XO van ik gok zo'n 8 jaar oud en geen suiker toegevoegd.

This one has been on my wishlist for a long time after a sample test long ago and now I finally got me some bottles.
It doesn’t disappoint this time either, I really like it.
It has very nice flavour and it’s dry, fruity and oaky in mouth. The afterburn is also nice and quite long.
There are definitely similarities with Bajan rums as I saw somebody else had written.
A very nice rum to a very competitive price!

Good flavour, comparatively smooth at the price point. Good sipping or mixing rum. Also good straight or on the rocks.

Captain Bligh Golden has a nice carmel color to it and tastes slightly nutty. It leaves a clean refreshing taste on your pallette.

Nose: Well, really very good indeed. Quite big, intense and pungent. There is plenty of cut oak (good old small white oak casks!), vanilla, honey, brown sugar, light caramels and almost a fat corn note. It’s quite bourbon’esc. Very spirit’y and solvent’y with some sort of polish or nail varnish about it. Underneath the big smells there are some dusty spices, turmeric, garam masala, lots of dried papaya and fresh mango. Going even deeper you’ll find some hay and over ripe, black and mushy banana.

Palate: Quite full but light at the same time, if that makes sense. Initial sweetness but very fresh, lots of vanilla and honey…yeah bourbon! Gets dry. Not so much oak at the start but the longer you hold it in you mouth the spicier it gets with plenty of ginger root/power, cinnamon and black pepper. It’s really quite Bajan in a way. There is a fragrant flavour to this that I can’t quite pin down, it’s a little like Turkish Delight and slightly grassy. Ah, vanilla again and honey then on to some tropical fruits.

Finish: Grrrr, a bit too short really. It hangs around for a bit to make you think you’re getting a nice long finish and just as you’re getting excited it stops dead, which is a shame as it’s lovely. Dry. Thick corn oil, some banana, light honey and a touch of menthol. No bitterness at all. When the finish does, er….finish, it floats off suddenly and doesn’t leave any buzz or off notes.

N- Seemingly with great reputation as one of the best rum around. Let's see... Ashy burnt barks and old leathers set in well with musky wood notes. Mildly sugared with gentle toasty breads and peanut butter, whiff of life-less flour or probably dry petals. (19/25)

P- Medium body with banana, some white raisin, spice jar and hue of pepper. Balanced with oak driven but restrained by low strength, somehow generic and probably an entry level dram. An average blended whisky equivalent. (18/25)

F- Short-medium, toasted wood, spicy coating with rough around the edges, but not unpleasant, it just appeared being generic. (17/25)

Balanced- Appreciated less with fact on the absent of originality as the molasses are from others. Nonetheless, balanced and decent. (17/25)
