Sugar: 5-10 GPL. The Tortuga Gold was my favourite mixing rum for years. I have been looking for the Tortuga Gold 12 year old for some time and the wait was worth it. Note:The bottle is different from what is shown on this website. This is a well balanced smooth amber rum. On the nose it has oak, vanilla, some smoke and leather, a bit of spice, along with a sweet toffee aroma. All are present in the taste which presents as well balanced and smooth with a natural sweetness and a nice burn. It's not overpowering in any particular way, no wow factor, but it's a good rum for sipping or mixing. This came to me as a gift, and from what I can see it's not available in Canada or the USA. I don't know what the price point is, but Tortuga Gold 12 year old is well worth a try.
Very good aroma, nice color. I would prefer a stronger and more "special" taste.
This is my top rum pick super smooth nice Caribbean aroma with a nice smooth spice this is my favorite spiced rum of all time but all there products are great
Smooth taste, hint of oak and vanilla, easy to drink
Can you make a stop to any of the Caribbean islands, visit the Tortuga Rum Cake factory and be lured into the free tasting of the Tortuga 'rums' ? Not really, so let's get straight to business. The Tortuga Premium Gold 12 year has a strong alcohol taste and a strong burn at the end, so quite a disappointment for a 12 year old aged rum. Mixed it with Coke and there is a slimmer of hope left.
