Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
English Harbour 1981 rum was produced in Antigua in 2006 after maturing 25 years in used whisky and bourbon barrels.
In 1932 a handful of rum shop owners came together to form a distillery called 'The Antigua Distillery' which produces English Horbour 1981 rum. The distillery produces rum using it's own proprietary high quality molasses called muscovado molasses.

Like a good scotch, adding very little pure water opens it right up. Then it continues to open as it sits in the glass. A tasting of this rum just gets better and better until the rum is gone and I find myself licking the inside of the glass. A very special experience.
This is the best rum tasted so far, and is a part of my top five list together with Appleton Joy, El dorado 25, Zafra 30 and my Agricole favourite, Clement Cuvée Speciale.
I buy every bottle that I can if the price is reasonable. As I read somewhere, “if you got the chance to buy a bottle, don’t miss it”.

Tried this rum at a tasting session last night. Great nose and palette.
This rum should enjoyed over long time.
Rum alone could be a 9, but the prize is just to large to be overlooked.
En rom der virkelig oser af klasse, man kan virkelig smage de 25 år på fad, dejlig kompleks, dog ikke så meget sødme, men i dette tilfælde er det heller ikke det der stræbes efter her. En luxus nyder rom, der er forholdsvis dyr, derfor kun:
Et genkøb hvis pengepungen siger ok.
- vůně velmi příjemná, ovoce, vanilka a čokoláda
- chuť nasládlá, citrusové plody, pomeranč, zakončení dlouhé s příchutí rybízu
další vynikající, jen ta cena...
Overpriced. For the sweetened mix it is. If only they would have allowed it to show some greatness, now it is masked by a sweet layer that takes away flavours. Crap - for this price, really?!! Sherried, fruity - and unfortunately suffering from an overpowering sweetness.
Must have for serious collectors, though is getting harder to find. My bottle is number 1922 out of 5712 produced.Serious aromas, let it sit for a while and it will open up. Sweet, Very Complex, yet so smooth. Rum Perfection!
If you buy and love rum add this to your wish list to add to your collection.
I am still in awe. This is awesome, it's so smooth, this is something that you have for a special occasion such as a graduation or arrival of a new born, drink this only with your closest family or friends as this is truly awesome. Unless you want to treat yourself.
It's so smooth, it's unbelievable, no afterburn on the way down either.
The packaging is awesome too. My bottle what's left is 2269 I'm going to get another one for sure. This to date is my favourite.
I first had this in Antigua after we toured the distillery. My wife just bought me a bottle for Christmas. It's my favorite sipping rum of all.
"It exhibits an almost cognac like smoothness and has sweet almost wine like notes. It is super smooth and there is virtually no burn on the finish."
