Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A wonderful orange colour with a warm, smooth, hint of plum flavour. Not overly woody which one may expect from a double barrel. For the price this rum punches above its weight. Reminds my of spytail rum. Worth the adventure.
I love this, sweet, full of flavour and a bit of fire to it, but all in a very natural way. I would put this in the same ball park as Mount Gay Black Barrel and Angostura..
Perfect balance between aged and young rum, between dry and sweet.
43.1° feels ideal.
Strong vanilla and a bit of barrel's taste. At the same impression somehow watery, somehow salty. An average long aftertaste.
Neat classic rum. Edit: +1 point for being so drinkable
This one has a nice body to it and as some of the other reviews state is lighter in colour than many dark rums. It presents well with nice flavours of vanilla and as the bottle says, tropical fruits. I like the finish, it has a bit of a bite then it fades without a harsh after taste that some rums have. I enjoy this one and recommend it for a nice sipping rum.
Comes in a nice dimpled bottle with a real cork: nice detail. Rum itself has nice flavours and 43.1% alcohol content. It's just a little bit on the harsh side when sipping it. Hence a 7 from me. If it was smoother then I'd give an 8 for sure.
First thing you notice is the classy bottle, with a proper cork. The glass is dimpled, which I read some where is supposed to represent the rolling ocean.
The rum itself is very light in colour, but when swirled in the glass it leaves surprisingly strong legs clinging to the sides.
Fruity, slight vanilla and smoked wood. A mild burn that quickly fades to leave the tongue tingling with flavour.
I feel it’s not for mixing, not enough body I feel.
Great neat or over 1 ice cube, definitely recommend you try it.
Mature Caribbean rum aged further in London.
I'm not a pro but here's my Review (I used both a Glencairn Glass and Tumbler for this)-
Appearance: The rum in the bottle is a lovely middle level colour (not too dark) but in the glass this becomes alot lighter (to which I'm not used to).
Smell: There's a bit of burn to the smell and all I initially could smell directly from both glasses was copper. I had to angle the glasses to get any sense of the flavours that are present. This was better after having used a block of ice.
Taste: I initially drank this neat, there is a very slight burn but nothing bad, the flavours initially are a bit weak but after a minute they appear and then linger for a while. Whilst the flavours come through there is the warming feeling you get similar to a cognac.
With ice I found that the smell opened up a little but but not enough for my liking, similarly with the taste the flavours weren't as present as I was hoping they would be. I did however find that this went well with FeverTree Madagascar Cola and I aim to experiment further with mixing such as in an Old Fashioned.
Final thoughts: Whilst the flavours nor the smell didn't initially shine through as much as I was hoping, I did enjoy this rum. I would place this more of a 'daily sipper' on the rocks or mixed as opposed to the 'Special occasions' type of rums. This would also be nice on colder evenings due to the warmth that develops.
