Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing a bottle as part of a rare rum tasting.
A bit sweet, which smells and tastes of molasses, oak, nuts, and a hint of butterscotch. Very nice!
Rare rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continues onwards with Barnacles 12y. Rather nice bottle and label design. Golden color. Very dry start and plenty of oak. If it would be sweeter, it actually would be a very solid Dominican Republic product. With the current woodiness and dryness, it falls flat quickly.
Avast! This rum be fairly new to the market, so don't hurt yourself lookin' for a multitude of opinions. As 12 year-old rums go this one definitely be aged. On the nose, she be sweet with hints of oak and vanilla, somewhat fruity, a little flowery, with barely a hint of roasty-toasty. As taste goes, she be not as sweet, but definitely not dry. The oak and vanilla come on board, but not as much. There be a brief caramel type of flavor before what little sweetness there be turns into an unexpected raisin flavor. Raisin! The finish be warm and nutty, like a crew of roasted salty nuts in your face. Not expected, not offensive, but definitely better than the raisin flavor. She be smooth with very little burn goin' down the hatch. Might this be a sippin' rum? Landlubbers who imbibe on cognac might appreciate the flavor, but not this captain. Still, she be a decent rum. Definitely worth a "shot".
A rum from the Dominican Republic with lots of personality.
Gives off a sweet candied aroma with a slight tickle to the nose
Smooth entry with a slight bite gives way to flavors of chocolate & banana
Continue sipping and start getting some interesting butterscotch and slight orange flavors definitely unexpected for rum but a welcome surprise.
Nice medium bodied feel smooth finish the perfect easy sipper for those who like sweet but dry rums and at an average price of 35.00 it's an easy buy
For anyone who loves rum and wants to add a unique addition to their collection.
Tastes like an admiral rodney but with woody notes like if ron abuelo aged a st.lucia rum
