Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a golden colored rum with a moderately intense nose, for me largely the vanilla/cask aromas present. The initial taste is bold with a nice bite. The complexity seemed to fade for a drier finish than some rums in my opinion. Believe this will make some excellent cocktails and can be sipped.
New to rum, but the smell of this is amazing. At first I thought it was banana. As I’m going through the bottle, I am tasting the charred barrel, caramel, even cherry, and other flavors. Taste is good, but the smell is divine. What could be better than this?
This rum is good. Very good. It’s smooth and easy. My only knock on it is after trying funky Jamaican rums it’s almost too easy to drink. It’s easily accessible in NC liquor stores which is a huge plus.
Nose is smooth, slightly sweet and vanilla. Palate is strong vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
Great rum, especially as an entry sipper
I enjoy this room. It pales in comparison to its triple cask brother, but it is still good. It’s a bit punchy with the booze, but I do like that on occasion.
Lacks the depth of some older rums but a nice edition to their portfolio. Would not buy it again just not my cup of tea a bit harsh neat, needed some ice.
I rate this about a 7.3, so it gets rounded down to 7. This is a great sipper for after dinner. Sweet, with vanilla burnt sugar notes. Slight alcohol burn that tapers off to a nice warmth with a medium long finish. If you can find it on sale, it is definitely worth the price, if not, there are slightly better rums in the same price range. I always keep a bottle or two of this on my shelf. It is decent in a rum and Coke, but that is a waste of this rum, much better to have neat after dinner.
Be careful of this little one.... You might empty the bottle faster than expected. Sipped neat, strong alcohol and is mildly unpleasant to start - let it breathe and the alcohol subsides just a little but honestly not enough to be pleasant. Oak and vanilla begin to appear but for me the improvement is to minimal to want to sip this neat. Water softens the initial waft but still not pleasant. Mixed with coke - now this is another match made in heaven. Flavours of oak, vanilla and sugarcane dominate. This is wonderful and I can see it becoming another Mt Gay regular added to the "regulars" list of easy dinking rums. It lacks the additional complexity of the XO but it is a younger sibling. I have scored this an 8 because its just damn wonderful as a mixed rum and my palate clearly resonates with the Bajan and Mt Gay rum style but disappointed with my inability to appreciate it neat which would elevate this to a 9. Highly recommend this to all.
