Smooth for sure, color is a deep auburn. The smell is of rum soaked lady fingers! (For tiramisu, I'm Italian) the scent is a pleasant scent of a worthers candy or deep caramel! I'll go back to this for sure!

Opravdu silný rum, který hodně zahřeje, není příliš chuťově výrazný.

Typical rum from Jamaica, with good price and taste.

I found this to be a smooth and sweet (but not too sweet) of a rum. Great for a dark and stormy, or for sipping; especially for the price point.

Blackwell rum is a bit strange to me for a Jamaican rum: I can't discern any noticeable funk. It's sweet, has a blackstrap molasses-ness to it, very little burn, but, unfortunately, almost no aftertaste. It'll work for sipping if it's the only thing around, but I'd suggest this as a mixer. However, as of Feb. 2016, it has the worst screw-top I've ever seen on any bottle. Mine stripped right away when opening it, and another person I know had his strip when the bottle was half finished.

It does make a very nice Hot Buttered Rum, though.

2 tsp maple syrup
45ml Blackwell rum
1 or 2 dashes Angostura Orange bitters (optional)
6 whole allspice
hot water to fill a 250ml mug
butter

EDIT: works well in a Hot Toddy, too.

This is a rather sweet rum with definite vanilla, toffee, and cream flavor. Not much of a burn. More of a nice warmth with a little tingle on the tongue. Doesn't have much of an oak tone to it although it is aged. The finish however has a strange flavor which is a bit objectionable to me. Not an overwhelming bad flavor but just enough to be noticeable when taken neat. However mixed in cola and fruit drinks the finish is covered. Definitely a good dark rum for mixing.

Okay as Golden Rum. Wouldn't put it above any other mixed with coke
Average, but great after taste.

Tried it as an alternative to Myers Dark. I like it. Highly recommend it with a lime and a bit of tonic. Makes a nice cocktail to tote around at a party.

Denne rom er lidt skarp i smagen og efter smagen er ikke super.
Det er jo heller ikke en af de dyre rom, så jeg vil nok bruge den som mixer rom.

Sweet with some spices. The taste doesn't last very long, but you shouldn't expect that from a rum this young. But for what it is, it's well worth the price.
