black jamaican rums are hard enough to come by, and at $20 / bottle.. I'm hooked.

I like to do rum blends. Try this for a 1 1/2 oz. pour of 'Jamaican' rum.

1/2 oz Blackwell black gold
1/2 oz Plantation xaymaca special dry
1/4 oz Smith & Cross
1/4 oz Two James Dr. Bird

I love the slender brown bottle, it fits nicely in the hand. When you open it there is an aroma of pineapple with a bit of caramel and cinnamon. The dark copper colour is what pours into the glass. Not a lot of fire but pleasant in the mouth and warming as it goes down. A good everyday rum that I will have in my collection.

Trochu jsem se bál, vzhledem k ceně. Ale velmi příjemný rum. Náznak "pravé" Jamajky s nižší voltáží. Krásně voní i prázdná sklenka.

Wanted to see how this one compared to a goslings. Pleasantly surprised. Does the job well as a mixer. Especially like the Blackwell in a tradewinds

You can feel his youth, but it is also a dense, rich taste of coffee, chocolate. And it's just delicious. You can easily share it with friends. May be it seems to be not balanced enough, but for me it looks bold.

Strong coconut. A little funk. Better than Coruba for a cheap Jamaican black.

Bought this bottle to make a specific drink (Jamaican Rum Punch) and I’ve found this one to be a serviceable mixer in several different cocktails, even rivaling Goslings in a certain combination with ginger beer.

Tasting stand-alone reveal this one isn’t up to sipper quality. I think it’s slightly spiced and there’s a bitter aftertaste. It’s got unpalatable but anyone used to sipping more expensive stuff isn’t really going to appreciate this one.

I think what’s notable to me is the lack of Jamaican funk. As a big fan of funkier Jamaican rums, some the reviews I’ve read of this one suggested there might be more going on here than I ultimately found. I can’t decide if this rum is mediocre or if I’m just disappointed it’s not more funky.

I first found this while on one of my trips to Kingston and brought some home. Finally my local independent store started carrying it so there are always several bottles on my shelf!

Aj keď som mal silné obavy, že mi tento jamajský dark rum nesadne do vkusu, časom som neodolal. Fľaša je dosť netradičná, takmer ako od piva, tmavá a s plechovým skrutkovacím uzáverom. Vigneta je ozdobená peknou čiernou pečaťou. Vôňa je veľmi výrazná, obsahuje snáď všetky známe rumové spices, moje obavy sa teda zväčšujú (nemám rád korenisté). Chuť je však príjemná, vyvážená a hlavne dosť suchá, čo vnímam pozitívne. Jamajské rumy odskúšané zatiaľ nemám, takže pojem "funky hogo" je mi známy len z teórie. Našťastie žiadne rušivé a nepríjemné pachy tu neevidujem, dominuje sladké drievko, zázvor, oriešky, koža, drevo a horká čokoláda, možno trochu zemitosť. Nevyrazil mi dych, no za tú cenu dostane človek slušnú hodnotu. Vyvážený každodenný rum, ktorý sa určite dá piť aj samotný, nielen mixed, ako odporúčajú v iných recenziách. Za mňa rating 6,5 - 7.

Very good every day rum, smooth, sweet, no woodiness, slight spice and a caramel flavour, quite a step up from the likes of Lambs, Cockspur, Captain Morgan etc. Hopefully i will be able to compare with the likes of Myers or Skipper soon.
