The English Harbour High Congener is a molasses rum from Antigua, which was allowed to store tropical in bourbon barrels for a little over 6 years. It was bottled in barrel strength of 63.8% alcohol in a limited edition of 1200 pieces.
The rum has some strong sweet vanilla and caramel notes. Also some dry fruits, dark chocolate and roasted flavors. Some wood and spices resonate. All very balanced and creamy. On the palate, the rum comes with a lot of power. It has a pleasant complexity of caramel, dry fruit, vanilla, sweet toffee and wood. The bourbon barrel comes through nicely. The rum has some heat and a little water calms him down a lot. Then it becomes a little rounder and more accessible. The finish hat again nice caramel and woody.
I was very positively surprised and for 50-60 Euro you get a lot of rum here. Some water and some time to breathe help the rum, which has some complexity to show. I think it has a very fair price performance.
Der English Harbour High Congener ist ein Melasse Rum aus Antigua, welcher etwas über 6 Jahre tropisch in Bourbon Fässern lagern durfte. Er wurde in Fassstärke von 63,8% Alkohol in einer limitierten Edition von 1200 Stück abgefüllt.
Der Rum ist in der Nase erstaunlich süß mit Vanille und Karamel. Es kommen auch Aromen von getrockneten Früchten, dunkler Schokolade und etwas Holz. Alles schön ausbalanciert und fast süffig. Am Gaumen kommt der Rum mit viel Power. Er hat eine angenehme Komplexität aus Karamell, getrockneter Frucht, Vanille und Holz. Das Bourbon Fass kommt schön durch. Der Rum ist durchaus scharf und etwas Wasser beruhigt ihn sehr. Dann wird er etwas runder und zugänglicher. Der Abgang ist wieder fruchtig und holzig.
Ich war sehr positiv überrascht und für 50-60 Euro bekommt man hier viel Rum. Etwas Wasser und Zeit zum atmen helfen dem Rum, welcher durchaus komplex ist. Ich finde hier stimmt die Preis Leistung voll.
Bought me three bottles of this one some weeks ago. Tasted it April 30th to celebrate the forthcoming summer which is a tradition during this day in Sweden.
I made the tasting back to back against the Velier 2012 English Harbour.
In the nose I can recognize fruits, wood, smoke and some vanilla and chocolate.
In mouth and palate it’s very fruity, woody, flowery and intense with hints of orange and chocolate.
Overall it’s very intense, strong and complex
I can really recommend it especially if you feel sorry that you missed the Velier 2012 English Harbour edition you here can get a rum that’s about the same. I’m quite sure that I can’t separate them in a blind test.
Pictures: The two bottles tasted back to back out in the Stockholm archipelago & My ADL shelf by moment.
British Harbour is one of the most reliable, excellent rums. Often hard Ron find in St. Louis, but when I do, I’m a happy rum camper.
Nice color, good taste, and nice finish, good drinking for night. 7/10
Barrel strennght 63,8% is way too much.It is unnecessarily taking away much from enjoyment and overwhelms with strong alcoholic taste.
This is a molasses based column still produced rum from Antigua that was aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 6 years and bottled at a fairly strong 63.8%. Why or how this is called the “High Cogener Series” is a bit of a mystery as the distillery only has one column still (that said I suppose Caroni was produced on a column still also). Perhaps this is based molasses that was allowed to ferment longer than usual to allow for a higher number of volatiles in the distillation process? Who knows, but this should not be compared to the high ester rums from Jamaica, it’s not in the same league.
The nose here actually reminds me heavily of a Foursquare release. In fact, if I had this blind I would guess a lesser aged Foursquare. Taking it in from the Glencairn glass I get deep Werthers Caramel, Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Pineapple Cream, and Toasted Coconut. I actually don’t detect coconut on rums much (unlike others it seems) but here it is pretty loud and present along with the Pineapple Cream.
Taking a sip the palate is quite similar to what was promised on the nose: caramel and pineapple cream. Except here it plays as crème brûlée. There is also a deep “rum” note here kind of similar to that on Foursquare ECS 2007.
The finish is fairly short and is mostly one note: Toasted coconut.
This rum drinks incredibly hot. I can hear you say ‘yes, it is 63.8% ABV’…but there are plenty of high ABV rums that don’t light your throat on fire like this one.
All in all this is very, very much like a youngish aged high proof Bajan from Foursquare but without the smoothing of the aging or the wonderful deep chocolate orange notes on those. This is good and enjoyable, but bring water because this crème brûlée is still on fire.
Despite the name, it is not even remotely comparable to the Jamaican, Haitian, or Martiniquein high ester rums. This is more in line with a cask strength Bajan but lacking the depth of the extra aging and blending done at Foursquare while also drinking much hotter. It got some great tasty notes, but with the flaws, within this profile, I prefer Foursquare.

Strong and fruity on nose as you may expect. Honey, vanilla and grass notes. Taste is complex caramel, fruit, vanilla and wood. The rum is quite spicy and I recommend it on rocks(ice) as it calms it down. Then it becomes more accessible. The finish is again fruity and woody. One of great ones and big surprise from English Harbour. Get one if you can.
Limitovaná edícia od English Harbour s vysokým obsahom Congenerov. Vôňa príjemná ovocná s medom a korením v pozadí. Chuť najprv sladká, na jazyku pôsobí husto - olejovito. Taktiež cítim ovocie, drevo a korenie. 63,8% alkoholu sa naplo prejavilo až pri prehltnutí, kedy poriadne zahreje. Naozaj silný a veľmi chutný rum. Bohužial už je vypredaný. :(
