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.

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. :(

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 is surprisingly strong and fruity on the nose. But also sweet with vanilla and caramel. Some wood and grassy notes resonate. All very intense and almost aggressive. On the palate, the rum comes with a lot of power. It has a pleasant complexity of caramely fruit, vanilla and wood. The bourbon barrel comes through nicely. The rum is quite spicy and a little water calms him down a lot. Then it becomes a little rounder and more accessible. The finish is again fruity 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 complex 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 kräftig fruchtig. Aber auch süß mit Vanille und Karamel. Etwas Holz und grassige Noten schwingen mit. Alles sehr intensiv und fast schon aggressiv. Am Gaumen kommt der Rum mit viel Power. Er hat eine angenehme Komplexität aus karamelliger 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.

English harbour is not my favorite rum.
I know that many people like these bottlings. But I think the rum often has metallic aromas and some bitter substances from a column distillation. In addition, the rums are bottled too young in my opinion, with a longer aging they would be on a higher level.

Nose: Sweet nose with caramel, bourbon wood (vanilla), a lot of dry fruits (raisins, peach) and cinnamon. It's also a little bit flowery. Some metallic aromas are in the background, it indicates that it's a column still distillation. It's quite sharp, I can't stick my nose too deep in the glas. A hint of barrel aromas is also there (orange zests). Good nose, very sweet and almost too sharp.

Taste: Sweet start with caramel, dry fruits and metallic aromas (this is the weak point). The rum is sharp, the sharpness increases towards the middle and releases some tannins. I get more white oak and vanilla from the bourbon caks. It tingels in the mouth and continue sweet with many dry fruits and some bitter tannins. The finish is sharp, bourbon wood, vanilla, dry fruits (peach, raisins), some bitter tannins.

Aftertaste: dry fruits, bourbon wood, cinnamon

This rum has good aromas, it reminds me of the RA Belize rum. It has some weaknesses. It's too sharp and the metallic aromas with bitter substances are too present on the palette.
Column copper savalle still destillation means the most of the heavy aromas are killed. With some more aging this could became a very good rum.

Overall: 84 points

Sweetness: 3/5
Fruits: 3.5/5
Sharpness: 4.5/5
Complexity: 3/5
Value 58€: 3.5/5
