Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is definitely a step up from the 12 year old. This adds significantly more complexity and depth, while being recognisably from the same stable. I never tried the older, sweetened version so I can't comment on the change.
Smell is a dark, rich molasses, with a touch of lighter volatiles. Really well blended.
Taste is layers of molasses, really well integrated again. Then comes the wood and the burn, followed by the deepest layer of molasses, which heads almost to liquorice.
The finish is long, dry, slightly woody, rich and complex.
This ranks as one of the most complex and involving rums I've yet tried. It has a similar deep, slightly dirty, distinctly demerera, taste to ED12, but it's so much more complex and rich and involving. If ED12 is incredible value for the money and a must buy again, ED15 is simply a great rum without any qualification.
Smooth and very little burn going down. Hints of molasses and vanilla. A solid sipper neat or on ice.
