The Duppy Share Caribbean rum

The Duppy Share Caribbean

Caribbean | Aged

The Duppy Share Caribbean rum is produced using a combination of 3-year Jamaican and 5-year Barbados rums. Both are aged in bourbon barrels and brought to London for bottling.

The name 'Duppy Share' comes from Caribbean folklore where the dark spirit 'duppies' take their share of rum from distilleries, similar to the traditional term 'angel’s share' when rum is lost due to evaporation during the aging process.

Not so much overripe bananas as I expected from the jamaican part. Fruity with dry woodish end. Decent for casual sipping.

Can't really complain. Perfectly drinkable but nothing special.

Slušný rum který mě ale příliš nezaujal. Celkem suchý a velmi autentický.

This rum is meant for mixing and not to be sipped. Good for a rum and cola.

For the money (30€ in Holland) i wont rebuy.
I like the taste but the flavours dont stand out. Marketing is good..

The Jamaica is present on the nose as overripe banana, moderately funky, mixed with Bajan citrus fruits, the taste is similar mix of the two styles, first few shots are dominated with Jamaica, but then the Bajan starts to get more noticeable, the body starts to resemble Doorly' y, which is fine by me. The body is fruity, spicy, on the sweet side (as far as rum can be without added sugar), with a bit of sour twist, the aftertaste is long and spicy and has some alcohol burn in it, but the mix is still sippable, especially after the first third of the bottle.

Nice little rum to drink with a mixer. Not quite a straight sipper.

I really like this blend; a dry Bajan spiced up with a drop from Jamaica. A very flavourfull rum with lots of floral and fruity notes both in scent and taste. Easy drinking for sure and always seducing to take a glass more than planned.

So why just a 7? Well that is because over the last year I tasted 3 more blends that are built around the same theme; Mates (by Mates), Selected Rum (by Ultimatum) and Sample Eleven (by Kintra) and they are all (a lot) better than the Duppy Share while still in the same price category (€25-30). The cheapest of them, and closest in taste, is Mates and that surpasses the Duppy Share by 4 steps; more flavour, more complexity, more fun and costing less money. So despite being a really nice rum and finishing this bottle will be no punishment there is no reason to buy another one; there are simply too many better rums around.
