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.
Tried it at RumFest the past couple of years - I must have been a bit deep both times because it's not nearly as good as I remember.
Smells fruity but if left in the glass the aroma gets overwhelmed by the odor of fusel oils.
Decent taste of raisins and other dried fruits.
Won't be reaching for it straight again any time soon. Think I'll try the punch recipe it came with, I think that was pretty good when I tried it last.
Easy to drink. It's drinkable pure or on the rocks but it doesn't feel too premium so I guess it would also work with coke.
It's a nice simple dark rum. Not too sweet, which I like, but not spicy enough for my taste.
Great for cocktails.
This is a lovely smooth surprise for the price is outstanding on its own amd delicious a safe mixer... Very different
Mixture 3yo and 5yo rums, bourbon barrels.
Body:artificial,strong alcohol,no-way to drink it straight up
Bottle:pharmacy like,etiquette pop-art
It's been a while I drunk such a "bad" rum...I could not finish even the one shot...Too artificial, too alcohol taste.
However I like the bottle and etiquette, reminds me pop-art style.
I didn't have much anticipation for this rum, but I have to say... It's quite good! Nose is spicy with a nice sweet and sour mixture. Taste has caramel, hazelnut, and molasses. Not hugely complete, but not harsh at all and easy to sip straight. Medium length finish is a let down as its slightly sour and lingers (not in a great way)
Spicy, slightly harsh. A bit like pusser's but smoother.
I haven't tried it but would be very good with ginger beer.
Still on my list to buy at some point when I have more shelf space but pretty low down.
The label is very cool.
