The Duppy Share Caribbean rum

The Duppy Share Caribbean

Multiple | 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.

Decent, grassy, medium-sweet and enjoyable but needs a mixer. Great bottle.

A blend of 3yo Jamaica and 5yo Barbados. The 5yo Barbados comes from Foursquare, and one of my absolute favourite cheap and cheerful sippers is the 5yo from the Foursquare distillery that is the Doorly's 5yo. As such this blend, is far worse than Doorly's 5yo, Far worse. Yes the 3yo Jamaican gives it notes that are typical from Jamaica, but at 3yo, it is neither that smooth not that sophisticated, not that the Foursquare 5yo is overly sophisticated, but it is smooth and very easy on the palate. The Jamaican does pack a bit more punch flavour wise but it is a punch from young spirits. So all in all, I'll stick to the much easier drinking Doorly's 5yo.

And then there is the other "problem" - the price. Here in the UK, Duppy cost nearly 20% more than the Doorly's 5yo. While I can understand some of the increased costs, how can you justify that price differential when the blend uses a younger rum? Pretty bottles and nice packaging are all well and good, but it is what's inside the bottle that counts.

It's not a bad rum and I am happy enough to drink it straight up (I don't like mixed drinks), but it just doesn't work when you stack it against Doorly's 5yo.

EDIT - now that the bottle has been open for a month and a bit, it seems to have opened up, smoothed off a bit and is more enjoyable, particularly the Jamaican component. Maybe it has caught me in the right mood, but I am enjoying sipping this one tonight. Would I get another bottle, probably yes. Makes a nice change from other rums I have, even if it is expensive for what it is.

When I pulled out the cork you are hit with a string dusting aroma. Fantastic with ting.

Decent rum, but not outstanding. With coke it tastes like any other dark rum... but awesome bottle

If only it had tasted as good as the label looks. Very disappointed with this rum, only slightly better than the Aussie drain cleaner Bundaberg!

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.

A refreshing rum, that in my opinion should be used for cocktails or lightly mixed.
