Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Long time scotch drinker here. Got onto sipping rum when I tasted this during a tour of the Waitling distillery in Nassau.
I had this straight up, not water or ice. Very mild body and very little after burn. Taste was mild coffee and vanilla. Very nice rum.
Can't be bought in the USA.
Tasted this rum while visiting The Distillery in Nassau. This one definitely had a little more bite, but the aroma was amazing and pretty damn smooth
Nose: Rubbing alcohol and a charred barrel
Pallet: Undeveloped and harsh, a sad and unsuccessful attempt at being a decent rum
Finish: Gasoline, some spice, a little table sugar, and a charred barrel
This is the "best rum" Watling's offers and its best used in a frozen drink. This is a $12 rum that's nicely packaged and sold for $40+
I was tempted to give it a 3 Rating but I was overwhelmed with disappointment. The government of Nassau should shut this place down. It's a national embarrassment!
While cruising we decided to find our way to the Waitling's distillery. Decided to try the selection at the bar. This was the better of the three offered. The taste/after taste was a bit overwhelming. Left without purchasing any, thought it overpriced.
The caramelized flavors certainly come through, but not overbearingly so. Nicely balanced and solid enough to be sipped, although not as complex as others I've had. My favorite of their three offerings.
Bought this rum in the Nassau airport! Wow, totally amazing! Smooth caramel taste! No disappointment. This is the reason I joined rum ratings!
Good nose. Flavor has some oak and cane notes but this is not a sipper. Hard and short. No balance. No finish. No joy. Pass on this.
Bought as present from bahamas - light in the mouth, oaky plenty of caramel but found it better in a strong dark &stormy than as a sipper
Picked this baby up on Exuma. Subtle caramel flavor. Well balanced. Easy sipping gem. And a nice looking bottle to boot!
