This bottle took me by surprise. It delivers a lot of jamaican soul, but it's easygoing and at a price that's more then fair. It's not mind blowing rum and nowhere near the intensity of a well made Hampden, but the expression is flavorful, true to it's origin and very drinkable, excellent as a weekday sipper.
The color is light and straw yellow in the glass.
On the nose there's some funk with fruits (mostly banana and sweet peaches), raisins and hints of glue stick. It's all rapped in a bit of fermentation.
Sipping this, the first notice is how drinkable it is while still tasting like a true jamaican rum. It's medium bodied with the same notes from the nose alongside a honeyed sweetness and vanilla.
The finish presents subtle toasted spices with lingering vanilla and banana.
If you'r looking for a casual jamaican sipper, try this. It also mixes very well (8.7)

Typical jamaican aroma. Taste is nice with esters, fruity, grass and other tones, but bit burning. Aftertaste could be longer, but overal it is fair for 5y old rum.

Hazelnuts , low esters not a potent Jamaican rum .

A fruity smell, light alcoholic (Whiskey), some caramel. The taste is light bitter and alcoholic, later sweeter and more fruity. The finish is medium strong.

The Compagnie des Indes Jamaica Navi Strength is a single cask rum from the Worthy Park distillery and was allowed to store for five years in oak barrels. The special thing about this rum is that it is a blend of pot and column still. Therefore, light parts are also represented. The rum was bottled with 57% alcohol, which is why it is called Navy Rum. All, of course, without dyes or sugar.

The nose has a lot of alcohol and the glass should not be observed quietly 30min. Then wonderful ester notes with ripe fruit develop. Especially banana. Some glue is also included. The ester notes are intense but not too intense. That's where nosing is fun. On the palate, the Rum is a bit sober. The 57% chase a clear sharpness in the mouth. The ester notes are not that dominant. Clear bitter notes resonate. It lacks that certain complexity. The fruit is recognizable but is very restrained. In the finish, the bitter substances remain and shape the entire picture. In the aftertaste, the ester notes come back a bit and they stay. That saves it.

For 40Euro a solid rum, if you like strong tannins. I would rather recommend the Worthy Park Single Estate bottling. With 45% they make more funk than this one.

Der Compagnie des Indes Jamaica Navi Strength ist ein Single Cask Rum aus der Worthy Park Distillerie und durfte fünf Jahre in Eichenholzfässern lagern. Das besondere an dem Rum ist das es ein Blend aus Pot und Column Still ist. Daher sind auch weiche Anteile vertreten. Der Rum wurde mit 57% Alkohol abgefüllt, weshalb er auch als Navy Rum bezeichnet wird. Alles natürlich ohne Farbstoffe oder Zucker.

Die Nase hat am Anfang sehr viel Alkohol und das Glas sollte ruhig 30min nicht beachtet werden. Dann kommen wunderbare Ester Noten mit reifer Frucht. Vor allem Banane. Etwas Klebstoff ist auch dabei. Die Ester Noten sind intensiv aber nicht zu intensiv. Da macht das Nosing Spaß. Am Gaumen ist der Rum etwas nüchtern. Die 57% jagen eine deutliche Schärfe in den Mundraum. Die Ester Noten sind nicht so dominant. Deutliche Bitternoten schwingen mit. Es fehlt die gewisse Komplexität. Die Frucht ist erkennbar aber sind sehr zurückhaltend. Im Abgang bleiben die Bitterstoffe bestehen und prägen das gesamte Bild. Im Nachklang kommen die Ester Noten etwas zurück und bleiben. Das gibt ein Pluspunkt.

Für 40Euro ein solider Rum, wenn man starke Tannine mag. Ich würde eher die Worthy Park Single Estate Abfüllung empfehlen. Da kommt mit 45% mehr Funk als hier.

barva světlé nažloutlá
- vůně skoro žádná, vzdáleně je cítit Jamajské tóny
- chuť více nasládlá, ovoce, banány, 57% příjemných, přechází v technickou k nakyselosti

The smell is pleasant surprises, interesting taste, but still too young. Not enough barrel ageing. Overpriced.

It smelled like glue at first after hat you will be able to catch a spicy and natural smell. Taste is overshadowed by a very harsh alcoholic note. I like barrel strength rums, even those with more than 57% alcohol but this one is too spicy for my taste.

If you like Jamaican rum or just want to try it with Navy strenght this is a really good choice for a really fair price i would say. Taken into account there is Hampden in this blend at least five years old it is a cheap rum for that quality.
I must warn that there is no sweetness in this rum, so if you have a sweet tooth, you should propably skip this one. But
If you love the Jamaican funk you will find it pleasant. Did i mention the very cheap price and Navy strength ?

So far I've had only Purser's rum as Navy style and I liked it. Now got a chance to explore more.

KD is dark, oily, fruity nutty, rich. Little alcohol burn.
CdI is light, watery, funky, flat. Medium alcohol burn.
KD is the blend of Jamaica and Guyana. Feels like in 50\50 proportion. This makes it layered, pleasant. Definitely some chocolate notes in aftertaste.
CdI is pure Jamaica and it's lightly fermented. Funk is Ok, but feels like nothing else is in there.
KD 8; CdI 7.
... Still looking for the best Navy style rum ...
