Liquer style of white rum, strong banana taste with medium lenghts.

Helles Honiggelb im Glas.
In der Nase, Düfte wie frische Früchte mit Käsekuchen auf einem frisch lackiertem Holzteller.
Im Gaumen, reife weisse Trauben, Karamell und Vanille begleitet von einer scharfen Alkohol Note.
Im Abgang, süsse Früchte die in Lösungsmittel eingelegt sind.
Ein funky Jamaika Rum der durchaus noch ein paar Jahre im Fass bleiben könnte.
Für Entdecker und Experimentierfreudige.

Bright honey yellow in the glass.
On the nose, smells like fresh fruits with cheesecake on a freshly painted wooden plate.
On the palate, ripe white grapes, caramel and vanilla accompanied by a sharp alcoholic touch.
In the finish, sweet fruits that are soaked in solvent.
A funky Jamaican rum that could stay in the barrel for a few more years.
For explorers and experimenters.

Ein Rum der gut für Cocktails geeignet scheint!
Eher nicht zum Pur Genuß

Let it be known, that I am not a fan of the Jamaican style of rum, but even for a Jamaican rum this is not good and should have gotten a few more years in the barrel before hitting the bottle.

Nose: Hefty smell of green bananas and cooked apples
Palate: A big hit of green bananas with a fruity aftertaste. Slight burn. Short finish.
Overall: I might be a little harsh on this one, but I tasted it with people who are into Jamaican rum, and they did not have much positive to say about it. The less said on my end the better.

I've tried the Overproof from Worthy Park and now the Gold. Neither are very refined or noteworthy. The Gold has the same undercurrent of flavor as the Overproof. That's not a good thing. Four years of age has smoothed many of the prickly features of the unaged spirit, but it could get still another 20 years of age and still suffer from many of the same flaws.

The taste is acceptable as a mixer. As a sipper, it's rough. There's a lot of cask influence here but the sharp bite and vegetal harshness, also found in the Rum Bar Overproof, never leaves.

This was found for $10 on Jamaica. I consider it to be a good value at $10. In the US, it goes for $25-$33. At that price you're wasting your money.

Expecting jamaican pungency, I'm surprised to stick my nose in the glass and find a very light, gentle character with notes of sweet baked banana, melting dark chocolate and buttered popcorn. Sipping reveals a very light, almost thin rum with subtle hints of banana and wood, finishing with just a hint of that fermented jamaican fingerprint. I find it kinda watery, but in fact it seems harmonious with the light character.

Info: 50% ABV. Mostly 4 years old, with a little bit of 8yo. Mostly WPL marque. 60-119 g/hL AA (I think?) for the unaged distillate. Caramel color added for batch consistency. Aged in Brown-Forman bourbon barrels.

Flavor profile: Banana, but also a high amount of astringency and a cherry cough sleep flavor I don't care for. The palate is more approachable and vanilla-forward.

A great Jamaican mixer, but not my favorite (nor in my top 5). I love Worthy Park, but this one was a bit of a let-down.

20ml uit een advent kalender. Typische Jamaicaanse "funk" en bananen. Niet spectaculair verders.

It's like sitting on a Jamaican beach at night with a big fire, a lot of flavours, it's strong and well rounded.
