Cockspur 5 Star Fine rum

Cockspur 5 Star Fine

Barbados | Gold | 37.5% ABV

Cockspur 5 Star is a golden combination of column and pot-stilled rums matured in American white oak barrels before blending. Coral-filtered water is used from a nearby aquifer to dilute the rum to bottle strength.

The company Cockspur was founded in 1884 by Danish seaman Valdemar Hanschell. Barbados was chosen as a location beccause at the time it was one of the Caribbean's largest shipping ports.

Nutty nose with brown sugar. Taste takes a while to come through with delayed tingly spice that lingers. I get walnuts, oak, maybe even a little blueberry undertone. Finish lingers and isn't great, little sour. Not overly complex but surprisingly OK to sip on with a few ice cubes.

Many a rough evening in Barbados drinking this when the Mt Gay wasnโ€™t around. I could only mix it typically with a little cool water and lime in the local rum shacks. Like I said what the locals drink.

I'm fairly new to the Baja style of rum. I got spoiled with R.L. Seale's 10yr for my first taste, though at least as I move along I can't really seem to find a bad one.
Its really nice, and I like that it has some pot-still weight. Has a somewhat thick mouthfeel, with toasty dark sugar and fruity notes, and a spicy finish - all very well behaved and balanced.
No added sugar or artificial flavors, and no tricks or misleading labeling. An honest rum; a good one to keep around.

Sugar: 0-4 GPL. Right off the start there is Oak, Vanilla, a bit of caramel and some biting spice. This is a golden rum which comes from limited aging. Like other โ€œMixing โ€œ rums this one has some harsh alcohol taste and aroma that cola or other juice mixes will hide and make for a good mixed drink.

Sweet, easy drinking and perhaps bland would be the best word or maybe inoffensive.

Not good enough to drink on its own, but ok for cocktails, if it can be found at a reasonable price.

Probably a 4 based off tasting notes alone, however factor in the price ($13.50 USD in my locale) and youโ€™ve got yourself a winner!
What else is there in that price range? Bacardi? Cruzan? Seriously a killer deal.
