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.

Very basic rum. Use it for mixing, since there is nothing to really savor here.

Easy to pick up, a decent 'go to' rum, at a good price

Not one for sipping really but OK if mixed with Coke or whatever your favourite Rum mixer is

There's nothing very special with this one, but it's a good mix and standard bar-rail in Barbados. If you're there, I'd get the far-superior Mount Gay XO instead for not a lot of extra money or the Eclipse for a straight-swap if available.

Inoffensive rum that mixes well and can be drunk neat. Fairly bland flavour and a harsh afterburn but nothing really bad to note.

Bog standard rum. This rum is definitely one for a mixer.

I had it neat, on the rocks and with coke and this here is a workhorse. Maybe not pretty (very light in colour) but gets the job done. Love the oldy-fashioned label.

Not a bad rum overall. A journeyman rum (to coin a phrase). In other words, usable in several areas.

First, it is a rich amber color. It has a pleasant aroma hinting of sweetness reminding me of sugar cane and demerara sugar. It is somewhat thin in consistency. Upon initial tasting I detect butteriness and vanilla in the flavor before a spiciness hits along with an oakiness (according to what I read online, the rum is aged in "old Kentucky bourbon barrels that have been scraped clean of the charred oak inside". This does give it a distinct flavor.

This is a borderline sipping rum. For me personally I would not choose it but it would be usable if nothing else was available. It excels in cocktails and fruit-based drinks. The butteriness and spiciness accentuate adult mixed beverages quite effectively. Hence my early "journeyman" label. It works well in most areas.

As far as golden rum's go, this one is certainly a cut above supermarket's own brand, but doesn't particularly stand out. Fine mixed or straight, there are simply better options
