I didn’t think I was going to like it. Nice molasses smell. Wonderful dark color. Enjoyed the flavor, less molasses than odor would have suggested. A bit strong with the after burn. Mixed nice with coke. Wish it didn’t have a screw top. 5.5 - 6 on my scale.

Easy drinking rum in which the molasses come through strong. Enjoyed straight or with coke.

This rum has a distinct molasses taste and packs a nice punch. The latest addition to the shelf for dark mixers.

Skipper rum has a really nice deep dark red colour, and a pleasantly sweet (with a little alcohol) smell. This rum starts with a heavy molasses taste, followed by a sweet treacle flavour. Simple yet enjoyable. Unlike some dark Navy style rums, Skipper mixes easily with Cola or Ginger Beer, making for a nice light (er than expected) drink.

Not bad, dark and in the style of a navy rum, mixed with coke, molasses taste, slight afterburn, on a par with Lambs, Captain Morgan Dark etc.

A nice smell of molasses, dark chocolate and coffee, quite aromatic. The taste is spicy, chocolate, oily with a light alcoholic burn. The medium long finish is at first sweet, then it gets more bitter.

A dark coloured rum that has a slightly mahogany tint. There is a slightly sweet scent of sugar on the nose.

The taste is rather bland, a faint hint of sweetness, but otherwise it was more reminiscent of a black coloured vodka rather than a rum. As a sipper it is simply too young, but it is the lack of flavour that really hurts this one. When mixed with cola the taste is almost non existent, for those who don't like the taste of rum.

This reminds me of Hopkins Black Rum, but it's available at £14, compared to £21 I paid for this. At that price I wouldn't get this again.

Strong but well balanced. Falls into same category as O.V. D. with distinct molasses overtones and a warming after taste.
Its got to be one of the most unique unchanged labels on any rum bottle

Had to wait to finish the Jungle Bird list, but it was pretty good.
