A rum to use as a toast, I drink this neat like a shot as the Navy intended so would only have a couple as it packs a punch. This can be mixed with water to make what is known as Grog..but why waste a good rum 😆
Nice molasses, caramel and mild liquorice flavour. Enjoyable mixed but not a sipper for me. 2 drinks in a sitting is enough for me with this rum. The burn was minimal, as was the depth of flavour - to be expected for a spirit so young. Good because its different to my much preferred Bajun style, but only gets a 7 for its lack of wow factor. Too much competition to be a repeat purchase.
Arrgh! By the devil’s twisted tail, this be a most intriguin’ and delightful rum! On the nose she be slightly sweet and spicy smellin', but like your typical rum with her oak and caramel and all. As she sits, you start noticin' everythin' else she has to offer! There be raisins for sure, and a hint of vanilla... and nutmeg - of all things - and lurkin' around every corner, there be that pot still funk just waitin' for you to make eye contact. On the tongue, a number of flavors hit hard and fast like an elite boardin' party. For some reason, the raisins push their way thru first followed by a burnt caramel flavor and that twingy taste you only get in wines. Then, like a break in the clouds, there be an expected sweetness. This rum did not smell sweet, but there she be anyway. Sadly, the sweet lasts for only a moment before sinkin' into bitterness and burn goin' down the hatch. The burn not be too harsh tho. Certainly, nothin' a true pirate couldn't handle! Now, there be lubbers who whine about how strong this rum be or how sweet she not be, but they be lubbers. Sad biscuit-eatin' lubbers... Might this be a good sippin' rum? Aye! Just keep it under wraps lest the crew find it! This be rum fittin' for a captain, not THOSE swabs! Arrgh!!!
Clean. Winna winna chicken dinna
A get a mild sweetness, within limits. It’s a complex flavor, raisin, berry, not much linger.
Fairly strong whisky notes.
I’m a little puzzled with their gun powder strength.. isn’t that 57% ..? Not 54.5 which was the navy strength after it was lowered in the mid 1800s. Is my understanding.
This bottle just says Guyana at the bottom. Bought it in Los Angeles.
Harmonic on nose, but powerful on alcohol and taste (despite 54,5% alcohol balanced) with sweet finish.
Worth tasting! Interesting. It is Guayana.

Served as a Soto Dax, aka in Daiquiri form by Josh Soto, which of course made for a taste sensation. My notes indicate YUM!!! with a note that I felt I could taste demerara syrup, whether real or imagined.
Edit: tasted 5/8/22 at Laka Lono
notes from this visit: 5/5 barrels (I will keep my 9/10 rating)
aroma: 1/2 way down the basement steps
flavor: delicious funkiness
Other than the burn there’s nothing to complain about, a fantastic rum with bold intense vanilla and sweet toffee/ oak flavours
This rum smells like salt and sea. Flavour is sweet but strong and fast goes to bitterness. Finish is long, warmy and spicy. Very interesting taste!
This rum ain't bad but surely it's got added sugar for a rum that's 54.5 abv it's quite sweet mostly buttery brown sugar tones caramel etc with no real alcohol punch or burn was quite disappointed tbh for an op rum it doesn't have a presence
It is fruity, hints of smokiness.
"It’s not sickly and overly spiced like some navy rums. There is a real complexity about this rum with a lot of flavour. ."

Nothing like I ever had 8 out of 10
From the opening aroma and the mouth feel this was like nothing else I’ve tried in my young adventure. Glad it wasn’t the first I tried but equally happy it is a benchmark for what’s next. Don’t think this will be an everyday sipper, mainly due its strength, but it’s burnt spiciness with some dark chocolate will keep me coming back
