Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Before my first sip, I consider the fact that this Rum is a unigue blend of 3 Rum, Trinidad, Guyana Demerara and Jamaica heavy Pot still Rum each aged for 3 years in Bourbon barrels and all baring use of additives and colorings. No sugar after distilling is a good thing I look forward to in Rums. I'm not the greatest fan of aging Rum in Bourbon barrels. I don't want my Rum to taste like Bourbon which this does. However it's not bad, and for the price, at just over 20 in Maryland, I'll keep buying it. Bottle makes a great sconce for deck lighting too!
A very fruity aroma, oily, sweet, light alcoholic, very nice.
A taste of dark chocolate, roasted, light sharp finish, also fruity.
Sweet grassy caramel nose. I wouldn’t call the taste overly complex, but a nice balanced spice and funny how it seems to start sweet and then quickly the finish turns dry. Some notes of leather and nuts, rubbery. I would drink alone often, but actually tastes great with Coke. That and the sweet to dry curveball moves this one up from 6 to 7. Maybe an 8 for whisky drinkers.
A 5.5 on my scale. Pleasant enough both straight and mixed. Was hoping for a bit more interesting flavors when I saw the bottle.
Now, when I’m drinking whisky, I can’t get enough peaty, smoky malts of the kind you might find in an Islay whisky. In a rum, not so much.... but that’s what you have here. There’s a rum-y aftertaste, but I get predominantly whisky. It’s not bad, but for me not a sipping rum.
Tiene un color muy claro, llamativamente amarillo. En nariz debo decir que personalmente no distingo nada, un aroma demasiado suave. En boca muy alcohólico, hasta el estómago. Algo ahumado. Será muy alcohólico pero en cuestión sabores muy pero muy rebajado, casi no se distingue nada. Definitivamente no me gustó. Quizás funcione con Coca Cola.
It's got flavor and funk and body. It's not the most fantastic sipper, but it is dry, and it may please some whisky lovers. It's pretty fantastic for a flavorful cocktail base. Consider that the elements are similar in sourcing to the old British Royal Navy Rum.
