This is my vision of what i think the pirates from the good old days drank. Dark taste and a bit of alcohol taste to it. Not the best i have tasted but still.. The feeling..

For a five year aged rum I was quite surprised. It was smooth with a hint of spice; woody and semi-tannic with good legs and nice body. Definitely one I seek out.

Vanilla, fudge... not super complex or textured in mouthfeel; but a solid, sweet, easy to drink straight rum at a very decent price. Maybe it's a luxury shot; maybe it's an entry - level sipper? I don't think many will fall in love with it, but I can't imagine not liking it. Given it's sweetness, I don't think it would make a complex cocktail, but I imagine it would disappear in soda pop... Which, sometimes, is just what you want.

A pale golden colour. A light sweet smell, some sherry and honey, really nice. The taste is a little bit like a Whisky, not really sweet at first, later on it gets a little bit sweeter. The finish is short to medium long, a little bit sharp. A nice dram.

This rum gets better after some months in the bottle. It's first a little bit harsh.

I get some old celar in the nose, like in the Kirk& Sweeney 12. That's a smell of apricot with wood.
The taste starts also with the old celar, apricot with wood and vanilla. Quite simple taste, there is spice, some tanins and some alcohol in the finish.
Not very complex and young rum but not bad for the price.

Nose: vanilla, white oak, burned sugar, toasted cask, some apricot and peach, old celar
Taste: apricot, white oak, vanilla, soem burned sugar, peach
Finish: spice, some tanins, white oak and apricot

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruits: 2/5
Spice: 3/5
Mildness: 2.5/5
Complexity: 2/5
Value (18€): 3/5

Do 500 Kč dobrá volba - pil jsem dost dražších a mnohem horších kořalek. Celkový dojem je vskutku takový britsky koloniální; pro sledování Pirátů z Karibiku jako dělané. I lahev je taková starosvětsky lodnická; bakelitové víčko to sice drobet kazí, ale pod ním se překvapivě skrývá poctivý korkový špunt.
Dobře vymyšlený, lehký a příjemně pitelný, jen jaksi pořád stejný rum - což ale v téhle cenové kategorii nepřekvapuje. Kupodivu ale obstoji i v bezprostředním srovnání s dvakrát dražšími kolegy, což z těch levných zvládne málokterý (rozuměj - ne, že snad byl stejně dobrý, avšak nejenže nepůsobí jako úplně hnusný, ale dá se jím neurážlivě, ba dokonce vcelku uspokojivě pokračovat).
Nějaké zralejší flašce z ostrova Antigua v podobně rozumné relaci bych se určitě nebránil, opakovat tuhle už ale nebudu - Plantation Grande Reserve, ale dokonce třeba i Pampero Aniversario zahraje za stejné peníze přeci jen podstatně lepší bigbít.

This rum goes well with cola and I drink it straight up all the time. Simple but good taste!

English Harbour 5 Y.O. je všestranný rum, lehký a velmi jemný. Po destilaci zrál v sudech po bourbonu po dobu minimálně 5 let. Potěší i milovníky koňaku a skotské whisky.

Aroma: třešně, dřevo, náznak kouře, jemné koření, banánový a ořechový chléb.
Chuť: suchá, velmi jemná, s tóny zralých jablek, robustní kávy, pražených ořechů, tmavého cukru a koření.
Zakončení: čisté a elegantní, s přetrvávajícími tóny tmavého tropického ovoce.
