Funky and complex. This is the Hamilton Black with less coloring and time spent barrel aging.

Makes a fantastic Daiquiri with just lime, sugar and ice. Well balanced for subtle pot still rum. I can sip it neat and easily use it blended. Great price from my dealer. Very happy to have it available and I try to keep it on hand.

I think I like the black better, but the darker rums is where Hamilton comes in their own.

I was hoping this would make a good sipping rum, but taking straight it's pretty harsh. However when combined with a heavy Citrus offset such a straight lime juice for a daiquiri it holds up very well.

45% ABV. The same (funky, young, Worthy Park, pot-still) distillate used for Hamilton Jamaican Pot Still Gold and Black was aged for 18 months in St. Lucia rum barrels, then blended with a light WP distillate and aged another few months. No coloring or sugar was added (unlike the Gold/Black), so this rum is nearly a white wine color. I wasn't sure whether to classify this as "Light" or "Gold," as it seems to sit somewhere (uncomfortably) in the middle.

The result? Meh. The St. Lucia casks donโ€™t seem to add very much in that small amount of time; I feel like I could achieve similar results by adding a drop of Hamilton SL rum to a pour of HPSG. I wonder if I was led astray by my expectations. It's very possible that if someone handed it to me saying "here's a great new rum for Daiquiris by reputable producers," and I didn't know what it was, I might just give it an 8. I'll need to re-try it sometime (and update my rating when I do). But for now, Iโ€™ll stick with the Pot Still Black.
