Have had many many different barrels of this and all I've had were very cinnamon forward with great flavor. I cant wait this ee what they do as their product ages further.

This is good! I came back to increase my rating score after a second tasting.
Great nose. Taste of pepper, vanilla, nutmeg. Delicious. Thick, coats the pallet. Cinnamon notes. Not sweet. No additives! Smooth with a really great warm finish. Not overly complex. Just damn good. I prefer this one neat to on the rocks. This is a formidable, delicious sipping rum. I give it a 9.1 and will conclude this review so I can pour another.

Toffee, biscuit, oak, vanilla, and pineapple on the nose. Cask strength really comes through. Clove, pencil shavings and cedar, brown sugar and leather on the palette. Allspice and tobacco on a long finish.

Top shelf rum if you can find it. According to Wayne Curtis (author of And A Bottle Of Rum) it is the best rum he’s had.

I thought I enjoyed the Navy Yard most, but this one beats it as far as a sipper goes. Real smooth cinnamon, caramel, and date on the pallet.

Tried it at the Chicago Rum Fest
Was surprisingly good - Medium bodied with qualities similar to a younger Foursquare. Fat, sweet, and caramelized rum flavors.

Barrel number P601, USA, 54.9% ABV, single cask
Distilled from "evaporated cane juice crystals, real boiled brown sugar, and Grade A molasses" (from the Privateer website).
"The rum is double distilled, first in a thousand-gallon Vendome pot, then in a copper eau-de-vie still, a hybrid pot/column still with an adjustable plate configuration. The Queen's Share is a revival of an historic style of rum, produced by introducing an additional cut between the heart and the tails, containing some of the richest spirits but also many heavy spirits from the tails. After collecting several such cuts from numerous batches of each of its spirit runs, which then includes a variety of sugarcane strains, the liquid is re-distilled to remove the overly heavy tails spirits from the heart." - from a Rum Auctioneer posting for this barrel.
My understanding is that Privateer varies the casks and aging lengths for different bottlings of Queen's Share, so this review may not be applicable to other iterations.
The nose for me is not very complex - some menthol and spice. Very pleasantly surprised by the volume of flavor on the palate - cinnamon, orange rind, and mint. Very pleasing and gratifying for a short maturation. I would buy this again, and will seek out other Privateer releases.
That said, I would love to know EXACTLY what is in it and how was made. Privateer, you're making great rum. Feed the geeks and tell us what this particular bottling entailed!

Cask strength gives this rum a chance to really shine with notes of citrus, baking spices, and a hint of leather. This is seriously good rum.

Those that have called this a sipper, my hat is off to you. Tried sipping but too strong, call me a baby. Great flavor though with club soda and a little lemon. Not sweet at all, vanilla, maybe clove or allspice hints. One of the good ones

Big, rich overproofed and beautifully balanced. A sipper
