Banks 7 Golden Age rum is created from a combination of 23 rums from around the world, including Panama, Barbados, Trinidad, and others. The rums are aged between 1-7 years in ex-Bourbon casks.
The Banks name is derived from explorer Sir Joseph Banks, who sailed with the famous Captain James Cook in the 1700s.

I have been a fan of the 5 islands (white) rum for a while, this was pretty much what I expected with some aged components blended in. Again the Batavia arrack component lands a degree of funkiness that makes this one unique. Dry and spicey, with a good deal of clove flavor I have found in some other blended rums such as Scarlet ibis.
I had a higher expectation for this one. Too strong of an afterburn. No particular flavor either straight or mixed.
Smells and tastes of molasses, oak, spice (pepper), and walnuts. A bit dry, but still has a touch of sweetness.
A very good rum, especially for a gold rum.
Mellow, toffee, sweet, a hint of wood and a little bit spicy. Most likely there`s sugar added to the rum but I don`t know.
Tasted at Laka Lono on 12/17/19. Pours dark amber. Bananas and acetone. Brown sugar. Palate is a bit harsh. Mild in flavor. A so-so rum.
In a bar at Parsons Green and it was good to see a selection on the shelf. Never had this rum before, plenty of vanilla not a lot of fire
George would have liked this. This is good rum. This has some bite. Nice strong rum with a heavy finish. Vanilla with almond and molasses notes. A minty note that I can’t quite place. Good body. At the very end it finishes a little harsh. But overall damn good for a 7 year old. As Mr Banks would say “ a real snapper”. Really a 7.3-7.5.
Overall it's good on the rocks. Not too much of a burn as other reviewers stated. Slightly sweet, would be my go to as a mixer if the price wasn't as high
Try to get a well lit shot from the front of the rum label
