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.

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

It was a great little mixed. Nothing crazy, but not terrible.

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 canโ€™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 โ€œ a real snapperโ€. 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

This was one of the first rums I sipped and realize that rum could be worth sipping. Interesting blend - if it was slightly less expensive it'd be my go-to for gold rum.

Strong alcohol on the nose that slightly overpowers the aroma. I can definitely taste the Jamaican rum in the blend. Flavor is a bit dull overall. Price point was a bit high.
