Navy Island Navy Strenght review posted 7 hours ago by Mo McGurk ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 250 ratings

Molasses is what I smell. My wife, raisins. ย Still working out the flavors. The 11 various pots might be a few too many, as I am not quite there on the taste.ย  A 4.5 on my scale

Holmes Cay Estico Edito rum

Holmes Cay Estico Edito review posted 7 hours ago by Mo McGurk ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 250 ratings

With the 3 different rum traditions that make it up, I really wanted this one to be better. It wasnโ€™t bad or anything, just not special. No one flavor controlled, but conversely the blend just wasnโ€™t that interesting. Straight a little better than mixed.

Priced right at $30. No distinctive flavors, but not bad. Mixed and straight about the same.ย 


Travellers 1 Barrel rum

Travellers 1 Barrel review posted 8 hours ago by Mo McGurk ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 250 ratings

A vanilla flavor, which suggested some added ingredients. For $14, however, I can overlook it. The burn was somewhat mild for this price point. Surprisingly, it did not mix as well as I would have thought.

Bapt & Clem's 5-Year review posted 8 hours ago by Mo McGurk ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 250 ratings

I have not tried Bapt and Clem's before, and will definitely be on the look-out for others. It's finished in late harvest barrels. There's a strong oak flavor with a little sweetness. Also, a solid mixer, but why waste it?

compared to the 12 a little rounder, more oak and less funk, slightly better, if it costs a little more than the 12 try it

Sweet, smooth, with an interesting rye spiciness. I coincidentally had it with cornbread and they paired wonderfully. But for the price, I had higher expectations.

4x50 4x7 X.O. Single Vintage Prime review posted at Hidden Harbor 13 hours ago by beeporama (PREMIUM) ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 89 ratings

"50% distilled in Austria by Hans Reisetbauer; 50% sourced from an undisclosed distillery in Jamaica." I'm a fan of Jamaican style rum, and this smooth drinker brings tasty plantain and cinnamon flavors I enjoy. Although without additives, there is a bit more vanilla sweetness than I personally care for. Accessible, I think most people would like it okay, but it left me just wanting Appleton instead.

Clement 2002 15-Year rum

Clement 2002 15-Year review posted 14 hours ago by Stefan Persson (PREMIUM) ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช | 503 ratings

Had a glass of this Agricole after a better dinner at The Oyster Bar in Stockholm.
It was distilled in 2002 from pure cane juice from the estates own harvests and aged in French oak barrels at the distillery for 15 years before bottled in 2017.
On the nose itโ€™s woody, spicy and fruity with some sweetness and hints of vanilla.
At the palate itโ€™s very soft, elegant and well balanced with flavors of oak, fruits, vanilla, spices and some hints of smoke and tobacco.
The finish is rather long and spicy with hints of honey.

I have tried this and it is pretty funky, has hugo and noticed the taste stays in your mouth, stomach, burp this taste until the next day. Kind of oily. I tried it in Tiki drinks, Mai Tai and not what I would consider to use.

English Harbour 5-Year rum

English Harbour 5-Year review posted 14 hours ago by Rico ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 11 ratings

I like this for Tiki drinks. It has a drier taste to me. I use this instead of other dry rums like, Clement VOSP, Plantation Dry, and other Martinique rums, rums that have more a dry whiskey taste that is needed for a Tiki drink and then I add another rich or more funky rum to the drink. It is a good all around rum. I have trouble finding it.

Plantation Overproof O.F.T.D. review posted 14 hours ago by Rico ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 11 ratings

I like this for Tiki Drinks. It does not overpower the drink like Lemon Hart. It is a nice blend that works as added richness and bite and as a floater. I usually use a 1/4 to 1/2 oz of it in a drink with other rums.

I have tried about 1/4 of the Rums on here, and no way can review them all. I do review a few that I still like or stand out. I do mostly Tiki drinks. This is one of my favorites as it cuts through and has the flavor and richness I am looking for.

I like this one as a sipper. Put in a couple of ice cubes and sip it. Nice easy drinking rum. This is good like Diplomatico Exclusiva and Flora de Cana 12 or 18 year. These are all nice balanced enjoyable sipping rums under 50 dollar range.

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rum

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva review posted 15 hours ago by Rico ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 11 ratings

I have tried many Rums, and this one is a good all around sipper, It was also priced at about 30 + dollars. Would recommend to people who have not tried rums as sippers. Poor it over 1-3 ice cubes. Has a good balance and enough sweetness. It makes a great daiquiri too. Fresh 1/2 to 3/4 oz lime juice, 1 & 1/2 to 2 oz of rum, one teaspoon simple syrup, shake over ice and strain.

I bought the 2009 version from the distillery whilst on honeymoon in 2015. It is a very complex rum that may well be more than my simple palate can deal with, but even I still enjoyed it. Slight vanilla and spice with a lovely smooth finish.

Merser & Co Double Barrel rum

Merser & Co Double Barrel review posted 19 hours ago by lukasz ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ | 15 ratings

You can feel the scent of fruit and vanilla as soon as you open the bottle. Initially, the alcohol is well hidden, I feel something like orange, then I feel the barrel and spicy spices. The finish is relatively long, burning, a bit oaky, alcoholic, but there is also something sweet there.
For me 7/10
