Blackwell Black Gold Special Reserve rum

Blackwell Black Gold Special Reserve review posted less than a minute ago by Fourrunner08 from United States with 8 ratings

I like dark rums and I like this one very sweet like molasses. You'll need to add a few drops of water to tone down the sweetness and open it up.

Ron Zacapa 23 Solera review posted 7 minutes ago by Fourrunner08 from United States with 8 ratings

This rum was great when it first came out. It was a home run from first bottle
But now it has lost some of its taste since its mass produced but still very good. Sweeter than when they produces their first batch.

This is one of my go to rums.
Sweet not sugary and goes down with very little bite. A sipper any time and with a couple of drops of water it's just opens it up.

Rum Nation Jamaica Pot Still 5-Year rum

Rum Nation Jamaica Pot Still 5-Year review posted 2 hours ago by Mr. Rumantic from Germany with 68 ratings

The Rum Nation Jamaica Rum was stored in bourbon barrels for about 3 years and then again for about 2 years in Oloroso Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry barrels. The rum was made in Pot Still in the St. Catherine Distillerie (Worthy Park) and bottled with 50% alcohol without any colouring or additives. For a rather young rum it is quite dark and the bottle is nice to look at.

In the nose the Jamaica funk comes through immediately. Light adhesive and a lot of ripe but also fresh fruit. Some menthol and light seasoning swing along. The PX barrel is rather weakly represented here and shows itself from time to time. Exciting. For the nose, Jamaica rums are so interesting. On the palate, the rum is strong with a good body. Raisins and tropical fruits come through. Dried fruit and pastry spices pair with a little vanilla. The whole thing is rounded off with sweet sherry notes that catch the Jamaican well without killing it. The alcohol distributes the aromas well and warms wonderfully. Who knows how to take the 50% should tolerate the sharpnes easily. The finish is fruity with some solvent. What was surprising was how long the rum would remain present in the mouth.

I can't understand the many average reviews. The rum is very good and deserves an 8.5 because it is beautifully complex. The Oloroso finish is well done and the short storage makes the rum fruity and wild. For less than 50 euros really a lot of rum. It is not a rum for every day or in between. He wants to be drunk consciously. Top.

Der Rum Nation Jamaica Rum wurde erst ca. 3 Jahre in Bourbon Fässern gelagert und dann noch einmal für ca. 2 Jahre in Oloroso Pedro Ximenez (PX) Sherry Fässern. Der Rum wurde im Pot Still in der St. Catherine Distelerie (Worthy Park) hergestellt jnd ohne Farb- oder Zusatzstoffe mit 50% Alkohol abgefüllt. Für einen eher jungen Rum ist er recht dunkel und die Flasche ist schön anzusehen.

In der Nase kommt sofort der Jamaica Funk durch. Leichter Klebstoff und viel reife aber auch frische Frucht. Etwas Menthol und leichte Würze schwingen mit. Das PX Fass ist hier eher schwach vertreten und zeigt sich hin und wieder. Spannend. Für die Nase sind Jamaica Rums einfach interessant. Am Gaumen ist der Rum kräftig mit einem guten Körper. Rosinen und tropische Früchte kommen durch. Trockenobst und Gebäck Gewürze paaren sich mit etwas Vanille. Abgerundet wird das ganze mit süßen Sherry Noten welche den Jamaikaner gut einfangen ohne ihn zu erledigen. Der Alkohol verteilt die Aromen gut und wärmt wunderbar. Wer die 50% zu nehmen weiß sollte die Schärfe gut vertragen. Der Abgang ist fruchtig mit etwas Lösungsmittel. Überraschend war wie lange der Rum im Nachklang präsent bleibt.

Ich kann die vielen durchschnittlichen Bewertungen nicht verstehen. Der Rum ist sehr gut und verdient eine 8.5 da er schön komplex ist. Das Oloroso Finish ist gut gelungen und die kurze Lagerung macht den Rum fruchtig und wild. Für unter 50 Euro ist das echt viel Rum. Ist kein Rum für jeden Tag oder Zwischendurch. Er möchte bewusst getrunken werden. Top.

...und das zu einem sehr guten Preis.
Mit reichlich Wasser getrunken, erinnert er mich an „Pflaume in Madeira“.

This rum was recommended to me by my favorite liquor store. The owner is an whiskey and rum fanatic. And his judgement was spot on. This rum is really soft. With a hint of banana in it. Bit sweet. And at this point my favorite rum. Great for drinking pure.

La Favorite La Flibuste rum
Ffffff

La Favorite La Flibuste review posted 4 hours ago by Rei from Germany with 103 ratings

Had the chance to taste the 1995 vintage (aged for 25 years). What a nice rum. Fruitiness and smoothness dominate from the first nosing until the very extended finish. The cellar master has made a great job as neither spiciness nor smoke flavors overpower the fruity flavor of the rhum. Given the 40% degree of alcohol the flavor intensity is substantial. In terms of quality this is a clear 10-grade for me. The only downside is (a) the expensive price and (b) the apparently reduced aging period (23 years) for the 1997 vintage which is currently sold at unchanged prices.

William Hinton 6-Year rum
Ffffff

William Hinton 6-Year review posted 4 hours ago by Rei from Germany with 103 ratings

This rum is made from freshly pressed sugar cane juice from Madeira island. It is distilled by the Engenho Novo do Madeira distillery using a continuous still (copper column) which was refurbished when the distillery was reopened in 2006. The William Hinton family and the associated distillery can look back to a century+ history of sugar & rum production. Local aging of 6 years using a variety of oak barrels, especially French oak. Nosing reveals very fruity aroma of raisins, brown sugar and figs. Palate starts smoothly, then turning into vegetal notes together with flavor of wood and nuts. Dry and fruity finish. Overall the palate clearly reveals that this is an Agricole style rum but I experienced it as much sweeter and less spicy compared e.g. to a VSOP or XO rhum from Martinique. As such this rum might be interesting especially for those used to (sweeter) molasse based rums and who are looking for an entry point into the world of agricole styled rums. Real grade is 7.5-8.0, have included it therefore in the 8-grade cluster.

"First of all, I’m no expert at this. I'm sure there are many members who are much better at this subject than I am, so this are just my thoughts on the subject and how I handle it.
To divide rum according to Spanish, English and French style isn’t very good in my opinion, but I also do so most of the time.
It’s actually much better to divide by production method and raw material in accordance with the Gargano system.
However, I believe that we will have to live with the first dividing for the foreseeable future.
But it’s not only within the English style that the production methods differ between the distilleries, it also applies to the other two styles.
The English style is in normally always molasses based, even if there are deviations. St. Lucia distillers for example also mix in cane juice based rum in the 1931 series.
Molasses also differs, above all Guyana (Demerara) molasses based rum differs in taste from rum distilled from other molasses.
Then we have the distillation method, where the English style uses both pot stills and column stills, but not the 5-column “industrial” stills that’s very common in production of the Spanish styled rum.
The above mentioned makes me subdivide the English style into:
Demerara (both pot still and a blend of pot still and column still) rom,
Pot still (for example, Hampden and Worthy Park from Jamaica) rum,
Blend of Pot still and Column still (for example, most of the rum from Barbados and Jamaica) rum,
Column still (for example, English Harbour and many others not included in the above mentioned) rum."
