Sampled at the Laka Lono Rum Club tasting on 5/28/20. Pours a rich gold color. Upfront pepper. Tannins and oakiness. You know you've tasted the barrel on this one.

Sampled at the Laka Lono Rum Club tasting on 5/14/20. Gold in color with a doughy aroma. Sandalwood is the dominant thing going on here. Mint and stevia. Mild cinnamon. Smooth palate with a big mouthfeel thickness.

Tasted at laka lono. I think the 12 is better. Or at least as good. The banana sweetness with vanilla notes are all present. This has a bit more body and goes down a little hotter than the 12.

El Dorado 12-Year rum

First tasted at the Palace Cafe in New Orleans. I'll fight anyone who doesn't like this rum. Ruby red color. Butterscotch and anise to the aroma. The balance of pepper-alcohol-honey sweetness is near perfect to my tastes. Plus, this remains a crazy great price by comparison to the longer aged offerings by Diamond.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 2/11/20. This seems more like a single malt whiskey than a rum. Both pepper and licorice flavors.Vanilla and apricot. A blend of pot pourri and sawn lumber.

Bayou White rum

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/28/20. Pours clear. This has the aroma of mayonnaise. Reminds me of church fluff dessert. So awful, I could not drink it neat and had the rest made into a daiquiri. That sucked also.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/23/20. Pours a gold color. Has a buttery, diacetyl aroma. Yummy butterscotch, caramels, brown sugar with just a hint of oakiness. Very smooth and an easy drinker in a neat pour. Nice.

Tattersall Blackstrap rum

Tattersall Blackstrap review posted 1 hour ago by Cool Breeze ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 124 ratings

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/23/20. Pours clear (not black). Earthy aroma. No sulfur or smokiness at all. I'm not sure how to characterize this other than warn you that it does not have any of the blackstrap character sought for making tiki drinks such as the Jungle Bird. Somewhat medium palate, no nasty burn of many craft rums. Little or no sweetness. An odd duck with a misnomer.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/21/20. Pours clear. Birthday cake aroma. Big vanilla sweetness. This is so tasty it makes me reset on clear non-agricole rums.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/19/20. This was the earlier version of the rum that they have reconfigured as reserva. Big banana aroma. Sweetness to first taste with a mild pepper finish. A big banana flavor persists. Cloves. Vanilla. Finishes mild.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/14/20. My first Austrian rum. This makes for a good mixing rum, but likely not to be consumed neat. Vanilla aroma, soft caramel. The pepper burn clings on your tongue.

Foursquare 2005 Isonomy 17-Year rum

Foursquare 2005 Isonomy 17-Year review posted 2 hours ago by RWB ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 1 rating

Rather than dissect individual aspects of this finest of Bajan rum Iโ€™ll simply post an overall impression. Having purchased many of the ECS this Isonomy is by a substantial margin my favorite. Appealing dark appearance. Rich, deep and complex nose.

The palate extends the complexity with deep pit fruits caramel, butter creme and spices. Just the hints of menthol and orange, but oh so well balanced. Not heavy cinnamon like some in the series display. The mouth feel is liquid velvet. Excellent long finish.

It is at a higher price point than many, but this Isonomy rum is one of a few high dollar spirits I can state shows good value for money. Highest recommendation, donโ€™t leave on the store shelf if you are lucky to see it.
