This rum makes a good mixer but lacks age and has a dry burn when sipped. $29 at LCBO is the same as Bacardi Gold for a better rum.

Richland Single Estate Old Georgia Cask Strength review posted about 7 hours ago by Franklin Fraitus from United States with 26 ratings

I have a bottle from cask 226. I think the sticker said it was 111% alcohol, but I washed the bottle due to corona virus concerns and the sticker was damaged. In any case, it's strong stuff, with strong flavors and an equally strong aftertaste. There is something amazingly pleasant about taking a smol sip (yes, I know) from a glass of this stuff. You just can't mistake this stuff for it's weaker cousins.

About the taste of this bottle. It's not really sweet, so it does not have anything to hide the sharp alcohol characteristics and powerful rum flavor. Which is exactly what I want when purchasing "cask strength" anything. This is best described as a strong sipping rum.

Plantation Guatemala XO Single Cask Amburana Finish review posted about 7 hours ago by scottlalib from United States with 13 ratings

So smooth, and with multiple layers of flavor. Vanilla and butterscotch, a subtle tobacco note, with a sweet profile, but not too much so as to overwhelm. Reminds me of a complex Agricole. So tasty...

Wood's 100 Old Navy review posted about 11 hours ago by Fozzie500 from United Kingdom with 13 ratings

My dad has banged on about this rum for years, he was in the Royal Navy from the age of 15 until he was 23 and he always said it was the best rum he has tasted...... so i thought i better try a bottle.
Very dark coloured Rum looks like a proper traditional navy rum,it has a nice aroma when the stopper is pulled smells chocolaty and a sort of cinder toffee smell.
I tried it with coke first, and i have got to say its one of the best Rum and coke's I've ever had, how Lambs outsells this stuff i'll never know, a sweet toffee taste,a taste of raisins or sultana's.
Considering the strength it is very smooth,with a slight burnt after taste. overall very tasty rum.

Plantation 2003 Trinidad review posted about 11 hours ago by MerMama from United States with 23 ratings

This is a good rum. It starts out with a rich pineapple sugar flavor and branches out into some really nice fruity facets. Strong alcohol overtones. Honestly I get more bang for my buck with Stiggins or with Plantation 5 year.

Habitation Velier 2011 Hampden LFCH review posted about 11 hours ago by vomi1011 from Germany with 154 ratings

A nice Hampden, but not very complex.
You can taste the young freshness of this rum, if you dilute it. The aftertaste is the best spot.
70€ should be ok for this one.

Nose: Glue, vanilla, banana, citrus, rotten vegetable, salt
Taste initial/middle: Citrus, some banana, light vanilla
Finish: spice, barrel, salt, some bitterness
Aftertaste: some banana, prune, sesame, dentist/peppermint

Sweetness: 2/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Fruits: 3.5/5
Mildness: 3.5/5

Admiral Rodney HMS Royal Oak review posted about 13 hours ago by Bramski from Netherlands with 2 ratings

Lets start off with the design: it looks amazing! Nice bottle, interesting backstory and great colour of the drink itself.

The smell is not very prominent but there are some fruity elements in there to discover. Then the taste: again not very outspoken from the start but very, very smooth, without any too predominant sweetness or alcohol taste. Realy elegant and enjoyable. The aftertaste is spicy and has a nice duration. Remote but present burn, just the way I like it. Watch out, because this will be flying out of your glass! Cheers!

Ultimatum 2004 Fiji 12 2004 12-Year review posted about 13 hours ago by Bramski from Netherlands with 2 ratings

Puchased this bottle in Holland, where it was bottled. The label design is quite simple but the colour of the rum looks great. Eager to taste it but did not expect any miracles.

Nice sweet smell with a bit of vanilla. The tasta is quite simple, including fruit and wood tones. The aftertaste short and consists mainly of alcohol taste. No real complexion to it. Overall good value for money (€37) . Although its taste probably is not hard to forget, i consider it a nice addition to any collection if you want to try something new.

Havana Club Anejo Especial review posted about 14 hours ago by goggles139 from United Kingdom with 2 ratings

Shared with a friend. First neat, and then in Cuba Libra.
Drunk neat I found it have an initial throat burn which quickly faded. And then subtle vanilla flavors came through.
In Cuba Libra it made a lovely drink.
Would I purchase again?
Probably, but I have plenty other rums to try!

A perfect drink for those who want to be alone. It has a spicy, fruit and sweet taste.
Not that bad, and no regret.

Old Hopking Spiced Gold review posted about 23 hours ago by goggles139 from United Kingdom with 2 ratings

This is a budget supermarkets version of a premium spiced rum. It is more affordable, and definitely worth a try.
Did it match up to premium brands? No it didn't.
The purpose I brought this was for a party, ideally for others to mix and out of curiosity.
Did I like it? Personally, no.
However others did enjoy.
Try it. For the price, you may enjoy it.

"Ian H:

Thanks for the request! Only a few other reviewers here print the added sugar content of rums. I have come to the conclusion of rating 0-9 gpl of added sugar as being dry, but the purists would complain about this for not being totally zero. For rums with 10-19 gpl of added sugar, these are considered by me to be semi-dry. From 20-29 gpl of added sugar, these are indeed sweet (like Plantation XO). The sugar bombs like DRE and ED12 have 30-49 gpl of added sugar. Any "rum" having more than 49 gpl of added sugar is considered to be flavored with Malibu Coconut being the worst offender at 100 gpl of added sugar.

So where do I get my added sugar values from? Good old reliable Captain Jimbo's Rum Project and here is the link!

Great rum for mixing drinks, Dark and stormy's, rum and coke, really anything.

Also good for just drinking straight if you want rum but not excessive sweetness like Zaya

Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this with me as part of a rare rum exchange (you can't buy Cuban rums in the US).

Smells and tastes of molasses, tobacco, chocolate, and caramel (but not much sweetness). Really easy drinking and smooth.
