Smith and Cross
My favourite mixing rum when bold is required. It’s bold.
This is the last word, as far as I’m concerned, on commercially available 151s. Don’t fuck with it.
Martinique Hors d'Age 2013
Dry and very smooth agricole
Rhum agricole is a bit tough to find in my neck of the woods. This is one of the few I’ve tasted and yummmy smooth with a long pleasing finish.
Special Reserve 15-Year
Ya it’s smooth and rich
Everything a Demerara should be: irresistibly rich and smooth with dozens of complex subtleties... gonna take me a while to get to know it fully
2002 Single Vintage
Lovely expression, can’t say enough good things: if you’re drinking this you’re doing something right.
Gran Reserva 15-Year
A fine sipper
Nice and smooth, hints of coffee, toffee, and baking spice- yum!
The 12 year is a sweet intro to sipping rum. It’s sweet.
Wray & Nephew
Won’t drink a mai tai without it
It’s reputation is well deserved. 100% overburn hogo that will slap you hard.
My current go to for spiced rum. You can tell they put love into this one! Warm vanilla and baking spices abound.
Nice sipper, solid
Nice aged Jamaican goes will with most anything. Rich and smooth, but it’s funk is toned down somewhat; it’s dry with a slight burn.
Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
Benchmark flavoured rum
Not avail in BC Canada, but just come in fresh from HI. Tasty with pineapple in front almost to the cloying but immediately backs off into a more than
Original Dark Double Aged
A solid swap for Pusser’s
Rich caramel and baking spice... is it sweetened with added sugar??? Regardless, it stands out in most any mix calling for a dark. Recommended.
A solid cachaca
Not just for the inevitable caipirinhas. Heavy cane and grass notes and a pretty thick taste. Will stand out in any mixed drink!
Perfectly aromatic vanilla notes. A fine amber mixer, but in British Columbia overpriced.
Flor de Cana
Extra Dry 4
Rock solid white
Grassy but firm white that works well in -surprise- anything seco.
The overwhelming molasses kick makes it a rare use. However, it is smashing in a Cuba Libre or, of course, a Jungle Bird.
Classic history aside, it’s a rock solid poor: Painkillers yes, but a solid mixer with most.
Middle of the road
I'm inexperienced with cachaca, but was suitably satisfied with this one's bones tasted in a caipirinha or two.
Versatile and unfussy
Rich spice and smoky leather on the nose and then all smooth...
It’s Bermuda’s own
A national institution and major export. How does Gosling’s stack up? Well, in fact it’s pretty versatile and is a must with ginger beer. Definitely n
Nice rep of an unaged agrichole
Big vegetal funky aroma, clean grassy taste without too much sweet. Nice! Obviously works best in a ‘ti punch
I’d actually go 7.5, a fine representation
Disclaimer: I love Jamaican rums... you may or may not. This is the middle of the road Appleton mass market offering and it is a middle of the road. R
Good, but a bit of a disappointment
Classic Jamaican sipper yes, but does it bring much more to the table than the Appleton 12???
A perfectly serviceable Jamaican expression for mixing. No it won’t slap you upside your head with hogo, but it’s quite nice in a modest way.
Cuban rums aren’t my preferred. However, Havana club is a decent mixer that I happily pawn off on guests for daiquiris and, of course, mojitos. Turns
Alas no Bayou
I had hoped for more given the storied name, but no luck. Fair enough in a mix, fine with coke, happiest with ginger beer, but beyond that a let down
A fine Demerara
Quite nice, a shade below el dorado 12 but far up from the lemon hart 1804!
Decent enough as a Jamaican mixer, but lord have mercy bumboclaat, there is so much better.
Palatable, with some qualities
Far from decent, but can stand in for virgin islands mixer I suppose... call me crazy, but it’s got the same profile to me!
In the shadow, but mixes
Obviously not in the same league as it’s 151 brethren; the wonderful nose isn’t carried through. A wonderful expression of Demerara as a mixer however
Wel... it’s palatable with cola. In fact, it tastes like cola syrup. Spiced runs aren’t my thing, but even if they were, this’d be middle of the road
8 Gran Reserva
I resent the trash that is Bacardi, that said this is closer to tolerable then most of their bilge
Don’t drink this
This worthless boiled gutter piss is an offense to the spirit: if this is your rum of choice you have no business being on this site... or consuming a
