Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
On the dry side with little fruity, baking spice or floral notes to sweeten it up. Has some dryer notes like leather, tobacco, wood and earthy tones. Makes for a decent mixer but not very good as a sipper. Can't find this too often but if you do pick up a bottle for your rum collection.
The theme is smoke, together with earth, licorice and leather.
I do not smoke, but I figure it would go along very nicely with a good cigar.
It is smooth and the taste develops in a fine way.
With a very distinct taste it might not be everybody`s choice. But if you do like cigars I would strongly suggest to give this one a try.
This is the rum that opened the door to the wonderful world of rums for me, it no longer is my go-to rum but it still is a rather satisfying in a Cuba Libre.
A little flat but it fills the spit when there's nothing else lol
Needs a little spice to finish it off, flavor is a little flat
Clean, crisp and rich caramelly goodness. Like a less syrupy sweet version of old Sam, only more expensive.
This is a good party/ mixing rum it has an alright taste but I do not recommend it neat.
This is the first "decent" rum I ever had and it was turned me into a rum drinker. Now I keep it in my bar for mixing with coke or other mixers, my wife loves it with eggnog at Christmas time.
This isn't often present in the liquor stores I shop in but I've had it and don't mind it.
Quite a nice Demerara mixing rum.
Nothing spectacular and outshone by the 151
Not smooth enough to sip straight, but full of character with a very interesting, almost spicy flavour.
Nice to have a rum that you can still taste in a mix drink.
I wasn't expecting much as this rum very much plays second fiddle to the 151 in this brand but I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this offering.
Deep dark chocolate notes followed by molasses a little bit of spice. Reminds me of chilly spiked dark chocolate. Not noticeably harsh in any way, I could get used to this as a desert rum.
The bottle was reasonably priced at 27 Canadian and I expect it will be a fairly permeant fixture on my shelf.
This is a great rum for tiki drinks and tropical rum cocktails! An old classic...but not as great as the 151...not as much of a sipper as it`s a mixing rum.
