Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Rums under the English Harbour label are produced from fermented molasses via copper pot distillation. Maturation takes place in small 220 litre x-whisky and bourbon barrels. This 'Reserve' bottling has been aged for a minimum of 10 years, with components up to 25 years of age included in the final blend.
Taste like EL15
Got this as a gift. It is very good. It tastes like carmel love
Cruising through the Eastern Caribbean, I had my shopping list I had prepared early on. I did not have the 10 year old on my list, but, having found it to very elusive, my quest was laid out for me. After an afternoon of searching, I found one bottle. I saved it to share with my son. It was worthy, all that I sought in a really good rum. I have difficulty in finding it close by here in Florida, as is even the 5 year old.
Fortunately, I have friends that appreciate a variety of good spirits, and will shop as we travel. May your spirit be with you in your search of heavenly nectar so.
Purchased this due to my love of English Harbour 5 year. I is better than the 5 year but only slightly. Would give it an 8.5 if i could. Surprisingly, not very sweet but has a great finish of vanilla.
This is a delicious rum for sipping neat because it has an abundance of warm flavors...toffee, coffee, vanilla, burnt sugar and some spice. It's mighty fine and perhaps worth a nine rating but the price (US $95) knocks it down a solid notch. I can buy 4 bottles of Seale 10yo rum for less than the price of just 1 bottle of this rum, also 10 years old. No contest.
This rum has an initial sweetness to it, albeit mild, that is overtaken by a nice buttery spiciness with oak undertones. It has a decent burn to it but is not harsh at all. Then the burns fades into a bit of vanilla and caramel with a little bitterness leaving the tongue tingling. Definitely a fine rum. For me this is not a sipping rum but others might enjoy it as such. I prefer it in Coke Zero.
Smells of oak, bourbon, molasses, toffee, and vanilla. The taste adds some spice. It’s a bit dry for my liking, but smooth and easy drinking.
This is a good dry rum. However, I prefer a touch more sweetness.
We brought a bottle back from Antigua and I really enjoyed sipping it. In fact, I enjoyed it so much... it is now gone. I got a bottle of the 1981 for Christmas, so I'm happy now.
This a good rum for sipping. A little ice mellows down the small burn and improves the taste. The price is in my opinion to high for this rum. Next wil be the English Harbour 1981.
It has been a few years since I tried the English Harbour 5y and I remember it to be very harsh. The 10y English Harbour is not harsh at all, but simply super dry. It would easily score 7 if you are a fan boy for dry rums, but I like mine sweet, so it gets a 5.
Quite a smooth Rum this..not too vanillery (if thats a word). Cost from Antigua on holiday was a little on the high side tbh.
I bought a bottle back from Antigua as a souvenir. A little too much alcohol in the nose but a really good sipping rum. I found a little splash of water improved the overall flavour.
Really enjoyed my first taste of this offering from Antigua. From the first look at the classy bottle, a solid proper cork and a wonderful colour, i wasn't disappointed.
Very smooth sipping rum, very little if any burn, and a lasting taste, that somehow reminds me of leather, puts this rum in my " not to be mixed" group.
Mixing this with anything other than ice or a drop of water would be doing the rum a disservice in my opinion.
Un rom sobru, gust bogat dar fără un aftertaste impresionant. Un rom corect! :)
Not a bad little drop of rum, can be a bit harsh but not to bad for a sipping rum
En rom jeg smagte på en af min besøg på den dejlige caribiske ø Antigua.
Den er for tør efter min smag, vi europæere er meget til de lidt mere søde rommer, men har dejlige noter af frugt og kanel.
E un rom in cel mai pur stil englesesc, cu un gust bogat dar fara o personalitate bine definita. Persista aromele din cauza varstei dar se putea mai mult. Ma asteptam la mai mult.
...you get very sharp alcohol in your mouth. It's a pity - in the nose, there ist coffee, cocoa nut, a little bit of cinnemon: a pretty interesting mixture. Unfortunately, after a few seconds on your tongue, all that is lost. And the same for the finishing. But all in all still recommendable to most. ;o)
Milde würze und getrocknete Früchte und minimal Kokosnuss
Good oay rum. It is has a nice finish that makes it refreshing. Dry with vanilla and spice.
For the price you pay in comparison to others in this price range I feel it comes up a bit short.
Its a drier rum with a alcohol bite but give it time and you will like it. The 25 is better this I feel falls flat but it's worth buying if you enjoy rums to see how good this is with others the same age
one of the best rums i had they mixed it with coconut water for me its really balanced rum
Tried it for the first time tonight. Was surprised at the ethanol bite at first but it really opened up with subsequent sips and hand warming.
Engels Harbour 10 jaar is een expressief rum met subtiele hints van kokos, kaneel, tropische vruchten, bloemige tonen en hints van koffie en gebakken appels.
