Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Certainly drinkable, enjoyable rum. Pleasant molasses and caramel nose, and based on that, surprisingly big, slightly bitter first taste on the tongue. definitely spicy at first, but flavors (spices, some clove, drying quickly) don't last. probably better in a cocktail - given initial big spice. Can drink alone, but there are better options for neat rums.
It is on the bottom end of English Harbours line, so I shouldn't have expected much.
Certainly stronger than the 23, but a nice oaky aftertaste just the same.
Nice semi-dry Rom from Antigua.
Just the right amount of sweetness for a good neat sipper.
surprisingly smooth for a rum at this price point! recommended to people who want an affordable, inoffensive and slightly sweet sipper. not really enough oomph to be interesting for mixing.
This is low price rum, so I did not expect much.
I was surprised to drink.
The arome is like a butter caramel. Taste is sweet and smooth, a little creamy, easy to drink.
This is not the best rum, but it is very good taste for this price.
I was probably spoiled by trying the 10 yr old a few weeks back as that was delicious.. but this is fine just not as good. Nice caramel , vanilla and molasses on the nose. Dryish rum in the mouth , spicey , a bit smokey.
Short finish , maybe a bit thin.
It is a sipper but to me a good quality mixer both with cola or ginger beer. Also makes a great " Old Fashioned"
I find it rather harsh. The nose isn't half-bad, but I strain to search for interesting and pleasant qualities. The distillate seems to be of poor quality, which is turned to depend heavily on the cask to both clean it up and add pleasant qualities. Maybe the older ones are better, but I actually don't care much for this one...
Ωραίο not sweet rum . Στιβαρό (θυμίζει whiskey) και σου αφήνει μια ευχάριστη αίσθηση στο τελείωμα (Επιβεβαιώνει το ότι είναι ρούμι). Τίμιο , λογικό γι αυτούς που δεν τους αρέσουν τα λικέρ. Δεν μπαίνει στη λίστα με τα αγαπημένα μου (8+) .... για λίγο ..... αλλά είναι από τις ευχάριστες δοκιμές μου !!!!!
This rum has s bit of a hard taste and is very warming inside. Not a favorite, but will do in a bind.
Not bad, not amazing, nice middle of the road rum. Nice aroma when opened, pleasant tasting but does not last as long as I would have liked. Overall it's W good value mixer which can also be sipped.
This is my favorite ''cheap rum''. Good on it's own or mixed with water and a splash of cola.
An honest & robust, but not harsh rum, although with no special character or something really remarkable about it (but, hey, we are talking about a 5-years old rum, right!?). Spicyness & oakiness in right measure give this rum a warm aftertaste, and its price is a definite plus! A nice surprise!
The nose is oaky and fruity with notes of gentle stone fruits and spice. The palate is full of orchard fruit notes, a little tropical fruit and winter spice, notes of smoke and tropical tiki cocktails. The finish is sweet and spiced.
A very good rum with hints of molasses and some tannins from the oak. Ok on its own but better in tiki drinks.
I really enjoy this rum. It is very approachable and an easy drinker. On the nose I find vanilla, caramel, molasses, coconut. The taste is actually a little less complex; molasses, oak, spice and ripe banana. All good things - nothing to complain about.
It sells for about $30 here. Excellent value!
I tried this the other day. Was suprised how nice it tasted & how little it cost.
It's got a hint of vanilla and toffee/caramel. Little oak/sherry or walnut in there as well. Very good for it's price. Enjoyable for sure.
Not horrible but nothing to write home about. Decent with Coke.
Not quite as smooth as it's older brother, but for a 5yr old it's a lot smoother than some other older rums.
Great nose, very slight burn that fades quite quickly, leaving a lingering flavour mix..
For the price it's excellent.
Sampled this rum at Cardiff Rum Festival one of the stall holders had this bottle hidden as his special reserve and managed to get a sip. Decent sipper from what I can remember must sample some older expressions.
A friend of mine's favorite wjich jas found its way into my cabinet. I often go to it when having a few rum and colas while watching the game.
This rum must be the best you can get to this ridiculous low price. I haven’t found anyone that can compete so far. It’s an everyday rum to an exceptionally low price.

Didn’t expect the five year to be this good but I really like it
