Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
What a rare bottle the WM Cadenhead Green Label 11 year old Demerera rum from Guyana was to find and what a massive disappointment. Smell is like rubber, color is pale with no legs at all, taste is pure alcohol and it will leave this punch of a burn for you at the end. WM Cadenhead rums are not for me, but if you like your rums dry, then go ahead and venture it out.
The rum is reminiscent of smoking a good cigar, not in that it tastes like tobacco, but it evokes that dry, dark experience. Fruit on the nose, but the flavor doesn't match for me. Could pass for a whisky or fine bourbon, doesn't seem to have that rum profile.
I had high hopes for this because of a relatively high price ($72.99, 2016).
But it's a bit dry for my liking, and though very unique, it lacked many of the flavors I'm used to in a good rum. Smells and tastes of a peppery spice, with some fruitiness, and a little whiskey. A bit strong for my liking at 46% abv (I usually only like rums this strong if I rate them an 8 or more).
Not enough "rum" flavor for me. Ok, but not worth the money imho.
