Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Time for Birka’s rumcruise 2019 at the Baltic Sea were I tasted this. The person representing it told me it’s a blend of rum from Trinidad, Jamaica, Guyana and Barbados and that the make the blending in Sweden.
I can recognise fruit and chocolate, but what makes it so special is the strength.
I didn’t buy it but my son did.
Bonne attaque, tout de suite les arômes emplissent le palais. J’aurais mis 7,5.
Nose: overripe banana and a hint of white chocolate or creme and dried apricot. Also smell of medical bandages, if you take a nose with a full mouth of rum, crazy :D
Body: Very powerful, however, not too strong for 65 Vol. %. Bitter herbs and some banana again. Also roasted brazil nuts. Unfortunately it also tastes slightly rotten for me, but not too worse at this point.
Finish: oak and black cacao beans, the roasty-toasty aroma stays some time.
Okay, I gave 8/10 points, nevertheless, I would not drink this rum the whole evening ... one glass is enough ...
Great blend of various pot still rums (Jamaica; Worthy Park. Barbados; Foursquare. Trinidad; Angostura (column still). Guyana; Port Mourant.) that gives this rum a bold and tasteful character, just as a navy rum should be. It’s cask strength gives at the first sip a fiery burn of alcohol but at second sip a jungle of flavours are to be discovered. Well worth a try.
Helles Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase ein breite Palette an Düften, fruchtig leicht und herb schwer zugleich.
Im Gaumen da geht's ab, die 65% hauen voll rein, der wuchtige Körper eines Demerara Rum verstärkt mit der Tiefe von Trinidad. Die Leichtigkeit und Fruchtigkeit von Barbados werden vom Jamaikanischem Funk begleitet. Wow, was für ein Erlebnis.
Im Abgang sehr lang und "feurig".
Ein wirklich gut gemachter Navy Rum so richtig rustikal und heavy. Bringt Fans von Overproof Rums zum strahlen und Einsteiger zum staunen.
Bright amber in the glass.
In the nose a wide range of fragrances, fruity light and tart heavy at the same time.
On the palate there it goes off, the 65% full hit, the massive body of a Demerara rum reinforced with the depth of Trinidad. The lightness and fruitiness of Barbados are accompanied by Jamaican funk. Wow, what an experience.
On the finish very long and "fiery".
A really well made Navy Rum really rustic and heavy. Make fans of Overproof Rums smile and newcomers amazed.
The aroma opens with arrack, buttercup, roasted nuts and dried apricots. The taste follows the scent but adds honeycomb, grass, milk chocolate and vanilla. The finish is very long and fades in almost creamy tones.
Gunroom Navy Rum is made with a blend of rums from a number of origins including Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad and Jamaica. It's been bottled at a rather generous 65% so you get some serious flavors and then some! Surprisingly light on color. Overproof rums sometimes struggle with clear flavor profiles.
