Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A 6.5 on my scale. Did not get as much of the Port flavor as I have from similarly aged rums. A bit of an afterburn when straight, but a nice oaky taste.
I like this rum but prefer something with a little bit more molasses.
Been to Antigua several times and this the best rum I’ve tasted from this brand. Amazing sipper for only 5 years of aging. The port finish improves this rum by leaps and bounds.
English Harbour have never disappointed me. Bought me this during a vacation in Antigua, have one from batch 001 since before without have tasting it. I also got the opportunity to get a guided tour at the distillery (ADL) and the “ageing house”. My fantastic guide who origins from Madeira and is related to the founders of the brand told me that the Port Cask Finish is the one of the three they’re most pleased with in batch 002 and “I’ll drink to that”.
I can tell you that this one has a fantastic nose. The taste is very distinct with great flavours and the afterburn is great.
Picture: My English Harbour shelf.
46% ABV. Faint nose. Aging: 5 years bourbon followed by 9 months port (the longest finish of the series).
Nose: standard EH, with some varnish? Palate: Great flavor, deep port-y notes, but can't really taste the extra strength (so, good thing this isn't 40%!).
These finishes are interesting, but rather overpriced IMO.
