It looks like the Jamaican portion of this rum from multiple islands dominates. It tasted so much like Hamilton's Jamaican Pot Still Gold that I already have back at home, so why pick up an entire bottle of this when I am in Texas in a few weeks?

I tasted one glass neat this evening at my favorite Tiki Bar called Latitude 29 by Beachbum Berry. I already knew that this is one of his staple mixers, and it would do a fine job at that. Sipping it neat was not offensive, but it felt like a rerun from Hamilton. My rating of 6 lets me know that I would consider buying it again someday, but it would be very low on my list. Anything that I rate at a 5 or below will never see me buy it again.

43% ABV. Pleasant, slightly harsh nose. Hint of Jamaican funk. This follows into the palate. There's also a good amount of brine. The addition of Panama, Java, and Guatemala (compared to the 5-Island) makes it richer, rounder, and a little sweeter on the nose—caramel, vanilla. Shortish finish.

This would be a fantastic "gold" mixing rum. It's got a little of everything. Maybe just a tad too sweet.

It may be an 8-, but I'm docking it for price (it's very good, but not a very good value) and misleading label. What the heck does that big 7 mean, anyway? (Presumably it's the number of countries represented, but the average consumer may be forgiven for assuming it was an age statement. Buyer beware.) Here's hoping future iterations will be a little stronger, cheaper, or offer more transparency.


The first smell was unimpressive with little aging and a bourbon note. The taste is better without much burn ,but a short spicey finish left this rum was disappointing.

Lol oak, molasses, pepper....all in all a good rum kinda falls into the ick of all trades master of none

Dry and spicy, not too sweet.
Not my favorite, but i don't mind sipping it.

Pepper, oak, some hogo, dry; overall a good balance.

Sugar test-

Smells and tastes of molasses, oak, spice (pepper), and walnuts. A bit dry, but still has a touch of sweetness.

A very good rum, especially for a gold rum.

Ce super rhum qui assemble avec brio 7 cask differents.ce qui ressort c la puissance en gout de la barbade et jamaisue avec un truc en plus.tres bien pour les en plus 40 euros c pas cher pour cette qualite.note 8.1.

This was drunk on the rocks and I think it is a mixer rum... So disappointed on the rocks

this blend compared to the 5 is not so heavy on the batavia arrack. It's not a bad sipper at all. The 5 is probably better for mixing as it is a tad funkier.

I have been a fan of the 5 islands (white) rum for a while, this was pretty much what I expected with some aged components blended in. Again the Batavia arrack component lands a degree of funkiness that makes this one unique. Dry and spicey, with a good deal of clove flavor I have found in some other blended rums such as Scarlet ibis.

I love this rum straight up, but I imagine it would make high-end cocktails really shine. A solid top-shelf choice. Yum.

Delicious. Worth the big hype, a well balanced rum of high value, drink this with respect.

Un rhum rond et sucré. Des notes de caramel et vanille. Pas trop fan mais bien fait

Mellow, toffee, sweet, a hint of wood and a little bit spicy, it tastes wonderful. It`s a rum that is easy to drink.
