Excerpt: Overall it’s not a bad rum. Unfortunately in the context of Jamaican rum and the ready availability of much better rums (both as sippers and mixers) it isn’t a rum I would really look to seek out.
Excerpt: Personally I think a little more ageing or a little more finishing might have been nice, just to round things out and sand the rough edges off a shade more – this is, after all, not even a six year old rum, but a blend of pot still rums of which a 6YO is the oldest. And those high-funk, ester-sporting bad boys need careful handling to reach their full potential.

This is a traditional pot still rum that is distilled at Worthy Park in Jamaica and then imported to the states and partially aged in Moscatel barrels. It is aged for 6 years in Jamaica before spending some unreleased quantity of time aging in Moscatel casks, first fill, in the States.
Sweet banana, caramel, butterscotch, funky but not meaty.
Thick, rich. Sweet sugar, ripe banana and guava, rich funkiness, maple. The moscatel is doing super interesting things here.
Long, sweet and rich. Nice and funky without being overbearing.
This is really good, definitely unique. I really enjoyed it, and I plan to pick up a bottle soon.
