It’s possible to find the Gunpowder Proof in three different blends. The oldest one consists of rum from Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados. After that it came with a blend of Guyana and Trinidad rum. The latest one just consists of different rum from Guyana. The one I review here is the latest one. I think it’s quite complex with a good balance between sweetness and dryness.

Mon premier rhum de British Guyana est l’alcool est très présent ainsi que le café. Le bois est mal fondu. Je ne sais pas si c’est à cause du sucre mais très belle longueur en bouche.

I love Guyana rum, with its typical notes present here. The nose is lovely. Fruity and spicy. on the palate you notice that its rather young as its a little sharp indeed, but still a little woody. Finish is long with molasses forward and also chocolate

Really enjoyable and great value, though I have a slight preference for the Black Tot at this price point for a navy rum.

Bei diesem Rum muss zuerst mal das PLV erwähnt werden: für seinen Preis ist er unschlagbar und kann erstmal eigentlich nicht enttäuschen. Die Nase kommt sehr würzig, dunkel und holzig daher; zusammen mit seinem Namen fühle ich mich ein bisschen aufs Deck eines Piratenschiffes versetzt. Zusammen mit einer sehr süßen Note (Melasse?) sehr einladend, wie ich finde. Auch am Gaumen sehr würzig, allerdings auch alkoholisch und weniger komplex und einladend als die Nase. Für den Preis trotzdem top und auch für diverse Rezepte eine gute Wahl, flüssig wie fest!

On est bien dans le monde des Demerara et des Navy ! C’est gras avec des notes de cacao amer, épices et noix avec du bois brûlé. C’est bien un rhum de mélasse lourd et puissant juste au nez, le côté navy est bien marqué avec un côté solvant et métallique. Du pain d'épices adoucit et tempère le blend. Bouche : Il a du caractère avec ses 54.5% assez corsé, fort et sec. De la puissance et de la rondeur. On est bien sûr de l’amande, cacao, de la noix mais aussi du pruneau et de la banane … Le côté fruit à coque grillé est assez plaisant avec des épices gourmandes.

My go to navy proof of the demerara variety. Well integrated burnt notes, powerful flavor but never overwhelming. A controlled explosion of sorts. Needless to say an excellent choice for cocktails.

Easy on the palett, but no real depth
