How does this rum taste?

Barbados gem with a twist, hints of fruit, coconut, and spice. Smells sweet, tastes of caramel and wood. Some find it more Mount Gay than Foursquare. A complex rum with a smooth, sweet finish. Pricey, but a balanced delight.

“Amazingly fruity . Coconut, orange and dried fruit... Somewhat musty woody but somehow interesting and delicious . I'm not really a big Barbados fan but it's delicious. It's also for me 100% not a Foursquare but a Mount Gay that you smell and taste immediately ... very enjoyable 😋”

“Tasted in direct comparison with the RX5519 (Mount Gay Master Blender Collection Pot Still 48%). There are already parallels, with the RX5519 having slightly more medicinal notes and the TWJ having slightly more roasted/charred notes. In the end, the TWJ came out on top for me, although neither of them really convinced me.”

“Tasted at Liquid Leuven ‘23, so my review remains rather concise. A captivating nose which opens sweet and spicy before becoming atypically medicinal. Starts with a combination of caramel-dipped coconut chunks and cask spices. Perhaps even some blueberries. Then quickly cool and musty with resin, licorice and orange gratings. After a while in the glass it evolves towards a mineral aroma of rock-sprawled river, seabreeze and… clingwrap. Incredible evolution. In the mouth clearly less oily, less medicinal, and steered back into regular MG profile. The taste is sweet and woody, with caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, and coconut husks. Hints of balsamic. Malt dominant with a tad of coffee and roasted nuts. A little bit of camphor and minerality survives onto the palate, but much less than wished for. The finish is rather short and very sweet with brown sugar. A fabulous aroma that I could smell for ages, but unfortunately did not entirely make it onto the palate.”
