CoR Jamaica 2008 14yr 58,9%

RX17339 Good Under 250€

The "Jamaica" rum by The Colours of Rum, distilled from molasses in 2008 and aged for 14 years with an ABV of 58.9%, impresses with its distinctive Jamaican character. On the nose, it offers a delightful bouquet of tropical and dried fruits, varnish, crisp notes, and marmalade, evoking visions of a tropical paradise. The palate is rich with tropical fruit flavors, esters, vanilla, sweetness, and a nuanced barrel influence, reminiscent of quality rums from distilleries like Monymusk, Long Pond, and Worthy Park. Many users noted its pleasing profile and satisfying sipping experience, although there were comments on it not fully justifying its premium price. Perfect for those who appreciate complex Jamaican rums with a characteristic ester profile and vibrant tropical notes.

“The bottled vintages and distilleries raised some expectations. I have to say, I really like the bottling. It's impossible to say exactly what's in it, but it tastes absolutely like Jamaica DNA and everything it needs.”

“Tried at Whisky Live Paris and at Milano Whisky Festival, this is a 4 distilleries blend where I clearly recognise almost all the contributions (monymusk, long pond and worthy park) excepti new Yarmouth. Nose is glue and varnish driven with a sweet side that we find much more drinking, and it's clearly from worthy park. A nice sipping rum very satisfying to drink, just unfortunately not worth the price tag.”
