“A rum that seems good, especially considering its price. Fruity as can be, balanced even if it has no depth. But add a drop of water and it loses a lot of flavor. Too bad and a big kudos to the blender for making the best of what he had. Perfect ABV. Tasted again and still disappointing.”

“5 YO Worthy Park at 50% abv matured first in Jamaica for 15 to 18 mths and then in Italy in Oloroso & Pedro Ximenez casks. This one is really heavy in the taste. Nose is nice, typical funky Jamaica but the taste is more robust than the nose. Lot of funk/esters along with fruity aroma in the nose but palate gives more woody and heavy full bodied taste of Jamaican rum. Lots of wood in the aftertaste that is super long. Not sure about this piece after first 4 cl. Have to give it another go. So far I have mixed feelings as I really like the nose but taste is kind of too heavy due to its strong ,,sheriff woody,, taste. I would go with 72/100 for a start. I think we will get along just fine as soon as I will get used to that strong woody taste. Let me know what do you think. Retaste: Nice rum but very raw and rough probably due to its age. I had younger but they were not as sharp as this one, therefore I am pulling down my original rating. Retaste 30.4.2023 I have to say that Oloroso finish is giving it a rounder sweeter character. Just a side note I am tasting it after Smith&Cross which is chilly/peppery and this one is better and more complex in taste. I like the nose of S&C more though. The Oloroso gives it more chocolate and creamy feel to it. Still you can sense a hell lot of Jamaica and woody, fruity notes. Nice rum that I appreciated fully only later when I tasted more and more rums.”
