“First Jamaican rum that I could taste. I find it good and very accessible considering its price. In spite of its 40%, I find the alcohol a bit too pronounced and I also regret the semi-opaque bottle. But it's a good start to discover Jamaican rums, with flavors, like coffee, chocolate, tobacco...I find the nose better than the mouth. The history of a rum is just as interesting as its aromatic palette, sometimes more. In the history of Blackwell, there is Bob Marley, James Bond, and Joy Spence the Master Blender of the Appleton Estate brand. It is interesting to note that by buying Blackwell rum a portion is donated to the Golden Eye Foundation in Oracabessa which acts in favor of the population and biodiversity of the bay. Nice anyway”
