Review #1695 | Rum Review #107

Distiller: Worthy Park

Bottler: Five & 20 Spirits

Brand: Hamilton


ABV: 46.5% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Yep, thats the stuff. Rich honey, banana, mango, papaya. Rich funk, unmistakeable Jamaican character, in the best way. Faint oak, caramel, reeses candies.

Taste: Thin on the palate, with no heat. Sweet toffee, coffee, mango and funk. Bitterness is there, almost like rhubarb/celery in a vegetal way. Palate sort of falls flat compares to the vibrancy of the nose.

Finish: Short finish. Harsh, peppery, bitter and faintly chemical/plastic forward.

Overall: The nose on this is vibrant, effervescent and promising. The palate and finish are a let down in comparison, failing to deliver the grandeur of the nose.

Thanks for reading!
