View Full Version : Old Grog?

Has anyone else tried this rum? If so, impressions?
I've heard of other Clarkes related rums but not much really regarding the Old Grog. I believe my bottle says Very Old or Extra Old but based on taste and appearance, I'd have to guess the rum in the bottle is no more than 5 or 6 years old, if that.

Old Grog (http://ministryofrum.com/rumdetails.php?r=62) is the oldest rum blended at Clarke's Court in Grenada. The flavor is quite complex with a lot of sweet tropical fruit in the body and a light smoky oak flavor in the finish. This rum is hard to find, only a few cases were imported to the US a few years ago and most of it has been consumed.
I'm told the oldest rum in the blend is 10 years old, but there are also younger rums in the blend.

I haven't actually seen this on a local store shelf, but there was a distributor who had it a couple of years back and I was lucky enough to grab some at that time. There is however a CA merchant I see that apparently stocks it for under $20. I wonder if this was the lone source the CA distributor was supplying.

I understand they are repackaging to support their new UK distributor with a launch to coincide with the WIRSPA ad launch in ........Feb....March....whenever it happens

So then what the CA merchant currently has is actually or likely from the same lot that my acquisitions came from? Or has this been been produced / distributed more recently???
BTW I agree with the tasting notes Ed offered especially I found:"a light smoky oak flavor in the finish".
