Unfortunately negative for me. I wish we could get the rum selection that is available to Europe. So many good brands.....

Tiare,
After seeing your thread I thought I would try a sip of the Watson's Demerara Rum that I bought a few months ago but had not tried yet. I shouldn't have wasted my Sunday afternoon on this rum. Tastes thin and overpowering tastes of burnt something. Reminded me of homecooked burnt food!! It certainly was no El Dorado rum. I have a bottle of their "Trawler" rum that is a blend of Barbados and Guyana rums, that I will try next. I hope this one is better.

Have had the Four Bells 100 Proof, and along with the Wood's 100 from Wood &Co, is one of my favorite rums to enjoy. I prefer both with a bit of water and at room temperature. They have a nice bite to them, and strong fumes dance nicely around the palate. Also recommended on cold winter nights in a cup of hot chocolate.

Also tried the Four Bells 50% Extra Strength, but it does'nt have quite the same sting to it. It is however still ok to have in my Cocoa.

Default Robert Watson Demerara rum

I really loved the Watson's. I thought it was a simple, rich, peasant's rum with no pretensions, and smooth as all get out. It tickled our Club's fancy no end, largely because one of our seven founding members really is named Robert Watson. How's that for a weird coincidence?

But actually, I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the rum itself: how long it was aged, where, and where the brand originated before Ian MacLeod Distillers picked it up in 2000. Any more info out there which I could use? I'd appreciate anything more than these brief details I've managed to get.
