Ben, perhaps introduce it as spiced rum since it is not straight rum like Paul says. Thats what I would do atleast.

I had a quick taste of this rum at IPB last year and I liked it, at the moment I didn't notice any obvious flavourings, though admittedly I had been sampling a lot (A LOT!!!) of rum after I tried this rum.

Either way based on that sampling I would be interested to try it again, perhaps a bit less rummed up .

CBBG Dark colour, but not as dark as anticipated.
Aroma is pretty good, heavy rum with lots of burnt sugar/caramel, smelt more when sniffing from the bottle.
Initial taste was pretty good then it just changed completly and seemed to fade and change to a different lighter rum. I think I was quoted in Miami as saying "If it's from Jamaica it should be good" (about Jack Tar rum from Jamaica and bottled in S.Africa)
This rum is made by JW&N who won't put their name on anything bad and after a couple of sips it does grow on you. You can taste it's Ja. heritage, heavy, dark and sweet. I think it is a reasonable rum that has had caramel in large ammounts added to it (as the owner admits to) so would be good as a floater or in a cocktail that requires a strong rum flavour, ideal with a coconut rum and comes in a nice package. Thanks again to my sister-in-law for picking this up and especially for spending $100 on an Edwin Charley Foundation for me, way beyond the normal calls of duty!!
Rumelier, thanks for reminding me, I need to get those Edwin Charley bottles for my collection .
