Proof66 Notes

English Harbour rums are named for the naval port in Antigua that was home to sihps from both the English and French navies during colonial times.

English Harbour 5yr Reserve rum is made from estate produced molasses, distilled in small copper stills, and matured in smaller 220 liter barrels.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute called it "Very elegant, smooth, and delicious."

It was named one of the ten most remarkable rums in the world by Forbes in 2005. It was the youngest and least expensive to make this list. If you can find this rum, you should try it.

Has very subtle aroma, yet it is very complex which features notes of chocolate, smoke, honey and butterscotch. Tastes dry with fairly smooth finish. This kinda tastes like lighter verson of Ron Zacapa without the sweetness. If you have the chance you should definetly try this rum. P.S. bottle looks cool, fits into pirate or lost treasure theme.

Reminds me of the sea... Great nose. Slightly sweet w/ a chocolate flavor. A bit of a bite at the end.

Like a pirate's oar stroking the midnight sea en route to a rendezvous with gold. Smooth.

Merges within me like mahagony in a bookshelf. Beautiful, fully dimensional, wide as the sea, musical as the nightingale.
