Blackwell’s Tasting Notes

Posted: December 28, 2015 in Jamaica, Rum

Blackwell’s Jamaican Rum 40%

Produced for Chris Blackwell, owner of Island records by Wray & Nephew.

Tasted: Apr 2013

A dense and richly fruited nose. Very Jamaican and just like a young Appleton Estate but a shade lighter. Lightly smoked and relatively simplistic with a slightly high toned spirit note which hints at its relative youth.

The palate is soft and broad. Relatively straightforward with molasses and juicy dried fruit. Softly spiced with a pleasant depth. A little short with a lightly woody finish.
