Review: English Harbour 10 Year Reserve Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 23, 2018

Two weeks ago I began examining the entire family of English Harbour Rum as I published my recently revised review of the 5 Year Old Rum. This week I step up the ladder so to speak and have a look at the more prestigious  English Harbour 10 Year Old Reserve Rum (next week I go to the top of the ladder and look at the 25 Year Old).

According to the Antigua Distillery Limited website all English Harbour Rum is aged in used American bourbon barrels which are charred on the inside. Interestingly, as each barrel is filled a handful of oak chips is added to enhance the interaction of oak and rum. The English Harbour 10 Year Rum is a genuine Caribbean rum. The rum is named for the Antiguan naval port of English Harbour which was the site of naval confrontations between the English and the French who were the two major naval powers of the 18th Century.

Here is a link to my recently revised review:

Review: English Harbour 10 Year Reserve Rum

“… The rum enters the mouth with a combination of dark (almost burnt) brown sugar with oak and baking spices (vanilla and cinnamon primarily) following quickly behind. I can taste hints of coconut and a light winding of orange peel in the background. The rum is lightly creamy which helps coat the palate allowing the flavours to mingle and linger which is very pleasant …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with a nice cocktail suggestion, the Rum Old Fashioned.

Chimo!
