A distillery name I had not heard of but one all rum drinkers have encountered. Located on the Monymusk estate, Clarendon Distillery is one of the newest distilleries in Jamaica. Creating three styles of rum, some for a famous Captain’s spiced rum and other being high ester filled rums that will always call me back.

Tasting note

The rich nose on this rum is honeyed, smoky and with hints of diesel, banana and vanilla. As rich as you would expect from a Jamaican rum, this oozes class. This is largely due to the restraining fruits controlling the stronger elements and it being drawn from the cask in its prime. On the palate, it takes a while for the alcohols to dissipate but the balance of flavours integrate to give a lasting, rich and memorable taste. The finish lingers with the prevalent diesel and banana notes still bound in honey. The final impression leaves me with memories of sandy beaches in the sunshine. This is a very pleasing rum.

About this SPIRIT

Own Range Rum

Own Range Rum

Our collection of rum represents a range of countries around the world, from Jamaica and Barbados to Mauritius and Fiji.

These different rums can vary greatly in style and taste: spicy or fruity, white or dark, smoky or bright. Broadly speaking, there are three distinctive styles of rum, which have been shaped by historical colonial forces: British, French and Spanish.

Rums made in English-speaking regions, such as Barbados and Belize, tend to be heavier and richer in style. Those made in French-speaking areas, such as Haiti, are likely to be leafy and smoky; while Spanish-speaking countries, such as Nicaragua and Guatemala, are likely to produce a lighter, brighter style of rum. You’ll also find an ever-expanding collection of rums from other territories and continents, from Mauritius to England.
