Negrita ‘Old Nick’ Bardinet – 1960s
The Rum: Negrita Bardinet ‘Old Nick Rum’ 42 abv
Origin: Blended Caribian Rum
Distilled : n.i.
Bottled: ca 1965
Nose: very fresh, with lots of vanilla and some white pepper playing on the background. Reminds me a bit of Barbados rum, but with an edge. Fruity notes (red berries) and some cognac hints. After a good 15 minutes it all gest a bit more refined.
Taste: Fresh and sweet with just a ltiile bitter edge that disappears after a good 20 minutes. Fruity, sweet candy and full flavoured. The nose said ‘Barbados’, but the mouth shouts ‘Jamaica’.
Finish: Mediumlong, sweet and a bit herbal (rue). Too bad the finish doesn’t add any extra to the flavour.
Our score : ***
