Negrita ‘Old Nick’ Bardinet – 1960s

old stcroix

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 : ***
