2006 Worthy Park 10 Year Old "Golden Devil" Single Barrel Jamaican Rum (750ml)

SKU #1282484

Worthy Park is a centuries-old Jamaican rum distillery that ceased operations in 1960 before a new generation rebuilt the facility in 2005 and resumed distillation. Almost all of the rum made at Worthy Park is sold and consumed on the island, but a small amount trickles out from independent bottlers in the UK and Europe, which is where we tracked down our 10-year-old cask. This Worthy Park 10 year old rum is a beautifully balanced, fully sippable expression of classic Jamaican rum flavor, steeped with tropical fruit and richness from the oak cask, but balanced by classic pot still flavors of over-ripe banana and wood polish. This is the most mellow of the three Golden Devil Jamaican casks we purchased, but it's still not El Dorado or Diplomatico. This is for high-end Daiquiris and Mai Tais, or whatever else your Tiki desires call for.

Worthy Park is one of the Jamaica's crown jewels, on the famous estate established in 1670. On the fertile central plains at nearly 1200 feet above sea level, thousands of acres of sugar cane grow as they have for centuries. Located in the central St Catherine's parish, the estate has cultivated cane commercially since 1720 and along side that operation a great history of rum production arose. But in the years after WW II, an over production of Jamaican Rum convinced Worthy Park to cease large scale distilling operation. It wasn't until 2004 that the Clark Family decided to give rum distillation another go. The distillery was completely rebuilt in 2005. This is some of the first distillate from the new distillery and it's as wonderful as expected. The yeast used in this high ester production is cultivated directly from the local cane leaves and only traditional pot stills are used. After 10 years in barrel, the esters have softened and developed into and incredible array of tropical fruit aromas. Lively and medium bodied, this rum is just more proof that Jamaica is producing the most complex and out standing rums on the market. The future is Jamaican rum and the future is now.

I must admit: while I'm quite an adventurous drinker, I had never before taken home a bottle of Jamaican pot stilled rum. Until now. They're funky, they're different, they're loaded with unique flavors and take some getting used to -- but they are also an absolute pleasure to drink if you delight in flavor exploration. I love spirits that demand you come back to the glass. In each nosing and every sip there is something new to behold. The 10-year-old Worthy Park offers cream soda, sarsaparilla, and crème brûlée all in one. It's loaded with herbal notes and fruit flavors; I had to take one home because the idea of mixing up a plethora of interesting and new-to-me cocktails was too enticing. If you're looking for that simple, sweet, easy rum that dominates the world of fine sugar cane spirits, this is not the bottle for you. If you want to check out something totally different that might make you a little uncomfortable at first and challenge you to think differently about your booze, don't miss this one. At 50 bucks -- the experience is worth every penny.

The Worthy Park is a very good rum for those looking for something a little off of the beaten path. It has earthy and dry aromas. In the mouth it is very complex with dry earthy flavors integrated with spice and dried fruits. There is a subtle, savory finish.

I could just nose this rum all day long and never get tired of it. The aromas are so enticing, full of flat cola, tropical fruits, vanilla bean, and pineapple. Then you get the bitter ester notes like earth, petrol, and polish on the palate, but they're balanced by just enough sweetness from the barrel. You can do so many different things with this Worthy Park: sip it on the rocks, make a cocktail, or even pour yourself a shot after a long day. It's utterly complex, intriguing, and I discover new flavors each time I taste it. That being said, if you're used to Zaya or Zacapa, this might cause your head to explode.
