Skipper Tasting Notes


There is a rum in the world that is shouting about itself. Skipper proudly states on every bottle, and icon in its own right as it’s the same label as when it first came out in 1930, that it is ‘The Best In This Rum World’. A bold statement perhaps, especially with many more rums coming onto the scene since Skipper’s birth in Guyana.

So what makes Skipper claim such a statement? Well it’s produced in the Diamond distillery (the home of the El Dorado range), and is created using a blend of seven Demerara rums all from Guyana that are aged for at least three years. Oddly though, I found out that it is all blended together in Holland.

Slight oddness aside, how does Skipper fare? Well below, I give to you my tasting notes –

Skipper – 40%

Lots of treacle on the nose with a slight sweetness following. Rather smooth on the palate with the treacle dominating again, although a hint of cinnamon spice comes through to linger and lengthen the finish.

Not a bad tot, and can just about rival some of the more modern brands that we have around today. Not one for cocktails maybe, but certainly with this –

Rum ‘n’ Coke

Glass –


Ingredients – 

60ml Skipper Rum
Lime Wedge

Method – 

Pour rum over ice into highball glass. Squeeze in lime wedge and add to glass. Top with cola.

Simple, and showcases one of the more original and traditional rums on the market. Check it out if you ever come across it in a bar, or indeed grab one for yourself.
