Review #1561 – Dr. Bird Jamaican Rum

The Schtick: It’s been about 1,000 reviews since I’ve reviewed this OG bottling of the OG Dr. Bird rum from Two James, so I figured it was time for a revisit. Disitlled at Worthy Park and finished in Moscatel wine barrels, this moderately proofed rum is fairly available. Let’s give it another go.

Review #1561 | Rum Review #102

Distiller: Worthy Park

Bottler: Two James Spirits

Brand: Two James Spirits

Selection: N/A

ABV: 50% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Sweet butterscotch, honey, light oak and a nice funk to it. Lots of sweetness as well, the wine is clear in its influence.

Taste: Medium to thick mouth feel. Pineapple, almond, honey, papaya, some pepper. The funk is really fun and spot on for Worthy Park, but it’s integrated just right.

Finish: Long, rich and sweet. Lots of funk here but it’s not too aggressive – blends just right with toffee, brown sugar, some pineapple and honey.

Overall: Mmmm yes, that’s the stuff. Still very competent, and honestly great rum. This is a treat, made only more enjoyable by the fact its widely available and well priced. This could easily be desert island rum if the t8ke.review ship were ever to crash in the tropics.

Thanks for reading!
