Merser & Co Double Barrel Bottling Note

Rum blending house Charles Merser & Co. hails from the Hayman family (yes, the same folks behind Hayman's Gin), and is London's first rum blending house in over a century! The rum itself is distilled in the Caribbean, but is blended in London. In keeping with the traditions set by London's merchant blending houses of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, there's no sugar or colouring to be seen here, just good old fashioned rum rested in oak.

The bottle represents more than meets the eye too, with the dimpled bottle representing the River Thames on which rum was transported, while the hound and post logo is a little nod to the days when most Londoners couldn't read, and would follow symbols to find their way to merchant houses. On that note, Merser literally means 'merchant' in Old English.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: You can’t mistake that high ester Jamaican component, pineapples just jump out of the glass, followed by grassy vegetal flavours, orange peel and dark chocolate.

Palate: Creamy and elegant, with stone fruit to the fore and the Jamaican funk present but very much in the background.

Finish: Vanilla, coconut and chocolate.

Overall: Elegant, harmonious and distinctive.

Merser & Co. Double Barrel Rum Reviews

Ok

Got this rum as a gift, the bottle is eye catching & the price states class. But I’m disappointed to say it does not live up to its description & heritage. I have been & branknin the Bahamas & John Waitlings Amber Rum Outweighs this.
It is on par with Havana.. which can be more on the harsh side than smooth if on the rocks. I’m my personal opinion, a smooth good quality rum which does not disappoint on the high street is - diplomatico or don papa! Or if you have experience, pay that little bit more for zaccapa or Pampero ! These are not an Amber rum but are of good aged quality

Smooth and easy to drink

I have been a drinker of dark rum for the past 3 decades and have recently had the pleasure of consuming a bottle of Mercers rum. It is a smooth drink and is as good neat as it is.with a small mixer. It's up there as one of my favourites, so much so, I've recently replenished with a new bottle.

Might be the best golden rum for the price

I’m not generally a fan of golden rums but this is something special. On ice, this is buttery, creamy and extremely smooth. Tasting notes are spot on. Light, sophisticated and well worth a try.

Pretty good

Got a bottle after seeing it on a 'catch up' Saturday Kitchen. Had a couple neat and wasnt that impressed, resided the bottle to be used in cocktails.... thats where it comes alive. Even with a cola the flavours really comes to the front. However, eveyone who has tasted it seems to say more about the bottle design than the rum!

One of the best

I say one of the best as I have only tried a handful of different rums but this one is by far the best of all the ones I've had.

Not very good , nice bottle though

Its all form over content. Great bottle , great design , good back story. Unfortunately an insipid taste , vauge sherry overtones but a poor choice by me , followed the tasting notes but I must be on another planet or lost my sense of taste.
