Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
DeadHead Aged Rum is produced in Veracruze, Mexico from molasses and then double-distilled in a Pot Still. The rum is then charcoal filtered and lastly aged for six years in Sherry casks.
for this price, we expected much more. Too young and not smooth. only one person in a round of ten said acceptable.
Normally I stay away from rums like this. Usually they are 80% brand 20% product. In this particular case it's more like 60-40% with a decent product. It's nose is a bit disappointing but when you sip you get the mild aroma of a decent rum. With notes of spices an vanilla.
Sorry, nice gimmick. That is all.
Maybe a good choice for a Gift, but nothing who is liking a good Rum
Katastrofalná fľaša, ostrá nepríjemná chuť v ktorej sa nedá nájsť žiaden pozitívny tón. Je to podľa môjho názoru nepodarok a navyše za vysokú cenu.
...kenne wenige Rums, welche mit ihrer Verpackung derart polarisieren. Die Einen regen sich darüber bereits so auf, dass sie nicht mehr die Möglichkeit haben unbefangen den Inhalt zu degustieren. Die Anderen sehen durch die "coole" Flasche bereits einen fantastischen Rum auf ihre Zunge gelangen. Ich persönlich finde den Rum gar nicht so schlecht, doch auch ich muss gestehen zur ersten genannten Gruppe zu gehören.
I expected worse with this gimmick cheesy bottle.
However it's not that bad.
I'm not tasting much artificial flavorings like sugar/vanilla/ caramel
Den här är lagom söt. Lite kick mot slutet. En god rom i övre skicktet.
My first mexican rum. Didn't have high expectations on this one. But it was ok. Nose: alcohol and vanilla. Palate: not to sweet with flavours of exotic fruits and rasins.

vůně lehce alkoholová se sušeným ovocem
Chuť - alkoholová s pálením

Deadhead is completly missing any flavour, leaving you with taste and smell of ordinary alcohol. Good thing is, that it is still surprisingly drinkable, but there is no joy in it.Unique bottle could be saviour, but it looks better on picture. Cheap plastic material is yet another reason to be dissapointed.
Duft af fad og lidt chokolade? Ikke sprittet, og lidt slag af karamel. Altså det man kan nå at smage inden alt forsvinder igen. Sidder tilbage med en lidt flad fornemmelse. Den smager ikke grimt. Den er bare intetsigende.
Didn't really get me excited - harsh, probably good as a mixer. I must admit it was probably the packaging that caught my eye!
Nice marketing with the bottle but the rum it self is quite hot. Not a rum I would recommend except for the souvenir bottle. The bottle would make a nice candle stick holder.
Don't recommend it at all. It's a strange combination of aromas.
I still managed to drink it somehow :-)
nimic intersant, destul de fin dar fără pretenții..
The bottle is the obvious selling point; unfortunately, one cannot eat or drink the plastic.
The rum itself is of darker mahogany brown color, a standard hue conjured by a liberal dose of caramel.
The nose is weak, with hints of caramel, and cocoa.
The taste begins with a weak sweet note (maybe some added sugar, but definitely not much), and develops into cocoa, dark chocolate, tobacco, the mouth-feel is slightly oily with a spicy, salty tones evoking aged salami, and perhaps soap. The finish is short to non-existent, bitter tannin with more cocoa.
Overall, a very thin and muted rum.
Showfles, nuff' said. Scherpe alcoholreuk, en gepeperde alcoholdronk met weinig lange smaak. Je betaalt de fles
I really thought the best thing about this rum would be the bottle...but it is really a good rum...you can even si it although a mixer is its true place for me.
Worst rum I have ever had the misfortune to try. No depth, no character, no noticeable flavours and no redeeming features. Tastes artificial, more like a failed chemical experiment than a rum.
Mexican folks can make some amazing tequila's, but I haven't been able to find even one decent dark rum. Deadhead 6 year old rum has very nice deep dark rum color, smell is pure wood and the taste test is cellar dampness weird sherry cask infusion. Hardly any burn on the only positive side.
Theres not much happening.... I could only smell and taste added caramel. I mean it tastes ok and makes a decent mixer but take the bottle away and your left with a very average rum. Once finished wont be repeated im afraid.
This is one of the very very few rums you only buy for the bottle. Looks neat on the bar, but that's about it. It's not the worst rum out there by any means, but it's harsh, and oddly salty. Not my favorite, but I'm sure someone out there will appreciate its odd palette
nothing over the top but still tasty. bottle speaks for itself
