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.
As with all rums that come in novelty bottles, I wasn't expecting much (especially after being burned by the $45 usd Pumpkin Face "Premium" white rum...).
I expected to have a few sips with some rum imbiber friends, have a few laughs at those few sips, then dump the rest of the bottle in a summertime Punch/Sangria at the next family BBQ and then just keeps the bottle as a display piece for the next TIKI night.
What I found was a NICE lightly spiced rum that is easy to drink.
Okay, that being said, I know it won't replace the Appleton Estate Exclusive or the Dos Maderas Luxus as my top 2 sipping rums, but I won't be hiding it from my guests that know I'm a serious rum amateur either.
I has a well marked pepperiness that will make (daytime) cocktails linger in your mouth without overpowering all the other ingredients; it's slightly sweet but not syrupy ; it was a hint of sugar cane but reminds me more of Cachaça than something made with molasses.
All in all, not a bad rum ...and it even comes in a pretty remarkable container.
I tried this at a notorious low lit bar in Long Beach. It's all about the bottle, the rum inside isn't all that bad though thin. Unremarkable and definitely nothing to write home about. It's a down the middle rum, not sweet nor dry and grassy cane notes were what I took away from the pour.
Notes of coffee, chocolate and cinnamon and a finish of cloves, anise and caramel.
Hübsche Flasche, Geruch erinnert stark an Tequila und Pflaume. Geschmacklich ist er ok, wenn der Merketinggag des Schrumpfkopfs nicht wäre würde ich ihn mir nicht kaufen.
Frankly! That's the reason I bought it anyway. No better than a big plastic bottle of the cheap rum on the bottom shelf.
Sehr coole Flasche macht was her. Geruch und erster Geschmack ist Traube.
I HAVE A FEW BOTTLES OF THIS IN MY OWN TIKI BAR. IT IS SMOOTH AND MIXES WELL.
I had to try this when I saw the bottle and ,although I don't have a lot of experience, from what I've tried, its the best so far.
Altså, har set denne flotte flaske på billeder og tænkte, sikke en lækker flot flaske i keramik! - Skuffelsen var stor da jeg så endelig fik den købt (330 kr hos Otto-Duborg i Tyskland) og opdagede at den er i plastik!
Nå, ind på hylden med den og den skal nok få en bedre beskrivelse ang. smag osv når jeg har fået taget hul på den.
It is not that smooth but still has plenty of characteristics to explore. Definitely worth tasting. And the bottle is really something original and unique.
This is an interesting rum. The bottle is pretty cool, and the flavor is unique. Smells of earthy cacao, allspice, caramel, and butterscotch with lots of anise showing up in the taste. It's quite tasty for the price.
Good rum . This is a great bottle had to have the bottle
You see this bottle, its a must buy for some. But the actual product inside isn't that bad. Thus far I've only had the pleasure on the rocks and it has a pleasing taste, smooth enough, with no lingering burn or harshness.
Deadhead rum, is een glorieuze riet rum uitgerust met waarschijnlijk de meest opvallende fles sinds de uitvinding van de verpakking.
In tegenstelling tot zijn nogal macabere fles, is de rum is een echte schoonheid. Deadhead rum is ideaal voor nippen na het eten, het is assertief en briljante smaken maken het een geweldige keuze voor gebruik in een classic drankje.
Het heeft een rijke amber tint, een onmogelijk lichte body en verzadigd met aroma´s van koffie, chocolade, piment, kaneel en nootmuskaat, samen met de toegevoegde aroma van kruidnagel, anijs en karamel .
This is a great rum for drinks, I was very surprised how good this is.
