Easily consumable in a bind
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.
Okay, it has a creepiness factor of 10 which makes it stand out from all other rums out there in regards to containers. However can it stand apart from other rums in regards to flavor?
First off the color is a light amber...closer to a yellow color in some apple juices. It has a slight sugar cane aroma with fair amount of astringency reminding me of ethanol. The flavor isn't too bad. Not great but it hits you with some sweetness and vanilla/toffee tones which then fades into a rather decent burn. Being that it's a blend of sugar cane juice and molasses it does have a bit of an agricole edge to it. The aging gives it a bit of oak bitterness bordering on objectionable but not quite. It ALMOST is a sipping rum but misses just by a tad. However it does very well as a mixer.
I recommend buying one bottle at least for the appearance and if you like it, buy another and tell your guests they were traveling salesmen....WERE....
Okay...feeble attempt at humor.
Not a bad rum. However it really doesn't stand out from other similarly aged rums. Therefore I can't go higher than a 7 here.
At bought this one as a present for my friend and just took one for my collection. After tasting it I really felt sorry for giving it away as a present, it really tastes like coming out of a fuel tank. It stays because of the great looking bottle, but it will never get empty...
Forget the bottle. This is a fine rum. Aromatic. Complex. Singular. Notes of spice, grass, and funk. Makes a mighty fine cocktail, probably is amazing with cola, and is a unique sipper. A little pricey, but try it if you get a chance.
This seems more like a souvanere product, than a serious rum. I find the taste leaning towards tequila rather then good rum. Not for me.
Wasn't expecting much of this rum, the bottle is really nice.
Nose: very interesting actually, feels like a rhum agricole or leaning that way, very floral and herbal.
Taste: a bit disappointing on the taste, was expecting more herbal flavor after the nose.
Finish: the aftertaste is better, definitely feels a bit like a rhum agricole.
Overall good price for a nice looking and sturdy bottle. The rum is not the best but can go well with some cocktail.
I love the bottle this rum comes in, but inside the contents were lacking. I ended up using it as a mixer for a generic rum to go through it.
