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.

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.

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.

Spicy and dry rum. Hints of cedar, vanilla and honey. The finish resembles a fresh cutted grass fand oak

It was a big disappointment for me. Don't recommend it at all. But it could be worst...

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...

I tried this because of the bottle, but discovered it was delicious

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.

Great tasting rum. I had to have it for the bottle, it tastes pretty great too.

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.
