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.

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.

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...

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.

This turned out to essentially be an expensive plant pot for me. Much like the kraken, but more expensive and worse tasting, this is solely the success or marketing.
Probably one of my least favourite rums ever.

So I heard so many mixed reviews - I had to get a bottle to try. It makes an interesting Old Fashioned. I used Cardamom Bitters and Chocolate Bitters, a half oz Rock Syrup , 2 oz rum. I’m surprised how smooth it is.
