Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum actually has a nice taste to it. Cinnamon, very sweet vanilla, and lots of creaminess. Color is white. I would probably like this a lot more if it had more alcohol; sadly it's only 13.75%abv. It just doesn't feel like a rum at that low an alcohol level. Definitely OK, but not great.
I use a bottle of this to keep the wife out of my rum collection. It works.
I am giving this a very high rating in relation to other cream liqueurs, such as Bailey's, compared to which I find it much more distinctive and interesting.
I have wanted to try this for a while. I got it for Christmas and I have to say it’s one of my top favorites! Rum has long been a favorite for me. This was fabulous! Great in hot chocolate or by its self! 👍 up!
Ok...it has a bit decent alcohol in it, BUT it is sooo delicious...even minutes after taking a sip you lick your lips and enjoy the aftertaste.
It smells so good after cinnamon and vanilla...and tastes exactly like it smells ***lips licking***
Standard bottle from now on in my collection...by the way my woman loves it too :)
It's good for what it is. I use Rumchata and blue chair bay cream and all irish creams for one thing ,that is for Hot Chocolate!!!
It has the word "rum" in it, but it's mostly cream, chemicals and a TON of sugar with a splash of bulk rum. The alcohol content is low and the flavor is really bad, like my shampoo. Only sweetened. Gak.
RumChata is a unique entry of cream rums. Its good but with all these special types of rums its hard to rate them because this is a one of a kind type of thing. From the bottle it smells like cinnamon and nothing else pouring it into a glass comes out like eggnog so its on the thicker side. Drinking the shot by itself is strange, it is a very nice amount of cinnamon, cream base and sugar and that's really about it. It's thick but nothing offensive. I wouldn't drink this straight, it is just way too much sugar to take in at once. I mixed it with diet coke and it tastes exactly like an apple fritter desert. It's good but not a rum.
I will drink it over ice if I am in the mood after dinner, but I really like it best in hot chocolate.
I love horchata, so I thought having it with rum would be awesome. Great idea, poor execution. I couldn't detect much cinnamon or other spices. Come on, that's what makes horchata taste so great! It was mostly a plastic-y cream flavor. This stuff tastes really weird and unpleasant. Not recommended unless you enjoy nausea.
I was pretty excited to try this one based on how good the El Dorado cream was. I was a little surprised that it was less of a rum taste and more of an roasted almond / cinnamon taste. It reminds me more of the rum flavour from rum raisin ice cream or Ritter Sport chocolate then a regular rum. Quite sweet and delicious, much like drinking a Cinnabon.
Lovely cinnamon notes to this creamy rum liquiere. Worth buying for a gentle sipping experience. Tasty.
A tasty rum cream but not really rum, per se. Great for sipping on the rocks or in various drink recipes. I still prefer the various Bailey's versions after dinner, but this can be a nice change of pace.
Whether straight or mixed, this is always a holiday favorite. Smooth, with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg. You can't go wrong with this.
I tried my first bottle of this stuff a few months before submitting my first review here. I have been debating on whether or not to even submit it because it is really tough calling it rum.
Mexican horchata is made from milled rice, vanilla, cinnamon, and a few other ingredients such as things called "tiger nuts". And yes, that is what Rumchata tastes like, heavily sweetened horchata with some cheap rum added to it. The initial taste is quite appealing and fits the ingredients to a T. It is way too sweet at 95 gpl of added sugar. And wouldn't you know that Rice Dreams Horchata has 100 gpl of added sugar, so adding a little bit of dry rum brings down the added sugar content while adding alcohol. The after taste is what ruined it for me because it is like it is also loaded with tannins that leave a very dry taste in the mouth. I tried to get over this horrible aftertaste, but could not and swore to never buy another bottle. One would be better off buying a quart of Rice Dreams Horchata for less than $5 US and then adding their own preference of dry rum to suit their own ABV percentage. I ranked Rumchata near Captain Morgan Original Spiced and Kraken Black Spiced to arrive at my rating of 4. I have had worse.
However, as a few others have said, this could keep the wife or the girlfriend away from your really good rums, so you may need to keep it on hand. Supposedly, it does not need refrigeration.
Smelt of sour cream with a chemical tinge to it , sipped pretty much the same experience. Very creamy but not in a good way.. sweet enough to give anyone diabetes ! I think the only way this could be improved would be to add a good dose of an unsweetened rum , like Mt. Gay eclipse or similar.
Despite being rum basted, I taste very little rum in this despite the slight burn. Very good in creamy cocktails though. I dont suspect many people purchasing this thinking its a sipping rum. Vague cookie taste.
Ok its a liqueur not a sipping rum. So in that vein its fine
Was new to me, id never heard of it and was intrigued by a rum based cream liquour,
I got told to mix this with fire eater (cinnamon liquour) and it will taste like alcoholic cinnamon buns,
On view it’s very white, wasn’t expecting that as the cream liquors I’d had before were more yellow/brown in colour
Agree with a lot of comments regarding alcohol level, bit low but overal enjoyed it,
Taste like cinnamon toast crunch not a big fan of that cereal
if you havent tried this mixed with Fire Ball whiskey you are missing out on life period. RumBall.. absolutaly delicious.... by itself i dont know so much, this is more a mixing rum to make delicious cocktails!
This is French Toast in a bottle. Great with shooters. Great in coffee or drink it straight up. I drink this if I want to change it up a bit. Better than Bailey's but sweet.
If you like Baileys and you are a rum drinker, RumChata will surprise you in the flavor profile.
I bought this on sale just to try it, and it had a recipe for a root beer float on the bottle. I tried it and the mix with root beer over ice was a delicious treat! Three parts root beer over ice, pour in one part of the cream liqueur and voila. I let my pregnant wife try a sip, and she likes it, so another plus is it'll keep her out of my good stuff when she's able to drink again.
