Flawed with a glimmer of hope
As has been mentioned before this rum has an odd smell (Not unpleasant, just unexpected - perhaps like a burnt sweet/candy or a vanilla scented candle). As a sipping rum it's very sweet with a strong taste of vanilla. Great as a mixer with cola or ginger beer. A little lime or lemon help to counter balance the sweetness. No bitterness or burning as it glides down. Currently on offer for £12 which is a fantastic bargain.
I liked the old version with white and green label when I got to taste it for the first time. Nice combination of tastes with dominance of cinnamon and not too sweet. Then i tried the new version with yellowish and red label and unfortunately it got much worse in my eyes. All i liked about this rum was gone and that disappointed me hard. Weaker sensation of cinnamon, more sugar and other tastes i can describe just as...synthetic.
Ciramon and ginger taste, burning in throat. At the same time very sweet. Vanila taste is kind of artifical. Not much to drink alone. With bottle of coke its good company. This is for "snake edition".
People have mentioned that there are different labels - this is the snake one.
I like Lambs Spiced quite a bit, probably because I really like vanilla and sugar. I imagine it’s not great if you don’t like vanilla. Also, it’s kind of that artificial vanilla flavour, but I’m not picky.
I made rum and cokes with this and it tasted like Vanilla Coke (which I also like).
