Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Another flavored rum just like cruzan. Too sweet for me. If you like chocolate, good news. The chocolate comes through more than the coconut.
In the interest of full disclosure I only bought this bottle because my wife likes chocolate, likes coconut, and the store that sold it had it on clearance at $5 a bottle.
The aroma both in the bottle and in a snifter is very plastic. I was expecting some chocolate, coconut, or both but got plastic. Not a good start. Sipping some reveal no immediate flavor but given a little time I started detecting what I assume the manufacturers think is chocolate. Only problem is that it tastes more like the crappy imitation chocolate I remember in Canfield's Chocolate Fudge Diet Soda (which is a horrible soda). If there was a coconut aspect to it, I didn't get it. At only 21% ABV (42 proof) it has little warmth. It tastes very syrupy...as if it were to be used in a soda dispenser that carbonates concentrated syrups supplied by soft drink companies. This might be useful in some mixed drink but honestly I can't think of a single one this would work well in. I barely gave it a 2. I was expecting German Chocolate Cake and instead I got garbage. I'll save it for my wife but if she doesn't like it I'm pouring it down the drain and putting the bottle in the recycle bin.
