It lives up to it's hype. It has very strong flavours to start. A mixture of of aniseed, cardimon, orange peel and a whole lot of spices. A proper "Christmas pudding" as another reviewer said. Easy sipping once it's sat on an ice cube for a minute or two.

This is not for me , far too harsh on flavours of orange and aniseed . Like a Christmas pudding I'm a glass which some people in the market will love, sadly not this pirate ...

I feel like the base here could be so much on its own. As it's presented i get a lot of orange peel and lemon lime soda. Too much anise. Generally too medicinal and yet too sweet. Just not as good as i was hoping.

edit:
had another chance to try it.

On the background, there is interesting sweet spice. Now lets go to the negatives. The base might be rum, but the spices turn it into mouth wash. Also I noticed slight beer flavor, which does not add any points either. And it needs to be diluted with a spoon of water because 46% is too much.

As said earlier, not a big fan of spiced ones, but this is OK

Cardamom, Orange Peel, Cinnamon. It was the favourite at a tasting I had with with non rum drinkers.

N- Twice as World Best Spiced Rum, so must be quite good. Appeared shy and mellow, perhaps a mistake to try this after the Navy. But still with promising curious mineral nuance with burning waxy candle, subtle and rounded spices with toasted oak. However, neither as chic as PCA nor expressive as the Navy. Stay in the middle of the lane and harmless. (18/25)

P- Medium body, wood shaving, toasted spices and toffee, a light kick up of citrus peel, but then remained muted and do not develop well if you are expecting it. Again, trying this after the far better Navy do not help. Everything seems too gentle and lack notable attribute. (18/25)

F- Short, decent texture, pleasant mouthfeel with coat of spicy toasted oak. (17/25)

Balance:- Fairy decent but lack the stamina to gives more when the expectation is high. World Best Spiced Rum, certainly I am expecting more. (17/25)

Weighted Rate:- 70pt

I was expecting just a smoother version of the original Rumbullion, but what I got was a more full bodied rummy taste, and the spices were more subtle than in the original.
Still a slow sipper, not that easy to drink when downed fast due to the huge warmth you get from it, very good though
