Flawed with a glimmer of hope
It must be fun to buy cheap rum from other countries, mix them together like a bunch of amateurs, then slap your own label on it. Basically these guys are rum pirates. A boring product, reminds me of an aged barcardi or flor de cana. Just dull..
nose is thin and alcohol heavy, astringent.
coloration a pale gold, just weak.
flavor is average. nothing special going on whatsoever.
Rumson's Gold has a pretty nice bottle and label design. Light golden color. Wood and vanilla extract to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Extremely shallow flavor profile. Harsh and short burn at the end. Not that good even when mixed with your favorite soda.
I searched thir out after trying their Grand Reserve, Spiced Rums and Coffee Rums at a NH tasting. They had a tasting in Northern Mass so I went. My comments on the Spiced, Coffee and Grand Reserve still hold. All Amazing. The "Rumson's Rum" is very very good. Not as full bodied as the Grand Reserve but a fabulous aged rum that can be sipped or cocktailed. I found it a bit lighter and warmer then the Grand Reserve and a bit more floral. Very good. Best cocktailed, on rocks or with a splash of water. My new go to for Rum Sour.
