This is the spiced rum of your deepest most sincere dreams. Citrus moves to nutmeg and clove spice! Warm finish
Better than no rum, but the mix of Spices in this just don't work for me. Friends and Rum drinking family rate it, so I keep trying, but it just tastes too much of terpinols or cresols - sort of like a pine disinfectant. Apologies to the lovers 🙄
With me not being a fan of their regular Chairman's Reserve and being put off by many of these reviews, I have held off for a long time in buying a bottle of this one. However, while looking for another bottle of K&S 18, I saw this on the shelf for only $25 and said WTF and bought it.
The aroma and taste rivals my top spiced rum, which is Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced. There is nothing offensive about this rum. It is a complex mix of flavors, but I get orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, and quite a few others that I cannot identify. It is heavily sugared as evidenced by lots of legs in the snifter. I am so glad that I took a chance on this one.
At 80 proof and having 41 gpl of added sugar, this heavily spiced rum is best used to improve drinks made with the most boring of dry rums.
Update November 13, 2019: A bit of advice! If you do like I did and drink more than 8 ounces of this rum in one night, you may also lose a couple of pounds in one day. However, you will be house bound for the next day, if you get my drift.
This is truly a fine spiced rum, plenty of depth and complexity in flavour, thick and oily in the mouth, drink it straight, don't spoil it by mixing.
This is a true spiced rum. A phenomenal smooth finish with just the right mix of vanilla, spice and nutmeg. I prefer this one ice cold on the rocks. Highly recommended!
Still very enjoyable especially with a Saxbys ginger beer and a slice of lime..
Lovely copper / mahogany colour in the glass , first aroma is cloves which im not a fan of , followed by cinnamon , vanilla etc.. tastes fine sipped neat , just a bit sweet and syrupy.
Better with ice and even better as a rum & ginger..
Doesn't compete with Rumbullion , Redleg , Untold or Cargo Cult imho.. not a re-buy but I will enjoy the rest of the bottle !
Has a strong banana and vaniila taste,a sweet and soft body and something like peach at the end.Very tasteful and appropriate if you want to drink the whole bottle.
