Cloves and more cloves is pretty much all I got from this. I really wanted to like it as it's made not far from wher ei grew up but I really couldn't get into ti, the clove was just overpowering
Not for me. Enjoy the story. Not the spiced. Woof.
What did i just taste.. Tastes like a blend of fireball and swedish punch.. I would like to say that i hate it.. But this socker grows on me.. Awesomeness in a bottle.
Crazy spicy! Nice, but maybe too spicy for its own good. Like when you get those ginger beers which have too much real ginger, and it blows your socks off. Like that, but with spicy rum. I do like my spiced rum, but this was a bit much for me. Had to pile in a few ice cubes to take the edge off, and eventually found a good drinking balance.
Had a vanilla hint, was a good rum with ginger. Not amazing but still good
A beautiful rum for sipping or more
One of my favourites so far and got a bottle at a good price and its made in Scotland what more can I say .buy it and try it
At first I wasn't too sure what to make of Dark matter. At first I felt it had too much going on but after a while I have really grown fond of it.
For something brewed in the uk where molasses does not grow this is stunning,with an aniseed effect. this is unique as most spiced rums are sweet.
I just love this rum. It has a very strong flavour base and is not for the faint hearted.
Took a while to get my hands on a bottle of Dark Matter and, unfortunately, the reward was sadly lacking. The shop told me that it was a little taste of Christmas and I understand what he means. It tastes incredibly harsh with undertones of cloves and spices. A real sipper. Maybe save for a couple of glasses at Christmas.
Strong hints of cinnamon, cloves and spices. Very reminiscent of Christmas spices and mulled wines and spirits. I bought mine with Christmas in mind. Not best on its own , but with as the basis of the cocktail "Old Fashioned" with burnt orange it is very drinkable and more-ish, but not the next day!
A very unique tasting rum. First you get a strong cloves smell/taste, but then when you swallow you get a big after taste of spicy pepper, there is no alcohol burn but you do get a warm tingle on the tongue from the spices afterwards.
