Tasty, but not quite great
What a surprise this one was! Found it in B&M for £17.99 so couldn’t refuse. Very Kraken-esque and at half the price. Lovely stuff!
Honestly I’d have to do a side by side to taste the difference, but this is essentially Kraken. A supposed black strap molasses rum, that is sweet, smooth and syrupy. However the artificial flavors of vanilla, and the obvious Carmel coloring and strong post-distillation sugar make me wonder how much of this magic is meant to cover up a mediocre rum at best. I’d assume that hangovers are in store for repeat offenders of this dark rum. I’ve definitely had worse but that’s not in any way a recommendation. Unless you’re looking for a sugar coma steer clear.
I will admit that I am not a spiced rum drinker. I pick a bottle up in FLA. First impressions were that it was VERY sweet. I kind of abandoned the bottle. A few years later, I decided to try again. Not bad, but still too sweet for me. Vanilla is overwhelming as well. I think I will save this for some house party...somewhere.
Neat with no ice.
Not a bad rum. Doesn't have the aroma of a rum to drink neat but tastewise it isn't too bad. Strong maple syrup/brown sugar aromas. Getting a nice cherry flavour from it and some pepper kicks around the mouth, but overall very smooth drinking.
This is an incredibly easy to drink beverage.
Delicious flavour with quite a creamy experience. I oft compare it to a chocolatey liqueur. So if you know someone who like chocolate then they will be sure to enjoy this.
This will definitely be one I pick up again in the future.
"Packed with sweet flavours. It also has a very healthy base of sugar clearly added to it. Which is smoothing out the flavour of this rum."
