Tasty, but not quite great
I stumbled across this - literally; the case was in the middle of a dark aisle floor - and decided to try it. I’m not usually a fan of spiced rums, but this one has a very interesting flavor and a clean finish. Afterwards, I kept thinking about it and could still taste a honey - vanillla. Still thinking about it. Perhaps that’s the magic.
This was so bad, I could clean the inside of a gun barrel with it. I could sprinkle it out on the lawn and it would kill snails. Before I bought I went on Google and looked for ratings and reviews. This bottle of death somehow got 4 out of 5 stars on most sites. These reviewers either had to be employees of the company that makes this, friends and family of the guy who makes this or people so angry with their lives they think drinking formaldehyde mixed with antiseptic mixed with battery acid will get them out of their misery and to the next life quickly since they are prohibited from buying guns and are on the fence about a gallon of Clorox doing the job.
As I mentioned in my earlier posts, most people don't get Black Spiced Rum ("BSR") It is a mixer, not to be partaken of neat. And it must be chilled, served in a chilled glass. I've read from people who drink it warm, or pull straight from the bottle. Read the above about people who hate their lives and are angry, empty and burned to a cinder inside. You can drink it neat, you just shouldn't. It is meant to enjoy, not to entice one to consider committing felonies. Especially not against small furry animals.
If you drank this and thought your world had changed for the better. Learn to love yourself. Grab a bottle of Jonahs Curse or Doubloons. Chill it, mix it/cut it, serve it in a chilled glass and sit back and treat yourself to a fine reward. Enjoy with a cigar (May I recommend Nat Sherman Metropolitan Bankers, Gordo size), cig (I smoke Chief Stix CBD or Camel Platinum) and perhaps a really nice steak. Or really good Szechwan. Live a little. Enjoy life. Reward yourself.
Don't punish yourself by picking up a bottle of this. Bad. Just plain bad. It deserves the lowest award. Here we go: Crap-crap-crappy-crap. Bullshit-bullshit-bullshit.
Smooth and good with a mixer, particularly if you have a sweet tooth.
I enjoyed this rum, as described in a previous review, similar to kraken but smoother and preferential.
Stumbled upon this dark spiced rum and thought I’d give it a go based on the amazon reviews. Lovely stuff, easy to drink. Well balanced flavour. Great value for money
Nose has many different spice with just a hint of the alcohol. One of the few spiced rums that I have sipped that can be a sipper, full body with a touch of burn, very nice, I loved it mixed with cola and citrus but very special in ginger ale, I look forward to blending it in some other drinks in place of traditional rums.
Read some of the complaints about Black Magic but I personally like it and will keep it i my bar as a solid spiced rum and a great value.
