Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I wont open this Thai Rum, since i have bought it for my collection only.
Its cheap, but hard to find in my country, thats the reason for not opening.
What I have been told, should it be good with cola, so i go with that.
Saw that it was rated here, I have always thought that it was rice whisky.
There have been some bottles when at vacation in Thailand before I found SangSom which I think is slightly better.
Both works as a mixer together with coke or sprite.
A bit better in taste then the sangsom. But like I rated the sangsom it's more of an nostalgian rum for me. Drink it with pepsi in Thailand on a beach then it tastes good. Do not drink it straight, tastes like petroleum.
I enjoy this representation from Thailand! Yes, it has a very different taste than many of us are accustomed to, but that is what separates rum from one country to the next. Distilled from sugarcane and rice with herbs and spices indigenous of that region creates a nice combination of flavor albeit with a subdued 35% alcohol by volume. I have not tried Mekhong other than by itself as I feel that the distinct flavors and aroma would be sacrificed by adding soda.
Not too bad better than i thought it would be
Put it on a par with Bundabergs rums
If you expect rum, you should not buy this. Typically thai this is strongly flavoured and the taste has nothing to do with rum anymore. After tasting I understand, why Thai people call this whiskey and not rum. They add spicy herbs to create a unique flavour, but that takes much getting used to.
