Easily consumable in a bind
First of all, I'll admit I hate banana. But this has an ok banana flavor to me, as I believe it tastes artificial. :-)
Tastes and smells of sweet artificial banana, which is decent. But it's just a bit weak for me at only 26.5%abv - I like rums with more strength. Plus, I'm generally not a fan of flavored rums, except for a select few.
I definitely prefer the Blue Chair Bay Coconut rum.
This rum screams "from beach to bottle". The taste actually tastes like real bananas not that artificial stuff. The rum embodies hints of toasted coconut with a smooth finish. Easily can be enjoyed on the rocks or you could add it to your favorite rum beverage to give it a unique twist. Seriously good stuff.
This, to me, needs to be drank neat. Cold, but neat. Do not mix it with citrus, or else the cream will curdle and then it's awful. Taste is fine, though. Extra fake banana flavors.
It is very smooth to drink straight or you can mix with pineapples juice or pina colada
Sugar: 93 gpl. Aside from some drink that requires banana and rum in it, there is no value in drinking this rum. It is very sweet with a strong chemical aftertaste. I know that rum goes with just about everything, but this is not really rum. I would not buy this again.
You could do worse looking for a banana flavored liqueur for mixing. It smells and tastes like artificial banana, which I suppose it what is used to flavor it. At 26% ABV it is extremely sweet and I absolutely would not under any circumstances drink it straight. Which is ok for a flavored liqueur. You could do worse; you may also be able to do better. I haven’t tried the competition but this isn’t at the quality level of naturally flavored rums like Clement Creole Shrubb.
