Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
As per the label the only rum fermented and distilled in England Cambridgeshire. Black strap molasses is used and distilled three times in small batches of 200L copper pot stills. Three years matured in English Oak.
Presented in a tall slender 50cl bottle with a synthetic cork that's been sealed with a red wax. I like the presentation but as it's taller than the usual bottle it doesn't fit on my drinks shelf.
As soon as you open the bottle the aroma hits you. Very pungent resembling Jamaican rum style (i’m thinking Smith & Cross) aroma of raisins & high esters. The taste surprised me. I was expecting a harshness but got a smooth taste, mouth coating with dark fruits, some spice with al little bitterness but overall a high estery experience. The finish is long, some sweetness and mouth drying towards the end from the oak.
If you like sweet rums this is a definite no no. However if you like the Smith & Cross kind of rum than give this a try.
This is easy the worst rum i have tasted. It stinks like an old sock and the taste is simular. If you aren¨t a fakir don¨t buy.
Jeg ved ikke hvad den person der har været blender på denne "rom" har tænkt på.
Den er direkte udrikkelig og kan absolut ikke anbefales, der er smags noter af vandresokker der er skyllet i lunkent vand efter en hel dag i bjergene, tror jeg, sådan kan jeg forestille mig at det ville smage, hvis man skyllede ens sokker op efter en hel dag og så tilsæt lidt røg og tjære så er den der.
