Tasty, but not quite great
I was apprehensive going into this one at Rumfest London 2016, but found the 'rum' to be surprisingly nice, with an interesting spice with a grenade type cherry taste. Actually OK straight, little sour and seriously sweet finish, made to be a mixer and I'm assuming it makes for a nice cocktail.
This is pretty sweet but I like that. It's easy enough to swig down and even better in a coke. (EVEN better if you put in cherry Pepsi max!!) This is better better koppabergs attempt but don't go in expecting a depth of flavour. Mediocre rum and artificial flavour. But it'll do the job!
It’s really nice if you like a sweet rum. Perfect for a special occasion. All the old J rums have a really nice blend of spiced in which I appreciate. The old J cherry is no exception
This is a rum with a strong hit of vanilla with an added twist of cherry oil. It smells like candy floss, and is awesome mixed with cream soda, and makes plain cola taste like cherry cola. However, its quite sickly and if you aren't one for sugar loaded rum, then give this a miss. A sexy novelty I wouldn't turn down as I love its flavour profile, but if I was in a serious mood for rum, this would just piss me off and make me feel sick. I would like to experiment more with the fun flavours in this with cocktails, but its sweetness makes it difficult to recommend as a go-to. I would however say that this is a great introduction to rum drink for those that are still stuck on morgans spiced, red leg, and other easy to drink spiced rums.
"Huge amounts of sugar, artificial vanilla and toffee wrestle with the cherry flavouring. This tastes like a multi coloured ice lolly."
