nice on ice on a patio, in the canary islands where it comes from (or anywhere else). very good for what it is.
very sweet and honey tasting, as per its name.
Not a real rum. More a kind of liquor.
Very sweet taste, good as a digestif/dessert.
I prefer drinking it at a very low temperature or on the rocks.
OK... this is NOT Rum, but that's alright. It's a sweet, tasty rum liqueur. Translated as honey rum, Santa Cruz Ron Miel is bottled at 20%ABV, and carries its own GI, or "Denominación Geográfica," recognized by the EU. By law Ron Miel must be bottled between 20-30% and contain at least 2% natural bee honey. Visitors to Tenerife might know it as a sweet chilled drink that might come to your table with the bill, though I'm told it was originally more of a cold remedy.
The Santa Cruz Ronmiel rating suffers from the category more than anything. As a sweet digestif it's very pleasant, and gets a bonus for the rum base. The six bottle rating I'm giving it would be a one if judging it as a rum, but for what it is, it's pretty good. A little spicy, very sweet with a definite nose and taste of honey. Its' worth having in the collection as long as you realize what you're buying.
