Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Rum distilled in french imported alambic with cane sugar out of local thai production. The distillery is located south of Phuket Town.
Your typical white rum it is not. A unique taste, strange even...salty? Odd, but in a good way. Vegetal (agricole notes also).
Cane, perhaps little corn, not too complicated but really solid rum, very reminiscent of French agricole style, if not exactly the same in terms of production. It lacks complexity, but mixes fairly well and can actually be sipped, although I believe it won't suit many people's tastes.
This is a rather confused rum which can't decide whether it wanted to be fruity or a sipping spirit. The flavours come through as you swallow, while it remains smooth as water as you swish in your mouth. Flavours reminiscent of a mild tequila come out once they hit. Overall, a terrible sipping rum, but could be a quality mixer.
Ty hodnoceni tady me fakt mrzi. Tenhle rum mi doporucil chlapek ve warehousu a naprosta bomba - uplne neco jineho, ale uzasne na vychutnavani. Pokud jste nekdy v thajsku ochutnali cikrovou třtinu, tak tenhle rum chutna presne stejne tak syrove.
Skvělý rum! Který mi doma nesmí chybět.
Bought a bottle of Chalong Bay Thai rum while vacationing in Guadeloupe. Very nice old school bottle and label design. Super dry Rhum Agricole style flavors alongside coffee beans, cocoa, citrus and plenty of floral notes to the nose and palate. Very strong burn at the end being so dry. This is a mixer rum by all counts.
Taste better than smell. Kaffir and lime, cocoa milk inside? Rambutan...
A rum that does not say anything special to the smell. On the palate there are many different tastes like chocolate and coffe, not particolare pleasant. Not suitable for a high level tasting, good for particular cocktails
Rhum made by a couple of young French in Thailand.
Smell like rotten mangos (not necessary in a bad way).
Taste the cane, but lack of something more.
Un bon pure jus de canne qui laisse présager un avenir radieux pour le rhum Thaï.
Celui la est légèrement sucré et gras mais manque un peu de corps. Il sera bien pour des daiquiri ou des cocktails mais trop leger pour des ti-punch.
I don't know how this product made it to the market. It has an off taste which is hard to describe, somewhat sour. Reminds me of the smell from a sugar cane processing factory I visited as a kid.
