Tasty, but not quite great
Liked the novelty bottle and got a novelty rum. Certainly not bad...far from it but it was like eating too much fruit cake at a party. I wouldn't buy another bottle but would drink it if offered. Not for me but could suit many others
Great mix of flavours, nothing is overpowering or sickly despite this being quite sweet. Strong flavours of vanilla/ice cream and caramel. I've been recommended Kraken but that is far too sweet and artificial tasting, this hits that same sweet spot (no pun intended), but much more tastefully.
Works great as a mixer in almost anything, especially coke even to the point where I feel coke doesn't taste right without a little DMF in it.
I would say it's an ok sipping rum because I like it occasionally on its own over ice, but DMF was my first dabble in the rum world and I have only really tried mixer quality rums since (Bayou, Duppy Share etc).
Enjoyed 2 glasses of Dead Man's Fingers while in London. Unique bottle and label design. Nothing but vanilla to your nose and palate to make you nauseous. Hardly any burn, and more vanilla at the end.
Middle if the road spiced rum, vanilla hits you hard. Ice cream meets cream soda, good flavour, just a little sweet for my taste, just opened the bottle so may revisit this again my tasting was mixed with pepsi max.
Whilst this isn't as good as Rebellion, Elements 8 or Rumbullion, it is still pretty good. I'd rather drink it than most of the other spiced rums on the market. Taste is mainly clove, apple, fruit, spice, cinammon, vanilla. Pretty sweet - but not as sweet as Rebellion, which I prefer, not for it's extra sweetness, but for it's greater kaleidoscope of flavours. It's a tad expensive for £24 or there abouts, but I think it's made by a small concern so there aren't many economies of scale.
If you like sweetish, fruity spiced rums, you will certainly like this. If you don't like spiced rum, why do you want to read this anyway?
My current favourite and the one that got me back into rum. Very smooth, with a vanilla/caramel taste. I used to love Captain Morgan's Spiced, but this knocked it off my top spot. Shop around online as prices vary greatly, but worth every penny in my humble opinion.
It’s not all vanilla but the other notes are equally safe and equally popular. Cinnamon, citrus peel and some very sweet caramel.
"In actual fact the orange peel/marmalade notes really shine through. It’s reasonably complex – some nice more natural tasting notes of cinnamon, brown sugar and a little saffron spice."
