Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I think I will not get myself on this boat again, but that was a nice experience. Pirates would definitily kill for its power and taste, and strong influence on body;)
Final verdict: Maybe some day I will giv it another shot
Sugar: Estimated at 17 -20 GPL. Wow, does this ever sneak up on you! Wonderful aroma and taste but look out for the punch that comes with it. Burnt Sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla and raisins are the major flavours that I found. It's very smooth and you can drink it straight up but make sure you have a glass of water nearby to put out the fire. As a mixer this would be awesome. I would have more to say about that except that it's not available in Ontario and I was limited to just a taste at an out of town rum bar. It's on the shopping list for sure. You need to have one in your bar for the bold drinkers.
firewater drink - rocket fuel with taste. love it!
Without question this is aimed at the tiki resurgence that has steadily been picking up steam. Really whats not to like about tiki as long as it's not exclusive. Yeah,,,,, well as with anything retro especially those things dealing in specific styles, some folks dive in head first and others see ways to turn a profit. There's no telling to what ends an obsessed time traveler will spend in order to out do their fellow club members. Fortunately everyone benefits from such escapism, at least in this case we all do.
If you love funky estery dunder rum such as Smith and Cross to the point that you consider it a fine sipper, as I, but sometimes wish it had a bit more smoke and more molasses.... this may just get you there. By every account of the marketing jargon it's primary target will have you floating it in a delicious concoction. BUT WAIT! it ain't a bad sipper, though I do get a nagging bit of sacrine in the finish. Not so mach as to be a deal breaker by any means. Really what can you ask for in a 69% abv dark full liter bottle of rum priced at $30? I didn't expect this much so I'm happy.
BTW on the label they have lovingly supplied us with a nose and flavor profile just to the right of the R. Crumb like profile illustrations depicting those involved in this achievement. I'd say they left out a huge dose of black licorice. But hey that just my palate.
Although this is 69%, it is actually quite smooth to drink and has a unique vanilla flavour. Only reason it is not a higher rating is because it's not something i could drink all that often but i would actually consider buying a bottle as it mellowed out even more with 1 ice cube. A very interesting rum that is worth trying.
Nice aroma -must breath in glas longer time. Too strong to enjoy straight. Heating very long time and dry aftertaste.
Strong, yet complex in flavor. It’s interesting and as I finiah the bottle hard to really describe. It mixes really well. It’s rally good overall, but not much of a sipper w/ ice.
Nose not bad for overproof. I put on ice and let it breathe. Not typical gasoline as expected and can be consumed as sipper but not recommended. Had Cuba libre and definitely way to go. It doesn’t have flavor like typical plantation. Overall ok. Prefer something with flavor. If looking for no real bite and extra alcohol mixer this is your drink
Un rhum de marin qui réchauffe !
Il faut, selon moi, le laisser un peu s'ouvrir dans votre verre avant de commencer à le déguster. C'est donc un rhum puissant en alcool et en arôme.
Débutants, passer votre chemin... vous êtes prévenus !
Oh Fxxk That's Delicious!
Funky/ hogo flavour of Jamaican rum, chocolate fudge and fruity dried fruits along with cooked banana.
2 drops of water, less funky while it enhance the notes of chocolate fudge, coffee, cloves, raisins and woody in the glass.
Funky sour cherry and chocolate with caramel while sipping. Slight burning sensation due to alcohol but acceptable.
2 drops of water, enhance the flavour of caramel, banana and chocolate. Unsweetened banoffee pie.
End with dry finishing and dried fruits. Length was shorter than expectation yet it does provide balance finishing.
Cognac overtones wash through to vanilla, nougat aftertastes. Amazingly smooth, a definite sipper. Worth the cost to a T.
Nejlepší volba rumu do koly nebo jiného drinku. Kromě síly je tam stále cítit nějaké koření.
Strong banana note, and the sweetness is tempered by a ridiculous amount of alcohol. Not bad at all
Great depth. Not as sweet as I was expecting. Would be great in an old fashioned.
This has become my favorite sipper on ice. I find it doesn’t play nice with others in cocktails, with exception. It does make a mean mai tai, but I like it best over a big fat single ice cube as a pre bedtime treat or after dinner digestif. Also, the story on the bottle gets extra points. Keep on killin it plantation.
- taste: 69/100

- price: arround 30 eur
Niet goed gelezen en de 69% over het hoofd gezien, weggeblazen door de krachtige maar toch subtiele smaak. Simpelweg teveel alchohol om als sipper te drinken. Op aanraden van een andere user hier de combo met Coke Zero geprobeerd en die is inderdaad verbluffend goed. Alleen is dat niet helemaal waar ik naar op zoek ben en is de fles eigenlijk ook wat duur voor.
Taste like a better version of Pusser's Blue Label.
With some water, it opened up and revealed a nice palet of fruit
It's all in the name. Plantation=good rum, Overproof=hot and strong, OFTD
Raisin, and some.... more Raisin. If you like Raisin then this may be your rum. For everyone else, just skip this one. You could buy stroh rum just as well.
5/10 (I'm not into raisin as you might have guessed)
