Tasty, but not quite great
Got this rum in St Lucia. Because of the vanilla bean inside, it has a bit overpowering vanilla taste when drinking it neat or on the rocks but it really shines and you mix it with coke. So if you like to drink rum and coke, give this rum a try. You won't regret it.
Goûté ce weekend à Ste Lucie, ce rhum arrangé n'est pas mauvais.
Design : basique, le rhum a une couleur dorée.
Nez : dominante de vanille et de cannelle.
Bouche : ce rhum à un goût de sirop pour la toux, attaque sucrée, puis note de caramel suivi d'une amertume.
Rien de transcendant mais pas mal avec du cola.
Another rum made with the Caribbean aphrodisiac "bois bande" (from a local tree bark)... This St. Lucian rum has a decent amber colour and a novel vanilla bean in each bottle.
The rum smells of vanilla and has a vanilla taste as well, although the finish leaves you with a sweet cinnamon flavour. This rum is too harsh for me to sip, but was OK with Ginger beer. It would probably do better with cola.
As for it's effect, I think it works :)
Updated / Upgraded to a 6 (6.5 If I had the option. This is a nicely spiced rum that goes great with cola.
This spiced rum is more of a traditional spiced rum 35% ABV. It has less cinnamon and sweetness compared to Chairman's spiced. It was much less spiced compared to the local spiced rum known also as under the counter that you can get in St. Lucia. If you go to St. Lucia I strongly recommend seeking out some local spiced rum. This rum has some main notes of cinnamon, clove, and vanilla. Updated rating after tasting at home. Fairly smooth aged 3-4 years. I found it better than Chairman's spiced rum.
I am not crazy about spiced rum but I bought this one in St-Lucia and I was curious, mostly to see a piece of wood inside the bottle. I found this rum to be very good, and tasted what I expect from a spiced rum ; spices, and dried fruits.
The piece of "bois bandé " inside is supposed to have aphrodisiac vertues !
Tasted it for the first time at the distillery in St. Lucia. Found a small bottle in TCI that formed a larger bottle with Bounty and Chairman Reserve.
