Tried this new spiced rum recently and was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, this is probably one of the tastiest spiced rums you'll ever have. Very thick and rich with a mouthful of smoke and oak. Figs, black pepper and vanilla run through the notes and the finish is bold and lingering. The aroma is quite unique (smoky and pencil eraser-like) with back notes of leather, nutmeg, and ginger. Going down, pot still notes are prevalent, as is the slight twang of cardamom. Worked effortlessly with Coca-Cola and even better on the rocks. An extremely complex rum!
Much better than expected. Drinkable on it's own, very nice with a splash of cola on ice. Reasonably priced. Much nicer than the standard Lemon Hart rums.
Lemon Hart automatically gets a 10 for every one of their rums, they are all different and have different uses. This is no exception, it is amazing on the rocks, or try it in a rum punch with lime , a bit of honey syrup and Elemakule Tiki bitters, or in a Cuba Libre. Demerara rums are the best in my opinion and this is another great one.
Excellent rum, overall very tasty, good neat or as a mixer if you are looking for a high end cocktail. Very complex, crisp and tastes like rum. No hiding what it is, lots of potent ABV that is there but not overpowering. Nice mouth and finish with a prolonged amount of time to enjoy it after you send it to mingle with the other contents in your gut.
Nez; miel, tabac, vanille, cannelle et même de barbe-à-papa. Bouche; épicé et très semblable au nez avec finale douce sucrée. Rien de sophistiqué mais un rhum très dangereux tant il est facile à boire. Sans modération... il vous enverra au tapis... prenez garde!
I have been a Lemon Hart fan for years, however I was not aware of the Blackpool Spiced Rum until recently.
Quite dark in the glass with good, long lasting legs.
Don't drink it right away. Let it sit in the glass for 5 or 10 minutes.
The aromas become both complex and intriguing.
The mouth feel is far more substantial than most.
The flavors move up and to the back of the mouth leaving a long, enjoyable after taste.
This is a truly complex and intriguing spiced rum. All the more enjoyable given the low price.
Very good demerara spiced rum. Vanilla comes through with that typical demerara flavour.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Lemon Hart Blackpool Spiced Rum bottle and label design looks dull. Deep brown color from artificial flavorings. Super strong glue and plenty of alcohol to the nose and palate. Nasty burn at the end, so better skip this one altogether.
Rhum foncé, très épicé, goût de cannelle prononcé. Comparable au Black spice captain Morgan mais en mieux.
My little sister put me onto this. Very nice full flavor spiced for a dark rum.
I had hoped for more given the storied name, but no luck. Fair enough in a mix, fine with coke, happiest with ginger beer, but beyond that a let down of cloying vanilla syrup.
I mixed it in a Dark and Stormy. If the aromas and flavors can stand up to the Ginger Beer they should shine in any mixed drink. The smell of this was enticing enough I may try a pour on ice. But really, I've got enough fine aged rums to sip.This brings the spice and vanilla I'm looking for in cocktails that need a good spiced rum.
I really like this spiced rum, and some other reviewers said this was even better than the Kraken. It's close. I find it better than the Kraken Black Label (35%), but I prefer the Kraken White Label (47%) to this. All three are very close in my opinion.
Smells and tastes of spice, vanilla, butterscotch, and cocoa. It's a very nice spiced rum!
Sipped over 2" clear ice in rocks glass
86 proof, dark amber color
Nose - heavy. Cola and ripe banana
Palate linger - heavy. Multiple spice linger
Bite - none
LH Blackpool deserves a place on my rum shelf. After 5 minutes on ice, additional (unidentifiable by me) spice flavors emerged on palate. Definitely an adulterated rum, but in the best Guyana way.
