Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Kingston Spiced Rum bottle and label design looks very cheap. Light golden color. Very strong industrial strength flavors to the nose and palate. Simply awful liquid masked in a rum bottle.
Not very good. Better than Bacardi but not by much.
I really should not expect much from the bottom-shelf cheap rums I find at various stores and I really should stop buying them out of some warped curiosity. Usually I end up regretting it. This is one of those times. Allegedly this is a rum from Barbados but I am not sure I buy that.
Anyway, the aroma is sort of weird for a spiced rum. That should be the first clue. Hard to describe. Not really a chemical sort of aroma but doesn't seem to be natural either. Honestly I can't pick out any specific aromas.
It is a light amber color and has a very thin consistency. Very little in terms of legs.
Flavor-wise, this is clearly a highly sugared rum with undertones that run heavy on vanilla. Has some pepperiness to it. Leaves a bad taste on the finish.
Better pass on this if something better like Bumbu or Siesta Key spiced rums are available.
