Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Enjoyed having a rum from my state of Florida. Not the best silver but it’s not something I’d look over. I guess it’s not amazing for its price it might do better at a lower value
Was hoping. I try to support local her in FL, but this is similar to the shellback silver. Its the same silver rum that is bottled by every bottling company in the state. I would love it was heavier, or different, or oily, or something other than the usual run of the mill dry, sharp, and almost caustic tasting juice that already runs the market.
Rum tasting in Memphis on a very rainy Veteran's Day continued onwards with Big 5 Silver Rum. Pretty nice and unique bottle and label design. Clear color. Plenty of citrus and mild vanilla mixed with a lot of unaged alcohol to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Dry but short burn at the end. This is not a neat sipper rum.
Another local Florida-made rum, Big 5 silver is a classic Cuban-styled silver rum perfect for a classic daiquiri or a mojito.
I started by trying it neat. It has a fresh, crisp, fruity bouquet, but you can smell the alcohol too. With the first sip there are citrus notes that want to be paired with lime juice or orange zest, and just a little burn as it goes down.
I added an ice cube and a twist of lime, and this rum was in its happy place. It still has a little burn, but the citrus notes sing. Not a rum I would typically drink straight, but this will make a great Cuba Libre.
