I received this for Christmas. Technically Varti Ddu Rum is a liqueur blend of fine Caribbean rum, with wonderful hints of vanilla, spiced and orange. The extra secret ingredient is a subtle infusion of Pembrokeshire laver seaweed, known as Welshman's caviar.
It's also has a cool back story too - it's inspired by a famous Pembrokeshire Pirate, 'Barti Ddu', or Black Bart.
This rum is great both over ice or as a mixer (apple juice or coke) - the spice is subtle, yet warming and really tasty , definitely one to go for if you see it around.
A smooth blend of Caribbean rum and the most delicate selection of spices and flavourings. Perfect with a ginger beer!
Firstly this is definitely a non aged rum , very young .
The aromas this spiced rum give off are incredible , with cinamon,cloves spices, aniseed and bannana the main taste.
When you first taste you can clearly taste the added caramel so I would be interested in a hydrometer test being done on this rum .
The aftertaste doesn't have an ether burn which is a positive and I'm confident if they aged the spirit it would compete with rumbullion and ainseed heavy spiced rums
The rum pours a deep gold, almost light brown, in colour. Aroma is sweet with vanilla and clove, with a hint of alcohol when swirled around the glass. Flavour is sweet with orange, vanilla and spices. I don't think I can distinguish the Laver seaweed out from other spiced rum that don't have it in, but I'd probably notice if it wasn't there. The rum is of a great quality to drink neat, but I'm quite partial to having it with a ginger beer too.
