Recommendable to most
Interesting non-standard spicing profile. Light golden colour. Smoked aroma with hints of leather. Salt on lips at first sip with bites of spiciness on tongue. Butterscotch and herbs can be sensed in subsequent sips as one gets used to salt. The sweetness does not however make it up for moderately harsh burn in the aftertaste. Overall an interesting and recommendable experience but i prefer others.
The saltiness is new but goood. Very complimentary to the other sweet and spicy flavors. Like a good meal, first you have the savory (salty) dishes before you move to the dessert (sweet). This is where vanilla plum and rozes come to taste. The aftertaste is spicy to remind you that you're drinking a good rum. Black pepper, dark chocolate and cinnamon for me here.
Really good rum!
Rum tasting in Amsterdam started with Union 55 Salted and Spiced Rum. Nice and unique bottle and label design. Light golden color. Unique salty taste straight away mixed with caramel to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Sweet and short burn at the end. Definitely a unique rum hailing from the Netherlands.
I got this rum in my monthly subscription box and I was not disappointed. It is unusual to have sweet and salted but its really good. Straight up you get the hit on salt on your lips instantly and as you drink it the warm caramel sweetness warms your throat. I found that with ginger beer this is an epic mix. Highly recommended
The salt really comes through, its a very unique tasting rum. Only tried straight up, but I also imagine the salt taste would compliment a sweet mixer too
