The Burning Barn Rum company is local to me, hailing from Hampton in Arden Solihull. As the name suggest they began to create this beautiful craft rum when their barn burnt down, as it states on their website ‘Motivated by the disaster of our barn burning down we set about creating a true craft offering from Rum drinkers. The fire taught us never to settle. To always go that extra mile.’
The Rum itself is 40% abv and comes in a beautifully crafted 70cl bottle.
To begin with the rum is golden in colour, on the nose it has aromas of vanilla and ginger. The first tastings really enhanced the fiery ginger aftertaste. When mixed with coke the flavours tend to fight against each other. When mixed with ginger ale the smokiness of the spiced rum combats the flavours of the ginger ale, but when mixed with tonic water, the tonic enhanced all the smoky flavours without compromising the essence of the rum itself.
Not for me, this one.
I didn't get much aroma from it, probably because the waiter who served me mistakenly put ice in it.
The taste ... well, there's plenty of it. This stuff has a lot of flavours going on at once. Probably too much, really. I struggled to make sense of it.
The finish is chilli, which is quite enjoyable, but to get to the heat, you first have to negotiate the confusion of the spicing.
If you like your rum bitter with a little chilli kick at the end, you might like this one.
Enjoyed 2 glasses of Burning Barn Spiced Rum while in London. Pretty decent bottle and label design. Dark color. Strong wood and vanilla straight to your nose. Mixture of all spices, ginger and vanilla to the palate. There's definitely some burn at end. Unique rum for sure to try out.
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for about £4.
It's too rough and artificial for me. Strong cinnamon clove and vanilla with way too much ethanol there's much better spiced rums out there. Would work well with cola but definitely not a sipper by any means.
Spiced rum with a difference, spiced birds-eye chili, and cold smoked using apple wood, as well as roasted ginger, allspice, and vanilla gives this rum a spicy warm smokey taste that is very unique, worth a try
