Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I bought this knowing next to nothing about rum. I liked the bottle and the fact that I'd be supporting a local MN distillery. That being said, looking back on my experience this rum, I can now say just how bad it actually is, especially for the price tag that it comes with.
The rum itself is very pale, and resembles rusty water. While it smells of cinnamon and nutmeg, you could definitely smell a bottom-shelf burn on the end of that flavor. The taste proved this thought -- it tastes like mediocre rum with spices used to cover it up.
While I'm loath to give a bad review to a local distillery, this simply wasn't good. But... 3 stars because mixed with coke it wasn’t terrible.
Enjoyed a glass of Ålander rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design look nice and unique. Very pale color, almost grayish. Very strong and offputting artificial flavors straight to your nose and palate. Nasty burn at the end. Can't even mix this one to hide the nasty taste.
Saw this at a local store recently. Never heard of Nordic rum or Alander brand. Comes from Minnesota. The bottle is cool but hides a monster. I understand it is a spiced infused rum but the color is very weak. Looks like dirty tap water. The smell is very subtle and quite nice. The taste however is horrible. Understanding it is more than likely meant as a mixer, but it would take a lot of something else to mask the bitter, sour, and cleanser like taste of this rum. Stay away!
