Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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!
