Tasty, but not quite great
First saw this and ignored it due to the association with the name. Gimmicks are usually poor, so when I got a taste via a relative I was most surprised. Fairly smooth with lots of sweetness which I like. Not sure if its toffee or caramel but I liked it enough to buy some more in future. Now that I've rated a fair few I notice that quite a lot of my ratings are in the 7 or 8 bracket. I have reached the conclusion that i have rated on MY taste and appreciation and not on other recommendations, like some others on this site. If you have only tasted 10 different rums and you love half of them why not give them a great rating.On the flip side it would be good if we can re rate in the passing of time too.
Tento rum mě trochu zklamal, čekal jsem kde co, ale o co lepší byl seriál po kterém se rum jmenuje o to horší byl obsah láhve.
Ve vůni je cítit vanilka, skořice, hřebíček, punčový řez a v pozadí cola a kolový oříšek. V chuti cítíte punč, hřebíček a colu. Voní a chutná jakoby už byl lehce namíchaný s colou. Po napití vás ihned pohltí jeho neotřelá ostrost, je ostrý od začátku až do konce, i když chutná sladce, na jazyku je takový řídký a vodnatý, bez olejovité konzistence. Někomu bude určitě chutnat, mě bohužel příliš neoslovil.
Pours a nice cola colour. Definitely a rum and raisin aroma, lots of sweetness on the nose, plenty of vanilla and some orange and a mild hit of spice. Very pleasant. Taste is slightly different, you get spice right up front, very peppery, smooth and fruity with a sweet hit as it lengthens out, not as sweet as the aroma in the mouth.
unfortunatly i don't like it that much, reminds me of coughing syrop or jagermeister. Still do-able if you mix it with soda or when you are already are a bit tipsy
I didn’t find this rum until we were well into the Christmas season and the nutmeg flavour seemed wildly appropriate.
This rum quickly shot into my top 5 after a few sips. For the price you would pay for this bottle is exceptional for the quality of rum you get.
This in an incredibly smooth and flavourful drink that I couldn’t help but share around with every rum drinker I knew.
This spiced rum is named after the famed ‘Peaky Blinders’ of the midlands and TV show. The Sadler Brewing Co also hail from Stourbridge in the Midlands. As well as this delightfully dark spiced rum they offer a range of other Peaky Blinder inspired spirits which include an Irish whiskey and gin as well as a stock of ales.
The black spiced rum is a good 40% abv and typically comes in a 70cl bottle. It has won a Gold Medal Winner prize at San Francisco Spirit Competition in 2020. It costs around the £22 mark.
In terms of the rum itself it is obviously dark in colour, on the nose the vanilla really shines through, on the palate the orange peel notes are very predominate. As per usual I tried it with a variety of different mixers, whilst tasting it with tonic I discovered it really brought out some of the flavours but left it a little bitter, I added some simple syrup and lime juice and this seemed to balance it, I wondered if it was shaken with ice, syrup and lime juice and the strained and then adding tonic whether this would really elevate this drink. The other mixer which worked well with this rum was coke, few ice cubes and a slice of lime made this a really strong, punchy Cuba Libre.
Overall this is a good rum and it is easy to see why it has won awards, it was my first delve into the branch of dark spiced rums and I think this is a much better alternative to other brands such as Kraken.
As I am not a huge fan of spiced rum, but this one is not entirely bad. The sweetness is somewhere in the middle of the spiced rums range. Overall, the smell and taste is somewhere between spiciness of Dead Man's Fingers, cocoa/coffee tones of Black Tears and vanilla/spicy style of Kraken. The rum base is almost hidden in the flavor, the aftertaste is on the bitter side, with a bit of an alcohol bite. If you like spiced rums such as Kraken, Dead Man's Fingers or Black Tears - you might like this one as well.
"Up front it offers a quick sharp burst of sweetness. Followed by a fade of bitterness."
