Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
After reading some average reviews, I didn't hold out much hope, but was pleasantly surprised that this was a nice drinkable rum straight.
Pink Pigeon has a pretty decent bottle design but very unattractive light amber color. The smell is exactly like a vanilla toothpaste would taste if it would exist. Maybe a vanilla flavored mouthwash is a close comparison point. Taste is overwhelming vanilla. Not a success by any measure.
I'm not keen on this, but it is different, I'll give it that. It has a vanilla flavour but not the strongest one. It does taste more of white chocolate than anything else. There's a small kick at the end, so I wouldn't call it smooth. It has a few flavours in it I can't quite place...rose and violet creams maybe?
It's kind of a more subtle version of Rolling Calf - not as smooth or spicey, but much more like a traditional rum.
On the other hand, it was a cloying sweetness that I don't like. I like sweet, but not this type of sweet. The St Aubin's Vanilla rum is much nicer.
When you put a drop of water in this, it calms the perfume down and is a little nicer.
the authors probably spent more time on bottle design and story behind that rum, as on taste itself. Its simply not my cup of tea. strong in afterburn as well as very strong in added vanilla flavour.
Un rhum originalà sortir pour surpendre vos amis, armateurs de rhum comme néophytes. Un nez particulier avec un côté médicament. Un trop très claire. Un rhum aromatisé à la vanille avec donc un goût assez prononcé de...... vanille. Personnellement j'apprécie d'en boire un verre de temps en temps après un repas entre amis. Bouteille stylisée, ce qui n'enlève rien.
Moreish rum but maybe a touch too sweet, suppose it depends on if you have a sweet tooth or not. The rum however is a pleasure to drink but I couldn't go through 3 or 4 measures I'm afraid. Lovely vanilla and banana tones with a hint of spice. Very indulgent and an after dinner delight I would have thought.
Some young lady approaches a bar. "Wow what is that? I wanna try that! Hmm vanilla! Thats soooooo good, I wanna drink this!" Shitty rum in an attractive bottle, thats all.
Deze elegante, mooie -ik geef het toe, redelijke vrouwelijke- fles brengt hoge verwachtingen met zich mee, jammer genoeg tempert de geur het enthousiasme volledig...
Deze rum lijkt me beter om in cocktails te gebruiken want zowel puur als met een traditionele 'coke zero' kan hij me niet bekoren. De venijnige vanillesmaak is niet lekker en de geur blijft me achtervolgen...
Een mooie zwarte fles die een lichte rum bevat.
De pink pigeon heeft een heel zoete vanillesmaak, voor mij persoonlijk net te veel. Hoewel ik graag spiced rum drink. Ook met cola blijft dit zo.
Very hard to find in Australia but i would recommend picking up a bottle if you come across one. Very sweet and quite heavy on the Vanilla. Normally drink this one neat with a couple of ice cubes, goes down very smooth.
First had a shot of this in TGI Fridays, heard a lot about it, not disappointed, seems a lot of flavours hoping on. Sure it will grow on me more, so purchased a bottle...
I had read a lot about this flavored rum...sort of a mixed back. Sounded like one I would like to try and finally found a bottle while in Jacksonville.
According to their website the rum is infused with Bourbon vanilla, citrus, and orchid petals.
Now that's a first.
The rum itself is a light straw color with an interesting vanilla extract type aroma. The flavor is heavy on the vanilla which I happen to like. It does have some sweetness that may indicate some sugaring. I cannot find a definitive answer to that. I do taste the vanilla...can't miss it...and there seems to be a citrus undertone but I have no idea of how orchid petals taste so if it's there I don't detect it. It comes in at a typical 80 proof (40% ABV) but does not have a burn. Instead it has a slow warmth that seems to take forever to fade leaving a very vanilla finish. This would make for a good sipping rum but if you really like vanilla flavoring. If not, use this in mixed drinks where I think it has its greatest strengths. This rum, with its emphasis on vanilla, might be an excellent choice for rum ball and for baking.
