Tasty, but not quite great
I was surprised by how sweet this was! I expected a heavier and spicier flavour due to the colour of rum but was instead overpowered by the sugar. Difficult to justify the price as although smooth, there isn't a whole lot going on underneath.
Bourbon infused rum. A strong taste of bourbon but sharply mixed with rum. This was my first time trying and I enjoyed the taste. Having that extra bourbon taste included gave it an extra lay of taste and will be one I will purchase again in soon. I mixed this with Cola
nice bottle again like many premium brands they take appearance into consideration first of all. Very Thick in the glass and on the tongue, masses of caramel or perhaps burnt sugar too. fairly smooth and lots of taste all the way through to the end. i want to share with friends but also want it for myself. a bit of a dilemma really. Cant find it easily except online where the delivery is prohibitive. I wonder how much sugar is in it?
Batch 003 seems to come in a fancy new long neck bottle with a wooden/synthetic cork.
Aroma is very sweet, cinnamon, orange vanilla and cloves. Taste is surprisingly smooth, but also slightly disappointingly light after those strong aromas.
The orange peel and clove spice overpower any other flavours that might be there.
Might be a good sipper for the Christmas season, depends on the final price though.
At the moment It's in some much stronger competition.
This comes from Lyme Bay Winery, although they state that is from their "Jack Ratt products".
First impressions is the nose that it is similar to Don Papa. The citrusy orangey smell. Carried through to the body that is reminiscent of orange and cloves. Medium length.
If you like a "rum" to be full of orange and cloves, this will appeal. To me it has little to do with rum. In all honesty, it could be some other flavoured spirit there is so little connection to rum.
It is smooth enough, so gets 3 rather than 2. But to me, its pretty awful. And the price...!!!! GBP38.50 - wow! Caveat emptore.
