Tasty, but not quite great
I'm not really a fan of spiced rum but this one isn't terrible and better than most of the spiced rums about. Obviously it is very sweet and more suited to mixing rather than drinking neat.
Neat, I don’t like this. For me there is no sweetness at all, just too much of a acrid sensation once swallowed. However, mixed with a quality mixer this rum morphs into something much more mellow and sugary. I tried this first with Coca-Cola and yes it did improve the rum, because the pineapple finally comes through, making this drink sweeter. Nevertheless, I found that even when mixed with Coca-Cola there was still a weird unpleasant aftertaste. So I tried Rubicon fizzy mango as a mixer, because I discovered that mango and pineapple are meant to go well together. And yes bingo. Using Rubicon as a mixer instead of Coca-Cola, this rum becomes deliciously fruity and sweet, and more importantly, the jarring aftertaste disappears.
I found this rum a much nicer drink than the original Red Leg spiced rum. The original is very sweet and can only realy be mixed with a sharp mixer. Mix it with coke and you may as well be drinking a glass of sugar. This version however is a much better flavorsum drink. Im not a fan of pineapple but it cuts the sweetness and gives it a great taste. If you have a choice of either one, go for this one you will not be disapointed.
