Smooth rum and well balanced, get tropical fruits and spices coming through. However the prominent flavour is vanilla. Sweet but not as sweet as other spiced rums I have tasted.
I find rums I drink follow my mood a bit and if looking for a spiced and slightly sweet rum, almost liqueur like
well you won't go far wrong with this one.
It pours deep gold, almost light brown in colour. Aroma is of vanilla, but there's definitely a lot of alcohol on the nose too. Flavour is sweet with vanilla, with hints of caramel and ginger. Just about smooth enough to drink neat, with the alcohol presence. A nice tasting spiced rum though.
This is a nice rum to have with coke it gives it a caramel flavour.
Easy to drink straight or with a mixer. After tastes of toffee and vanilla. Affordable and tasty.
Enjoyed this as a sipper smells like tia maria. General nice summer sipper
A nice alternative to other spiced rums. Quite nice mixed with cola.
This is a very easy to take rum with a hint of ginger, nice with Coke and a slice of lime.
Very spicy ginger flavours in this rum! Nice mixed! Not too sweet!
Similar to sailor Jerry apart from the ginger. Nice enough flavour if a bit too much vanilla but very tasty. Coke ramps up the sweetness even more so try the diet version if you want to avoid it being too sickly. I tend to pour a stronger shot (doubles or more) with the sweeter spiced rums which for me are more enjoyable but all too easy to over do.overall I liked it and will buy again.
A nice sipping rum mixed in with soda water. Vanilla a bit over powering
Named after the locals apparently... This a good spiced rum , vanilla and a nice amount of ginger , plus either caramel or honey (sugar). Lovely nose and spicy finish with a decent warming of the throat. Makes a pleasant sipper with an ice cube but an even better mixer with both Bundaberg ginger beer or a quality cola , will buy again.
Trials have begun. Always try first with old Jamaica, then cherry Coke, and finally Vanilla Coke. Cherry Coke wins on this ocassion. Over lots of ice with a squeeze of lime
A nice spiced rum, goes well with coke or ginger beer. Very good value for money
Currently my favourite Rum. Incredibly smooth, very subtle (not in your face) with a genuine Vanilla Rum Flavour coming thru. Love it!
Very smooth and not too overpowering spiced levels.
This is the absolute sweetest rum I've ever tasted. I would classify its taste as more of a liqueur, than a regular rum. Strong vanilla nose, then sweetness, vanilla, sweetness, ginger, sweetness, rum, and more vanilla in the mouth. Did I mention it was sweet? Being 37% alcohol, and highly sugared and flavored, its easily sipped neat, but I'd recommend an ice cube or splash of mixer to cut the sweetness down. If you're looking for a super-sweet dessert rum for sipping, and really like vanilla, this one might interest you. Its priced very reasonably to try out, which is always a good thing for me!
Other reviewers find this has too much vanilla, didn't find that myself. Good flavour but not quite the depth I would like but at the price it's very good. It gave me a bit of a bad headache the following day.
Sehr helles Bernstein im Glas.
Sofort spring einem die Vanille in die Nase, gefolgt von Karamell und leichten Holznoten. Auch Aromen von frischen Früchten, Bananen, Gewürzen und Ingwer sind mit dabei.
Im Gaumen zwickt einem der Ingwer und die Alkohol Schärfe gehörig in die Zunge, dabei wurde sie doch von der Vanille gestreichelt.
Im Abgang recht kurz und unwirklich.
Sicherlich ein netter Rum für Liebhaber dieser Art. Mit natürlichen Aromen und nicht so süss.
Very light amber in the glass.
Immediately, the vanilla will pop into your nose, followed by caramel and light wood notes. Also aromas of fresh fruits, bananas, spices and ginger are included.
On the palate, one of the ginger and the alcohol sharpness pinches in the tongue, while they was stroked by the vanilla.
In the finish quite short and unreal.
Certainly a nice rum for lovers of this kind. With natural flavors and not so sweet.
Very vanilla in flavour and taste nice with vanilla coke and ice.
A bouquet of spices, ginger, then alcohol. Swallow easily, tongue and mouth burns slightly, syrupy sweetness, spices, then there is bitterness. Easy to drink, but more suitable for cocktails. In my head it becomes turbid, my stomach is hot, but my desire to continue does not go away.
Smells like pineapple cube sweets. Ginger thankfully subdued. Vanilla balanced. Bit sweet overall
In its price range, this is a decent Spiced Rum. It is very smooth and does a good job with Ginger beer and lime. I would stay away mixing this with coke as its sweetness can be a bit overwhelming.
Might buy again.
It's ok, if you're happy to experiment and try different rums then this one is worth a go. After a bottle I see no need to revisit as there are so many more to try.
