Easily consumable in a bind
At first I had to double check the percentage as I thought I might have bought an overproof rum by mistake. It's a fairly standard 40% but tastes much stronger.
The label claims notes of vanilla and tobacco, but I feel like I missed the vanilla entirely and the tobacco was somewhat overpowered by the general petrol-like qualities of it
Will be drinking the rest of the bottle in cocktails to disguise what is a rum that is frankly, not to my taste at all.
On the lower end of Chairman’s reserve offering some of which are excellent. This is a well rum for mixing, don’t try to drink it straight.
This one makes me shudder....a piquant, pungent punch on the nose and a spice bomb slap in the mouth. Way too much going on here to drink neat and there’s a nasty cardamom flavouring that lingers. It settles down with some mixer but for the price point, there are much better rums. Maybe I have should have tried it with an Indian meal.
Nose: sweet, medical.
Taste: not so sweet and dry, green apple, and smth else i cannot identify, like medical drugs ). Dont have spirit in your mouth, but strong enough.
Aftertaste: smooth and dry.
I would use it as a simple sipper. Good for an evening with fire and friends.. ))
Doesn’t seem that flavourful when dipped on its own (and I wouldn’t call it a good sipping rum.) However, complements a rum and coke really nicely if you’re looking for something different from a standard mixing rum. Not bad.
