Flawed with a glimmer of hope
A 4.5 on my scale. Too young and strong, which goes with the comic book bottle label. Mixed it has a slight buttery flavor, but that’s not interesting enough to raise the rating. Not thrilled with the screw top lid
Enjoyed some Street Pumas Rum while vacationing in Tucson AZ. Unique label and bottle design. Cheap at $26 per one liter bottle. Rum hails from Panama but it has been bottled in Spain by an American company. Pure alcohol, vanilla and plenty of oak to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Better mixed than neat sipped.
Seemed like a cool company, liked the comic book aesthetic, always game for something new... Found myself completely agreeing with Joola69 as far as drinking it neat; alcohol, vanilla, oak, kind of boring. The company sells it at a reasonable price for "everyday drinking" which I interpret as "alcoholic drinks for people who are not cocktail or liquor wonks," a well bottle with conversation piece art. An interesting niche to go for.
I figured I'd meet it on its own terms after that and tried it in a daiquiri. It dutifully disappeared between the lime and sugar, and tasted like the best chain restaurant cocktail you could hope for.
So I can't recommend it to the typical reader of this site, but you won't be embarrassed serving it to guests who just want a decent rum and coke or something.
