Truly a fantastic choice
The first taste is that blast of overproof alcohol, but this is quickly followed by a blast of pure, caramelised pineapple. Absolutely delicious (and probably lethal!)
So this is the first bottle I tried after being informed by this site.
It simply is amazing! Allthough the 60% alcohol is a bit too much for me. I tasted alot of flavours in this rum. Sometimes I thought it even smelled like some sort of bubblegum. Great drink!
This rum is in my top 5!
I only drink it neat, simply with a cube of ice! Only wish would be for a bigger bottle but it’s smooth and strong.. If I’ve had a fantastic night out with friends or family this is my my drink before bed! Love it
I was curious how a 65% rum would taste and i got suprised! Sweet but not tot much for me, definetly a pineapple flavour and soms more layers. Biggest suprises was that there's very little burn, more like a warm afterglow.
I wasn’t sure how this was going to tase, but it was pretty damn good! The first note is the pineapple which has that tangy fizzy taste that pineapples do. I honestly expected an artificial taste but it was nothing of the sort. After that, you are left with the sweet salted caramel which is what you are left with. I do often like rum that has a lot of vanilla due to the sweetness and I have to say that the salted caramel does come close to it, but the spices do round the whole taste off. Overall, completely different to anything else but could do with less caramel and more spice.
To be honest I'm not a spiced rum fan, however I am a Guyanese rum fan and when I read the base spirit was from the Diamond distillery pots thought let's give it a go. First impression on opening the bottle was an olfactory explosion, a big wave of alcohol (it's 65% ABV - 130% proof) followed by big hits of pineapple, banana, salted caramel and spice, the taste was amazing, again big hit of alcohol (we all sampled it neat, no ice) followed by all the same smells converted to flavours, Wow this is something different, is it a classic like my 21 year old El Dorado? Too early to say, is it possibly the best spiced rum I've tasted....yes it is. Will have get get more when I run out and it's back in stock.
