It was sangsom that got me into rum drinking. For all haters out there try it as an Agricole and add a tiny splash of 50 % sugar water mix. It ain't quorhum but for me it's not far away considering the the price if you stay in Thailand as a farang. With the aviation ticket we have a totally different price per liter.

Pretty light On the nose and not particularly sweet. Quite warm with a nice bite that is quite aggressive. The aftertaste stays around long after the heat is gone. Undecided if i like the aftertaste.

This stuff is nuts, really cheap in price but it has some lovely flavours in it. It does pack a punch in the alcohol department, but I have had just as bad for twice the price. Way better than any Captain Morgan or Bacardi standard Rums. I'm guessing a lot of folk are just hating this because of snobbery and price.

Ich war angenehm überrascht als ich im Urlaub in Thailand diesen Rum probiert habe. Angenehm mild eignet er sich wunderbar für einen klasse Cuba Libre.

Everytime I taste something I have to judge it in accordance to it's price. Go to a shop in europe and see what you can get for 10 euros. I'm not a rum person, I see rum as a drink for mixing, cooking and drunks/pirates. This one is surprisingly good for 10 euros/l. Straight, with coke or over some strawberries and sugar. It's much more mellow than havana 7 years in terms of smell, but it is also less sweet and tastes better. Surprisingly smooth as well. For 10 euros this is a best buy for me. If you go to thailand, throw a few bottles in your luggage.

Fond of the flavor in a tropical flavored cocktail!

Reviews are a bit steep here. Overall in a side by side comparison, it tastes like a stiffer, stronger spiced version of standard issue Captain Morgan spiced. It's certainly drinkable, just not outstanding.

It's nothing fancy and doesn't pretend to be. I always drink this when in Thailand and there's nothing else like it. If you like Spiced Rum, you'll love this! Great in cocktails with a unique twist, with Coke, Sprite or Redbull if you want to go there. Well worth trying!!

Friends brought this back from a pan-Asian rumfest (don't ask). I was immediately struck by the distinctive aroma of flowers and incense. A little weird, to be sure, but not unpleasant. I have no idea whether this is "rum" as we know it, but it's certainly drinkable, and much less offensive than anything from the swill-mongers who produce Bacardi and Captain Morgan. Oh, and by the way, it's a decent accompaniment to Thai food...
