Serious improvement needed
Lowered a few bottles of this very strong Austrian rum when I was on a skiing holiday in Kitzbuhl, Austria as a teenager.
It falls into the same category as the Thai varieties Mehkong and SangSom, ie party, party, party without caring about what you drink.
I do not consider this as a traditional natural dark rum. It might be suitable for hot drinks or mixing. I would not consider this as a sipper. Taste is almost burning and it has unpleasant notes that i have not tasted before in spirits. Likely the second worst spirits experiense, and i like some bitters like branca although taste of Stroh is not very bitter.
I drank this, as one does, at the bottom of a ski slope in Austria. Even in that scenery, this stuff is awful. There must be some use for it, because in every supermarket everyone stocks up on the stuff, but drinking isn't it.
I don't think this is intended to be drunk undiluted, but it's wonderful sprinkled over chocolate cake (transformational!) and great added to coffee. My Dad, who was Austrian, used to add it to his coffee on a cold day. Personally, I wouldn't add it to mulled wine because the flavour is a bit too assertive, shall we say. I always keep a bottle handy, myself.
A very unique rum, easy to judge negatively. However if you take time to appreciate its sophistication you will find its utterly fabulous
If I get a sore throat and cough I am reaching for this! It has a very strange color....like Ricola. It has a very strange taste...like Ricola. Sort of an herbal Jaegermeister, Robitussin mix. I was tempted to take it with a spoon. It would have been a natural in a Wild West medicine show peddled from a covered wagon! Strong like medicine too! The more I sipped it the more I kind of liked it. It’s smooth too, in an earthy medicinal way. I like it. Especially if it helps my cough! Hey Billy Bob! Give me a couple bottles of this Wild West Ricola tonic will ya?
