Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is unique and interesting. Absolutely love it straight. I'm sure mixing this makes it more palatable for less daring drinkers, but in my humble opinion, it is wonderful by itself for more seasoned individuals not so easily overcome by a throat burn. I don't enjoy taking shots, because it bypasses too much of the experience of any alcohol. Room temperature and slow, full mouth swallows is my way to fully enjoy this gem. If you have to be reminded not to drink 160 proof alcohol too quickly, then maybe learning from that mistake will be a potent lesson.
Only if you are real drinkers you can manage to feel the wonderful taste of this rum.
it is not true that you do not hear that it is a rum if I didn't known that it is Austrian I would not believe
It has been over twenty years since I've had Stroh Rum. Last time I had, the bottles were clear - not tinted. Now I just can't find it here in the D.C. Metropolitan area. As I recall, it was some good hardy rum just the same!
This is what the old Boys from Brazil used to put in their tea. One drop on the tongue tastes like you've chomped down on a Cadbury Rum and Butter candy bar, shooters not recommended. I'm just suggestible enough to try and find some today; haven't had this in over 30 years.
I use this in fruit mixers...not a well drinkingbrum
Har alltid gillat smaken..
Passar utmärkt i Cola o glögg..
While I have drunk this neat nobody should.
Fun in coffee but not really rum, just takes me back to Austrian winters and flavour is interesting
Great mixer when used sparingly. Obviously you can't drink this straight-out.
Tried a shot of it straight... not the best of ideas!
the 80 being the alcohol by volume ...... meaning 160 proof. I showed alot of the (legal age) kids that you can't shoot everything. They never questioned me again about it. LOL
Not sure what you would do with this strong of rum, but it's not all bad.
Lekker om.te gebruiken in dessert niet om zo te drinken . Maar dit is mijn mening natuurlijk
Chopok a kazde lyze po tom. Musi se pit do slzicek, das do pusy a valis po jazyku dokud ti nevyhrknou slzy, pak muzes polknout
Bring the fire. Good for mixed drinks with high octane.
To je drtivej nápoj, 80 % mluví za vše, neni to žádná chuťovka ale plní svůj účel spolehlivě.
Popravdě ani nevím, jak tenhle rum chutná. Piju ho jen, když potřebuju nakopnout k lepším výkonům na tanečním parketě okolo třetí hodiny ranní.
To be honest, at 80 ABV I expected more alcohol astringency upon first sniff. But after initial tasting...WHOA! Like spiced gasoline! Pretty repulsive on its own but makes for a decent mixer in small doses. I've rated it five bottles due to its unique flavor and mixing quality (in small doses!). Just don't try this neat. Blechhh!
Es un ron fuerte, muy fuerte, te acompaña en boca durante todo el dia, y solo con una copa, solo apto para gargantas fuertes !!
Etwas künstliche Aromen, sehr stark und natürlich gut zum mixen.
Stroh 80 and Coke. How can that go wrong?... A taste of Austria and stupid drunkness...
Yes, yes... it's Austrian not Carribean, it's waaaay overproof, it's not even "real rum" as some say, but still... it has quite nice aroma imho when mixed with cola, and when mixed 1:1 it has a surprising smoothness given it still keeps then a robust 40% on board! Thus a perfect drink if you want to feel a pleasant effect quick and without consuming volumes. Not to be sipped or drank straight quite obviously, unless you are a robocop... or a Polish student :)
If you want the perfect rum for mixing with hot water and cane sugar, then this is the rum for you. If not, choose something else
This rum is like an emergency shot you take, when you need to warm quickly or get wasted. Or get it on some dried fruit. Then it is good. Not useful as a sipper of course.
Stroh 160 Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Used bowling shoes. Fresh horse urine. Burned Christmas ornaments.
Taste: Charcoal briquette lighter fluid. Plutonium-90. Soil. Toffee.
Finish: You're kidding, right?
It's hard to review this as if it was actual rum, because it's arguably not. It does taste great with coke and can drink you under the table if you're not careful. Works amazing with hot drinks, hot chocolate or tea and it's great at low temperatures.
Not something you'd drink in a club or on a sunny terrace.
