Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
Great mixer when used sparingly. Obviously you can't drink this straight-out.
Tried it at a party with friends. Pure alcohol made from an old miner's boots mixed with burnt sugar.
Nice taste, but 80% is quite much. It is perfect for adding into the christmas Candy.
I debated whether this deserved a 1 or a 2. It's terrible. There's no doubt about that. But, if you expect that, and it meets your expectations, does it still deserve a 1?
Yeah, I think so.
This is on the short list of undrinkable "rums". (There's still debate over whether this is actually a true rum).
It smells strong.
It tastes stronger.
I try all rums neat before with ice or mixing. This, neat, is like drinking turpentine. Simply horrible.
Mixed, the taste is still overpowering. It's 80%, so it's still going to shine in regular measurements. But even mixing at half strength, you cannot get over that horrible taste.
If you want to mess someone up, give them this. But there are *far* better overproof rums, that are actually tasty.
Nechapu co to tu dela. Stroh preci neni rum. Zadna cukrova trtina-zadny rum
All the people who rated it lower than 4 don’t know that this rum is not intended for sipping or mixing. This is a rum you need to have because it works pretty well in pastry and for keeping your sugar syrup fresh.
This is the only rum I have spit instantly into a Kleenex as going to the sink would be too far. And I was in the kitchen.
Tastes like sore or strep throat spray medicine. Absolutely junk. Would rate it with a minus if possible. It makes the Brugal I rated a 5 seem like a 99.
Absolute garbage. Do not buy. Stay away. Cannot find any redeeming qualities.
Great butterscotch smell and that is where it ends.
This has nothing to do with rum. It burns way too fast and is not suited for anything I could think of.
Puke and alcohol poisoning is all i can remember from this.. never again in my life! Tastes horrible pure and with coke so no thnx!
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!
Stroh 80 and Coke. How can that go wrong?... A taste of Austria and stupid drunkness...
Den er Go til en rumgrock eller te med honning eller lign.
Although the Stroh 80 was the very first rum I tasted over 30 years ago and now having sampled over 400 aged rums, Stroh is really not a rum at all, has no aged rum qualities, no traditional rum flavors, but hey, we all need to start somewhere!
The top 10 worst rums I have ever tried:
1. Barbancourt 4y / 8y / 15y
2. Bounty Dark Rum from Fiji
3. Stroh 40 / 80
4. Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
5. Villa Rica 23y
6. Mocambo 15y / 20y
7. Captain Morgan different variations
8. Don Papa 10y / 15y
9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
Only for shocking people and watch their reaction. Not even a rum in my eyes. Smells more like cat piss
Fy for ¥©€, den smager da bestemt ikke godt, den er helt ubehagelig
There was a time, when i thought rum was bacardi blanco & Stroh 80, i remember the shock when i first tried a real sipping rum. I was surprised how wrong i was what real rum should taste like.
Straight from the bottle: undrinkable, like gasoline.
Mixed with cola: still terrible.
In deserts and stuff: okay, but do is any other cheap normal rum
Overall: glad the bottle was a gift, otherwise would have been a waste of money.
Only as a medicine when I am sick. i drink it in a tea and go to bed. in the morning i feel better.
Mest en joke og høje procenter for pengene. Det er ikke rom i min bog
Tried a shot of it straight... not the best of ideas!
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!
This is clearly a spiced rum, as the taste is more spice than rum.
I'm not great with spices, but I think it has butterscotch, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Nicely sweet too; kind of like a Christmas cake.
Really not that bad, but it's got a lot more spice than rum flavor, and I prefer rum.
