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.

If you love cough syrup then this rum is for you , one of the worst I have ever tasted

This is no rum, only a flavored spirit. The 80% ABV make it stand out but not better.

fun to watch the reviews here for this particular rum, and if you are a connaisseur it's probably best you don't touch this one with a barge pole. but it's me, the guy that likes rum and coke. i'll touch anything just to try. and this one i tried quite a bit back in the day. it's just rocket fuel when drinking neat, that's why the big "80" is on the bottle, so you know. but when mixing with coke it's pretty damn nice. and you only need a tiny bit of it to get the flavour out. goes really well with hot tea, chocolate milk. good stuff, even though it's not 'THE' good stuff.

edit note: was really for the 160 proof stroh. that's the rocket fuel one.

I first drank this stuff on our family trip to Austria in 1978, different laws about coming to age back then! Under current european law this is not a rum but it got its own status as 'inländer rum' . Nowadays made from molasses (again, by law) but they used to make it from sugar beets.

Taste, color, it is all achieved by additives and as far as I know there is little riping going on; cheap alcohol brought to life (?!) with additives. This should only be used to drink pure (or even watered down) when you are very desperate. But it is not its purpose at all, it is meant to be used in the kitchen (pastry) or added to hot drinks like coffee, tea or chocolate and for that it will do.

So for everyone using rum in the kitchen who is not willing to use the good stuff from your kabinet this is a cheap way to leave your precious bottles untouched.

I don’t agree with the poor ratings but to each is own. You don’t need a lot of rum, I mean jet fuel to do the trick. The flavour is chocolate like and is actually smooth. Long nose. I would say it’s a good complementary rum when you’re tasting unique blends.

Great rum for mixed drinks, it is not to great for a shots. You can feel oranges but alcohol is No1. As a Jagertee it is great options for drinking. Enjoy it!!!

Etwas künstliche Aromen, sehr stark und natürlich gut zum mixen.

The strongest one in my collection (80 vol-%, 160 degree) Not the badest idea after a long day of riding your board in freshly powdered mountains. But be warned: This one is
not considered to drink neat according to the label on the bottle. It’s therefore often used to power up a cup of tea and in all kinds of pastry.
Nose: strange, not recognizable as rum
Palate: quite burning, syrupy, but not as disgusting as expected when sipping neat. And yes, I had worse liquids calling themselves being a ‚rum‘.

Neodporúčam piť samotné,ako pomôcka pre barmanov ok. Tu platí "čo ťa nezabije,to ťa posilní"

It's not rum, it's not liqueur, this isn't drinkable. Worst drink ever.
