If you're a fan of Beachbum Berry (download his app right now!), you'll be using Falernum in your Tiki cocktails with regularity. This is one of the best commercially made versions. I've tried Fee Bros. and it's nasty, but there are others. I'm guessing that you won't go wrong with Taylor's.

What else can be said that most haven't already.
This isn't *really* a rum, but it needs to be in your cabinet. It's very sweet, and could be used as a more flavorful version of simple syrup.

My favorite way to use falernum isn't in a traditional tiki cocktail, but in the Chartreuse Swizzle. It sounds like a simple cocktail but it's absolutely fantastic. Give it a generous nutmeg grate on the top and your tongue will go to the stratosphere. http://imbibemagazine.com/chartreuse-swizzle-recipe/

A must in a corn n oil cocktail , the bomb and tastes so devine. Obviously this is a mixing drink not something you drink on its own ..

Although I don't consider this a rum, this is a requirement for so many tiki cocktails.

Ideal for any recipe calling for Falernum. A touch more syrupy than I’d like but killer balance of all spice notes.

Not really a rum, but rather a syrup used in many rum and tiki drinks. Useful for sure, if you like making drinks, its good to have a bottle in your cabinet.

VERY sweet, and not nearly as good as a homemade syrup. I would recommend looking up Beachbum Berry's recipe, as that is truly outstanding.

Okay, yes it is sweet. That said, I really like the combination of flavors and sweetness. This is not intended to be a sipper but a mixer. It truly shines in tiki drinks or the classic Corn 'n Oil. Truly an indispensable ingredient in any good home bar.

People who complain about this falernum don't understand what falernum is. Don't talk to me about your internet-obtained recipes, this is what is sold and drunk on Barbados. It's what falernum is. This version is a bit lighter on the spice than some, and not as rich in flavor, but definitely works as it should.

I'm really not sure how to rate this because it's not really a rum but a liqueur. However, it's an invaluable mixer for tiki drinks so it's definitely very important in everyone's bar arsenal. Look at any tiki receipe worth it's weight from the likes of people in the know like Beachbum Berry or Martin Cate of Smuggler's Cove and you'll see countless recipes calling for Velvet Falernum and this one is the one mentioned most when you don't have the time or desire to make your own. Own it's own as a sipper it's way too sweet but works great as a mixer.

This isn't a rum! However, it is an essential ingredient in Corn N' Oil which is what I bought it for. For that alone, it's probably a good addition to any collection. I should really try using it for more drinks! Even in Barbados this seems to be something of a niche bottle, in the UK you'll be lucky to find it any way other than mail order.
