Tasty, but not quite great
Falernum is a must in many tiki drinks and even though the very best and most vibrantly flavored falernum is homemade, this one is a good option.
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/
Obviously i can't rate this as high as actual bottles of rum but it is a really solid liqueur to use in cocktails. The taste is very nice and spicy but of course very sweet too.
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 ..
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.
