Tasty, but not quite great
This potent tasting rum is made using the best methods to extract flavors from the genuine spices used, and it shows. Clove is dominant, baking and pie spices - if you smell the glass when you are done it smells like someone baked gingerbread cookies. There is actual sediment in the bottom of the bottle.
Interesting bottle, interesting rum. When you open it, as soon as you pour a glass, the flavour and aroma hit you. This is clearly a heavily flavored rum. Clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, they hit you quickly. They are heavy in the air, and vibrant in the taste. It's a little overwhelming, honestly,I think it's trying too much. I've had other very heavily spiced rums, but this one is a little different. It would go well with Christmas, maybe in some baking. We used it in a BBQ sauce. Neat, one glass was enough. Mixed, the flavors shine, but were overwhelming.
This is a rum I would have a drink of of it was offered, but I would probably only have one.
A nice dark pour.
The first thing you notice is a very intense Vanilla in your mouth.
The mouth feel is good, but not great.
As the Vanilla subsides the other spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, etc.) begin to come forward.
The rum is very smooth with just the slightest alcohol burn when you swallow, which is not a bad thing.
The after taste is quite pleasant and lingers for a sufficient period of time.
This is a fine spiced rum, in that their are no artificial flavors or caramel color to make the rum look like it is aged for a long time. Cloves and baking spices are prevalent with just a slight burn to let you know your enjoying rum. Enjoy neat or in Coke or Pepsi.
The Lash is a nice addition to the spiced rum scene. A little more bite up front and burn on the finish but a very rewarding and unique flavor.
I have been dying to try this rum for a while and ordered a bottle online. It makes a pretty good rum and coke. I love the color and the flavor.
From Holland, strong, distinctive, flowery but agreeable after taste. Good stuff, conversation piece named after Churchill's quote: "Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy, and the lash." Tailor made for fetichists!
