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.
A different kind of spiced rum. Smooth. Tastes of pepper and nutmeg. Hints of root beer and liquorice. If you mix with coke its a top tier doctor pepper. A nice change but not one you could drink everyday.
After a little research this is one of if not the only spiced rum produced with the whole spices in the cask. No artificial anything added. Strong spicy flavor. The clear winner in the spiced category in my opinion.
Has a great dark colour and an interesting story behind the name. The nose is strong with cloves and vanilla. Taste is strong with cloves ,cinnamon ,ginger, vanilla and nutmeg. A finish with pepper and a medium burn is sippable but should make a Dr.Pepper tasting - rum and Coke or a tasty rum and eggnog. Thank you to my wife for picking it up in Saskatchewan.
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.
