The Scarlet Ibis rum was initially produced for exclusive use by the Death & Co bar in New York, and now available in available to the public in limited quantities as supplies last.
This rum is a blend of pot-still rums from Trinidad that were aged 3-5 years in white oak casks. The name is derived from the bright pink Scarlet Ibis bird, which is native to the Caribbean and adorns the bottle.
Recommendable to most
A+ rum, price is right proof is right. A bit obscure in the realm of classic rums. Perfect right down the middle young rum with a solid foot on the dry side. Care has been taken into crafting this, If your seeking good quality rum you will not be disappointed one bit.
Fresh and light aroma. Smells like sweetened sea water with a subtle brininess to it, in a good way. Interesting peppery harshness at the front. The back end is where you find the faint molasses flavor. The finish is surprisingly smooth. No burn in the throat but a pleasant heat in the chest (that 49% doe). Would work great in a well crafted cocktail when looking to add a sharp flavor profile as opposed to sweetness. Definitely not an entry level sipping rum but enjoyable neat or on the rocks when looking for a peppery smack in da mouth.
Unfortunately my bottle didn't come as pictured above with the attractive long neck and cork top. Better luck next bottle.
Taste perfection, the absolute poster child for a young rum. It show's in style that a perfect rum does not need to be old. It just needs to be made with skill.
No caramel added, aged for 3 years, a good high flavour carrying proof and pot stilled. Slightly too expensive at 45€ which means I won't buy it often but it still maintains a 10/10 because it is just that well made.
A thoroughly enjoyable straight sipper.
This rum may not be the most beautiful of rums, but it is - hands down - one of the best rums that i have tried.
The taste is sharp but at the same time delicate and savory.
If you prefer a rum that is not to heavy on fruit taste, you should try this.
I love this rum, and am glad/lucky I found it in the random liquor store I stopped in on a cross country driving trip. I have yet to have seen it since.
This is a good bottle, kind of hard to find in these parts but worth treasuring once you track some down.
Keep it simple. Daiquiri with a splash of allspice dram and you are all. Set.
To be honest it’s just ok. I got interested in this rum after hearing it was commissioned by Death & Co. and that it’s made in Trinidad so I really expected a lot more out of it. There’s not much personality to it which may have been the point of it was intended for cocktails. Not sure I’d buy this again.
