Recommendable to most
The taste is amazing, a well made rum with a strong and sweet banana flavor.
On the rocks, in a mixed drink, in a frozen drink or poured over a piece of cake or poured over a whole cake, dizzled on ice cream...this rum has a 100 uses.
Can you make a stop to any of the Caribbean islands, visit the Tortuga Rum Cake factory and be lured into the free tasting of the Tortuga 'rums' ? Not really, so let's get straight to business. Any of the Tortuga 'rums', regardless if its the 'aged' rum or any of their flavored 'rums' by the end of the day are just sugar overloads liquor drinks and nothing to do with a proper aged rum. The Tortuga Banana is one of their most natural tasting drinks, the rest of the lineup is very artificial in the flavor profile.
Enjoyable rum to be sipped neat. Nice banana flavor though you are kind of limited in the cocktails you mix it with. Another hard to find flavored rum, making a cruise to the Cayman Islands a good excuse to load up on Tortuga rums.
This is hands down one of my favorites. Only reason it's a 9/10 is the fact that it can only be found on the Cayman islands. This rum has a great tastes and really locks in the banana flavor as your drinking it. I usually sip this one but have seen it mixed with great results.
