Tasty, but not quite great
First off I have to say I have been extremely pleased with all of the tortuga rums I have tried so far. As far as their coconut rum goes I have to say it is my favorite rum in this category. It has a sweet aroma and tastes as good as it smells.
I have found with flavored rum people like to mix them and this rum would be well used in that manner. However, go truly enjoy the wonderful spirit of this rum I feel you need to just have it over ice. Unlike a lot of flavored rums they have not sacrificed the rum for flavor.
I got to try this at the Tortuga store on Grand Cayman. Lots of coconut aroma and pretty good flavor. Not as sweet as Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay. I sampled this straight, which would not be my first choice, but I believe it would make a really good mixer.
I enjoyed this rum, in not real experienced yet and expect to have better soon, but it was very smooth and sweet, probably too sweet for me...
This isn't a bad rum; it has a nice sweet coconut flavor, but it's weak at only 30%abv, and that's why I call it 'sugar water'.
It's basically just that - a sweet coconut flavored rum. I prefer stronger coconut rums, like the Koloa Coconut.
