Tasty, but not quite great
The smoothest tasting rum with a Caribbean aroma. You can't go wrong with any line of tortuga unfortunately it's not available in many state in the U.S. i find the gold here and there but not the 12 and 141 or coconut those are my top picks
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. The Tortuga Gold has a strong alcohol taste and a nasty burn at the end, so not recommended to be a neat sipper. Mixed it with Coke and there is a slimmer of hope left.
I purchased this on the island of Grand Cayman, a few years back and enjoyed it. I recently found it again in the Bahamas! Usually associated with their luscious rum cakes found, it seems, on every Caribbean Island, Tortuga rum has a nice flavor that can be enjoyed neat but ideally suited, mixed in soda. Try baking your own rum cake using Tortuga rum...ah, paradise
Sugar: 0 to 5 gpl. This is a good rum for mixed drinks, especially rum and coke. Lots of flavor that blends well with Coke or in Pina Coladas. It's not available in Canada and when I am in the Caymans, or on a cruise I pick up a couple of bottles. I would not classify this as a sipping rum, but for a bar rum it is a very good value.
