Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
We tasted cheap rums today the liquor store I work at and all I can say is that it is better then the silver.
Alcohol nose, tasting notes are boring, and there is a bit of burn at the end. It is drinkable on the rocks in a pinch, but you don't buy this rum for sipping.
Trader Vic's gold rum exists for one reason and one reason only: Mai Tais. And it makes a perfect Mai Tai. This rum is distilled to be mixed, and it mixes brilliantly. So I give it a 6/10 for perfectly doing exactly what it is supposed to. (and not much else)
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Trader Vics Gold Rum bottle and label design is very lame and boring. Light golden color. Alcohol to the nose and palate. Awful burn at the end. Mix it with Coke and down it goes.
Not as bad as I thought for such an inexpensive rum.
I found a bottle of this on the shelves on a visit to Lexington, and thought I would give it a try. I didn't expect much, assuming they were riding on a name. I was pleasantly surprised. It sipped OK and was pretty good in mixed drinks. The price is not bad either.
