Based on my experiences with spiced rums I was pleasantly surprised. In taste was cinnamon, clove, vanilla and muscat nut. Quite good.
I discovered St Lucian rums on our honeymoon...to St Lucia. We took a distillery tour and sampled all their rums. Well, I did and my bride drove! This is hands down my fav spiced rum, except for the rum I spice myself for tiki drinks!!
Spices, spices and more spices. It has a superb aroma and is smooth to drink straight, no mixer, no ice.
When delivered it did come with a bottle of ginger ale to try with it. This isnt my usual mixer but it did taste very nice and can recommend trying.
This is a good one if you have no other choices and you MUST have a Dark & Stormy. I would have it for sipping unless i had a cigar in hand and no other choice of rums.
It is pretty fruity on the nose, which made it quit appealing, but it feels like a head banger in the morning. Like I mixed it with coke (which I never do), and got a double shot of sweetness.
So its just ok, not great.
Really Heavy Burning Spice!!! Pirates only!!! If you like Heavy Spiced this is Ron right for you! I love rums that have heavy spiced aromat. This is really f*ckin heavy! Great single and with Cola/Pepsi accompaniament! Be aware! This is Huge Bomb!!!! Similar Rons: Ron The Jeremy XO, Kraken, Deadhead, Plantation Original Dark, A.H. Riise Black Barrel Spiced. With all of this Chairsman's Reserve is best!!! Dont f*uck and enjoy!!! Computer Pirates too!
This is extremely Christmassy. You can taste and smell Christmas cake in it at every moment and for some time after you've drank it. Whether this is to an individual's taste would be highly variable. It depends what your tolerance is for heavy sweetness and the unusual.
I'd say that it was good for a tipple over the Christmas period. Actually, if I'm honest, I'd sometimes prefer a really good sherry for that, but this is decent and a change.
I'm giving it a 7 rather than a 6, because I think it deserves an extra point for making a bold and memorable statement.
If you like the sweeter and spicier end of rums, I'd personally say that Dark Matter was better and more subtle as well as being more suitable away from the Festive Season - but this too is very much a debatable point according to subjective taste.
Another similarly wintery one to this is Rumbullion - but that one is a little more subtle, less complex and has a spicey-orange flavour.
Complex taste .....fruity w/ cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, coconut, all spice, lemon and orange also has a bit of a peppery flavor . Mahogany color with reddish tinges. Complex nose of bitter orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet raisin. On the palate a rich sweet mouth feel with exotic spice – nutmeg, vanilla, clove and balanced by a crisp citrus orange peel character. Not easy to find but worth it....tasty as a neat cocktail and also tasted great with some 7-up ! Highly recommend
