Bought me two bottles of this spiced rum before it disappears totally from the market now that Pusser’s instead of this one have the Gunpowder Proof Spiced in their line-up.
It’s said that Pusser's have made it by steeping a blend of spices in the rum for seven days.
The nose is sweet, spicy with very strong hints of orange.
At the palate it’s rather sweet and ginger, cinnamon, pepper, orange and nutmeg are recognizable.
The finish is just medium long probably because of the low ABV at just 35%.
Drinking this rum neat is of course doable, but it’s probably better in cocktails or drinks.
Picture: My opened bottle with my poured glass.
This one is more expensive and less sweet alternative to Praded and Becherovka liqueurs - if you like these kind of things which have pronounced taste of clove and herbs (I don't), give it a try. If I forget the spices - the rum base itself is quite smooth.
Al naso Cannella, mandarino caramello.
In bocca è abbastanza morbido, agrumato finale intenso.
Abbastanza piacevole in abbinamento al cioccolato.
Very nice citrus/orange aroma. I was expecting to taste sweeter and fuller...turns out it's really mild, can taste the herbs with a bitter finish
Nevěřil sem ale pokud nějaký rum chutná jako Becherovka tak 100% tenhle. Za mě velmi zajímavý spiced rum který určitě není pro každého ale mě pobavil.
Okay, you just finished your meal and feel that urgent need to munch on a sweet dessert? Then that's the rum for you, right there! Very light, the burn is almost non-existent and only 35%. Smells of orange hints and of liquer, in general. The taste is like biting something sweet, feels like eating a cinnamon pie. Couldn't discern the entire range of spices, but is aromatic and very, very sweet! Velvety feel, stuff is downed particularly easily, to the point you feel like gulping greedily away at it! Nothing memorable, total absence of aftertaste, too. Still, i like it way more than a Reserva Exclusiva, at least this shows some things and is more interesting to both sniff and drink. Don't ask me to sip that on special occasions, though. Is certainly going to help in my diet; i no longer crave sweets, post 30 ml of this, served right after dinner or supper!
Alkohol: 35 %
Původ: Britské Panenské ostrovy
Aroma: Becherovkové koření, bylinky (rovnou jsme s kamarádem, který měl při ochutnávce doma náhodou lahev otevřenou, vyzkoušeli, jestli je podoba s Becherovkou skutečná, nebo se nám to jen zdá, a opravdu je to tak, jen u tohoto rumu je ona vůně jemnější). Dále skořice, hřebíček. (82 b)
Chuť: Pikantní, štiplavá, výrazně kořenitá chuť a to hned v začátku, dokonce peprná a až do chilli. Dochuť je ve stylu Becherovky, ale s výraznou peprností. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Chuťově neobvyklý, originální, nesladký a štiplavý spiced rum, který babičkám nekupujte. Zajímavá rumová alternativa k Becherovce.
This is quite creamy in texture - a little like Captain Morgan - except that this is much better. The spice is laid back, the rum is smooth, the smell is subtle and the overall effect is of a laid back, gentle spice in a nicely rounded rum. It's better than most spiced rums but not as good as the best, lacking a little flavour compared to Rebellion or Elements 8, for instance; and not having the character of something like Chairman's Reserve or Dark Matter. However, if you like your spice to be warm and subtle, you'd probably score this as a 7 or 8. I prefer a bit more oomph.
