Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I finally got my hands on a bottle of this flavored rum, made from their white rum and Brazilian coffee. This is my second favorite flavored rum from Brinley Gold Shipwreck on the island of St. Kitts, and I only have their Spiced Rum ranked higher in my separate category of Spiced Rums.
In the glass, this rum is transparent and almost appears to be like any 8 year old aged rum. The taste is super smooth and not too sweet, with rum and coffee complimenting each other quite well. Out of the four new rums that I came home with this weekend, this was easily the pick of the litter.
Their website states that it is , "The only coffee flavored rum sold in the US." Well, their website needs to be updated as of January 24, 2021 because I have found four other coffee flavored rums sold in the US, but none of those are nearly this good. They should replace the word "only" with "best"!
Overall this is a solid rum, only disappointment was the coffee does not carry to the taste.
A toffee taste drives this smooth rum as a sipper with vanilla and chocolate coming out when mixed with coke. Not as overpowering as some of the new coffee whiskeys and rums, a much better overall taste unless you expect coffee to be the main flavor.
Looking forward to trying it in other ways like coffee in the morning.
Some vanilla. Strong caramel. No weird aftertaste. Pretty smooth. Little burn. The more I drank it the more I liked it. Sipper. Crushed cherry was a good complement. Compared to a less expensive New Orleans spicer which was sweeter and had waxy aftertaste. This St. Kitts rum is recommended. The Vanilla rum is a stunner so try that too.
Very tempted to give this 8/10. It has a wonderful bouquet of toffee and coffee but only a hint of rum. Overall as flavored sipping rum it is just a bit too sweet for my taste.
However it is one of the best flavored rums I've ever tasted.
p.s. it make a great addition to any Espresso Martini
I found this in the beginning of my hunt for a good sweet sipper with lots of flavor. This is definitely that with a little bit at the end. You can't beat the $20 either. The bad part about this rum is finding it.
This is the only place I could find it.
