Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Firstly this is definitely a non aged rum , very young .
The aromas this spiced rum give off are incredible , with cinamon,cloves spices, aniseed and bannana the main taste.
When you first taste you can clearly taste the added caramel so I would be interested in a hydrometer test being done on this rum .
The aftertaste doesn't have an ether burn which is a positive and I'm confident if they aged the spirit it would compete with rumbullion and ainseed heavy spiced rums
I received this for Christmas. Technically Varti Ddu Rum is a liqueur blend of fine Caribbean rum, with wonderful hints of vanilla, spiced and orange. The extra secret ingredient is a subtle infusion of Pembrokeshire laver seaweed, known as Welshman's caviar.
It's also has a cool back story too - it's inspired by a famous Pembrokeshire Pirate, 'Barti Ddu', or Black Bart.
This rum is great both over ice or as a mixer (apple juice or coke) - the spice is subtle, yet warming and really tasty , definitely one to go for if you see it around.
Possibly the worst rum I have ever tried. Everyone to their own, but I have taken cough medicine that I would give a higher rating than this concoction.
Tried this as a sampler, had to buy a full size bottle. Not as much vanilla as others (for me, less is better). Nice when added to BBQ sauce and over ice cream.
Try it with either cherry coke or any of the alternatives and you have haribo cola bottles in a glass.
