Tasty, but not quite great
After reading some average reviews, I didn't hold out much hope, but was pleasantly surprised that this was a nice drinkable rum straight.
Pink Pigeon has a pretty decent bottle design but very unattractive light amber color. The smell is exactly like a vanilla toothpaste would taste if it would exist. Maybe a vanilla flavored mouthwash is a close comparison point. Taste is overwhelming vanilla. Not a success by any measure.
I'm not keen on this, but it is different, I'll give it that. It has a vanilla flavour but not the strongest one. It does taste more of white chocolate than anything else. There's a small kick at the end, so I wouldn't call it smooth. It has a few flavours in it I can't quite place...rose and violet creams maybe?
It's kind of a more subtle version of Rolling Calf - not as smooth or spicey, but much more like a traditional rum.
On the other hand, it was a cloying sweetness that I don't like. I like sweet, but not this type of sweet. The St Aubin's Vanilla rum is much nicer.
When you put a drop of water in this, it calms the perfume down and is a little nicer.
