So I love german smoked beer so I thought I'd give this a try. It doesn't really taste smokey like that but very strongly of coffee to me. Second night I blended it 50%-50% with a bog standard white mixing rum and really enjoyed it. The 'smoky' flavour is to overpowering and needs taming and I don't do mixers, only neat sipping so the blending technique has produced some interesting drinks over the years,
Tasted massively of coffee and not rum ... Bizarre flavourings ... Not my cup of tea ... Taste notes of smokiness and coffee
Powerfully smoky rum from the Cut Rum range. Made with a base of Jamaican rum and smoked using oak chips, this will stand out in cocktails and might make for an intriguing alternative postprandial tipples for people with a penchant for peaty whisky.
Got this 5cl sample from the RR Tasting Club.
The recognizable aromas is coffee, vanilla, cocoa and tobacco.
In mouth I recognize sugar, burnt meat, leather, smoke and sulfur.
The finish is medium long, tastes like in the mouth plus vanilla.
Overall a quite complex rum, but 5cl is enough.
Picture: My emptied sample poured in a glass together with two other Cut rums.
It should not come as a surprise to anybody that this rum has a smokey flavour. However, it is so overpowering, so lingering, that it drives away pleasant aspect of the rum.
Not one I'd be keen to drink again.
On the nose:
Sweet forward, reminisce of raisin, chocolate and banana, followed by smoke but that is very light and fleeting, like a whaft when a cold smoker is opened.
On the tongue:
Again sweet forward, but this time the smoke is predominent followed by ethanol tickle in the nose and slight heat on the tongue and throat and tingle on the lips, the aftertaste is strongly that of a toasted barrel with no particular taste.
The smell is much more interesting then the taste, although I would enjoy a glass, I wouldn't buy a bottle.
my misses got me a bottle for my birthday as she knows i like the cut to the spice ,,, my first mouthful left me pulling a face like i just licked an ashtray ,,, out of manners and for safety reasons i carried on as i didn't want to seem ungrateful ,, well im glad i did as with each sip it grew on me ,,, one id buy again
