Ce rhum épicé sent et goûte la rose sauvage. Très particulier au goût aucun autre de ce genre. Je l aime bien pour son unicité.
Sweet honey followed by floral and finishes with... well, gunpowder like the bottle says. Not sure what to think of a rum that tastes like the smell of gunpowder. It works for at least one or two drinks as it takes you on that flavour journey every sip. It is better than their chaga flavoured rum, which isnt saying much since the chaga shouldnt have ever been made. Good for a novelty. Makes me want to go moose hunting.
COLOUR: Dark copper with gold and brown highlights; dark apple juice.
NOSE: Sharpie marker; acetone; mild gasoline; thin and watery; salty sea air; funky Jamaican rum; flowery meadow. Score 5/10
TASTE: Rich & thick; smooth; mildly sweet; rummy; young Jamaican rum funk; smoke on the water (very subtle). Score 6/10
FINISH: Medium; lasting burn; sweet rummy rollback on tongue; coconuts on the last sip. Score 5/10
OVERALL: Tastes like a rum; interesting, but ultimately unmemorable; not worth repeating. Weighted Average 5.6
IMAGERY: Tooling around in the ocean in your motorboat, and the fuel line is leaking into the sea overboard.
I moved from the UK to Newfoundland in 2020, so this is well and truly in the cabinet. However, the salt, acting as a less toxic equivalent to saltpeter found in gunpowder, gives this a roughness that might otherwise not be there. The novelty is appealing at first, but generally I find this aspect makes it a bit of an effort to drink compared to other rums in the price range. It also doesn't work well in mixed drinks as far as my experience goes.
Given as a Christmas gift this rum was interesting.
Definitely floral Rose notes to start with mildly salty, gunpowder taste to finish.
Certainly very smooth with very little burn.
If I didn’t know it was rum I would think this tastes more like a whiskey, as it’s not sweet and has a bold flavour.
