Serious improvement needed
What we call "Inländer Rum" ist no Rum and was created with artificial flavors back in times when real rum was very hard to come by.
the stuff is usually used as a baking ingredient, or for flavouring punch during xmas.
It also goes well in small amounts with coke and hot tea - its what youll get when you order tea with rum at your skiing holiday.
Its not bad, but its simply not a Rum, so don't rate it as one
Okay, this is it. This is the stuff of legends. The bottle this was tasted from was gifted to me by me grandfather and was bought in Austria in 1982.
Nose: Sugar, Liquorice Root, Herbal Medicine, Caramel and Vanilla Extract
Taste: Sugar, Plastic, Liquorice Root, Herbal Medicine and Vanillin with a artificial, but surprisingly short aftertaste
Overall: Well, this is just bad. I knew it would be, but it still is.... bad. The artificial flavours covers up the 80 abv pretty well and it drinks much easier than that, but it is simply bad "rum". It gets a 2/10, because it is quite good to use in your baked goods.
I do not consider this as a traditional natural dark rum. It might be suitable for hot drinks or mixing. I would not consider this as a sipper. Taste is almost burning and it has unpleasant notes that i have not tasted before in spirits. Likely the second worst spirits experiense, and i like some bitters like branca although taste of Stroh is not very bitter.
I drank this, as one does, at the bottom of a ski slope in Austria. Even in that scenery, this stuff is awful. There must be some use for it, because in every supermarket everyone stocks up on the stuff, but drinking isn't it.
I don't think this is intended to be drunk undiluted, but it's wonderful sprinkled over chocolate cake (transformational!) and great added to coffee. My Dad, who was Austrian, used to add it to his coffee on a cold day. Personally, I wouldn't add it to mulled wine because the flavour is a bit too assertive, shall we say. I always keep a bottle handy, myself.
