A decent rum, that never really stood out for me. As my bottle is winding down, after having used it in cocktails for the past year or so - I find myself not having much to say about this rum one way or another. It's not bad - but it's not special.

Nose is bland and vanilla… palate full at the beginning but with an end of spearmint.

The Scarlet Ibis from @hausalpenz is a blend of 3 and 5 year old Rum and is named after the National Bird of Trinidad.

49% ABV.

Appearance: 4/5 Golden Color
Taste: 3.5/5

Nose: Vanilla, caramel
Palate: Vanilla, wood flavor, honey

Overall: 3.5/5 - We enjoyed this rum however, with the 49 ABV we expected a little more. We will say this though, the price came in at 29.99 and for that this is a really good rum to use in a cocktail. Especially a Mai Tai.

Tasted 10/17/21 at Laka Lono.
Rum 2 of 4 that day.
Tasting notes indicate: Sweet!!! YUM!!!! This is a VERY delicious rum that does not taste like a bird. It is kinda warm.
Edit: Also tasted June 27, 2021 at Laka Lono. This time I gave it 5/5 so I am changing my rating to 9/10
Flavors of fruit, vanilla, almond and ginger. So good!

Very young. Smooth with a subtle bite that is really enjoyable. No depth. No complexity. Light finish. This is indeed a good young rum. I just don’t like young rum. Not do I understand it fully. “Leave this in the damn barrel”. It is good enough to produce a real beauty in a few years!

Tasted at Laka Lono on 1/14/20. My first Austrian rum. This makes for a good mixing rum, but likely not to be consumed neat. Vanilla aroma, soft caramel. The pepper burn clings on your tongue.

Never saw this one in actual Trinidad.
Good for sipping and mixers!
Strong natural cinnamon and vanilla notes make it taste like the 1790s! 🏴‍☠️

Like a softer old santa teresa before they made the formula sweet. At 59% abv its surprisingly smooth

Tasted a year later and lowered the rating by 1, not sure if the batch changed but introduced a much mire bitter finish and a pepperminty element. Starts off of light vanilla unimposing and then suddenly changes gears to the bitter winterfresh vibe.

Made for mixing, but this rum is fantastic on its own! A little peppery zing to accompany the dark, rich loveliness. At $22 usd it’s incredible.

Bought this to use in a craft cocktail, but ended up enjoying as a sipper as well. Works neat or with a large ice cube. Will definitely purchase again.
