Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Medium body. A bit harsh on first taste until your palate adjusts to the slightly higher than usual ABV. Notes of caramel and molasses, some chocolate, with a respectable amount of funk from the Jamaican component, but the Barbados sweetness seems most prominent out of the islands used for this blend, Has more personality than Appleton Signature that makes this an appealing choice for (surprise) tiki drinks and could stand alone in builds that usually call for multiple. The rums used are a bit on the immature side, which is somewhat apparent in the slightly harsh nose and makes me suspicious of the dark color. Slightly cheaper options bear similar traits, but I’m glad to have tried it nonetheless. Alongside some 151, it added some appealing layers to a Jet Pilot cocktail. Worth a try for the curious mixologist
Würzig, sprittig, aber trotzdem gut. Eigentlich nicht meine Art Rum, aber weiß irgendwie trotzdem zu überzeugen. Trotz Prozente gut pur zu genießen
Rum tasting in Baton Rouge continued with Tiki Lovers Dark. Childish bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Pure rubbing alcohol mixed with plenty of Jamaican funk and glue, some rotten bananas and raw cocoa to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Nasty even as a mixer.
Blend of jamaican(hampden estate), barbados(foursquare) guyanese and trinidad rums, bottled at 57%, not sure about dosage, caramel colour probably added.
Nose: first impressions i get of this is a mixture of Myers and El Dorado 8 with lots of standard dark funk flavour, also quite strong rum raisin type notes, lots of Guyana burnt caramel notes and then some of the so called chocolate,
light molasses sweetness.
Tasting reveals bit dry harsh kick, trini column still adds quite a lot of lightness when compared to the very rich nose.
Maybe not for the common "sugared xo rum connoiseur" but this is a very good value mixer for tiki fans so thumbs up from me.
Fermented banana, very sweet in the nose. A lot of brown sugar and some earth. Taste: A lot of power and full of dark chocolate powder and butter, however, only slightly sweet. Also some flowers in there, very interesting.
