I don’t usually write in-depth whisky reviews, mainly because of time constrains but also the for reason that so many other bloggers do it. But the product I recently discovered in our local supermarket made me change my mind.
This is a proper spice bomb, not immediately recognizable as rum. The makers mention just a ‘hint’ of cardamom, but for me this is the most dominant aroma. It’s actually quite enjoyable, if you expect rather a liqueur than a real rum. – Rating: 81/100
A rather strange beast, this rum. Being very fresh and strong on the nose, the smooth and sweet palate is quite a contrast. The sweetness is a bit too overwheling for my taste, I have to admit. – Rating: 76/100
This aged rum has similarities to both cognac and certain types of whisky. You might be able to sneak it into blind tasting of either being unnoticed. A very pleaseant drinking experience – Rating: 86/100
A very rich stout, perhaps a bit too much on the bitter side for my taste but very flavour-intensive. You wouldn’t guess the whisky connection though because it blends very smoothly with the beer. – Rating: 82/100
This is not your everyday sticky-sweet liqueur, in fact it’s amazingly dry. Extremely tasty and full of aromas, but you might be disappointed if you expect a noticeable whisky influence. – Rating: 82/100
