A spiced rum from the creators of Blavod, named for the red leg hermit crab that's native to the coral reefs of the Caribbean. It's infused with ginger and vanilla before being rested in oak casks to round out and marry the spicy flavours.
Nose: Strong vanilla notes with caramel and spice. Quite cake-y (it’s a word!)
Palate: Silky texture. The vanilla note is quickly subdued by strong spice but as the spice mellows out the vanilla creeps back. Quite rich, cake-y flavours. The texture becomes quite silky towards the end, very moreish. A definite keep-out-of-reach drink... Second visit, the spice is ever-present and the vanilla starts to find its footing, sticking around throughout the experience.
Finish: Medium-short with subtle vanilla notes. Spicy towards the finish.
Comments: Sweet and strong. Makes me want to camp out in the cake section of my local supermarket.

Bought this at the Ideal Christmas Home Show in London for my dad for Christmas, they had a tasting stall and served it in a variety of ways. The one i enjoyed the most was called Hot Rum Slap, you heat up half apple juice, half ginger beer, add 15ml cinnamon gomme and 25ml of the Red Leg Rum, fantastic!

Bought this on a whim on a trip to Glasgow. Very, very nice indeed and the tasting notes review above is spot on the money, although I found it more reminiscent of ginger crunch creams than cake. Very moreish indeed. Try it - you'll love it!
