Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Michael W.

    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.

    I was expecting this to be good from the reviews on here and from other recommendations, and I wasn't disappointed. Has quickly become my prefferred Rum :)

    Hmm, I was expecting great things judging from the previous reviews, but I was pretty disappointed. It's not high on the spices and tastes a lot more like a regular rum than I'd like. Definitely not in the same league as old recipe Sailor Jerry. I'd say it's similar to The Kraken, in that there is a distinct aftertaste of alcoholic bitterness, kind of like an artificial chemical taste. If you like rich, flavoursome spiced rums, go for my favourites: Rebellion or Chairmans Reserve.

    Scored very well in a blind tasting. Sweet vanilla on the nose, gentle vanilla and ginger taste. Not an overtly spicy spiced rum. Good with coke, too.

    Smooth and delicious, I'm on my sixth bottle since Christmas as everbody keeps pinching it! Just on it's own or on ice is best, it's just too good as it is to add anything to it, perfect.

    Vanilla and milk chocolate. Very silky with enough spice to balance, the finest spiced rum there is.

    Amazing rum! I used Elizabeth Wilson''s cocktail recipe from below with some slight altercations (caramel syrup instead of cinnamon gomme & 50/50 apple juice and rum then top up with ginger beer) Also I had it cold and it was amazing. Made it at a festival and all those around me loved it too! Thank you TWE & Elizabeth Wilson :) Top Rum!!

    Omg this rum is amazing... Got a bottle for Christmas, it's nearly done! Very nice :)

    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!
