Almost paint remover!!!
on 20 February 2015
Hmmm? I dont understand all the "Its lovely" reviews on here? I enjoy rum, I have several bottles of dark, golden, light, white and spiced from all over the world ranging from £11 to £54. I saw this at £20-ish and from Australia, so I read the reviews and thought I'd give it a go.
It taste like bad tequila. It is certainly not a sipping rum. I added a splash of water which with Malt whisky helps open up the flavours and remove any harsh fieryness. It didnt work. I tried it on ice, its somewhat dulled down the taste so was a bit better. I cut a big wedge of fresh lime and squeezed it in and dropped it in also. Now it was a bit better but not much. Add coke or whatever mixer you want but there's no getting away from its chemical poor quality tequila/mescal flavour. Find it hard to believe its rum actually. My brothers son lives in Sydney Aus, and he said its what all the scallies drink there, cheap to get drunk on!
I will not be buying this again, there's so many 200% better rums for sale at a cheaper price! Capt. Morgan, Bacardi, Myers, Lambs Navy to name a few
