Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
DeadHead Aged Rum is produced in Veracruze, Mexico from molasses and then double-distilled in a Pot Still. The rum is then charcoal filtered and lastly aged for six years in Sherry casks.
Okay, it has a creepiness factor of 10 which makes it stand out from all other rums out there in regards to containers. However can it stand apart from other rums in regards to flavor?
First off the color is a light amber...closer to a yellow color in some apple juices. It has a slight sugar cane aroma with fair amount of astringency reminding me of ethanol. The flavor isn't too bad. Not great but it hits you with some sweetness and vanilla/toffee tones which then fades into a rather decent burn. Being that it's a blend of sugar cane juice and molasses it does have a bit of an agricole edge to it. The aging gives it a bit of oak bitterness bordering on objectionable but not quite. It ALMOST is a sipping rum but misses just by a tad. However it does very well as a mixer.
I recommend buying one bottle at least for the appearance and if you like it, buy another and tell your guests they were traveling salesmen....WERE....
Okay...feeble attempt at humor.
Not a bad rum. However it really doesn't stand out from other similarly aged rums. Therefore I can't go higher than a 7 here.
Forget the bottle. This is a fine rum. Aromatic. Complex. Singular. Notes of spice, grass, and funk. Makes a mighty fine cocktail, probably is amazing with cola, and is a unique sipper. A little pricey, but try it if you get a chance.
Spicy and dry rum. Hints of cedar, vanilla and honey. The finish resembles a fresh cutted grass fand oak
It was a big disappointment for me. Don't recommend it at all. But it could be worst...
At bought this one as a present for my friend and just took one for my collection. After tasting it I really felt sorry for giving it away as a present, it really tastes like coming out of a fuel tank. It stays because of the great looking bottle, but it will never get empty...
I tried this because of the bottle, but discovered it was delicious
This seems more like a souvanere product, than a serious rum. I find the taste leaning towards tequila rather then good rum. Not for me.
Great tasting rum. I had to have it for the bottle, it tastes pretty great too.
The bottle is the obvious selling point; unfortunately, one cannot eat or drink the plastic.
The rum itself is of darker mahogany brown color, a standard hue conjured by a liberal dose of caramel.
The nose is weak, with hints of caramel, and cocoa.
The taste begins with a weak sweet note (maybe some added sugar, but definitely not much), and develops into cocoa, dark chocolate, tobacco, the mouth-feel is slightly oily with a spicy, salty tones evoking aged salami, and perhaps soap. The finish is short to non-existent, bitter tannin with more cocoa.
Overall, a very thin and muted rum.
Showfles, nuff' said. Scherpe alcoholreuk, en gepeperde alcoholdronk met weinig lange smaak. Je betaalt de fles
I really thought the best thing about this rum would be the bottle...but it is really a good rum...you can even si it although a mixer is its true place for me.
Worst rum I have ever had the misfortune to try. No depth, no character, no noticeable flavours and no redeeming features. Tastes artificial, more like a failed chemical experiment than a rum.
Mexican folks can make some amazing tequila's, but I haven't been able to find even one decent dark rum. Deadhead 6 year old rum has very nice deep dark rum color, smell is pure wood and the taste test is cellar dampness weird sherry cask infusion. Hardly any burn on the only positive side.
Theres not much happening.... I could only smell and taste added caramel. I mean it tastes ok and makes a decent mixer but take the bottle away and your left with a very average rum. Once finished wont be repeated im afraid.
This is one of the very very few rums you only buy for the bottle. Looks neat on the bar, but that's about it. It's not the worst rum out there by any means, but it's harsh, and oddly salty. Not my favorite, but I'm sure someone out there will appreciate its odd palette
nothing over the top but still tasty. bottle speaks for itself
It's all about the bottle. The rum is not as bad as you would expect thought. Harsh finish. It's ok with sprite or for drinks on Halloween.
Very cool bottle idea, however the liquid inside is not that good. Doesn't really remind me of rum in any way.
Zbytečně vyhozené peníze. Rum jsem dostal darem. Má sice hezký obal z levného plastu, ale obsah je srovnatelný s tuzemákem z likérky Drak. Hnus
Schmeckt nur "irgendwie", aber ich weiß nicht so recht, wie ich ihn beschreiben soll. Langweiiger, kurzer Abgang. Lohnt sich überhaupt nicht.
Yes, the bottle was cool, but it was also difficult to open the first time- reuslting in spilled rum. Lighter than I thought. Aftertaste not particularly pleasant. Was a 3.5 on my scale, but here I round down.
I can't help mysefl but i smell plums which is not bad thing but it sets you for something sweet. Then when you try the rum it tastes dry almost tabacco like which is not something i preffer.
Color really hits you as it is more like white tea or so...
Had better, had worse... Not my favorite. Probably won't have again.
