Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Brinley Gold Mango Rum bottle and label design looks very cheap and low end. Strong alcohol and soapy mango coming through to the nose and palate. Quite a harsh burn at the end, so better to mix it up with your favorite soda.
Wonderful aroma of mango. No burn. But extremely sweet and think like schnapps. Will mix well, but can't drink it straight.
I think this would be a good Brinley Gold rum for me if I liked sour rums more. But I don't.
While it does have a syrupy sugar infusion (as all the Brinley Gold rums do), I prefer their other flavored rums more. Tastes and smells of sour mango, with a nice sweet syrupy background.
My favorite Brinley is the Vanilla.
Wicked sweet! Very tasty and would make a wonderful after dinner drink.
just wish I could buy this in the uk I have searched but can not find it
One of the best mango spirits I have ever tasted. On the nose, the scent of mango is almost overpowering. The viscosity of this rum seems to be on the much thicker side, almost syrupy, however, it is delicious. On the rocks, the mango taste is superb and inviting. In summer style cocktails, it truly shines. Add some fresh lime, cranberry juice and see what citrus-y paradise you can sail away to.
Ok some people may not look at this as a rum and that is fine even though it is. Going into the appreciation of knowing it is what it is, Mango, it is delicious and very enjoyable. Nose, Mouth, Body and finish all scream MANGO! Worth the money, all my friends enjoyed and it will be something I plan on having in my collection.
Best MANGO on the market... No one comes close to this one. Do yourself a solid and spend the $20 and you will always have one of these in the cabinet!
After dragging my feet through a tour of St. Kitts where the tour guide mentioned that St. Kitts doesn't really produce sugar cane anymore (totally, disappointing) because it is not lucrative, I came upon this Brinley's Mango rum. I don't really like flavored rum, but this is rich and not too sweet. It's like drinking the mango version of those Goya nectar juices you can buy at the bodega...with a hint of liquor of course.
It's totally worth the $15-$20 bucks they charge. I would drink it on the rocks so the water from the ice cuts the thick syrup just a little bit over time, or in a mixed drink of course.
I'd give it a 10, but flavored rums aren't really my thing.
I know I sound like a broken record, but once you have had Brinley's Mango you will never consider buying Cruzan, Malibu or any of the other fruit rums.
