The rum has fantastic smell and taste.
Extraordinary rum - lighter colour, full fruity and fresh smell and nice warming and complex taste with fruit and spices. Nice!
I'm not generally a fan of really sweet rums, but this is delicious... it tasted even better as it was free!
Its nice straight up or with coke but probably on par with rums that cost about £10 less. The vanilla flavour isnt overly strong but overall quite smooth and tasty.
First had a shot of this in TGI Fridays, heard a lot about it, not disappointed, seems a lot of flavours hoping on. Sure it will grow on me more, so purchased a bottle...
I wasn't sure what to make of a rum made out in the Indian Ocean, but I really liked the taste. It's a bit different than what I'm used to, but it really grew on me. A fine sipping rum.
I had read a lot about this flavored rum...sort of a mixed back. Sounded like one I would like to try and finally found a bottle while in Jacksonville.
According to their website the rum is infused with Bourbon vanilla, citrus, and orchid petals.
Now that's a first.
The rum itself is a light straw color with an interesting vanilla extract type aroma. The flavor is heavy on the vanilla which I happen to like. It does have some sweetness that may indicate some sugaring. I cannot find a definitive answer to that. I do taste the vanilla...can't miss it...and there seems to be a citrus undertone but I have no idea of how orchid petals taste so if it's there I don't detect it. It comes in at a typical 80 proof (40% ABV) but does not have a burn. Instead it has a slow warmth that seems to take forever to fade leaving a very vanilla finish. This would make for a good sipping rum but if you really like vanilla flavoring. If not, use this in mixed drinks where I think it has its greatest strengths. This rum, with its emphasis on vanilla, might be an excellent choice for rum ball and for baking.
Un rhum avec un gout de vanille prononcé mais pas désagréable.
Definite flavour or white chocolate. Really smooth sipper. Easy drinking.
We spent an afternoon trying different rums and this was our favourite. It felt thick, had slight vanilla notes, was quite mellow and easy to drink
Moreish rum but maybe a touch too sweet, suppose it depends on if you have a sweet tooth or not. The rum however is a pleasure to drink but I couldn't go through 3 or 4 measures I'm afraid. Lovely vanilla and banana tones with a hint of spice. Very indulgent and an after dinner delight I would have thought.
Un rhum originalà sortir pour surpendre vos amis, armateurs de rhum comme néophytes. Un nez particulier avec un côté médicament. Un trop très claire. Un rhum aromatisé à la vanille avec donc un goût assez prononcé de...... vanille. Personnellement j'apprécie d'en boire un verre de temps en temps après un repas entre amis. Bouteille stylisée, ce qui n'enlève rien.
I tried this rum on Mauritius. Very nice rum, sweet vanilla punch... good rum for sipping.
After reading some average reviews, I didn't hold out much hope, but was pleasantly surprised that this was a nice drinkable rum straight.
Very hard to find in Australia but i would recommend picking up a bottle if you come across one. Very sweet and quite heavy on the Vanilla. Normally drink this one neat with a couple of ice cubes, goes down very smooth.
Very nice rum. Light vanilla smell, complex taste, but think its for girls :)
I prefer dark rums, but this is good choice for impressing someone. The first taste is good, but a bit strong. The vanilla taste is strong and you could enjoy it with ice in hot summer day. Also the "birth place" of this spirit is quite interesting.
A vanilla ice cream tinge to a light flavour. An almost thick consistency yet easy to drink.
Distinctive. Vanilla. Not too many spiced rums that i like neat and in mixers but this is. 6.5
De couleur très clair. Un nez vanille. Une attaque vanille, puis une grosse note d'alcool, mais l'ensemble reste bien rond.
Try with your girlfriends guys but alone I think it is just liquer
Matige drank. Vergeet bacardi breezer. Dit is de ideale fles om een een blowjob te versieren.
Een mooie zwarte fles die een lichte rum bevat.
De pink pigeon heeft een heel zoete vanillesmaak, voor mij persoonlijk net te veel. Hoewel ik graag spiced rum drink. Ook met cola blijft dit zo.
Un rhum divertissant : un nez très particulier mais une couleur en bouche très intéressante.
Je partais avec une certaine réticence : il parait que c est le rhum "tendance" servi en boite de nuit (parisienne).
Passé la bouteille au design superbe, le nez m a surpris (pas forcement en mal même si certains de mes amis m ont dit qu il sentait le médoc).
En bouche et bien c est vraiment pas désagréable !
C est sûr, ça tient plus de la chimie que de la tradition (vanille, caramel, agrume et même bois!) mais il faut avouer que ça passe bien quand même!
A conseiller donc pour son originalité et pour les "spécialistes" voulant être déroutés.
