Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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...
No surprise here that this is a vanilla heavy sweet rum.
Initially I wasn't very sure about this one as the vanilla is initial a bit overwhelming. You can smell and taste the real vanilla bean in here no artificial stuff there (but you never know) and has a nice spicy kick at the end.
Nice to see for a change that a spiced rum has been at least bottled at 40% abv so it can take a little water which actually calms the vanilla down a little bit and opens up the other citrus and spicy flavours.
Not too expensive in the UK for around £24. Can see this working really well in cocktails although I expect you will have to do some experimenting to get the vanilla balance right.
Very nice with coconut water.
I'm not generally a fan of really sweet rums, but this is delicious... it tasted even better as it was free!
Interesting. Very strong Vanilla taste is the very first thing you notice quickly followed with an alcohol punch. Solo it's for 5 but I can imagine this in some sweet cocktails. Definitely worth a try either way, tell me, how often you can taste rum from Mauritius?
A couple of very generous glasses Provided by a friend proved pleasant. Quite nice if a little harsh on its own and fairly ordinary with a coke. I tried with a less sweet diet coke too as its already sugary to taste but it came up a little dull for me. All in all ok but nothing special
Nice but very weak in vanilla taste easy to consume over an evening but a poor vanilla rum
I tried this rum a few months after it was available in the UK a number of years ago now. Strong, real vanilla scent and flavour with underlying citrus. Overpoweringly strong to drink straight, but this is magical in a pina colada or mojito. Premium cocktail rum, use it right it is fantastic. Not bad with cola, but you will only want to use a small amount otherwise it becomes rather strong.
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.
Un spiced rum très agréable, chargé en délicieuses notes de vanille malgache et de rhum agricole mauricien pur canne de la maison Médine. Chaleureux à l'attaque.
I would use this mostly with rum and coke. I prefer other vanilla rums to this. The bottle is cool though.
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.
oui, pourquoi toute cette vanille ajoutée???
on devine un rhum très jeune, avec de l'arome de vanille.
Mais trop pour moi, je suis déçu peut être a réserver aux cocktails???
tout a été mis sur le design a mon sens
The rum has fantastic smell and taste.
Enjoyable in certain drinks but for me, it's a mood rum.....
A golden thick spiced rum, the vanilla in this is quite slight, sips nice over ice and goes well in a mix.
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.
