Blended for the discerning palate of the contemporary wrongdoers
29 Aug '13
The distillation and aging process takes place in Trinidad where the rum matures in oak barrels for a minimum of four years before it is carefully blended by hand. The result is butterscotch and cinnamon spice aromas on the nose with a smooth and buttery finish in the mouth.
I must admit I have not always been a major drinker of rum, but since I moved to NZ and discovered the Stolen brand I have been increasingly converted away from my usual Whiskey & Bourbons
A bit of bite at the start and a good finish with no harsh afterburn. This is a really good rum and very good value for money. As a sipper 8 / 10 and as a mixer with ginger beer , slice of lime and ice (as indicated on the bottle) also 8 / 10.
At present only available in NZ and Aus , on a slight down side the new bottles are not as flash as the one pictured !! Keeping the cost down i suppose.

I am really impressed by this Rum. From a price point of view locally it was at the bottom end of the scale with a palate closer to the top end.
Smooth and flavourful without being overpowered with caramel or Oak tones, converted two whiskey drinkers and a bourbon drinker last time we busted it out at a party. Neat, straight or if you have to mixed, this is a great edition to try.
