Pretty cheap (1usd) with funky intense orange color. Quite an experience though. Had drunk it for four years with coke but gives you massive headache and kind of skin allergies ... Real rum lovers would tell you how bad it is

Anyone doing a pirate run in the Philippines will run into this stuff. Strange orange color redrum! Had it on the rocks a couple of times in Cebu and it was starting to grow on me but that might have been the Primero 8 year?
You Probably Need To Be Desperate

Myths and Stories abound in the Philippines about Tanduay and what it will do to you. The ones I've heard include.
- Gives you the worst headache in the world
- Gives you skin allergies or rashes
- If you pour some into a bowl and leave it in the sun after awhile you'll be left with a sort of plastic coating on the bowl.
- It gets it's famous orange colour from all sorts of nasty things.
It is also probably the cheapest rum in the world. You can get 750ml for about $3 US. If you're desperate just grin and bear it. You'll also earn considerable local respect for drinking this straight.
Then tanduay has a really bad rum for you. This stuff reminds me of when I was siphoning diesel out of my truck and accidentally got a mouthful of diesel. That nasty taste took a day to leave. Now having said all that. I will say I had a great time in the Philippinnes and I would drink it again if you forced me to go back to Manila !!!!
