Can you make a stop to any of the Caribbean islands, visit the Tortuga Rum Cake factory and be lured into the free tasting of the Tortuga 'rums' ? Not really, so let's get straight to business. The Tortuga Light is meant to be mixed with Coke, so not recommended to be a neat sipper.
If you want a pure light additive free Caribbean rum then this is an option. This was blended in Jamaica, not sure if distilled there also but likely based on its somewhat fruity nose. Easy to take neat but a little alcoholic in taste and nose. This I believe is aged for 3 years prior to filtering to crystal clear. That said you get some nice spice and vanilla from the barrels.
tortuga from Grand cayman
25 Apr '15
Just got back from Grand cayman where I bought three different rums. They gave me a bottle of tortuga light for free so of course I am going good to drink it. It's good for a light rum. Better than bacardi. I also got some tortuga mango. It's awesome, my new favorite flavored rum. I wish they would add it to the data base so I could rate it. I would give it an 8.
