Beverage of the Week (BOW)
The Rums is created and aged in Trinidad, a home to many fabulous Rums. This "standard" Rumson's offering is made of a blend of five year old Rums from the same distillery. I love the slightly funky notes found on the nose and the palate while the bright and friendly butterscotch and caramel notes will please most every drinker. It's designed to be sipped straight or used in cocktails.
Rumson's can be easily summed up by the brand's slogan, "Life Lived, Life Enjoyed." All that is apparent with the Rumson's brand from their unique take on the Jolly Roger pirate's flag that features a silhouette of a boxer poised atop the iconic skull and crossbones. All of the Rumson's Rums are sourced from a single distillery in Trinidad and crafted by blending a selection of casks. Now that we are firmly in the midst of the distillery and spirits brand boom we are often left wondering why some of these new brands exist. There is no question at all regarding Rumson's as the spirit tells its own story and when you speak to cofounder Eric Glass you know that there is an abundance of passion behind the brand. We see a big future for Rumson's.
Brilliant copper color.
The nose offers a very distinctive blast of Caribbean Rum "hogo" that's found in old, traditional Rums of the region. Behind this comes waves of butterscotch, caramel, wild flowers, nutmeg, and allspice with hints of lime and toffee.
The palate is in full agreement with the nose as the sweeter flavors converge on the core giving a silky and buttery mouthfeel with a generous dose of spice and wood to create a crisp finish.
Medium to full-bodied with a rich and silky core backed by loads of spice, pepper, and citrus.
How to Serve
Sip this Rumson Rum straight if you are a lover of Trinidad Rums or use this in your favorite Rum cocktail as the bold flavors will come through with vigor.
