Revealed! Our No.1 choice of Rum to enjoy on this Wednesday's National Rum Day!
National Rum Day is almost upon us (it's this bloomin' Wednesday!) and we can't wait for an excuse to crack open a bottle of the fine stuff.
Believe us when we say we've tried a few Rum's in our time and there's only one brand that will cut it for us on the big day.
We're talking about Ableforth's, Rumbullion! A full-bodied, beautifully spiced rum which is made from a secret recipe which uses Cinnamon, Cardamom, zesty orange peal and creamy Madagascan vanilla.
Each bottle is wrapped in brown paper with a black wax seal over the lid, so it looks the part as well as tasting it. We suggest drinking it neat, or with ice and a squeeze of lime if not Coca Cola.
Ableforth's Rumbullion is available from masterofmalt.com and here's what they have to say about it in their tasting notes;
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: A fabulously decadent nose of intense, sweet vanilla and flamed orange zest. The cardamom makes itself known by offering up an evocative suggestion of old-fashioned cola, and to this the cloves bring out a deep, dark complexity. Yet more sweetness comes from the juicy, fresh cinnamon, which melds beautifully with a core of the essential oils of Seville orange peel.
Palate: At once a fabulous mix of thick cut bitter orange marmalade and tingling, zinging spices. Hints of Manuka honey and mouth-watering cinnamon form its heart, with molasses, candy floss, toffee apples, crème brûlée and clove-studded oranges.
Finish: A long finish, with tongue-prickling spices, and a stunning degree of freshness as the cinnamon, orange and creamy, sweet vanilla coat the palate for minutes.
Overall: Rich and profoundly intense, this is a rum to see you through the coldest months.
Our Verdict: Available from only £35.95 via masterofmalt.com there's no better Rum on the market. Please drink responsibly.
