SangSom is a Thai rum that gained great popularity in the 1980's, thankfully it is once again beginning to get a lot more attention internationally. SangSom is made from sugar cane molasses and is aged in oak barrels.

The nose is particularly aromatic whilst the flavour is distinctively mellow. It is no wonder that this rum has become so popular!
Nice as a long drink.
I love this stuff
After working in Thailand for 5 years this was my drink of choice. The locals serve it long with Chang Soda Water and a splash of full fat coke. Recomended.

I drank this stuff all the time in Thailand and my memories are bittersweet. It has a taste that you get used to and eventually come to love but don't be fooled. It's cheap, nasty and has a variety of industrial uses. If your a rum connoisseur, avoid. If you want to reminisce about holidays or show your friends the flavoured paint stripper you drank, go for it. I'll be ordering a bottle soon for just that reason.

This is the rum I started to Drink after a long spell in Thailand after tiring of drinking beer. I find it best served with a splash of coke and a good squeeze of fresh lime juice over ice, it's ok for sipping but lacks the spiciness of other spiced rums.
