Rumbullion! Bottling Note

A sure-fire hit from Ableforth's, Rumbullion! is a cockle-warming spiced concoction, based on the kind of rich, full-bodied rums the seafaring fraternity would have enjoyed centuries ago.

At the core of this fabulous winter warmer lies a blend of the very finest high proof Caribbean rum, to which was added creamy Madagascan vanilla and a generous helping of zesty orange peel. A secret recipe was followed, finished with a handful of cinnamon and cloves and just a hint of cardamom.

Rumbullion! proudly flaunts its maritime inspiration with a label that bears a hand-drawn illustration of a Navy grog tub, emblazoned with the words: “The Queen, God Bless Her”, and just like all of the fine spirits in the Ableforth's arsenal, each bottle is wrapped in crinkled brown paper, wound with twine and sealed with black wax.

Enjoy it neat, or with ice and squeeze of fresh lime.

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.

User Reviews of the Rumbullion!

Not sure I had the same thing as other reviewers

This thing doesn't taste like rum at all, it tastes like moonshine and medicine with a cough syrup finish.

Rumbullion

Nice if you like liqueurs

19th April 2016

one of them

Love it

Sublime

I'm a newbie to rum drinking, but have been making up for lost time since I tried Chairman's Reserve Spiced rum in Cornwall, one cold winter's afternoon. I didn't think I'd taste better than Chairman's .. but then I sipped Rumbullion. What an experience. Sweet, warm, complex, dark amber elixir. The hunt for something comparable or, dare I say it, better, will drive my rum drinking for years to come. Got my Rumfest tickets, but I don't expect to find anything to match this wonderful liquid.

10/10

Creamy, smooth, sweet and spicy - a beautiful drink. If you are a hardcore rum drinker then it might be a bit too on the fanciful side but in my opinion this smashes any other drink out of the park. Top job, love it!

Peter Robinson

A wonderful rum,just pour it on ice,be warned once tasted you will want some more.

28th February 2016

Wow what a rum

Try drinking it with fever tree ginger beer! Probably the best rum I've had in ages!

11th February 2016

Christmas feeling

It's good but of an odd kind for beeing a rum, tastes like Swedish Blossaglögg!
I would drink it again but if you are looking for a RUM...for this price? you can absolutley find better.
Overrated!
6/10

3rd February 2016

Nicely spiced

Not sure what I was expecting with this, but I'd heard good things so decided to give it a try. Massively rich and cockle-warming - not like other spiced rums - this one feels 'bigger'.

25th January 2016

Fantastic! 10/10

Absolutely beautiful! Best rum I have ever had, gave some to my dad as well who spent his 20's drinking rum in the navy and he loved it as well. Can't wait to try the navy strength & 15YO versions as well.

15th December 2015

Thank you!

By far the best taste that has crossed my lips in 18 years of drinking, I never rate a product after but today I know I owe it to those who created this to say oh my God that is sublime. Now I just need to get some sent to New Zealand or move to somewhere that it's available!

2nd October 2015

Outstanding - 10/10

On the nose a beautiful bouquet dominated by cloves and a marzipan-like sweetness, followed by plenty of vanilla and christmas spices. Taste-wise it has plenty of dried fruits as well as cola, milk chocolate, caramel and again, vanilla. A sensationally smooth spirit which I will most certainly be purchasing again in the near future! Better drank with more Rumbullion.

11th March 2015

Completely unique

What a wonderful drink, massive hit of cloves and spices on the nose which you expect to taste when you take a sip but instead there's sweet vanilla and Caremel finish. This is such a great, unique drink!!! buy it

5th January 2015

Perfect for Christmas!

Absolutely gutted when I ran out. Beautiful spiced rum to drink by itself! Try it you won't regret it at all!!

24th December 2014

Outstanding spiced rum

As a general rule, I'm more of a dark rum drinker, but occasionally a spiced rum can persuade me to switch...this is by far the best spiced rum (and even one of the best rums overall) that I've had.

Highly recommend!

17th December 2014

BEST

easily the best rum I have ever tasted and I have tried the lot !

5th November 2014

Premium Taste

I was lucky enough to get a sample of Rumbullion in my premium rum tasting set and the moment I tasted it a ordered a bottle.

A wonderful tipple!

2nd November 2014

very good

will be buying again

24th July 2014

Amazing

This is the third time I have bought this rum now. must say it is by far the best spiced rum I have drank. I have also introduced this rum to many friends now who also give positive reviews. brilliantly smooth and full of flavour. if you are new to rum or not I would definitely recommend it. anyone who would give this a bad review clearly knows nothing of rum. top quality, I certainly hope they never stop producing this rum!

18th May 2014

Good god no.

Sickly sweet and an overpowering taste of cloves. Tastes of anything but Rum. If anyone wants a bottle they can have mine. Awful, awful stuff.

9th March 2014

More than I hoped for

Just opened my first bottle of Rumbullion and I'm very happy. I wouldn't call it "rum", but I have no problem with anyone else calling it that. It has just enough sweetness to hide the 42.6% ABV bite, and enough flavor complexity to keep one entertained trying to identify everything. It seems about the same strength (or less) as Cointreau, for instance, but is actually stronger. Indeed a nice warming drink for winter (no need to add anything to what comes out of the bottle). I expect it to make an equally as nice mixer for a cool summer drink when the time comes.

20th January 2014

Hide the rum!

Very smooth rum, huge vanilla and spice flavours, nice on its own or with a mixer. Another winner from the Professor, Jack Sparrow would definitely approve!

3rd November 2013

CB

HI I GOT A SAMPLE OF THIS WITH MY THREE BOTTLES OF RUM I ORDED IT IS SO SMOOTH AND WARMING AND HAS A VERY LONG WARMING FINISH AND LASTS AND GOES DEEP TO THE CORE VERY NICE I MITE EVEN BUY A BOTTLE NOW

31st October 2013

Never had Rum before..

this was an impulse buy, and it was amazing.. Drank it neat and enjoyed every minute of it... and i also enjoyed dancing round the campfire after a few glasses of the stuff .. a true pirate.

16th September 2013

Needs coke!

Does it sh**! This stuff is so smooth, a little ice is all it needs.
The flavours are huge.
The obvious flavours to me are orange and cinnamon but it's a joy to search for the others.
This is one to enjoy with friends.
10/10.

50th Birthday Present

I've just retired from the Royal Navy after more than 32 years, this also coincides with my 50th B'day. My wife's family bought me a bottle of Rumbullion as a gift, Wow was also my reaction, a fitting gift for an old salt like me, delicious!

28th March 2013

A true taste of Heaven

Just had my first taste and I'm blown away. Normally drink Morgan's but that's history.superb neat, yet to try with ice and coke. Can't wait

12th February 2013

Fabulous

Hubby bought me a bottle for Christmas, it is divine, have to ration myself to small measures, it is far too delightful!

26th January 2013

Egg Nog

When my wife and I first opened the bottle she exclaimed, "Ohh, it smells like egg nog!" This is the only rum she is able to drink neat! Phenomenal rum!

3rd December 2012

Yum

It tastes of Christmas

8th November 2012

amazing

Drink neat. Don't ruin it. Way better than Kraken.

19th October 2012

Wow!!!

Just opened up my sample of Rumbullion and had a sip. My immediate reaction, literally, was "Wow!!!" Every other spiced rum that I've had is, by comparison, little better than lighter fluid. Rumbullion is wonderful just to sip, and works equally well with a couple of ice cubes and tonic at a 2:1 ratio. Despite the expense of shipping it to Florida, I'm buying a bottle!

10th September 2012

Oh so dangerous!

Just opened my bottle of this for the first time. I had bought it on the off chance (as the Pusser's 15yr was sold out). Must admit, I can't think of any time a gamble has paid off so very well. This is amongst the smoothest spirits I have ever encountered, so smooth you barely realise it is alcoholic. I recommend buying it immediately but drinking with caution, as it would be oh so easy to get carried away.

7th September 2012

Amazing!

This stuff is dangerously good, neat or with cola!

4th September 2012

Rich velvety syrup

This is more like a dark grappa . Possibly the best rum I have ever tasted. Anybody buying this will not be disappointed. I will certainly be ordering more!

1st June 2012

Just what the doctor ordered

The best rum I have tasted to date.

8th February 2012

This is a problem

Just so rich and drinkable. Absolutely delicious. So smooth it almost tastes like a fortified wine

6th January 2012

WOW

I'm not normally a lover of spiced rums, more of a Black Seal man, but I bought this for my sister and had to help her try it out obviously....
Initially I wasnt impressed, quite an odd smell from the bottle, but with loads of ice and some cola added it is one of the best I have tasted, very very smooth and very drinkable! Might need to buy one for myself...

23rd December 2011

yum yum

lovely and smooth over ice, a class act.
personally been looking for a pre-2010 sailor jerry alternative i'd like neat and this, while different in complexity, is a very very good tipple.

3rd December 2011

Beautiful winter warmer!!

Not normally a rum drinker I was persuaded to give this a try by the elaborate description and tasting... thank goodness for impulses, an absolute beauty with wonderful balance of flavours, sweet marmalade and a warming spice kick to add to the satisfaction. Will need another in time for christmas
