Five Hundred Cuts Rum

The distilling arm of BrewDog is staying very busy, and this is another tasty example of the fruits of its labour - Five Hundred Cuts Botanical Rum! The spirit is distilled from sugar cane molasses, fermented with red wine yeast and rum yeast for seven days, and then double pot distilled. Afterwards, botanicals join the party, with the likes of orange peel, lavender, schezuan peppercorns and cardamom being re-distilled in the spirit, while cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, tonka bean, ginger, and allspice, are steeped in the spirit for 14 hours. The two spirits are blended and finished off with a touch of muscovado sugar.

The Five Hundred Cuts name is inspired by Elizabeth Blackwell, who, in the 18th century, created the most comprehensive herbal (a text of plant illustrations and descriptions) of plant engravings (or 'cuts') at the time. 500 of them, in fact. Not only was it sizeable, it was also one of the first herbals to show the plants drawn accurately!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Coca-cola, dark chocolate, caramel combine with more aromatic notes like ginger, orange peel and cloves.

Palate Highly aromatic, almost menthol, with assertive cardamom leading balanced by rich dark sugar.

Finish Fresh and herbal, like upmarket cold cure.

Reviews for Five Hundred Cuts Botanical Rum
A perfect spiced rum
My favorite spiced rum by far - full of complex notes, smooth and well priced - what's not to like?
Perfect with fiery ginger beer and a slice of lime

Rum or Wine?
Not sure if it's a bad batch, but all I can taste and smell is the red wine. Not pleasant.

Sweet and in a glass.
Whoever left the review below obviously has no taste buds. This rum is full of flavour, heavy on the cinnamon and cloves lending it a ‘christmas’ effect. Unlike any other rum I have tried. Slightly sweet but not too much however not for supping on all night..just a couple. A very nice rum, for those who prefer a lighter or spiced rum.

Lovely flavour, best smell ever, great with pressed lemonade. The rum tastes fairly strong and isn’t as smooth as some others are, but the flavours are brilliant and vibrant with lots or raisiny flavour as well as the smell. Really love this rum well worth £30

Very Impressive
I have never been impressed by a flavoured and spiced rum before. This has broken the seal. Very impressive palette of flavours. Carrot cake, cinnamon and caramel develop into a sweet, warming, almost brandy like raisin flavour. Really fantastic stuff straight. Excited to try this with some of my favourite mixers

Unique, not sure on the best mixer yet
This wasn't one I enjoyed sipping neat but when served with Fritz Cola in Brewdog's own bar this was actually really nice. I can't say I've had a rum with unique flavours like this. Very fruity, but I've yet to decide what is the best mixer to have with it.

This is currently my favourite rum, I have to hold back of re-ordering after every bottle... why??? ;) Absolutely love this stuff and the customer service is outstanding.
