Horizon Black [Hole] Rum

Is there anything on the other side of a black hole, or are they just galactic alligators gobbling up anything that dares come near them? You may think that question is a bit much for a spirits retailer, but this is the kind of thing that comes to mind when drinks like Horizon Black [Hole] Spiced Rum appear! It's a lip-smacking black spiced rum built around a blend of Caribbean rums, and flavoured with black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, orange (both sweet and Curaçao), star anise and vanilla. To say the flavour is "out of this world" feels a bit too... Well, obvious, so we'll simply say that its flavour profile is particularly booming indeed. The label features the first ever image of a black hole from the Event Horizon Telescope, which is rad and reminds us that there are things out in space chomping away at bits of universe (also cool).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Oof - that’s intense! Curaçao, red cola cubes, stewed dark fruits and toasted cardamom and clove combine with a huge amount of vanilla initially. There’s dark chocolate, rich molasses, star anise and a hint of spent fireworks underneath.

Palate Ground ginger, cinnamon and an earthy twist of black pepper add spice at the forefront, which is joined by notes of root beer, treacle, Seville orange marmalade and more vanilla, as well as black fruits, liquorice and charred oak.

Finish It’s a full-bodied finish, with dark molasses, baking spice and hints of marzipan and espresso.

Overall This one certainly packs a punch. It’s dark, delicious and the spices are really well-integrated.

Absolutely huge flavour - sweetness is balanced perfectly with the spicing - makes an amazing base fo Spiced Daiquiries.

Mmmmm time for dessert!
All the tasting notes are bang on the money, not to everyone's taste but pair it up with some pressed apple juice and boom! Apple Strudel 😋😋 Also works well as the base for Dark n Sorry.

Heavily spiced and maybe too sweet.
My initial reaction was that this Rum was way too sweet and heavily over-spiced. However, after a glass or two, I began to appreciate it far more and found myself enjoying it.

Collecting rums is my hobby, but I generally avoid spiced rum with the possible exception of Rumbullion. That is possibly why I initially thought this Rum was over-spiced. I still feel that it is a little too sweet.

As I only take my Rum neat, I have no idea how this might perform in cocktails.

Don’t recommend
Wayyyyyy too sweet. I don’t know where this trend has come from of sweetening Rum to the 10th degree. It just coats the flavour of the spirit which in itself is quite harsh. Not a fan.

Dark, spicy, exotic rum
MoM tasting notes on the nose spot on, with cola cubes really standing out. Tasting notes I would add the cardamom lingers through. Lots of different flavours and a treat to unpack and isolate them, with a glass or two just to make sure. Well worth a look into the horizon of this black hole

Must try for any Rum fan. Tasting notes as spot on
Recommended to us and now our favourite rum. Its a lovely rich rum and has a much stronger flavour profile than many other Dark runs I've tried. It smells as good as it tastes. I can taste the molasses straight away followed by coffee and a slight liquorice taste at the end and a little sweet vanilla. Cardamon is the main spice I can taste but it's not overpowering; the spices are well balanced. It is rich, smooth and very easy drinking and I would recommend to any Rum fan. The masters of malt tasting notes has this spot on. For the price it's an amazing Rum and easily trump's bottles I've paid double for. Go on, try it!!

Powerful taste
OMG i though i'd been sideswiped by a spice truck after the first mouthful and i loved it. If you will be drinking several spirits during the session, then try this one last, as it's powerful and tasty all right with a lingering taste to enjoy.

Mild mannered with a hidden agenda
Easy drinking sweet rum , coke and ice it's taste is on the kraken and black magic level. It has a thick molasses dark colour and taste. BEST BIT is when the drink catches up with you and takes over. A true grog for the pirate if you are a kraken fan

Deliciously intense
Super-intense and very full-bodied. A massively flavoured rum with a really nice quality label.
