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.

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.

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

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

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!

easily the best rum I have ever tasted and I have tried the lot !
5th November 2014
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
will be buying again

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!

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.

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.

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

31st October 2013
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
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.

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
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
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
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
It tastes of Christmas
8th November 2012
Drink neat. Don't ruin it. Way better than Kraken.
19th October 2012
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
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
This stuff is dangerously good, neat or with cola!
4th September 2012
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
The best rum I have tasted to date.
8th February 2012
Just so rich and drinkable. Absolutely delicious. So smooth it almost tastes like a fortified wine
6th January 2012
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
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
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
