Project #173 Banana Rum

Project #173 Banana Rum Bottling Note

The combo of rum and banana is well-established and generally considered to be excellent. Just think of all those fancy puddings that include the both of them in one form or another. Delicious! So, what if one excellent spirit brought them together (the rum and banana, not the various different puddings – though that idea is now probably on a list somewhere)? Project #173 Banana Rum is the answer! With a core of good quality rum and oodles of authentic banana notes for company, this expression will be immensely helpful when it comes to cocktails. Plus, you don't have to deal with banana peels, so no chance of any slapstick pratfalls.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Banana, obvs, but clean, ripe banana rather than yucky foam banana. The high, ripe esters (flavour molecules) from the rum blend seamlessly with the banana acting as a supercharger to the base flavour rather than an unwelcome intrusion. A lick of spice on the tail end provides intrigue.

Palate Sweet, but not cloying – banana flavour is intense but doesn't overstep the mark – it's still clear that there is good liquid in the mix. Dark caramelised notes lead into the finish.

Finish Long, with the resurgence of the caramelised goodness, and the high esters continue to play for a decent length of time.

Overall A well-balanced, and considered rum. Epic in a Banana Daiquiri, but equally at home in any number of tiki drinks where it provides a huge lift to the natural esters of the rum.

Reviews for Project #173 Banana Rum
Smells good taste
picked this up around black friday - it smells very banana but left me disappointed as not very banana in taste, the base rum isn't bad but there are better project 173 rums in my opinion and better banana rums to pick from!

This is my first step into rum and what a first step. Project 173 was recommended so have it a go and the Banana Rum stood out. It doesn’t disappoint. Ripe banana with a hint of toffee on the nose. Subtle but rich banana taste and a sweetness that’s holds.

Bought it my hubby and it was disappointing.
The smell of it from the bottle smells a bit like caramel/toffee.
The taste is very subtle, both of us couldn't taste any banana at all. I personally could taste a slight bit of toffee but nothing major. It was just a burning sensation with very little taste.
The cherry one is great and thought to try this but it's highly disappointing.

Happiness in a bottle
Project 173 rums represent sheer happiness. At 42% ABV I am a happy camper! This banana rum is very smooth.
The bottle is only 50 cl - needs to be bigger. It disappears too quickly!!

Absolutely lethal stuff, it arrived on the morning of the day after we ordered it and was gone by the afternoon of that same day, step carefully round this one guys, its habit forming :D
