Project #173 Orange

Orange has been added as a flavour to all kinds of things to make them taste even better, from chocolate to soda. Heck, for a period in the noughties, orange even made Wednesdays better. Project #173, however, made the sensible call that rum would be a good partner in lime. Wait, wrong fruit. It's the sweet, bright, and slightly sharp taste of natural orange flavouring that has been added to a base of high-quality rum here. All that citrus shines in its pretty bargain bottling, but will also make a cracking Daiquiri or Mai Tai.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Like homemade marmalade, the kind you'd proudly pop in a fancy jar and bring to a farmer's market. The orange is rich and dark, as well being beautifully supported by toffee, dark chocolate, and nutmeg.

Palate Juicy orange is joined by a delicate sweet fruitiness of peaches and a little dried fruit, as well as five spice, molasses, and gingerbread.

Finish Sweet and a little sticky with more molasses. Wrapped around an orange like a strange fairground treat.

Overall This is a much more sophisticated, rich, and rewarding style of orange-flavoured spirit than you might be used to. Let it pleasantly surprise you.

Reviews for Project #173 Orange Rum
Gorgeous! Almost too good!
This is GORGEOUS. My wife and I have had to push the bottle to the back of the cupboard or it wouldn't last. Will definitely need a re-order.

It has a lovely orange flavour, without being too sweet, that is mixed a lovely warm golden rum base. Imagine a combination of a good golden rum like Havana Club or Diplomatico and Quantro. It avoids being too sweet or syrupy. Wonderful with a ginger and lime mixer, or just a firey ginger beer.... also just great on the rocks.
