Spice Hunter

Inspired by the story of 18th century botanist/spice smuggler Pierre Poivre, Spice Hunter is a fittingly cockle-warming spiced rum featuring notes of ginger, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and pepper. Built around a Mauritian rum, 13 spices are added in to the mix, resulting in a powerful flavour profile which we reckon will pair excellent with cola or ginger ale.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Fresh ginger initially, then long pepper, cardamon and heaps of aromatic cloves. More spice comes in the form of green peppercorns, allspice and a couple of drying dashes of nutmeg and pimento before cinnamon pastries, cola cubes and vanilla pods add a balanced sweetness. A hint of spent firework adds something interesting underneath.

Palate More cinnamon, clove and an earthy twist of black pepper, then root beer, gingerbread and mulled fruit.

Finish Short and delicately sweet, with earthy and dry spice lingering underneath.

Reviews for Spice Hunter
Fantastic for Xmas Cakes
As the other reviews say, this is heavily spiced and not too sweet.
Brilliant if you are soaking dried fruit for a long time or boiling the fruit in for a last minute cake.
The flavour endures after cooking. But do add the normal Xmas cake spices as well.

Very spicy
I know it sounds obvious but this is incredibly spicy. Very full on with cloves and cinnamon. One for mixing rather drinking straight. You can taste the spices through the mixer properly rather than just getting a generic alcohol boost. A good addition to cocktails and punches.

All spice and no rum
Not well balanced, the base rum tastes a little watery, leaving nothing for the spice to blend into, instead, allows the spice flavour to overpower the rum.

No doubting that it's boldly spiced
Possibly the most strongly spiced rum on the market. BIG hits of clove and ginger. Whatever you choose to mix this with, you're not going to lose the flavour of this rum.

Warming from the inside out, it makes a nice change to the other bland by comparison spiced rums on the market that all follow the same format (a bit of vanilla, maybe ginger, bit of nutmeg etc etc). Plays well in tiki drinks (try 50ml this, 30ml pineapple juice, 30ml lemon juice, 25ml orgeat, 2 dash angostura).

It would be a lie to say that everyone will enjoy this, but if like me, you like your flavours strong and you're getting bored of all the, quite frankly, derivative spiced rums on the market, give it a go. It's great value at £23

Cheap and nasty, all the wrong ingredients.
No. This tastes nasty. I'm a spiced rum veteran and was looking forward to trying this but was very disappointed. It tastes like someone poured me a sailor jerry but dumped a ton of pot pouri in it for a laugh. Try ALAMEA instead, now that is a tasty rum. (Or Rumbullion obviously).
