Very low proof almost a RTD
Notes: This rum is produced in England.
Appearance: Clear, no sediment whatsoever. On swirling, it leaves a thin, but tenacious clear coat on the inside of the glass, then nothing, slides right back to the bottom.
First Impression: Smells like a loaf of fresh baked banana bread – almost no hints of alcohol.
Taste: As advertised, it tastes like a ripe banana – and not much else. A bit too sweet for my personal taste.
Drinks: Check their web site ww.playersextreme.com for more ideas.
Cigars: Too sweet to have a cigar with unless this was in a mixed drink.
Final Thoughts: Not many. Very low proof rum that is almost a RTD in itself, or some other form of alcopop for the younger set. Not objectionable, but hardly exciting. Good for one of those umbrella drinks. Could also be a alternative for Galliano in some drinks.
Bottle:Clear tall rectangular bottle, like any number of other rum bottles. Applied clear label. Sky blue neck foil.
