I don’t know if Lidl are ahead of the posse predicting a Rum revival – but they have another miniature selection I couldn’t resist.
Comprising of 4 x 40ml servings under the Ron Rumbero label – courtesy of Bimmerle KG, a German spirits producer & importer – with Cuban Rum being the source.
Ron Rumbero, Spiced Spirit, 37.5%
An attractively well balanced spiced rum offering. A bit too sweet for my liking – but a dark chocolate start contrasts with a gentle chilli led spicy finish.
Ron Rumbero, Cream Liqueur with Rum, 15%
An easy going creamy liqueur that provides an entertaining alternative to the whiskey derived offerings. Sweet, thick & creamy with a decent hit of rum on the finish too!
Ron Rumbero, 3 Años, 38%
Now this one surprised me! A definite vegetal funk on the nose. Slightly sweet yet smooth palate with a lovely flourish of spice on the finish. A great combination.
Ron Rumbero, 7 Años, 38%
Rich, warm & inviting. Slightly oaky. Smooth delivery. The dry oaky tannins are reminiscent of a good whiskey. Not bad.
A lovely little quartet of rums to whet your appetite.
When choosing my favourite I had a little surprise. Normally I’d go for the aged version – but with these – the wonderful balance of the funky start & gorgeously spicy finish of the 3 Años won out in this instance.
If only I could get a full size bottle for the shelf!

In my opinion it (Rumbero 7 years) is a f**g good rum!
I love its slighty sweet after taste.
Some suggest drinking it with coke but I like it with drinkably hot (black, e.g. Chinese or Earl Gray, not filtered but quality one) tea (some sugar, no lemon, no milk). Not IN the tea but some slips of tea, one slip of Rumbero. Marvellous.
My favorite rum is Angostura 1824 but this one is my runner-up, and looking at its price… Wow! A real good buy!
And thank you, Lidl!
(Well, in Hungary for decades of socialism we had some awkward tasting slush selled as “rum”, made from potato and some terrible aroma – they could have made it out of sugar beet molasses instead, we had a lot of it, even if no sugar cane.)

Thanks for the feedback & great you’re enjoying the rum!
Sugar beet was a popular crop in Ireland & have wondered what a rum like spirit made from it would taste like.
