3 White Rums for Under €20

Update!!! On January 4th 2022 Ireland implemented a Minimum Unit Pricing policy on alcohol. The minimum price for a 37.5% rum in 700ml bottles will now be around €21.

There’s some tasty bargains to be had for under €20 – if you’re prepared to explore.

Contrary to popular myths these supermarket offerings certainly don’t all taste the same – and nor are they short on flavour either!

Today’s comparison are 3 White Rums currently available from 3 large multiples across Ireland.

All are presented at 37.5% ABV with minimal information as regards distillery of origin or processes used.

2 (1 of 1)

Old Hopking from Aldi, ‘Bottled In Germany’, failed to excite me.

A floral nose – reminiscent of gin – put me off & the taste was rather bland too.

2 (1 of 1)-3

JG Kinsey from Dunnes, ‘Bottled In The UK’ with ‘Imported Caribbean Rum’ impressed.

A soft funky aroma followed through on the palate with a pleasing peppery finish.

2 (1 of 1)-4

Liberté from Lidl & ‘The Réunion’ proved enticing.

An impressive fruity funk flowed through both the nose & palate finishing of with a joyful prickliness.

For elegantly displaying the essence of rum, Liberté is my winner – with JG Kinsey a close 2nd.

I’d happily buy both again.

You don’t have to break the bank to enjoy a tasty rum!
