Continuing my miniature rum exploration are 2 previously unknown offerings.
Cut To The Smoke, 40%
Cut Rum are distributed by ProofDrinks in the UK & To The Smoke claims to be the first smokey rum on the market.
I had to give it a go!
Rich dark brown appearance. Burnt toffee kind of nose. Enticing!
Soft, easy & smooth. Develops a lovely umami meatiness – like a honey glazed roast topped with spicy seasoning.
An entertaining little number!
Pott Rum 40, 40%
Pott Rum 40 has German writing on the label & I’m assuming originates from a ‘rumhandelshaus’ there.
Lighter shade of brown. Soft hint of funk.
A luxurious mouth coating envelops the palate in dark molassey depth topped off with gentle spice & fruity funk.
This duo are exemplars for the world trade in rum.
You may not know the distillery of origin, country or even marks used in the make up of these rums – but goodness – they are both highly enjoyable drinking experiences.
I’d gladly explore other offerings from both the Cut & Pott Rum ranges!
