The Rum Slinger Subscription Box 002 (Govanhill): Review



If you didn’t see my review of the first box click here

Another month and more new rum to try woohoo

This Months Box

This is a great size, and looks great on arrival.

Inside you have your 3 rums to try, plus an information leaflet to tell you about each rum and its tasting notes.

The Contents

As I mentioned a moment ago you get 3 rums to try, and this was box 001 and these were the ones in this months box.

The Rums

Diplomatico Selección de Familia

ABV : 43%

Style : Dark 12yrs

This one was one of my two favourites in this months box.

The nose was thick with toffee for me and a little vanilla. The tasting was smooth, not much burn, and had a nice aftertaste.

I have added a bottle of this to my Amazon wishlist as I really loved this one.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Santa Teresa Ron Selecto

ABV : 40%

Style : Dark, 10yrs

This had not a great nose for me, and that unfortunately continued with the taste.

It had a good burn to it, but overall I was disappointed with this one….but this monthly rum is great to learn what you like and try new rums.

Pampero Blanco

ABV : 37.5%

Style : White, 4yrs

I have not really tried many white rums, I think probably one but that was more than 6 years ago so I couldn’t remember what it was called or if I liked it.

The nose on this was so good, toffee and sugar came over for me….I started to get excited as that was a good start.

The taste ohhh so so good, it was smooth and had really nice flavours of toffee and brown sugar for me and ohhh so addictive.

I have added this one to my Amazon Wishlist to as I aim to buy this in the future.

Overall :

If you like rum or fancy trying new rums then check them out!

This box was much better than the first for me, as there were ones that I added to my Wishlist with the intention of purchasing in the future.

I think this is a great idea, as I get to try and learn about the rums each month. I can’t wait to see what they have planned for box number 3.
