The Rum Slinger Subscription Box 003 (Govanhill): Review



This Box

This is like my little monthly treat to myself, I get to try new rums and good rums 🙂

Inside you have your 3 rums to try, plus an information leaflet to tell you about each rum and its tasting notes which is always a cool little read.

This Months Rums:

Rebellion Spiced Rum

ABV : 37.5%

Style : Spiced

I decided to start with this one, as I do like a spiced rum.

I poured this out and took a smell ohhhhhh I got some vanilla notes and something else I couldn’t put my finger on.

I took a sip and immediately transported to heaven this was amazing. It was sweet smooth and very moreish.

Part of me wishes I left this to last as it was very nice so much so I added this to my Amazon Wishlist 🙂

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Angostura (5yr) Rum

ABV : 40%

Style : Golden, 5yrs

I have not had Angostura for a very long time, so I was looking forward to this.

For the notes I got hints of caramel, and now time to taste.

Ohh this was a lovely rum and it brought back the memory of the last time I tried this. This is a nice sipping rum, one to sit back relax and enjoy, it had zero burn for me but had a love full bodied taste.

Plantation O.F.T.D Rum

ABV : 69%

Style : Overproof

This was a new one for me, and just looking at its ABV I knew this could either be strong with a burn, or strong but smooth so now to taste..

I took a sip and got lovely tastes of caramel and vanilla then BANG wow a strong after kick but it didnt last long and then a nice aftertaste

Wow this one really packs a punch, but a good punch.

Overall :

This was an interesting box this month, one for me was a massive favourite (the spiced rum) and one nearly blew my head off…well I am exaggerating just a bit.

Overall all were very nice, but that spiced rum was the clear winner for me in this months box, I am looking forward to seeing what is in the next one 🙂

If you like rum and fancy getting some each month delivered to your doorstep then check them out.
