The Rum Slinger Subscription Box 004 (Govanhill): Review



This Months Box

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

This Months Rums:

R.L. Seales

ABV : 46%

Style : Dark, 10 years

I started with this one, as it was the first one to grab my attention.

This was a new rum name for me, so I was excited to give it a try and see what I thought.

Firstly the smell I got slight hints of caramel, so it was off to a good start.

Taste-wise ohh this was a strong one, first I got a kick from the strength of this which disappeared fast. Then the flavours started to come through, a nice vanilla caramel subtle hint ending on a nice aftertaste.

This is a nice rum, and I could easily see me drinking this one again.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Plantation 3 Star

ABV : 41.2%

Style : White

I liked the white rum from the previous box, so I was interested to see how this one was.

I opened the bottle and poured it out, and took a smell.

This has a really lovely and sweet and light flavour, even the aftertaste was very nice.

I actually preferred this to the R.L Seales, as I think its sweeter which hits my tastebuds better.

I am now away to add this one to my Amazon Wish List.

Foursquare Spiced

ABV : 37.5%

Style : Spiced

This one I saved for last as I like a nice spiced rum, due to the sweetness.

This had a very subtle caramel sweet smell, now time to pour it.

Oh ok, this caught me off guard, with my first taste I was expecting a caramel or vanilla flavour which I didn’t get. For some reason, I got cinnamon and just a mix of spices aftertaste but I couldn’t pinpoint what ones.

There is zero burn, and its very very smooth.

This is a really nice rum, it’s not one I would say is your typical spiced rum but its one that I could easily enjoy again and again.

This is another one I am adding to my Amazon Wishlist.

Overall :

This was probably the most surprising box for me, as I really enjoyed the white rum and the spiced rum caught me off guard with its taste.

I have loved all these rums, and as you have seen even added a few to my wish list on Amazon.

Unfortunately this will be my last box review, as I am now watching the money as I am looking for a mortgage but please do subscribe and support these guys.

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