Best Bang For Your Spiced Rum Buck
December 21, 2018 § Leave a comment
A little while back I was sent a bottle of a Lemon Heart Blackpool Spiced Rum that is new to the market.
Over the following weeks I put it through its paces. I tasted it neat, with ice, and, of course, with egg nog.
You know what, that is not enough. It had been awhile since I had tasted the likes of Capt. Morgan, Bacardi Oak Heart, Sailor Jerry’s & Kraken. If I were to really review the Lemon Hart Blackpool, I had to see how it would fare against other items that have been long established in the market.
Here is the skinny. the Lemon Hart Blackpool brought some serious game. It had more character and a richer, more complex, flavour than the Captain Morgans, while working better in Egg Nog than the Kraken.
The Captain Morgans and Bacardi are lower in price ($25.49 & $22.99 respectively), but I found at $26.99, the Lemon Hart was a better buy. Treat yourself to the quality difference $4 makes.
If you have any questions please drop me a line.
Next: The BC Government recently announced that it would be conducting yet another review of the liquor industry. I will be penning a few thoughts shortly.
