Tiki Lovers Dark Rum 700ml
The folks behind The Bitter Truth bitters range have been busy making rum, and this here is Tiki Lovers Dark Rum. It sees a blend of rums from Hampton Estate and Foursquare along with some rums from Trinidad and Guyana. This one weighs in at 57% ABV, so this fairly punchy rum would do well in a… Punch. Obviously.
Launched in 2011 by the team behind The Bitter Truth bitters and liqueurs, this overproof dark rum is made from a blend of various rums from the Caribbean. These include unaged pot still rums from Jamaica’s Hampden Estate and aged rum from Barbados’ Foursquare Distillery. In addition, aged Trinidadian rum is included as well as unaged column still rums from Trinidad and Guyana. It’s bottled at 57% ABV.
