Top 10 White Rums Countdown # 7 – Pumpkin Face White Rum
Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 28, 2013
Sometimes my best laid plans go asunder. Such was the case after I thought I had completed my list of Top 10 – White Rums in late August of this year. About a month later, (about four weeks before my countdown was to begin publishing) I received samples of the “Ultra-Premium” Pumpkin Face Rums. As soon as I sampled the Pumpkin Face White Rum, I knew I had a problem, as this rum absolutely deserved to be considered as a contender in this series.
So I did the only thing I could, I brought my Panel of Judges over, and I made some Daiquiris and some Mojitos and we proceeded to judge this rum as if it was part of the original competition. When the scores were tallied, the result was that the Pumpkin Face White Rum fell into the number 7 slot of the Best White Rums in the World (that I have tasted)!
Here is a link to my recently published review:
“… As I nosed the rum, mild impressions of banana, orange zest, and faint grassy vegetal notes rose into the breezes. There were also a few light traces of cotton candy, wisps of mint, and hints of anise-like licorice scents …”
The Pumpkin Face White Rum is not only a very good cocktail rum, it is also quite enjoyable as a sipper; which frankly, is quite unusual in the white rum category!
