We travel across Canada to find the Number 9 White Rum on the Rum Howler Countdown List.
Newfoundlander’s Rum, made a splash about four years ago with a new style and presentation that rejected the pirated clichés of the rum marketing gurus, and instead embraced the heritage of Newfoundland’s rocky shores and its naval tradition. Stunning artwork from Canadian artist David Blackwood adorned the labels in narrative designs that told a story of the proud Newfoundland people who live their lives near and on the sea. It is a life bound by tragedy and hope.
Newfoundlander’s Rum is a blend of 3 aged Guyanese white rums, a 2-year-old, a 5-year-old, and a 7-year-old rum. The blended rum is shipped to Newfoundland in stainless steel tankers where it is bottled and distributed by NLC.
Here is a link to my recently revised review of Newfoundlander’s Rum:
“… The rum exhibits a pleasant soft texture with light oily feeling in the mouth. The light caramel flavour of the rum is firm, and I taste no bitter off-notes. There is a tinge of alcohol bite which tastes slightly sharp, but I also taste the light candy flavours I noticed in the nose and an every so soft progression of mint. Vanilla notes are present, as is a light almond flavour …”
This white rum really mixes well and boosts my cocktails to a higher form!
