Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown #24 – Pumpkin Face White Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 1, 2016

2016rum_howler_badgePumpkin Face Rum is a brand of rum being distributed in Canada by Pure Global Imports. The rum inside the cool looking pumpkin shaped bottles is marketed as an ‘ultra premium’ Dominican Rum, bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume. The brand is owned by, Itsko Imports Inc of Beverly Hills, California.

SAM_0980 Pumpkin Face DaiquiriAccording to the Pumpkin Face Website:

“The pumpkin is a symbol of celebration to people around the world. The origin of the pumpkin can be traced to North American seeds dating back to 7000 BC. The word pumpkin comes from the word “pepon”, which is Greek for “large melon” and later changed by American colonists to “pumpkin”. Colonists would often slice off the pumpkin top, remove the seeds, and fill it with cream, honey, eggs and spices. They cooked the pumpkin in hot ashes until blackened then enjoyed its contents.”

Here is a link to the review of the Number 24 spirit on my Rum Howler 2016 Top 50 Mixing Rums Countdown:

#24 – Pumpkin Face White Rum

“… I began with a Daiquiri, and I was impressed enough to build another. The lightly sweet characteristic of the rum melded beautifully with the lime resulting in a cocktail which contained whispers of butterscotch sweetness within a tart citric spiciness. I moved on to a Cuba Libre’ next, and was similarly impressed. Again it was that faint butterscotch flavour which seemed to allow the rum to meld with the cola bringing great enjoyment to the bar drink …”
