Review: Compass Distillers Spiced Rumb

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 17, 2020

is located in Halifax Nova Scotia, where Graham, Josh, and David began their distilling journey with a belief that they could create world-class spirits locally. Their artisan Craft Spirits are not imported, they are not blended with generic ingredients, nor are they pumped out of a factory; Rather, they are made from scratch, with locally sourced ingredients.

Compass Distilled Spiced Rumb is crafted with Crosby’s Molasses and Brown Sugar that is fermented and distilled in small batches. In Canada, Rum must be aged for one year in oak barrels. The Rumb which is produced by Compass Distillers is bottled without aging and so to differentiate the spirit from legal rumin Canada which must be aged for at least one full year, the product is called rumb.

Here is a link to my full review with tasting notes:

Review: Compass Distillers Spiced Rumb

“… the initial nose brings light butterscotch and vanilla aromas combined with scents and smells which seem to have an association with gin-like spices. I checked with the producer and learned that the rum is constructed from unaged rum distillate and spices which any gin enthusiast would recognize: cinnamon, clove, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla bean, orange, licorice root …”

Please enjoy my review which includes my suggested serving, The Flying Machine.

Chimo!

(Note: in the USA and many parts of the Caribbean there is no aging requirement for rum, and thus this product could be labeled as rum south of the border.)
