I think it is the time I start expanding my horizons....with my rum selection. I am a fan of Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum and Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum. They are good quality rums at a reasonable price. But what about something more expensive? Something higher grade? I recently saw Richland Rum for sale and decided to pick up a bottle.
Richland Rum is clearly a sipping rum and at $57 a bottle, you may want to saver each sip. My initial impression was a smooth rum with a good amount of flavor to it. The flavor did disappear soon. That was a bit of a disappointment as I personally, I like to savor the spices of my rum for a while.
Richland Rum is a good choice if you want to have a good sipping rum with a strong initial taste.
Pro's: Overall good flavor, smooth. Good sipping rum. Chill first. I tried it warm in my video.
Con's: No prolonged after taste. Not something I would use with a typical Coke & Rum.
Would Island Jay suggest it? Yes, if you want a higher end rum to sip on.
Price Paid: $57
