worst rum

Recommended Posts

Worst rum i've tasted is STROH from Austria. Taste like a little bit petrol and nothing like rum. I have no idea how they market themselves as a rum ?

In Europe, they should not call it rum. We have laws that don't allow you to call anything rum that is not made of sugar cane molasses or the juice.

Its because of the adding of aroma's that they are not allowed to call it rum. They do buy light rum as a base by the way.

Only caramel is allowed to add to rum, nothing else according to the EU "rum" law.

Don't know it's name but vast quantites were consumed at a beach party in 1965, late on a balmy August evening, on a beach near Sandusky Ohio. I can still taste it. I might have gotten lucky. I don't remember. Nor did I remember the following morning.
