An infamous Cornish smuggler, John Carter was called The King of Prussia as he and his family ran a notorious and successful smuggling trade around the coast of Penzance. From his protected haven (Prussia Cove), Carter’s gang held sway over the smugglers’ trade, taking advantage of the nooks and crannies of the rugged coast.
Tasting Notes & Pairing Suggestions by @diaryofarumdrinker
|Appearance||Slightly darker in colour but still a light rum|
|Nose||Strong coffee is the first aroma to come through, this is closely followed by peppercorn and citrus with hints of vanilla to finish.|
|Taste sipping neat||Again coffee is the first thing you get from this rum. You then pick up the taste of spice and a nutty flavour. After the initial hit starts to fade you pick up the vanilla to bring you a sweeter note. The finish brings all the flavours together to leave a smooth taste, the coffee lingers the longest on the tongue.|
|Length||Medium but with each flavour having their moment on the taste buds.|
- Ginger ale – tones down the coffee to bring out more of the spice in the rum; you can pick out more of the nutmeg when mixed this way.
- Diet Coke – makes the rum a lot sweeter, making the vanilla taste become more prominent.
A well-balanced drink with the coffee present but not overpowering, allowing the other flavours to come out. For the coffee lovers: why not pair it with a ginger ale to really experience the flavour?
