Denizen Merchant`s Reserve Rum

Denizen Merchants Reserve Rum

The first time encountered Denizen rum i was very pleased with it`s flavor, it was their white rum i tried and reviewed. Denizen rums are blends of rum from the Caribbean selected by master blenders in Amsterdam who have been handcrafting small-batch Caribbean style rums dating back to the early 1700s, when the Netherlands colonized much of the Caribbean.

Now Citizen Spirits have followed up with an aged rum that is a blend of aged plummer style pot still rum from Jamaica and also are component of Rhum Grande Arome from the Le Galion S.A.E.M distillery in Martinique.

60% of this rum has been aged 8 years in small used American oak bourbon barrels.  The Jamaican rums used in this blend come from Worthy Park, Hampden, New Yarmouth, and Clarendon. Most of the aged rum comes from Worthy Park Distillery.

The rums used in the blend were fermented using slow working yeasts in order to extend the fermentation time and allow the high ester flavor compounds to fully develop – a very important step in the rum making process.

One of the reasons they chosed to include the molasses based rhum grande arome in the blend and not the more traditional rhum agricole from Martinique is because when they checked in with rum cocktail historians during the development process – they were told that Trader Vic likely blended this type of rum from Martinique with the 17 year Wray and Nephew in his original Mai Tai formula because it was cheapest rum available from Martinique at the time.

Having learned this, they tried to come up with a historically accurate classic amber rum that is unapologetically funky and would have made Trader Vic proud. The fact that it has been aged 8 years also makes it a fine sipping rum despite it being slightly higher proof at 43% ABV.

Denizen Merchant’s Reserve should be available in the US early April. Citizen Spirits will launch it in New York City and San Francisco initially and then expand to additional markets.

So i go straight to the Mai Tai eh?

This is a rum which obviously is partly designed for making great Mai Tais but of course not only – but also to be sipped neat and make other cocktails with – and flavorless cocktails you won`t get with it.

What a shame i haven`t had any chance to try the old JWray 17 year….which is a long time dream of mine, so therefore i cannot compare with it, but i can compare with other Mai Tais i`ve had with great rums and see how this rum stand up in comparison and i have a feeling it will do very well.

Also the Denizen Merchant’s Reserve earned a score of 94 at the 2014 Ultimate Spirits Challenge and was recognized as a finalist. Scoring 94 points is equivalent to “Excellent and highly recommended”

Let´s taste it.

Nose – It`s a fruity nose with a bit of citrus and apricot, a hint of wood, very fresh.

Mouth – The same fruitness is there and it has a warm spicy finish. A hint of sugarcane, warm caramel, ripe tropical fruit, dried banana, apricot, wood.

My impression – This is a warm, funky and flavorful rum, not much alcohol burn, it´s smooth enough to sip and flavorful enough to mix tiki drinks with, at the same time it`s great for classic rum drinks as well. Fruity and spicy!

I bet it`s good to drizzle over ice cream too…or use in baked papaya with butter, vanilla and demerara sugar.

The first drink i wanted to make with this rum is the PYT swizzle from Rumba Seattle, (a bar and Caribbean restaurant in Seattle) and a place where they make some extraordinary cocktails, actually everything they make at that place looks tasty, i hope i can visit some day.

The PYT swizzle first catched my attention on instagram where i saw pictures of it after it won the Island Imbibe competition in august 2013. I thought it looked so tasty….so here`s a version of it with Denizen Merchant`s Reserve and again, i regret not having any mint!

PYT SWIZZLE

Denizen PYT swizzle

2.5 oz Denizen Merchant`s reserve rum

0.75 oz fresh lime juice

0.5 oz passionfruit syrup

0.25 oz falernum

Glass: Libbey Everest hi ball

Top with a heavy doze of angostura and peychaud`s bitters

Swizzle!

But mint or not, with this rum the swizzle turned out nice and spicy!

The next drink is the quintessential test cocktail when you wanna evaluate a rum in cocktails, due to it`s simplicity and way of letting the rum shine through in such a way that you cannot make a good one with a bad rum – the classic daiquiri.

MERCHANT`S DAIQUIRI

Denizen Merchant´s daiquiti IG

2 oz Denizen Merchant`s Reserve

0.75 oz fresh lime juice

0.5 oz demerara sugar syrup

Glass: Libbey SPKSY

And yes, it pass the test! this rum makes a very nice and somewhat spicy daiquiri!

And finally…the Queen of Tiki Drinks…(and the Zombie is the King:-)

MAI TAI

Denizen Mai Tai

2 oz Denizen Merchant`s Reserve rum

1 oz fresh lime juice (add the spent lime shell to shaker and later, in the glass)

0.5 oz orgeat

0.25 oz Combier triple sec

Shake all ingredients and garnish with mint – or if you don`t have mint, add the spent lime shell and a sherry into the glass.

Serve in rocks glass with crushed ice.

Yep, it definitely makes a great Mai Tai, the kind that gives that extra yummy after taste, provided you use good quality mixing products throughout. Of course i did the Trader Vic´s Mai tai. The only thing i regret is that i was out of mint but instead i just used the spent lime shell and a sherry.

To wrap it up – Denizen Merchant`s Reserve is very good, flavorful and i warmly recommend anyone to try this rum!

Real McCoy 5 year old Rum – A Premium Rum with Interesting History

Real McCoy bottle

Here´s a very interesting rum produced by the legendary Foursquare distillery that have an interesting and colorful history.

It´s an authentic, handcrafted excellent sipping rum from Barbados bringing that genuine Bajan flavor to your glass.

The Real McCoy rum is based on the story of  William “Bill” McCoy, the pioneer rum runner of the prohibition era, who fueled the Roaring Twenties by delivering over 2 million bottles of rum to the speakeasies of New York back in 1920.

McCoy took pride in the fact that he never paid a cent to organized crime, politicians, or law enforcement for protection and unlike many others that illegally produced and smuggled alcohol for consumption during prohibition, McCoy sold his merchandise unadulterated, uncut and clean,

He never came ashore but instead anchored 3 miles off-shore, which back then was international waters, acting as a floating liquor store within sight of the metropolis of New York.

People went out to McCoy, bought the rum and returned hoping to escape the Coast Guard on the way back in.

An interesting fact about him is that he himself never touched alcohol…(!)

It’s a great story and the rum absolutely lives up to the name. It’s only been in the US for a few months, but it has already received the following accolades:

Silver Medal – San Fransisco World Spirits Competition
“Best in Category”, Aged Rum – The American Distilling Institute
Score 91 – The Tasting Panel Magazine, Anthony Dias Blue
Score 92 – The Ultimate Spirits Challenge, F. Paul Pacult

While researching the life and legend of William McCoy, a Connecticut man became interested in developing a rum in remembrance of McCoy.

So he contracted Richard Seale of Four Square distillery in Barbados, to craft an authentic rum blend and the final result the Real McCoy Rum is nothing but excellent!

Now i sit here with a bottle of the Real McCoy rum – aged for 5 years in American oak bourbon barrels. It´s a  blend of column and pot still rum and what i have here is plain good old-fashioned rum!

I like that…

This is a sipping rum but i`m gonna make a few cocktails with it too – real good quality rums makes real good quality cocktails too – provided that you carefully chose what to mix the rum with. Don´t waste the drinks with ready-made commercial or chemical mixers! use fresh!

 Nose

In the nose i find dried tropical fruits, baked spices, vanilla, caramel and honey – it´s very pleasant…a promising hint of what to come…

The taste

To me it has a distinct aroma of a well aged rum with hints of oak, vanilla, dried tropical fruit, sugarcane and maybe of dried orange peel. It`s a bit on the dry side but has some sweetness. It`s a warm welcoming rum.

The rum also have a long pleasant finish.

I see an image of someone sitting in a comfy sofa in front of a fire in the fall with a sipping glass in hand – or someone on the porch watching a tropical island sunset…

My final conclusion is that i like this rum- it´s of excellent quality but i didn`t expect anything less, seeing to where it´s coming from.

Cocktails

I made two daiquiris with it, one classic with just rum, sugarcane syrup and fresh lime and another with chocolate bitters and pineapple gomme syrup, both were very good.

Then i made a tropical tiki style drink with pineapple juice and coffee that turned out spicy and tasty.

The Real McCoy Rum is excellent for sipping and can be used in classic cocktails as well as well crafted tiki drinks but should not be wasted in drinks like rum and coke.

Shamrock Daiquiri

Happy St Patrick´s Day!

Not all St Patty`s cocktails are Irish whiskey and you don`t need to be Irish to celebrate st Patrick´s Day! be Irish for a day and enjoy some good “green” cocktails or some Irish beer!

I have made a daiquiri with a good flavorful white rum, lime and sugar and a little green chartreuse for a herbal kick and a dash green curacao for color. The drink is actually not that dark green, it´just looks very dark in the picture. The drink has a grassy green color or shamrock green, hence the name.

Shamrock DaIquiri

2 oz white rum – i used Denizen rum

0.75 oz fresh lime juice

0.5 0z sugarcane syrup

0.25 oz green curacao

0.25 oz green chartreuse

Shake with ice and train into a chilled coupe with a green sugar rim and garnish with something appropriate for St Patrick´s Day.

This drink tastes like a classic daiquiri with a herbal and citrusy touch.

And what would St Patty`s Day be without a couple of Irish blessings?

May good luck be with you Wherever you go , And your blessing outnumber the shamrocks that grow.

May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

May neighbours respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.

Bad Dog Bar Craft Cocktail Bitters

I love cocktail bitters! these little drops that can change a cocktail and take it to a different level, the salt and pepper of the drink!

I had the pleasure of meeting Daniel from Bad Dog Bar Craft at this year´s Tales and he handed me two bottles of bitters to try out – the “Fire and Damnation” and “Sarsaparilla Dry”. The first name tells us there´s some heat in it…

Bad Dog Bar Craft are located in Austin, Texas and makes small batch handcrafted cocktail bitters.

Fire and Damnation

This bitter is the Bad Dog`s take on a historical recipe found in “The Gentlemen’s Companion” by Charles Baker Jr in 1939.

It contains habanero extract, black tea, subtle smoke, green vegetal pepper and molasses.

I was plesantly surprised though at the fresh habanero taste….and then you get hit by smoke…

Anyone who eats habanero and it`s close cousin scotch bonnet knows these chilies does have a very fresh fruitiness that is almost intoxicating and very addictive…i just love that flavor.

Habanero is a very hot chile and these bitters are hot, here´s enough with one drop or two and it adds a new dimension to classical drinks and of course goes just perfect with tequila.

Sarsaparilla Dry

This one is woody and “rooty” or – old fashioned root beer flavor but bitter and dry. Flavor components in it are root beer, herbal tannins and sarsaparilla.

Suggested Use: Work beautifully in stirred drinks and pairs well with sweet Italian vermouth, armagnac, whiskey, gin, dark rum.

Volcanic Daiquiri

2 oz white rum ( i would recommend Plantation 3 Stars or Denizen rum)

0.75 oz fresh lime juice

0.5 oz sugarcane syrup

2 dash Fire and Damnation bitters

The daiquiri is as you know if you read this blog one of my absolute favorite cocktails and i have lost count on how many variations i`ve made and this is one more – with a hot bite!

The hint of habanero in this cocktail…so goood…

Blood, Sand and Fire

1.25 oz Tequila reposado
3/4 oz Cherry Brandy (Cherry Heering)
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
3/4 oz Orange Juice
1 dash Fire and Damnation bitters

Shake together ina shaker with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail coupe and add a float of tequila at the top.

Oh how i love the Blood and Sand cocktail…and this spicy version takes it to another level!

Spiced Winchester

1 oz Haymen’s Old Tom gin
1 oz Martin Miller’s Westbourne Strength gin
1 oz Tanqueray dry gin
¾ oz lime juice
¾ oz grapefruit juice
¾ oz St. Germain
½ oz grenadine
¼ oz ginger syrup
1 healthy dash Sarsaparilla Dry bitters
Shake with ice and strain in to a crushed-ice filled Tiki mug.

The Winchester is a tiki drink with 3 different gins and was created by Brian Miller and named after Angus Winchester.

The only change in the recipe is that the heavy dose of angostura bitters is replaced with sarsaparilla bitters.

Denizen Rum – A Light Rum with Bold Flavor

This is one of the rums that i tried at the Rum session at the Tales of the Cocktail that stayed with me – so i was very happy to receive a sample now for review. When you try many rums and spirits at occasions like the Tales you tend to get numb after a while….there´s simply too much at the same time.

That`s why it´s so important to take notes all the time because you will forget…but then there`s always a few that just sticks to your mind – because they stood out from the rest – they were THAT good…and i found Denizen to be one of those i really liked.

According to the label, Denizen is a product of Trinidad and Tobago but it is actually blended in Europe before being imported and bottled in the US by Citizen Spirits, LLCs.

Hidden away in Amsterdam, exist the last practitioners of alchemy in the world. With the power to transform the common into something…magical. And they’ve been doing it secretly since the 1700s, these master blenders of rum.

We asked them to free the flavor of rum long distilled out by mass producers. So they went to Trinidad and hand-selected barrels of white rum to be aged for five achingly long years.

Then to Jamaica, to choose 15 types of the finest pot still rum. Finally, back to Amsterdam, where they drew on centuries of experience, and their liberated spirit, to create the one rum without the blandness of most white rums or the overpowering taste of dark rums.

A soulful rum without boundaries. For cocktails with integrity. For the denizens of the world. Source – Rum For All website

What gives this rum it´s punch is the addition of Jamaican potstill to the blend – so it is light aged Trinidad rum blended with funky Jamaican pot still adding a heavy rum flavor and viscous mouthfeel.

The first you feel is a sweet fruit note with lots of fruit…then wood, dry & sweet, with layered flavors, it´s complex and has that funky note from the Jamaican rum.

As always when i deal with these types of flavorful white rums i want to try it in a daiquiri – one of my favorite cocktails…and it´s such a perfect drink to evaluate the rum as mixed in a drink since this cocktail is so “clean” – just rum, sugar and lime. And of course i wasn`t disappointed, it makes an excellent daiquiri with all the fruity notes and Jamaican funk.

Denizen rum is bottled at 40% ABV or 80 proof.

After i made a regular daiquiri to try the rum in i made this one which is very tasty:

Maui Daquiri

1/2 oz St. Germain
2.0 oz Denizen Rum
1 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz fresh lime juice

Pour all ingredients into a shaker and shake with ice, and serve up in a cocktail glass. Garnish with a brown sugar rim.

Coconaut Grove Cocktail (Beachbum Berry Remixed)

0.5 oz Lopez coconut cream
0.5 oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
2.0 oz Denizen Rum
1 oz fresh lime juice
8 oz crushed ice

Put everything in a blender and blend for 60 sec or until smooth.

Garnish with cherry, lemon wedge, coconut flakes and cinnamon dust.

Yummy!

Pago Pago Cocktail (Remixed)

1/2 oz green Chartreuse
1.5 oz Denizen Rum
0.25 oz white creme de cacao
0,5 oz fresh lime juice
3 squares of fresh pineapple

Place everything except rum in a cocktail shaker and muddle thoroughly. Add rum and ice cubes. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with lime or lemon peel and cherry. i also dusted some grated nutmeg and cinnamon on top of the ice to make it even nicer. Also in used crushed ice in this.

Grilled Pineapple Curacao Daiquiri

Grilled pineapple syrup and dark rum….mix that together with a squeeze of fresh lime – and you get a Pineapple Curacao Daiquiri.

Here´s a tropical libation from St Croix in the Caribbean – made by my friend Jesse Card at St Croix Libation Society where he promote all things rum in the first place and all things booze related. He once also featured one of my drinks and now is the time for me to feature a good libation of his – and this one is a right up my alley because it contains grilled pineapple which is something i like a lot. Jesse also did feature this drink on one of my fav websites – Uncommon Caribbean.

Jesse is originally from Portland, Oregon and moved to St Croix about six years ago.

Trying to be honest & authentic behind the bar, he says it’s all about listening to the guest on the other side that matters – “Just because I love bitters doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t get that Cosmo they’re craving”

Jesse is the Beverage Director at the new Low Life Bar & Refuge, opening this summer on the Christiansted Boardwalk of beautiful St. Croix. And one more thing – he puts up a wicked karaoke show….trust me, i´ve seen it in New Orleans – last summer he made the Saint bar ROCK!

This grilled pineapple recipe comes in the form of a grilled pineapple syrup and since it´s grilled with slightly caramelized demerara sugar it really gives the drink that depth which takes a tropical drink to the next level and with a dash or two of angostura bitters – gives it complexity and some real exotic-ness – a real tasty drink!

I tried the grilled pineapple daiquiri with a good rum – St Nicholas Abbey 12 yo from Barbados (1 oz) and paired it with 1 oz of the strong Jamaican funky rum Smith and Cross – plus fresh lime and the grilled pineapple syrup  – hmmm………..it was good….

So here is how – and if you don´t have these rums you can use any GOOD aged dark rum, like Appleton Extra for example – but i really think the Smith and Cross adds some funk and punch to this drink!

A demerara rum would be very good too – try it with El Dorado 12 yo. Jesse used Cruzan rum – of course – he lives on st Croix after all – but i don´t have that rum so i used the others and the result was very good and as with any daiquiri for that matter – it´s REALLY important to use a good quality rum – skip cheap rums with this!

GRILLED PINEAPPLE CURACAO DAIQUIRI

1 pineapple
2 cups demerera sugar
1 cup water
a few limes
cruzan rum
clement creole shrubb (or cointreau)
angostura bitters

So start with the pineapple…peel and cut out 3 rings, two for the syrup and one for garnish.

Make a simple syrup by adding 2:1 ratio of sugar and water, use a dark demerara sugar and combine in a sauce pan over high heat. Stir it around for a few minutes until the sugar is pretty well dissolved. With the ratio 2:1 you`ll get a rich syrup.

Now to get some flavor, add 2 of the pineapple rings and coat them with the syrup so when we grill it we get a nice caramelization. Now, set the syrup aside for a while and start grilling the syrup coated pineapple rings on a hot grill and let them get that nice slightly charred look.

After grilling is done add them back to your syrup. Heat your syrup back up to a simmer and let it reduce for 15 minutes or so by about a quarter. Remove the pineapple and set the syrup aside to cool.

Combine over ice in a tall glass:

* 1 oz of your fresh grilled pineapple syrup
* 2 oz good dark rum
* 1 oz creole shrubb or cointreau
* 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
* 1 dash angostura bitters

Shake hard and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice.

TIKI LOVERS RUM

Ever heard about Tiki Lovers rum?

I first heard about this rum at the UK Rumfest but i never got a chance to try it out..Luckily now instead it found its way to me and you don´t need to ask me twice if i wanna try out two new rums especially designed for exotic Tiki cocktails.

The lables looks exotic and very Tiki – but does the rum itself  live up to what the labels suggest? and what are the rums in the bottles?

TIKI LOVER`S WHITE RUM

The folks behind this rum are the Bitter Truth under the label Tiki Lovers and there´s a white rum and a dark rum. The white rum is made from pot stilled Jamaican rum that is aged 3-5 years, charcoal filtered and blended with column still rum from Trinidad.

The result is very good, it`has a nose that is a mix of floral, fruit and sugarcane and then i detect some subtle notes of the same flavor that you find in JWray overproof but this one is so subtle, maybe more like a slight hint of RumFire which is like a light JWray if that makes any sense.

The flavor is like the nose but stronger, sweet, floral, smooth with a slightly sharp edge, and it does have character, it won´t disappear in a mixed drink. That is one thing they have got just right, both rums stand up against all those mixers beautifully.

The white rum is not like a little brother to RumFire though – don´t get me wrong – this is a rum of it`s own. This is a white rum that is smooth and nice yet with character with those subtle hints of the flavors you find in JWray and RumFire but with it´s own personality.

It´s a good rum for Tiki drinks that´s for sure! the white rum is 42% alcohol or ABV 84. At the back of the labels are recipes and i`m gonna make one of them with the dark rum.

But let´s move on to the other bottle.

TIKI LOVER´S DARK RUM

The dark rum is much stronger, it´s 57% or ABV 114. My first thought was – is this made to be like the style of Smith and Cross? It`s also Jamaican pot still rum but this one is blended with Barbados rum (most likely Foursquare) as well with a final touch of column still rum from Trinidad and Guyana.

The nose has woody character with burnt sugarcane and dried tropical fruits. The flavor is strong, full bodied and spicy. There`s a slight alcohol burn but not unpleasant and it´s an overproof rum after all.

It´s spicier than Smith and Cross but less funky since Smith & Cross is unfiltered pot still which i find great for mixing but less suitable for sipping unless you have a palate for that, while this rum is more sippable even though it´s overproof. I`m not planning to sit and sip it though, this is made for mixing – specifically tropical/exotic/Tiki drinks.

Tiki Lovers Dark Rum won gold medal recently at the 2011 German Rum Festival as the best overproof rum and i heard some very famous rum experts loved it – well I join that bunch… I think I have two winners here!

The first drink I made was a boozy Planters Punch with the two rums and homemade hibiscus grenadine.

TIKI LOVERS PLANTERS


1 oz Tiki Lovers White Rum

1 oz Tiki Lovers Dark Rum

1 oz fresh lemon juice

1 oz sugarcane syrup

Dash Angostura bitters

1/4-1/2 oz hibiscus grenadine (use homemade or B.G Reynolds) adjust the ratio to your own preference since various grenadines tastes different. A rule of thumb is too much will ruin a drink.

Shake with ice and strain into a zombie glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a pineapple leaf, speared pineapple chunk and cherry.

The hibiscus grenadine really adds a tropical tang to this drink perfectly in harmony with the lemon juice and the high proof spicy dark rum adds punch while the white rum plays nicely in the background with the bitters.

A simpler more straight forward taste description – this is a damned good and strong tropical drink with two perfect rums in the glass! get your asses to the kitchen or bar and start mixing!

The next drink is made with the white rum:

BITTER END


2 oz Tiki Lovers white Rum

1 oz grapefruit juice

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1/2 oz falernum

4 dashes angostura bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a tiki mug or glass  filled with crushed ice and garnish with mint and lime.

I found this drink a bit too sour so i added an extra 0.5 oz demerara syrup. Not sure if the Bitter End is a real Tiki drink or not but it doesn`t matter, these rums suits any tropical style drinks.

Then I made the one at the back of the dark rum label, the Waikiki Punch. There´s many more drinks I wanna try with these two rums which I cannot find space for in this blog post.

WAIKIKI PUNCH


50 ml Tiki Lovers Dark Rum

10 ml Pimento Dram

10 ml Orgeat

20 ml fresh lime juice

60 ml passionfruit juice

Shake with ice and strain into a tiki mug (or glass) filled with crushed ice

This drink just goes down as easily as the Mai Tai…this dark rum blends WELL! oh my YUMMY!

Gotta try a type of Daiquiri too:

TIKI LOVER´S DAIQUIRI


1 oz Tiki Lovers White Rum

1 oz Tiki Lovers Dark Rum

0.75 0z fresh lime juice

0.5-0.75 oz sugarcane syrup, adjust to your taste

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe.

This is a dark boozy daiquiri… suits those who like the flavor of strong rum.

Conclusion: Here´s two excellent Tiki and exotic/tropical drink rums, flavorful and strong enough to stand up against the mixers. That these rums are designed for this type of drinks is evident.

As soon as you can lay your hands on the Tiki Lovers rum you should.

You can get them here.
