78/100, Bronze Medal, ‘Recommended mixer’
The Rum Howler continues his review of The Wild Geese Rum Collection. Next up is the Caribbean Spiced, which receives 78/100 and is recognised as a ‘recommended mixer’.
‘… the possibilities for mixing the Caribbean Spiced Rum seems to be opening up in front of me as I sip. The initial flavour impressions I receive across the palate are similar to what I experienced as I nosed the glass. I sense a trio of fruitiness which resembles cherry liquorice, fresh mango and sliced pineapple…’
The Wild Geese Rum Collection tells the story of the Irish in the Caribbean.
VOYAGES AND MEN
Ireland was torn by injustice and natural disaster. In the years leading up to the Treaty of Limerick in 1691, when The Exiles took the name The Wild Geese believing they would one day return, many had already been forced from their homes and transported to the Caribbean and Americas to work on plantations.
Sent into darkness and exile they did not flinch when faced with this unimaginable horror. Many rebellions were to follow. Their story has largely been untold until now.
Determined to win freedom, those that escaped, blazed a trail across the endless blue as liberators and pirates of the Caribbean. Navigating their way across the featureless seas and against all odds their only option being to survive and succeed.
‘BY THE SWEAT OF OUR BROW AND THE STRENGTH OF OUR BACKS YOU WILL KNOW OUR COURAGE’
Wherever you are in the world, if you are of Irish descent you are part of this story and entitled to call yourself ‘Wild Geese’.
