For years David Cordoba was the face of Bacardi across six of the World’s continents and as he says on his own rum’s label, “The Lovers Rum represents our epic journey across the world in search of a rum blend to make the perfect Daiquiri.” This is a rum for Daiquiri lovers.
Blended and bottled to David and his partner, Arijit Bose (Mr Daiquiri Pie Ltd) exacting specifications in the Netherlands, The Lovers Rum encompasses rums sourced from Barbados, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panama with an approximate age of 2.5 to 3 years.

The packaging is inspired by the Lovers Tarot card, the sixth trump or Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks. Hence VI reference on this rum’s front label depicting a colourful alluring woman. Viewed through the back of the bottle, the woman is depicted in black and white on the reverse of the front label but is naked and draped with a strategically placed serpent.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 25/10/2018

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Toffee, muscovado sugar, newly sawn oak/pencil shavings, pineapple, passion fruit and cinnamon spice.

Taste:

Light to medium-bodied. Assertive cinnamon and red peppercorn spice, toasty oak, passion fruit, pineapple and citrus.

Aftertaste:

The finish is fruitier with more passion fruit and pineapple wrapped in lightly spiced oak.

Overall:

Perhaps this should be renamed Daiquiri Lover’s Rum, as this rum was created and blended with this particular cocktail in mind. With elegant spice, subtle pineapple and passion fruit, it does indeed make for a very tasty Daiquiri.
