Sure, people, the inevitable has occurred. The rock band Kiss now has its personal line of spirits (which launched abroad and at the moment are obtainable stateside). Oddly, three expressions of rum and one gin. We acquired a take a look at one of many rum releases, Detroit Rock Premium Darkish Rum, which is a collection of Dominican rums 8 to fifteen years previous. That’s not a shabby pedigree. To wit:
“We wished every spirit within the portfolio to mirror the vitality of our band. We didn’t simply slap a label on and name it a day, we’re proud to say that every bottle within the Drink It Up By KISS portfolio was fastidiously curated and every distinctive spirit has earned its title,” says KISS Founding Member, Paul Stanley.
Satirically, each Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are lifelong non-drinkers.
Anyway, the rum isn’t any joke. Wealthy on the nostril with candy brown sugar, adopted by cherry juice, espresso bean, vanilla syrup, the rum opens as much as reveal a big be aware of chocolate and well-toasted, virtually burnt, marshmallow with time in glass. The palate is sort of candy and winey in the way in which that older rums can typically be, displaying Madeira and tawny Port notes, although this melds properly with a core of liquid caramel, extra of that burnt marshmallow, and a curiously fruity be aware later within the sport — baked apples, maybe? Toasty however not overblown with wooden, the end retains the deal with the rum’s extra (brown) sugary parts, once more displaying itself as overbearingly fruity — maybe an excessive amount of so by this level — with notes of overripe apples and strawberry rising clearly because it fades out. I’d combine with it.
