SelvaRey — finest often known as Bruno Mars’ rum firm — is out with its latest expression: Coconut. No enormous surprises await right here. It is a two 12 months outdated rum, filtered to clear, infused with “a velvety coconut essence.”
As coconut rums go, SelvaRey doesn’t precisely elevate the bar. A bit harsh on the nostril, the aromatics are pushed extra by industrial notes than coconut, coming throughout as neither candy nor significantly tropical, with extra of a toasty milk chocolate and graham cracker character wafting from the glass alongside the boozier notes. I used to be anticipating a wealthy and candy character on the palate however was shocked to discover a quite quiet, considerably watery expertise within the glass. There merely isn’t sufficient coconut taste within the combine to actually resonate right here — once more with industrial and vaguely candy components taking middle stage — with the end surprisingly taking a visit from skinny to quite gummy in texture.
Strive Rhum Clement’s coconut liqueur instead.
