Rated A Reviews Rum

Review: Oronoco Rum


This distinctively packaged rum comes from the mountains of Brazil, a land known mainly for cachaca, not rum. It’s a pity: Based on Oronoco’s showing, Brazil really ought to be making more of the stuff.

This white rum is exceptionally smooth and creamy, offering an immediate vanilla nose. On the palate is offers a big mouthful of vanilla/creme brulee, plus some cinammon notes, with a lightly woodsy finish. Exceptionally smooth, this rum is totally sippable on the rocks but of course works well with any kind of sweet cocktail. Anywhere you want that vanilla character to shine, reach for Oronoco.

    This one *is* nice. One can’t help but admire the stamped-leather label.

    This rum just magically appeared in my local liquor store this week. $19.99 a bottle– what a steal! I’m enjoying a great caipirissima as I type. At this price, I’ll have to swing back by the liquor store and stock up before they’re gone.

    I love this stuff. I picked up a bottle about a week ago and it was half gone in one night haha. A little pricier than i would like it to be, but totally worth it.

    i got a liter for 11.99, whereas the 750 ml was 34.99… is this marketing?

    That is a mistake. Buy it up.
