Sweet Little Drinks Cream Egg Rum
Sweet Little Drinks recently announced a new Cream Egg flavour rum to coincide with Easter, and lucky for me they kindly sent me their new creation to review. Thanks so much Sweet Little Drinks! You can find it on their website along with several other interesting gin, rum and liquer flavours. There's combinations like Bounty, Rum and Raisin, Banoffee Pie, Donut, Pear Drops and...Maple Bacon!
I was of course super curious if this would taste like Cadbury Creme Egg. Note that it doesn't use the actual words Crème Egg, which I presume is because of copyright, but we all know that's what it’s meant to be. The alcohol percentage is 18%.
I chilled it in the fridge, and after a long stressful day poured some into my Root 7 glass. The perfect glass for a drink like this.
It has a strong sweet vanilla aroma, which is reminiscent of Crème Egg as much as is possible. And it’s dangerously easy to drink...it's soft, sweet with a lovely strong vanilla edge...and there's even a hint of chocolate in there too! I'm not sure how they've achieved this but it's as much a Crème Egg flavour as you can get in a rum, I would imagine. I really enjoyed it - but like I said it's dangerously easy to drink. Usually with rum I'll sip it slowly or mix it with something else...but this doesn't need it at all.
Overall, I have to say this is a very interesting drink from Sweet Little Drinks and fits the Easter season nicely. I imagine it'd go down particularly well with some hot cross buns!
