As I enjoy the taste of rum but don’t drink alcohol anymore I purchased alcohol free Routin 1883 rum syrup which is advertised as ‘characterised by the taste of rum.’ For me it tasted nothing like rum at all, more a mixture of dark treacle and cheap cola. I tried adding it to various fizzy and non fizzy drinks with the result that I felt it make their taste was lessened. I also tried it with a variety of hot drinks as the advert had suggested, such as tea, coffee, chocolate, not hot milk though, as it’s not a favourite of mine. Basically, by adding this product to the drinks it made them sweeter; as to how sweet depends on how much is added. Though I think there are cheaper and more appropriate products that can be used in this manner. Rather than waste it, I’ll use in some cooking.
