Fosters Rocks Spice Rum Review
Not a combination I’ve ever had before nor desired but interesting nonetheless. Foster’s Rocks also comes in Classic Rum flavour. Well, it looks like a lager, bubbly, yellow and with a head but the taste is remarkably differentb and nothing like a lager.
The initial taste is of a festive mulled wine type flavour infused with cinnamon which then goes into a strong spiced alcohol taste and feel as it goes down your throat with a slightly bitter aftertaste. I don’t know why, but it does feel like a strong drink even though its just 4.5%, maybe its because its in a can so you dont expect a strong alcoholic feel to it. I’m a drinker so I can handle a drink or two but I do feel the alcohol content with this drink, and thats with just half the can.
Does it taste like rum with beer though? To me, it does a little bit, its just the spices give it more of a festive drink taste but it does have a slight lagery aftertaste but initially no, you just have more of a spiced alcohol flavour than anything else.
Is it nice though? Do I like it? thats a good question. To answer that I’d have to answer that in the classic question of would I buy that again? and the answer is probably not, not for me. I couldnt drink a lot of this because it has too strong a spice taste and a linger taste for me that have a few cans of these. Would I have one occasionally? Maybe, but its not like the other drinks like the Morgan Rum & Cola cans which are small and seem less alcoholic because of the size of this 440ml can, it would be too much hard work to finish a 4 pack of these, I don’t think I would enjoy it at all
But it has a half decent weird flavour, and may suit people who dont necessarily like the taste of lager but would like a bit more flavour in their can.
