Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum: A Tropical Paradise in Every Sip

Calling all rum lovers and adventurers! Set sail for a taste of the tropics with Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum, available now at The General Wine Co. This unique expression from Australia's Cargo Cult rum range is a delightful concoction, bursting with ripe banana flavours and a symphony of warming spices.

A Rum Steeped in Sunshine

Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum starts its journey in the sun-drenched fields of North Queensland, Australia. Here, premium bananas are hand-selected for their sweetness and tropical character. These bananas are then infused into a blend of Fijian and Papua New Guinean rums, creating a base spirit brimming with vibrant fruit notes.

The rum isn't done yet! To add further complexity and intrigue, a secret blend of spices is meticulously introduced. Imagine a whisper of cinnamon's warmth, the gentle embrace of nutmeg's earthiness, the piquant intrigue of ginger, and the smooth touch of vanilla. These aromatic spices dance with the banana, creating a truly captivating aroma.

Tasting Notes: A Tropical Explosion

Nose: The moment you uncork the bottle, a wave of tropical sunshine washes over you. The dominant aroma is, of course, ripe banana – sweet, inviting, and instantly evocative of warm island breezes. But beneath the banana lies a captivating layer of complexity. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg peek through, promising a touch of warmth, while vanilla adds a touch of creamy sweetness.

Palate: The first sip of Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum is a revelation. The banana flavour takes centre stage, bursting onto the palate with a juicy sweetness. It's not overly sweet, however, finding a delightful balance thanks to the underlying rum character. The spices then come into play, adding a subtle warmth that complements rather than overpowers the banana. Cinnamon provides a gentle heat, nutmeg offers a hint of earthiness, and ginger adds a touch of zesty freshness. The vanilla ties everything together, leaving a smooth and creamy finish.

Finish: The finish of Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum is surprisingly dry, leaving a pleasant and lingering tingle of spice on the tongue. This dryness prevents the rum from feeling cloying and ensures a clean, refreshing aftertaste.

Serving Suggestions: A Versatile Delight

Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum's versatility makes it a true crowd-pleaser. Enjoy it neat to fully appreciate the symphony of flavours, or add a splash of ice for a touch of refreshment on a warm day. Here are a few additional serving suggestions to tantalise your taste buds:

  • The Tropical Twist: Combine Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum with pineapple juice, lime juice, and grenadine for a taste of the Caribbean. Shake with ice and strain into a coupette glass for a vibrant and refreshing cocktail.
  • The Spiced Old Fashioned: Give this classic cocktail a tropical twist by using Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum instead of traditional bourbon. Combine with a dash of Angostura bitters, a sugar cube, and a splash of water. Stir well and garnish with an orange peel and a maraschino cherry for a unique and flavourful twist.
  • The Banana Daiquiri: This rum's natural banana flavour makes it a perfect base for a delectable Daiquiri. Combine Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum with fresh lime juice and simple syrup. Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass for a classic and satisfying cocktail.

In Conclusion: Escape the Ordinary
