A Review of Tortuga Caribbean Rum and Rum Cake


Here’s a little inside BoozeDancing TV for you…

Whenever we saddle up to The Murder Table, we maximize our time and try to shoot three to four videos per session. On a Friday night not so long ago, we started off the night with one beer review and two whiskey reviews. For round four, we decided to review a Caribbean Rum and a Caribbean Rum Cake that just happened to be made with the Rum that we would be tasting during our final video. Cause who doesn’t like a bit of dessert with their booze? We certainly do!

This Rum/Rum Cake pairing was gifted to me by a co-worker who took a little trip to the Cayman Islands with his wife for a bit of R&R. The brand is called Tortuga Rum Cakes. You’ve probably stumbled upon them in many an airport or cruise ship gift shop in your travels.

Before we get to the review, here are a few words about the Rum and the Rum Cake taken directly from the Tortuga Rum Cake website:

The Rum: Enjoy the Spirit of the Islands! Tortuga’s unique aged oak barrel process gives this rum its deep mellow flavor, and fine medium body to achieve one of the most enjoyable spirits produced in the Caribbean.

The Rum Cake: Our World Famous Tortuga Golden Original Rum Cakes with Walnuts are baked in the Caribbean with only the finest ingredients, including imported walnuts. Each rum cake is hand glazed with special 5-year-old, oak barrel aged Tortuga Gold Rum then vacuum sealed to lock in the delicious freshness. The cakes have a shelf life of 12 months, or indefinitely if refrigerated or frozen.
