Review: Lola Belle Cherry Rum

lola-belle-cherry-rum-copyLola Belle Cherry Rum is named for a legendary burlesque dancer who adorned herself with cherries on stage.  It is made with Caribbean rum and infused with dark maraschino cherries.  Lola Belle Cherry Rum is a rum I have seen on many a liquor store shelf, but the $19.99 price and several options I felt at the time were better, prevented me from picking up a bottle.  I purchased this bottle for $12.99.  After finding the site no longer active, and Lola Belle no longer appearing on the Proximo webpage, I have concluded this rum is not longer produced.  I still see it on liquor store shelves and I picked up my bottle yesterday.  That said at some point supply will be limited.

Review: Malibu Cranberry Cherry Rum

Malibu cranberry cherry - CopyMalibu Cranberry Cherry rum was introduced May 2011,  It was the winner with 62% of the vote in a contest Malibu featured on their Facebook page allowing their fans to select their next rum flavor.  It beat out Citrus and a Mint flavor.  While you can still find Cranberry Cherry on some liquor store shelves you better act quick as it is no longer a featured flavor on the Malibu rum website.  In an interesting twist Malibu released Sunshine, a citrus flavored rum in 2012.  Malibu starts with molasses from the finest sugarcane and it is triple distilled at the West Indies Distillery in Barbados.  Natural flavors are added in Canada where it is bottled.
