Review: Jumbie Pineapple Splash

Jumbie Pineapple SplashJumbie Pineapple Splash is one of four flavor infused rums made with a blend of barrel aged rum distilled in Panama by the Jumbie Trading Company.  The other flavors include Coconut, Vanilla, and Mango.  Bottled at 48 proof with a splash of natural pineapple flavor, Jumbie Pineapple Splash is priced to compete with the Malibu, Cruzan, and Captain Morgan Pineapple flavored rums.  While it may be a little harder to find than those big International Brands, if it tastes as good as the previously reviewed Jumbie Coconut Splash, it may be worth the time spent searching for it.
