Yes, you read that right. If you didn’t already know, Ron Jeremy has rum out on the market called Ron de Jeremy. It’s tagline? Long Smooth Taste. But of course. I will try and keep the bad puns to a minimum.
First, if you don’t know who Ron Jeremy is you are either really pure of heart or have been leaving under a rock. Ron “the Hedgehog” Jeremy is the most famous male adult entertainment star in the world. He is a worldwide legend, ranked by AVN as number one in “The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time” list. They have rankings for porn stars?
I know that kind of stuff isn’t for everyone, but a bottle of rum with his name and face on it in your collection will definitely be a conversation starter.
Olli, the CEO of One Eyed Spirits, was good enough to send me a bottle of Ron de Jeremy rum so I could give it a taste. Thank you Olli.
I really wasn’t expecting much when it came to taste. I was guessing that this was more of a marketing gimmick than an quality product. When the bottle arrived and I popped the cork for the first time and let the aroma greet my nose, I knew right then that Ron de Jeremy rum had a lot more character than I was expecting.
Below is a taste testing video I shot on Lovers Key a couple days ago.
My buddy Carl, over at Coastlines & Tan Lines also received a bottle of Ron de Jeremy rum. We thought it would be cool to partner up and give you guys two different perspectives of the rum. After all, taste is such a subjective thing.
Ron de Jeremy Rum is an exceptionally well-balanced 7-year old rum from Panama. It has an inviting light amber color with very attractive copper hues. The aroma is that of carefully aged rum, with a harmoniously balanced orchestra of oak, fruit and spices. In the palate it opens up smoothly, showcasing a high level of craftsmanship. The oak comes through robustly and satisfyingly, yet gently enough to allow hints of vanilla and raw sugarcane to reveal them selves. The finish is elegant and long, true to the aromas and flavors previously experienced. Ron de Jeremy sips perfectly, naked or savored over the rocks, and mixes beautifully to make Ron’s many signature drinkxxx. It is the adult rum.
Ron de Jeremy Rum is hand crafted by another legend, 72-year old Cuban Master Distiller Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez. Don Pancho is one of the most experienced and renowned Master Distillers in the rum industry today. His skills have been directly responsible for the success of countless rum brands. Don Pancho inspected his best barrels to hand pick the ones worthy of becoming Ron de Jeremy. It is this attention to detail that will reward the senses of those fortunate enough to try this perfectly distilled and aged rum. (From rondejeremy.com)
Like I said in the video, I’m no rum expert, but I do know what I like and what I don’t. Ron de Jeremy rum is a good quality rum with a great taste that will have you begging for more long into the night (Bad pun?). I’ve been drinking it neat for a couple weeks now and continue to enjoy thoroughly.
