Review: RumChata (Limited Edition Bottle)

As we come close to the 4th of July, the Fewd Snobs wanted to do a review focused around the holiday.  What better way to celebrate our country’s independence than to review some booze??!!

All laughs aside, what brought our attention to RumChata as our 4th of July review is the limited edition bottle.  The RumChata logo is colored in the red, white, and blue.  When we saw that, we knew the decision of what to review for the 4th was made!

RumChata isn’t new, but it is a Fewd Snobs’ favorite.  It was introduced to Denny years ago by his brother.  Denny’s brother and his friends affectionately refer to it as “Cambodian Breast Milk!”  This makes no sense, and we don’t know why they call it that, but sure, why not??!!

IMG_20150630_213850941RumChata is based on horchata.  If you don’t know what that is, click here.  The bottle says, “Caribbean Rum With Real Dairy Cream.”  You can find more details on what it is made with on the RumChata website.

RumChata can be kept refrigerated, or it can be kept at room temperature.  This surprised us because it is made with real cream.  According to RumChata, “The cream has been homogenized with the rum and the alcohol acts as a preservative.”  So that explains why it can be kept at room temp.

RumChata is 13.75% alcohol.  So it isn’t loaded with booze, and won’t immediately get you messed up.  But it is heaven in a shot glass, so we don’t care.

There are tons of ways to drink this stuff.  It can be served on its own, it can be a mixer, and it can even be used to make food!  There are a bunch of recipes on the RumChata site.  Seriously, you need to check this out.  There are endless options.  Our preference is to drink it as a shot.

The best way to describe the flavor is it tastes just like the milk that is left after a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal!  That is it!  There’s nothing else to say!!  The cream flavor is there, and there is a cinnamon hint to it.  At least that’s how we see it.  It is mainly sweet, but there IS a little kick to it, too.

All that really needs to be said is that this stuff rocks.  Seriously.  It is a great “fun shot” to have throughout a night of drinking.  Everybody will like it because it tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch milk!  Even the kids will like it!  Here we go again promoting under-age drinking!  We mean, no kids!  You can’t have any!

One final thing to say.  RumChata may give you a little sticker shock.  It isn’t cheap.  Where we are, a 750ml bottle runs about $20.  But it is so friggin’ good that we think it is worth the cost.

So that’s enough for the review portion.  RumChata is great.  Go get some.  Right now.

Like we said earlier, what drew us to reviewing RumChata and tying it to Independence Day was the bottle.  The logo has been colored with red, white, and blue.  Admittedly, we were kinda thinking, “WTF??”  See if you can keep up with our thoughts here.., “RumChata is based on horchata which is now associated with Mexican food.  Yet there is Caribbean rum in it.  So we don’t think of America with this drink.  Yet the bottle is using the flag colors.  What the hell.”

So, we did something we never did before.  We turned the bottle over, and saw that RumChata is made in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.  Ohhhhhhh.  So that clears it up.  It all makes sense now!  Are we drunk yet??

To tie in with the 4th of July theme, this was on the bottle…

IMG_20150630_214305665This is pretty damn cool.  What a great way to celebrate our freedom.  We think that everyone will agree that it is pretty cool to have the point of the limited edition bottle tied into supporting a great foundation.  Learn more about the Lone Survivor Foundation here.

It’s the 4th of July, people.  Celebrate, drink, and go out and get a limited edition bottle of RumChata to support a great cause.

Happy Independence Day!
