Default Kweyol Spiced Rum / St. Lucia

I rec'd an email from someone returning from St. Lucia, enamoured by the Kweyol Spiced Rum. Anyone know anything about this?

Thanks,
Eric

OK, with a change of spelling found more info on this forum - of course. Nonetheless, any impressions or thoughts appreciated...

It is very unique with the piece of Bois Bande tree bark inside the bottle. It is supposed to have the same effect as Viagra!! Hence the label with the silouhette of a naked lady
Great, smooth, spicy aromas. A little burn going down if drank neat, but mixes well. A nice change to the Capt. But unfortunately only sells if we are out of Capt.
A great addition to any rum collection especially if you liked spiced rums.
Apparently the bark of the Richeria Grandis tree is not allowed to be harvested in Dominica anymore. Not sure if this is to protect the trees or the people using the bark!!! The native indians were the first to discover this. It is not surprising then that Dominica still has some native Caribbean still surviving today.

Yes, the bark in the Kweyol Spiced Rum does work, but much better than Viagra. It's faster acting and longer lasting. I will not be serving it again at any more formal tastings at my home, though.

Of all of the bois bande spiced rums in the islands, this is one of the smoothest due in part to the cane sugar in the recipe Kwйyуl Spice Rum

I tried some rum my friends brought back from the Dominican Republic. It had some kind of bark in the bottle and it also was supposed to have somewhat magical properties akin to a cream lovingly referred to as MAINTAIN.

Apparently this rum must be consumed very quickly after bottling as the Bark flavour is very aggressive. By the time we tried the mixture (which was six months after bottling) the flavour of bark was overwhelming. Alas I could not bring myself to even swallow the stuff as it tasted positively terrible. I'll never know if the supposed magical properties were MAINTAINED in the bottle or not.

Most of the rums you describe from the Dominican Republic aren't sold for export as most countries won't let you import them. In the islands, these rums are consumed fairly quickly and then the bottle is refilled. Six months will definitely yield a very bitter drink.

You can empty that bottle, refill and dilute some of the bitter spirit with other rum but the bitter taste of the wood/bark will probably prevail.
