Cruzan Raspberry Rum (55 Proof)

While there have been a number of different flavored alcohols that have pervaded the markets in the last few years, a key problem that has surrounded all of them has been a strong fake flavor of whatever type of fruit that the alcohol is supposed to have included. Thus, an orange flavoring would put the alcoholic drink perilously close to a cough syrup type of flavor. However, the latest offerings…

Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum (80 Proof)

Set at $34.99 for a 750ml bottle (a 1.75 L bottle is available as well), Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum would normally be a little out of our price range. However, we were provided with a sample of the rum, and after getting a number of opinions and thought about the overall taste, mouthfeel, and bouquet, we here at NeuFutur felt that an individual that actually purchased a bottle of…

Midori Melon Liqueur

Finally, we come to Midori Melon Liqueur. Of the three types of spirit reviewed in this panel, the highest interest was toward this Liqueur.

The alcohol content is similar to that of Zen Green Tea Liqueur – 40 proof, or 20%…

Zen Green Tea Liqueur

Zen Green Tea Liqueur is an even better of the concoction that I made back in my fraternity days, when I mixed Iced Tea with cheap whiskey. However, there are some key differences between Zen Green Tea Liqueur and that Frankenstein’s creation, in that it literally tastes like Green Tea, while still having a decent enough alcoholic content (40 proof, or 20% alcohol by volume). Green tea leaves are ground…

O2 Sparkling Vodka

O2 Sparkling Vodka / 2008 International English Distillers / 80 Proof / http://www.sparklingvodka.com / This is another inaugural type of review for NeuFutur. Where we just had our first peripheral (the Pro|Click Mobile Mouse) reviewed yesterday, we have our first alcohol reviewed today. First off, I have to give massive kudos to International English Distillers (and Admiral Imports) for being so liberal with the vodka. I had fully expected a…
