A review of rum? On NBRplaza? You are used to read our reviews of sex toys. So what does a review for a bottle of beverage do here? Well, first of all, this is a very decent rum. But Ron Jeremy is also a kind of porn legend. And for that reason alone, a review is entirely appropriate here.
Ron Jeremy is a legend in the porn industry. Born as Ronald Jeremy Hyatt (Flushing, Queens, New York, March 12, 1953), he shortened his name at the request of his father when he started working as a porn actor and porn film director.
Jeremy is referred to as ‘the clown prince of porn’ because of his humor. He is also called ‘the Hedgehog’ because of his hairy back.
Jeremy gained notoriety for being able to blow himself. The fact that he had a 25 cm long penis helped him to perform autofellatio. During his long career, he made at least 2,000 porn movies and had sex with perhaps 4,000 women. That earned him a place in the Guinness Book of Records. It is remarkable that he was always somewhat obese and did not have a very beautiful body.
The origin of Ron de Jeremy rum
In 2004, Olli Hietalahti and Jouko Laune had a beer in a bar. There was an advertising poster of a brand of rum. They noticed that the poster used the Spanish word for rum: Ron.
They wondered who was the most famous Ron they knew. And the answer was: Ron Jeremy!
Thus, the Ron de Jeremy brand was born. They drew the design of a bottle on the back of a coaster on the spot. It was a joke, but when they spoke to Ron Jeremy himself years later, he was immediately enthusiastic. “I received a lot of requests, but I never realized that my name means ‘rum’. Let’s do it!”, was his reply.
I got this bottle of Ron de Jeremy XO for Father’s Day. Granted, I had hinted at my oldest daughter (and told her why it’s so funny that the rum is named after a famous porn actor).
I was hoping this rum would taste like the porn among the rums. You know, in the same way that some clouds are called ‘cloud porn’. When you put the bottle on the table, you have to wait for the reactions of your drinking buddies. Do they smile or blush? Then they know Ron Jeremy all too well!
But would you buy a bottle because of the label? Fortunately, you don’t have to. Because this is seriously good rum! Ron de Jeremy – XO (40%) is a blend of rum from Barbados (Foursquare), Guyana (DDL), Jamaica (several distilleries) and Trinidad (Angostura). You can hardly wish for a much better collection of rum!
The website ‘rumratings‘ rates this rum with a 7.4. And that means that it is recommended for almost everyone.
The Ron de Jeremy XO is a 15 year old brown rum, with a taste that tends towards sweet, caramel, brown sugar and vanilla. This is a rum not to be underestimated.
There are 4 versions of Ron de Jeremy. In addition to the XO (15 years old), there is also a Reserva, XXXO (26 years old), and a spiced. You buy Ron de Jeremy at your local liquor store or at bol.com.
